Packaging: 9.25/10

Illamasqua’s Reflection Palette comes in a pinched square palette made of reflective black plastic. There is also a full-sized mirror inside.

These eye shadows have a mousse/gel consistency that is very soft and silky. The shadows are very light-weight on the skin and blend out nicely.

Precipice is a very pale, shimmering yellow that looks like an off-white. Acute is a shimmering taupe-brown. Graphica is a shimmering bronze-brown. Dart is a coal grey with silver micro-shimmer.

These shades have good pigmentation that can be built up with additional layers. You can use these as bases or as stand-alone eye shadows.

These shadows transfer and blend easily.
