I got this palette as a gift from my friends on my birthday and it is wonderful. All the colors are very pigmented and very unique with the exception of the bottom highlight color as others have mentioned. It is similar to the middle highlight color in tone, but it has the chunkiest glitter that falls out like crazy. Regular glitter is much easier to work with. I wish they would replace that color, but the other colors are more than good enough to make up for it. The matte white highlight in particular is amazing. It is very buttery and pigmented-perhaps a tad on the powdery side-but I would not change anything about the formula. The packaging is a bit bulky, but I can't imagine anyone having too much trouble fitting the small box into their suitcase. I travel with it quite frequently and find the box quite sturdy, but a bit unnecessarily bulky.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!! I just got it for Christmas but have wanted it forever! The waiting has paid off! I totally recommend it! I know that all the shades are perfect for so many looks! Although I do not like the tutorial cards ( I just don't like the finished look) I LOVE how it looks after I experiment a little! My only problem is it is a bit pricey for me ($36) but I think it is the perfect item to splurge on! If you want a new, modern take on a natural eye this is the PERFECT pallet for you!
this is my first too faced palette or shadow for that matter, this palette is good for everyday, however one of the shadows is a total flop as it is just chunky glitter, totally useless, but it is a decent palette with a really nice array of neutral shades, mattes and shimmers
Wow, I love this shadow pallette!!!! Such beautiful colors, shimmer, and quality!!! Ladies, dont be like me and never venture into quality makeup simply because of the higher prices. I am bummed on all the money I spent on crappy drugstore shadows. Anyways, these shadows are beautiful and many are a close dupe for the infamous UD Naked pallette. So you can get this for 36 bucks as opposed to 50 for the UD. I was immediately bowled over by the color intesity and payoff. They blend like a dream too. They is very little fall out on the brush or your face when applying these with the proper brushes. So, yes, $36 bucks is a lot of money but for 9 shadows that are pro quality and will last quite a while, its not that much and you will get a lot of bang for your buck. Love these :)
This palette contains 9 shades:
Heaven-similar to a MAC Blanc Type,a soft off white matte shade.
Silk Teddy-Similar to MAC Jest, a frosty soft baby pink shade.
Nude Beach-a shimmery champange, similar to MAC Retrospeck, but with more pigment.
Velvet Revolver- a matte shade midtone cool brown, similar to MAC Kid.
Push up-a shimmery bronze shade with a slight peach undertone.
Honey Pot-a shimmery midtone gold. A very nice natural gold shade without too much yellow to it.
Sexpresso-similar to MAC Espresso, a rich dark brown shade, warmer in tone.
Coco Puff-A chocolatey shimmer, reminds me of MAC Mulch.
Erotica- a midtone purpley grey...kinda a darker verison of MAC Shale.
This palette overall is a really nice mixture of neutral shades. 3 light, 3 mid and 3 darker. You have 3 matte, 3 which I would consider frost and 3 lustrey shades. The lustres in this palette are, to me, what everyone wishes MAC's lustre formula would be. The shimmer is there, without a lack of pigment. The wear of these shadows with a base is similar to any other high end shadow. The lustrey shades do tend to have fallout, but I think that is expect of a high shimmer product. Applying with a flat brush can help combat some of that problem. All of the shadows do have a overall softness and blend very well.
Some of these shades are similar to shades in the Urban Decay Naked palette and to the MAC shades I mentioned above, so if you're trying to avoid dupes that is something to keep in mind. Great value for the price. Also comes with cute lil "how to" cards which can be helpful for those of us stuck in a rut or who get overwhelmed by large shadow palettes. At $36 its also a very reasonable price. Def worth giving a try if you think it might be up your alley!
I use this palette ALL the time. I absolutely love it! Think I might even buy it again once I run out of it all. It is a little pricey but I think it's worth it.
I always get compliments on how I do my eyes when I use this stuff.
The colors are pretty neutral so you can wear them every day if you want.
I will try and post a picture of how I do my eyes with this palette so you can get a better look at what I'm talking about.
The palette comes with 9 shades. The top first 3 are matte and the rest are shimmery. Also comes with 3 separate illustration cards on how to create the perfect natural eye look with the shades.
This is my all-time favorite eye shadow pallette. The quality is excellent. You can easily create a nice, neutral look. You can also create a smokey look using the darker shadows in the pallette. It's easy to mix and match the 9 colors (it comes with 3 highlight colors, 3 crease colors and 3 dark brown colors). Only 3 are matte and the rest are shimmery. The pigmentation and the wear is excellent.
The only con is the price. I think $36 is too high, even though the quality is great and it will last you a long time.
With this palette you can pull off TONS of looks!!! you can adjust it from simple to bombshell! Its a great neutral palette with great shimmery eyeshadows ( no fading) and some matte ones! The price is not the best but i really like the product and its perfect for travelling, i only take this palette when i travel and it works for everything! DEFINETELY recommended ( especially when you want 1 multi purpose product)
I really love these eyeshadows and the range of colors and finishes of them as well. However, the packaging is so unfortunate. The shadows come in a cardboard box that is much bigger than it needs to be. It is a little bit pricey, but the quality of the shadows are excellent and the colors are very versatile.
I really like the first 2 rows of colors but the last row I rarely use. The packaging is really appealing and I think that's more of the reason I bought it. Some of the colors are too sparkly for my liking, but overall it's a nice palette.
