I use this palette literally every single day.

I actually use it as my everyday eyebrow kit. I mean, sure, it does a smokey eye too, but those two grey/black powder shades? PERFECT if you, like me, have black hair but really pale skin. I can't use brown brow powder, and most black brow powders make me look like Frida Kahlo - wayyy too dark. Here, the slightly shimmery dark grey is perfect for day wear, and the not-quite-black is good for a more dramatic evening look. The pink powder, lightly shimmery, is a perfect subtle highlight.

I will also say that that brush is honestly the single best brush I've ever used - especially the angled side. Perfect for applying powder into brows.

The packaging, on the other hands, absolutely sucks if you're using it every day. Cardboard doesn't mix well with makeup bags and everyday bustling. I've broken the mirror and had to tape the box back together multiple times. It doesn't come out with me anymore.

Does anyone know if this is still available anywhere? I've hit pan on the two main shadow shades and I REALLY need a replacement!

This product was one of my first high end purchases back when I first started getting into make up. I think this is a really good smoky eye palette if you are just starting to get into makeup. The shadows are really easy to use and are smooth and pigmented.

Positive aspects:
- Easy to travel with
- lovely eye shadows that really make eyes pop
- the high-brow pink works well for under the eye brows and on the inside eye
- Eyebrow wax is a perfect colour for dark eyebrows

Negative:
- The tweezers are too small, practically useless
- the eye pencil could be softer, can prove difficult to use
- It's expensive

Overall, I'd highly recommend this product. If you see someone selling this product on Ebay, please be careful because I've bought a very convincing fake.

This was pretty much my first ever makeup kit and I really like it. I've had it about three years and I'd say I use each of these colors about twice a week. The light pink shade is one of my favorite highlight shades I've ever used and even though this palette gets quite a bit of use, I haven't hit pan yet so I would say it's worth the money. My only complaint is that the eyeliner is pretty much worthless. Still, it's an overall great product that I'd highly recommend to someone first starting out with makeup like I was when I bought it.

So disappointed with this purchase I don't know where to start. The eye shadows are terrible to blend and have horrendous fall out, I used my own brushes aswell as the brushes in the kit and just couldn't get a clean finish. I don't have tons of eye shadows but I think I must be spoilt with my urban decay! The highlighter is quite pretty but I don't think it goes that well with the other colours. The liner is hard and doesn't do much. I will use the brow gel as I don't have many brow products, you need to use this lightly or it can look to warm. The tweezers are so cute and a wonderful added touch apart from them being so difficult to use! I kind of got talked into this product when I was buying some cha cha tint, expensive mistake. Another Benefit fail as far as I'm concerned.
I think if this was cheaper it would suit someone that doesn't have much makeup and wants something small and portable.

Since my mum bought this for me a couple of years ago, one of these hasnt been missing from my makeup bag! I originally just bought it for the smoky eye shadow but in it you have the eye brow wax and a pink highlighter and two brushes! You also get a set of tweezers but I've found them to be pretty useless and I've never used them! I swear by this as one I my staple eye looks on a night out and I now own the full eyebrow kit from benefit because I loved the wax in this kit! It also shows you how to do the smokey eye if your a novice to it like I was! It's dead easy and it looks really nice!
People might be put off by the price price but they do last a good while and ive never had any of the eyeshadows shatter despite being dropped a lot!

I've had this pallette for about a year now, and I have been using it at least once or twice weekly. I just never got around to reviewing it...
I have gray eyes, the colors in this set work so well for me, whether I want the dark smokey eye look (which I'm afraid, because of my age, doesn't work for me as well as it used too :( or using the light pink as a wash and just lightly line top lid with the gray shadow. The colors all blend beautifully and with UD primer, lasts about 8 hours. I do not use the brow color, its too dark for me, and the eye bright is a cute idea, but dried out fairly quickly due to the packaging. This also comes with tiny tweezers that work well for a quicky touch up of a wayward hair. The brush is useless and the liner pencil is okay at best. But the true stars of this pallette are the 2 shadows and the liner (which I use dry as a shadow also). I still have quite a bit left, but will repurchase since this is the only pink/gray combo that actually looks good on my skin tone.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this as it is my go-to palette. I have brown eyes and fair skin, and these shadows look better on me than any other I own at the present time. They apply and blend easily and last all day with a primer (UDPP). Also, my sensitive eyes thank me as these cause zero irritation. The only thing I hate is that these can't be purchased individually. I love the highlighter color as a highlight for my face too. Needless to say, I run out of that one first. I don't use the brow wax at all and I wish that bright eye wasn't put in every eyeshadow palette. I have several of them I haven't touched because I haven't used all of the one in my brow palette. Overall, great product. I'd repurchase.

I really love the eyeshadow colors in this palette. Also the step by step instructions are quite helpful because I really didn't know what the heck the other products were!! I tried the pink wax and I find it doesn't really show up very well. The brow wax is quite handy if you don't want to bring extra products while traveling. Overall, a great palette with flattering colors! I don't do black smokey eyes well with my olive skin tone. I just look dead. I always try to do dark brown smokey eyes because it works better with olive skin tones. This one's a good one. Perfect for travel!!

I like how this pretty much comes with everything. The tweezers are a bit small and the brush is practically useless for applying eyeshadow... but it has everything in a really convinient compact. I like the brow color quite alot but I don't find it to really have a smoky eye effect. Maybe the color are too subtle for my taste but if you wan't a subtle gray smoky eye than this is the way to go. I will keep using it for a day look, tough.
