Tulip Body Art Paint Palette Review (Neon)

I was in the craft store the other day and decided to pick up this palette as I have taken a liking to face painting recently. I only paid $6 (it was originally $12) because I had a coupon and you bet I was glad, because this product did not deliver as much as I thought it would.

Only the top row glowed (most of the top row colors are always the brightest from UV black light paints I have found), and I needed to pack on a lot of the product (which wasn’t much to begin with for a little square) to get anything nice. I used a little tiny brush to get the ombre makeup look, I will add more photos as I use up the palette.

Basically, do NOT buy this. I would rather spend a bit more money for a professional brand and better quality, this palette would be if I had nothing else. It was very fun to experiment and have fun with, but I had to apply coats, really wet the square to pick up product etc. if kids are happy at a party then I guess it’s fine in the short term, but I plan to further my progress in face paint/body art, so I will continue searching for better products πŸ™‚

  1. That takes me back, I spent hours painting a leopards face in fluorescent paint on my cut down leather jacket (worn over the top of my motorbike leather).
    Ever thought of doing makeup for cosplay? Seems to be a growing market..

    • wow that sounds so cool! How did it come out? I want to see photos! I have been wanting to modify a jacket to make it punk, I wanted a lavender jacket though. haha, I’m so particular. It would be my version of punk though…slowly gathering the materials for that.

      I can’t wait to take black light photos with black light reactive contact lenses! It’s so hard though, I can’t choose which color!

      I have taken cosplay photos for people and MIGHT have a few offers in the future, actually πŸ™‚ . Animazement (a con) was this weekend but I couldn’t go because of work, I wasted my money on the ticket I bought for the event 😦 . My friend I made black light eyelashes for is going to a rave, that’s what made me buy the paint, and since I am not going I got all painted up with nowhere to go haha. Do you like cosplaying, conventions, anime etc.?

      • Unfortunately that was long before I got into photography.. I liked it and I was told by others that it looked good, especially at night with a headlamp on it πŸ™‚
        Get an old denim, bleach it and tie dye it, rip the arms off then paint away, I reckon that hippy-punk could be the way forwards (yeah, I have no taste I know). Can you get violet? I think that suits you well..
        Never done cosplay, never been to a convention, but having seen the movie Paul, I could get into trying the convention thing, looks like good fun. I like looking at anime but couldn’t name any of it to save my life πŸ˜€
        I must admit I can see an interesting business side to it all though, hair, makeup, costumes, huge guns and swords, and of course, the photography, sounds like a good one stop shop to me πŸ˜€

      • aaah okay! I bet it looked awesome, I want to try that out! and of course I owe you all the inspiration :). I actually went thrifting this week and white washed a denim jacket (got it for $4!!), and am looking for things to decorate it with now! I loved the whole creative process of it. I need to learn how to make patches for the jacket now. I have no idea how to sew yet but have always wanted to learn the basics, then make clothes, props etc. omg, I was planning on doing a rainbow one too! after the purple and black versions. I guess we both have no taste..? haha!

        haha a lot of people are like that though! yeah it’s a huge business. A few years ago when I had just started blogging, I was commissioned to make shoes for a company that specializes in anime, the main artist draws his own anime characters and sells them at the conventions: https://apeanutbutterfiend.wordpress.com/2013/06/23/boomslank-shoes/ and https://apeanutbutterfiend.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/boomslank-shoes-ii/

      • I have a small (40 psi) compressor and one gun plus two air brushes, all vintage DeVilbiss.. Spraying on whitewashed denim?
        I guess if there is a business then I will usually spot it last πŸ˜€
        Sewing.. I would think its more embroidery for patches?
        No taste is good taste!
