I love that there in NO talc in this product but wish you could buy singles in these shadows.
I use Imagine pinkish-cream as a upper lid and under eyebrow shade and blend intrigue (the brown shade) with dream or passion for under eye and eye crease.
Allure the black shade can be added to make it more intense for evening.
I apply them over a primer, the colors are silky, cover in 1 stroke for fast daily eye make-up routine.

This is my favorite matte eyeshadow palette. I especially love the pinky beige color for my lids.

Pros:
* shadows are buttery soft and smooth
* has only 6 colors so it’s not overwhelming trying to choose which to use.
* if you are like me and only use dark colors in crease/ outer v or to line eyes you will be happy that there are only 2 dark colors: brown and charcoal
* you can turn the matte shades to a pearl finish with the transfoforming pearl shade ( I personally prefer them matte)
* there is one medium shade (a beige/ taupe shade)
*the packaging is small and stays closed and is perfect for travel

Cons:
* None really. If I could make one change to the palette I would love for there to be a matte mauve shade. But I’m a sucker for matte mauves, and that’s just a personal preference.

I love this palette. This is my go-to palette for work or travel. I don’t think this would show up on medium skin tones, but if you are fair (NW15), this is amazing. I mix Wonder (yellowish off-white) and Dream (pale pink) on my lid with Wonder on the brow bone. I use Passion (pale Greige) as a transition with Intrigue (chocolate) to deepen the crease and in the outer V. I use Intrigue over my eyeliner for day and Allure(charcoal) to smoke things out at night. They blend well. There is minimal fallout. And they are talc free which is great for minimizing eye irritation. Love this so much I have two back ups.

This is the best palette I have ever purchased and I have purchased a lot of palettes!! The pigmentation is INCREDIBLE. I mostly use the colours Imagine, Wonder and Dream. Dream is an excellent all over lid colour and Wonder is fantastic directly above the eye and in the inner corner. The Transforming Hello Light can be used as a highlighter for pale skin and over the lid colors for extra shimmer. Occasionally I use the shade Intrigue as my main shadow colour and Allure as a liner and definition shade. I apply the all lid colour with a brush and the colour directly above the eye with my fingers. There is little to no fall out. This is the first item I ever purchased from the brand and I am so impressed that I will be trying some other. I don't give 5 stars easily, but this is worth it.

It pains me to write this because in general I love most It Cosmetics products. I have all 3 their larger eyeshadow palettes and love all three so I expected this mini/travel one to be the same great quality... Sadly I am disappointed in this little bugger. :(

First off, four of the six shadows look the same on me (if I can get them to even show up..?!?!?). Then the mid-tone brown shade "Intrigue" has very little pigmentation for me and actually looks like a dark beige on me. "Allure," which is the darkest shade in the palette, looks like a light charcoal grey on my eyelids, and that is even building it up. These also do not apply evenly. But I get no fallout or dusting, which is nice.

Actually, the four lighter shades can't really even be seen on me at all. I suppose they would make a good brow highlight, but who needs 4 very similar shades in a palette that only has 6 shades to start with..? The transforming shade for me does not show up at all, even trying to build it up..where does it go..? :/

I would suggest swatching these on your eyes if possible. When I swatch these on the back of my hand, they look decent and quite pretty. But once on my eyelids, they do not show up, or hardly at all, no matter how much I try to build them up. I realize the palette says 'Naturally' but I do expect to see something, as I do with the larger It Cosmetics palettes. But for whatever reason, the formula or pigmentation did not translate in this palette, at least not for me. I first tested these with no primer and nothing else on my lids because I feel a mark of a good eyeshadow is it can perform well on it's own. I also tried this with a couple various primers and then an attempt over top of foundation applied to my lids and still there was really no pigmentation. Very disappointing.

I just feel these are very overpriced and perform rather poorly. I get no creasing from these but again, they are rather patchy to apply. Not like the shadows in the larger palettes, at least not in my experience.

This palette was $28.00 USD and really I only 'get' 3 shades out of this (including the transition shade, which really does not do anything, anyway).

Very disappointed. Was hoping to have a nice little travel palette, but this is likely going to go back. It does have a nice little mirror and is obviously a convenient travel size and the packaging in the soft pretty pink shade and the rose gold accents is adorable. But to me how a product performs is truly what counts, and this one misses the mark, at least for me.

If you are in need of a lot of really pale shadows or some brow/highlight shades this might be worth checking out....Otherwise I would say this one is a pass.
