Shared Planet Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette | Review and Swatches

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Shared Planet Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette is a stunning cruelty-free and vegan highlighting palette, and Shared Planet is donating 10% of the proceeds from the sale to The Sea Turtle Conservancy. Not only is this eco-friendly and socially responsible brand creating excellent quality highlighters, but their philanthropic mission is helping to save endangered species.

Each of the five highlighters in this palette, which can be used on the face and body, are ultra-finely milled powders that are creamy to the touch. They deposit color evenly, they glide across the skin effortlessly, and they offer buildable coverage. Additionally, they neither emphasize fine lines, nor pore size. The shimmer and pigmentation are impressive, and it you prefer a subtle wash of color these highlighters blend effortlessly. Of course the five shades in the palette can be used separately, but they can also be mixed and blended together.
According to Shared Planet,

Shared Planet™, the vegan beauty brand known for creating color cosmetic product collections inspired by at-risk animals, today announced the launch of their newest product, a highlighting face palette inspired by the majestic Sea Turtle which is dedicated to its conservation and well-being.

This is the 3rd 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 brand donates 10% of sales to its animal and habitat-related charity partners.
About the Sea Turtle Palette,

Sea Turtles play a vital role in preserving a healthy marine ecosystem.  As Sea Turtle populations decline, so does their ability to perform this critical function.  Shared Planet’s collection of shimmering, pearlescent highlighters is inspired by the colors of the Sea Turtle and was created to shed light on the plight of this animal.  

The Shared Planet™ Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette contains 5 warm golden shades designed to complement all skin tones.  Each metallic hue imparts a sheer wash of color that melts into skin, layering together to create a natural, lit from within, radiance.  Dust over cheeks, brow bone, cupid’s bow, bridge of nose or any high point on the face or body for a multidimensional glow.

All Shared Planet is committed to keeping its use of plastics to an absolute minimum.  Our brand ethos is to be as thoughtful as possible with regard to anything we put out into the environment, including the packaging we crate.  For that reason, our palettes are made of paperboard and hand wrapped in foil paper.
The Sea Turtle Highlighting Palette is available exclusively on the Shared Planet website, and the palette retails for $44.00. 10% of all sales will be donated to animal and habitat-related charities, including its newest charity partner, The Sea Turtle Conservancy.
According to Aashna Sharma, Founder of Shared Planet,

Ninety-nine percent of all species that have ever lived have gone extinct over the course of five mass extinctions, which, in the past, were largely a result of natural causes such as volcano eruptions and asteroid impacts. Today, the rate of extinction is occurring 1,000 to 10,000 times faster because of human activity. The main modern causes of extinction are the loss of habitat due to deforestation and climate change.

There are also other threats to species such as the pervasive plastic pollution in the ocean.  A recent study found that 100 percent of sea turtles had plastic or microplastic in their systems.

  1. What a wonderful concept - endangered animals - to focus on and support financially! This is a very original highlighting palette. I would be tempted to use these pigmented shades as eye shadows!

    1. I completely agree! I thought the same thing, but I am not sure if they can be used on the eyes, and it doesn't say that it is anywhere in the product information.

  6. What unusual colors for highlighting. Someone older (looking in the mirror) would have trouble with that but I'd say that they'd make stunning eyeshadows. It is a great cause as are their other palettes.
