I love this palette because it is very rare to find a "warm neutrals palette" most palettes on the market right now that are matte are very cool toned. I also enjoy this palette because the colors are complimentary on all skintones, even those that are very dark. I am NC50 in MAC ProLongwear, Illamasqua Skinbase 15, Revlon Color Stay Whipped Caramel, and Maybelline Super Stay Caramel for reference...and all of these shades can we well used on my skin. I liken this to other neutral palettes on the market (i.e. Naked Basics, theBalm matte palettes, etc.) and other neutral palettes (Lorac, Naked 1 and 2, etc.)...I would wear the colors in this palette more than any of the Naked palettes..bc the depth of colors of the Naked palettes do not create a smokey eye on my skin. This palette could not replace the Lorac palette for me, but compliments it amazingly. The wear is very long...i have worn it for a full day with no issue. It does go on a bit better with a touch of concealer or primer on the lids...but that is because it is more powdery than other shadows...this is because it is a matte...mattes that are high in pigment tend to be powdery (for those of you that own SugarPill shadows know what i am talking about)...they tend to have more fallout because the pigments that make the shadow are not flat platelets (metallic eyeshadows have flat pigments that can stick together)...so care needs to be taken when using these colors...the best trick that i have found is applying prior to foundation application...and a baby wipe for clean up...also using a light hand and building the color on your lid, instead of adding a bunch to your brush and blending out...
I dont think i will ever have a NEED to purchase this again...i am currently on a makeup strike and trying to use products that i already own...but if i EVER get through all of my shadows and have a need to replace these colors...i would purchase this than any single shadow of these colors or some comparable palette...
I've had this pallet for about a month and I love it! The colors work really well with my skin tone.Like a couple other people have mentioned, it's pretty powdery that's really its only downfall in my opinion.
I use Philosophy's 'In the Present' primer all over and it stays on all day. Which is impressive considering I work at a stable and I end up sweaty since I'm out in the heat/humidity all day.
The packaging is great and really sturdy. I knocked off the sink onto a marble floor and all the eyeshadow were fine!
I got this as my intro to matte eyeshadows and so far it has performed better than expected. I'm a die hard Urban Decay fan but since they tend to do more shimmers, glitter, etc. I decided to get this to try something different. When applying the eyeshadows (over UDPP), I feel i have to work just a tiny bit harder to get the color to look how I want compared to UD but that may just be the difference in texture between matte eyeshadows and the satin, shimmer, and so on that I'm used to. The palette is warmer than what I would normally go for but the lady at Sephora tried it on me and it looked decent. Overall I'm happy with my purchase and was happy to get so many eyeshadows at such a cheap price. :)
Ladybird palette is beautiful! Gorgeous matte shades, pigmented and blend beautifully on. I would definitely recommend this palette to friends!!!!
I have the palette and am a bit disappointed with it. I'm used to her Ludwig palette where all the colors are silky, soft and super bendable...these new matte shadows are not. They are dry and not very blendable....I would not rebuy nor recommend.
Ladybird is KvD matte pallet. It's my first KvD pallet. Compared to my other matte pallets UD, The Balm, Stila, and Inglot, the quality is very comparable. The e/s are very pigmented and blend quite well for mattes. They are a little powdery, I don't like a dust mess around the pans. That's just a weird peeve of mine. Für Elise and Siousie Sioux are my favs. The packaging is kinda bulky but terrible. You get Immortal liner as well, it's a dark chocolate color. This will be a fav pallet, I may have to buy a back up
