Holiday Packette Sample Bag

Packaging: 9/10

This palette is made with heavy, black, cardboard-like material that feels sturdy while looking sleek. The palette stays closed via a magnet and contains a mirror inside the lid. The eye shadows inside are divided into two rows, with the top row containing the 7 shimmery shades and the bottom row containing the 7 matte shades.

Quality: 9.25/10

This palette has a full array of neutral shades: from light to dark, cool-toned to warm-toned, matte to shimmery. Everything you’d need for a neutral daytime eye look to a smoky nighttime eye look is in this palette. The brush included is high-quality too.

The matte shades have a semi-soft formula that isn’t too dusty or powdery, and the shades have good pigmentation. The shimmery shades are just slightly less buttery, but the pigmentation for them is great.

Overall, this is a high-quality palette and a great choice if you’re looking for neutral shades.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

These shadows have a formula that’s easy to work with in terms of how they transfer and blend.

Price: 8.75/10

For $49.00 you get 14 eye shadows for a total of 0.49 ounces of product. Plus, you get a brush and mini mascara. This is slightly more compared to palettes from companies like Stila and Too Faced.
