This palette is made of thick cardboard. The lid closes via a magnet and does not have a mirror inside. This isn’t the most attractive packaging, but it is functional and light.
Buff is a light, matte cream. Kitten is a shimmery champagne. Bliss is a matte, light beige with a hint of pink. Sunset is a shimmery, bronze chocolate. Sandstone is a matte, chocolate brown. Champagne is a shimmery, beige-champagne. Gilded Gold is a deep brown with gold shimmers. Luster is a deep, greyish brown with shimmer. Night Sky is a shimmery steel blue. Ebony is a matte, deep black.
This palette has fantastic quality shadows. Dare I say it challenges the Urban Decay Naked palettes for color selection and formula?
The shadows have just enough softness so that they glide onto the skin evenly without being overly powdery. All of the colors have strong pigmentation and I’m especially impressed with how good the matte colors are, as well as how many matte colors there are!
The Smudge Stick is also very good quality. The pencil is soft and pigmented.
Ease of Use: 9.8/10
All of the colors glide on smoothly and you don’t need to layer the colors.
For $39.00 you get 10 colors and an eye liner, for a total of 14 grams (0.49 ounces) of shadow.
