these are smooth colors that are not too powdery and stay relatively long time on the eyelids (i carry it in my bag for touch ups, but its not obligatory). this is the eyeshadow palette that i use all the time for work because of the natural matte browns in it. i like to mix the lightest color with the light brown and use that for my eyelid. then i work with the darker brown colors for crease and outer corner. one problem with it though, the pink color has lots of shimmer fall outs, so for that reason that pink is absolutely unusable for me.
This is just so adorable, the eyeshadow palette itself looks like a paint canvas. I absolutely fell in love when I saw this online and in person. I went to Target and CVS and they both don't carry it near where I live. But Walmart carries it!! It has the best combinations of neutral colors (matte and shimmery shadows) and you can swirl any colors to make a new one. I swirl the light beige color with the medium brown color to make a nude tan color and then I use the medium brown again to contour my crease. The dark brown can be used to do a darker smokey eye.. I use the light beige color with the shimmery pink color for my brow bone and inner corners. PERFECT ALONE or in COMBINATIONS. I have been using the Urban Decay Naked Palette and many other high-end neutral palettes but I have been on a stay away from harsh chemicals binge. And this palette did the trick, there are no parabens or paraffins and etc. Milani website lists all the ingredients. I would definitely repurchase if I ran out :D I wish they made larger pans, but this is a great palette that can fit in your purse for touch ups.
Wide variety of colors
Ability to swirl colors for more colors
Small and Portable
I wish the medium browns were larger and more equivalent in size as the light beige color
Some fallout with the shimmery eyeshadows...
MY NEW FAV OBSESSION!!!
IT'S A NUDE PALETTE IN A PAN!!! Omg I love this so much, I want backups! So remember when NYC had their Mosiac Eyeshadow pans? This is similar but much larger with all neutral/nude shades. The dominant shade is in the center, a light matte beige with a slight pink tinge. Then surrounding that are the following:
1. A gorgeous Kitten-ish shade, a neutral midtone pink shimmer with teeny sparkle!
2. A lovely midtone gold shimmer
3. A coppery brown shimmer
4. A large serving of a matte milk-chocolate brown
5. A neutral matte brown that's a shade darker/cooler than #4.
6. A deep, dark matte chocolate suitable for lining wet or dry
The pigmentation is perfect, one can do so much with this shade assortment! They blend easily. Wearing this today with Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore and Revlon's Strawberry gloss - gorgeous! I found this hanging among the Milani display at Walmart for $7.99 in a hinged clear-topped compact. I am utterly, absolutely in love with it - how fabulous for travel!
