Sonjdra Deluxe’s NEW Palette With Deck of Scarlet~Review

Deck Of Scarlet ~ Review by Rachel Lisa, Contributing Beauty Expert

Ladies, we’ve all seen the masses of curated monthly ‘try-me’ sized subscriptions out there. From makeup to skincare to nails, hair and even clothing, the options can be overwhelming and even repetitive. I can’t tell you how many can of travel-sized dry shampoo I’ve received  in the last year. And to be honest, as a professional makeup artist, their contents often bore me. Until Deck of Scarlet showed up on my doorstep.

What is it?

Deck of Scarlet has nothing trial-sized about it. It’s a full-sized makeup palette an eyeliner included, delivered to your door every two months for only $29.95. To top it off, each palette is curated by a professional makeup artist to ensure you can get multiple looks, from daytime to dramatic out of each palette and stay on trend. My initial palette was co-created by top YouTube Beauty-Expert Sonjdra Deluxe, which had 3 eyeshadows, 2 lip colors, and eyeliner, and 1 each powder and cream blush included.

First impressions: Let’s be honest, how cool is that name? It just SOUNDS sexy, and it is! Also this baby comes packaged in a super sturdy box with nothing flimsy about it. Even the layout of the palette was innovative and unique.

Putting it to the test:

This makeup is no joke. At $29.99, I was skeptical on the quality of this palette, but I was blown away. Pigmentation, blendability, it’s all there. And as promised, I found at least 4 ways to use this palette for different effects, which I was excited about, because I ended up loving a few colors that I might now have normally purchased, but their online tutorials made it all even easier to use. I will say that I think it’s assumed that most people who will subscribe to this palette already own some basic eyeshadow colors, as with my skin tone, I had to reach for a light cream shade to use beneath my brow bone, but if you don’t own a color like that, this box might not be for you. Or you might be a straight man.

Final Verdict:

I love love LOVE this idea and this service. While I received my palette gratis for review as a beauty contributor, I immediately went to my computer and signed up for my own subscription. Get yours at
