While there's no sparkle, there is a bit of shimmer which I imagine is there for blendability. The effect is a bit chalky and definitely veers on the blue/cool side rather than being neutral or warm. Things definitely veer towards the metallic if you use the lightest shade. I'm underwhelmed but not enough to return it.
Enjoyed this trio as I was looking for a grey es palette appropriate for work
Dark Grey - very pigmented, nice cool grey colour
Middle light grey - I don't use this too often as it doesn't show up on my asian skin
Taupe - really liked this colour as well. It's a taupe, grey colour that's great for all overlid.
All 3 colours are matte and quite blendable. Great option for a drugstore palette.
This eye shadow trio is really a good product. It provides three different shades of grey, and gives me a natural, work appropriate smokey eye. It is shimmer-free and pigmented. At this price, you can't beat it !
