Style, Decor & More: Get Glowing with Shared Planet's Cruelty-Free Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette

Get Glowing with Shared Planet's Cruelty-Free Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette

Disclosure: Style, Decor & More received a PR sample to facilitate this post.

If you love sea turtles as much as I do, you will flip over the new limited-edition highlighter palette from Shared Planet. Inspired by the beauty of majestic sea turtles, this shimmery Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette has five pearlescent shades to create a GORGEOUS, lit-from-within glow. I will dive deeper into this luxurious turtle-themed face palette in a moment, but first I want to introduce you to the brand and why it stands out in the beauty world.  

Shared Planet is a vegan and cruelty-free Indie brand known for creating cosmetic collections inspired by at-risk animals. The founder, Aashna Sharma, is young lady who is determined to combine her passions of animals and makeup into a single project and make a global difference. Shared Planet donates 10% of sales to its animal and habitat-related charity partners and is committed to keeping its use of plastics to an absolute minimum. Did you know that a recent study found that 100 percent of sea turtles had plastic or microplastics in their system? It's heartbreaking! That's why Shared Planet makes it their brand ethos to be as thoughtful as possible with what they put out into the environment, including their packaging material. Shared Planet's palettes are made of paperboard and hand wrapped in foil paper

ALL SHARED PLANET PRODUCTS ARE CRUELTY-FREE/LEAPING BUNNY CERTIFIED, VEGAN, CHILD-LABOR FREE, ETHICALLY SOURCED, PARABEN-FREE, GLUTEN AND GMO-FREE 

Being mindful of the beauty brand choices we make today is one of the first steps we can take to a greener and happier planet. That's why when I first learned of Shared Planet's commitment to animals, I was thrilled to sample the Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette. Shared Planet realizes the sea turtle plays a vital role in preserving a healthy marine ecosystem and that with sea turtle populations declining, it is important now more than ever to make a difference. 


Capturing the beauty of the Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette in photos is difficult. You can't feel high-quality ingredients or the substantial weight (over 1/2 pound) of its packaging and you can't see the elegant look of the holographic foil as it catches the light. Take my word for it. The palette is BEAUTIFUL and the metallic powder hues are creamy smooth and melt into the skin.


Where to start with this glistening beauty must-have? Begin by applying a good primer and a dewy foundation to even out your skin tone and create a luminous base. Dress up your eyes with a coat or two of mascara and add color as you normally would with blush and/or eyeshadow. Now, you're ready to shine your light on the world with shimmering highlights.


Decide which of your features you want to showcase and sweep highlighter over the highest points. Dab highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes for soft color and a dazzling, dimensional glow. White Sands, Sun Kissed, and Coral Reef colors can be swept across cheekbones, browbones, cupid's bow of the lips, the bridge of your nose, the high points of your décolleté, and wherever you want a boost of natural radiance. Going for a bold evening look? Add highlighter over your classic smokey eye to amp up the glow and intensify the smokey effect. 

The finished result is a gorgeous, shimmery look that lasts for hours, resists cracking and smudging throughout the day, and has minimal transfer and fallout.

The Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette is the third animal-inspired beauty collection for the young indie brand who launched in October 2019, solely to bring awareness to animals on the ‘to be extinct’ list.  Starting with their first two collections, Tiger and Polar Bear, the initial assortment included eye shadow palettes and lip glosses inspired by the colors of the two animals and their natural habitat. The palette retails for $48.00 and as always,  the brand donates 10% of sales to its animal and habitat-related charity partners.

  1. I've mostly stuck with liquid highlighter but this palette has me rethinking a powder highlighter. The colors are pretty and I think it is great that I can support sea turtle conservation with my purchase.

  2. I just love the ethos of Shared Planet and similar organisations for the values that they stand for. We should all be supporting them for the contribution they make to the future - aside from the fact that these products look fabulous anyway!
