I wasn't interested in makeup when R&R was still producing their cosmetics line :( so I thought I'd missed out on the R&R experience. I was lucky enough to score this trio from a blog sale.
The texture and pigmentation of these shadows are incredible, and they are a joy to use. They are rich, vibrant colours, and blend smoothly. The trio works well together for a smokey eye, and play well with my eyeshadows from other brands (both high- and low-end) for less intense looks.
The shadows are the same diameter as MUFE singles. They are housed in a robust, black powder-coated metal palette with a mirror. This is definitely the sort of packaging that you would leave at home. I managed to depot the three shadows using the alcohol method (was troublesome and I scratched up the edges of the wells a bit) so I can put them in a freestyle palette to go if need be.

Super heavy and sturdy packaging. Wish it didn't have such a big outer packaging. Great value as it has three full sized shadows (pretty sure - total product weight is .38oz and one shadow is .11oz; but I don't have a full size for comparison) for $65 and one shadow retails for $28. Price is steep but on target for the brand/prestige/quality but it's always on sale. Good value for what you are getting. Affair is a shimmery champagne highlight color, Twisted is a lightly shimmery dark blue purple, and Fatalistic is a dark matte black. Fatalistic is easily my favorite matte black ever - goes on opaque and is truly black. The combination of Twisted on the lid, Fatalistic in the crease and outer V, and Affair as a highlight is now a go-to for me. All apply smooth and last through airport and other holiday travel shenanigans.
