Spring in a palette--and what a pretty palette this is! I've really enjoyed all the new matte shadows introduced this year (sometimes a girl just doesn't WANT to sparkle, right?), though most that I've found are neutral. These are wonderful, bright, joyous shades that perk up any color wardrobe and can add fun to any look. I have to appear somewhat stuffy and somber at work, so I will only use bright colors sparingly, for holidays or "occasions." And, if I were to keep this, it's darn lucky that I don't wear brights every day, because these perky shades come in teeny, tiny, little, almost-microscopic pans (seriously--each pan is only a little bigger than the eraser-end of a pencil! I'd guesstimate they're approximately 8 mm in diameter). For the love of all that's colorful, Bobbi, this isn't $70 worth of eye shadow! That being said (and that being true!), these are totally cute and totally fun. Anyone who doesn't have anything better to spend $70 on should get this. Bright, pretty mattes are hard to find...but I'm sending this back and buying a new hot water heater this month instead.
