Well, I was super excited about this palette, but I see others are not loving it as much :-( I love any "nude" palette that I can wear every day, and that will go with just about anything. I also love browns that can be light and subtle or deep and smokey, and the shades in this palette work for all of the above. I don't have a problem getting color payoff, but it's true, these aren't as pigmented as other WnW palettes I have tried, but then these also don't flake on me like they did either. I love all the shades in this palette, it's pretty much the perfect collection of shades for a gal like me who likes "natural" neutral shadows. I used to wear Covergirl's Shimmering Sands trio daily, but this has replaced that! I'm happy with it!
This was a very disappointing purchase. The singles, 3 pan, and 8 pan palettes are creamy and blendable. The shadows in this palette are dry and chalky. The only good shadow is the definer color, which is a very rich, cool toned dark brown. The base shade is soft and okay. The three other shades are all pretty bad. The crease shade gives off hardly any pigment, with a lot of chunky glitter. The browbone shade is powdery and chalky. Overall, very disappointing.
save your money. super chalky. hard to blend. nothing like the old coloricon shadows. I got it for $3 and i still returned it. so that should tell you something. .
I agree with the others. This is disappointing to say the least. It lacks pigmentation and longevity on my lids. The colors are gorgeous though in the palette. You get a base shade and highlighter shade, along with a definer shade. The lid shade is close to the brown taupe shade in the Comfort Zone palette. A primer helps a bit, but the colors still don't have much depth to them. I will keep playing with it and may have to try them wet. Will not repurchase.
I agree with the other reviews. These are not as good as WNW's singles or trios. The quality and pigment are somewhat lacking in comparison. But it's not a terrible palette either. Just kind of average.
I love WnW regular line-up of eyeshadow singles, 3pc and 8pc pans - so when I saw this neutral palette I was hoping the quality and buttery texture would be the same.
Although these shadows are not as poor quality as the Fergie Collection eyeshadows (horrible, dry, chalky, most shades were almost invisible on my light NC20 skin)- they are in my opinion, not as good quality as their regular singles/pan shadows. It seems the formula is a bit different and these are a step down - less pigmented and more dry, chalky and do not blend as easily nor last as long. They flat out refused to adhere to my lids - so you definitely need primer which helps. They are not pigmented enough for very dramatic looks (plus the "definer" dark brown shade applies a bit too sheer and patchy to use as a liner colour) and tend to fade quickly, usually within 3-4 hours. They are fine if I'm just stepping out for a bit and want a simple look. I will probably try to use it up this way.
However, despite all that they are not completely terrible by any means and with a bit of primer they do look much better and the colours are flattering for most skin tones, plus the price is great and WnW is easily available in most stores/pharmacies.
This is a new 2014 shadow palette of neutrals, which is why I bought it. It has 5 shades of neutrals-- 1 taupe, 2 browns (all quite different shades), and two lighter highlight colors--a yellowish cream and a silver. 3 of the shades have shimmer--only the cream highlighter shade and dark brown don't. I like this palette, but wish it had more mattes. Also the pigmentation is a bit worse than in the older palettes. If you have Comfort Zone, you might not need this one, but this is a smaller, more compact palette, so it's easier to tote around than that one. It comes with an applicator and a brush, like the 6 pans did. You get fewer colors too--but more of the base shades, which I prefer. The base colors are different than in Comfort Zone too--the yellow is paler and the silver is unique to this palette.
