The exclusive collection of high-quality, high-pigment shades are enclosed in a limited-edition ombre case that also pays tribute to the Color of the Year.

This palette is thin but weighty and is made of white plastic that fades into orchid on the top. The palette folds open to reveal a full-sized mirror inside the lid and 24 eye shadow shades grouped into quads, plus a larger-sized shade of Radiant Orchid at the bottom center of the palette. From left-to-right, top-to-bottom, the quads are divided into the following sets: Cream Dream, Rare Earth, Bird of Paradise, Venus Rising, Primal Flower, and Midnight Orchid.
Most of the eye shadows in this palette have a pretty creamy formula and good pigmentation. The blue and purple quads (Bird of Paradise and Venus Rising) are the most impressive because of the shadows’ rich pigmentation and smooth application.
This set also has a good mixture of shades with different finishes, from matte, to shimmery, to frosty, to glittery. You get almost a full rainbow range of colors, except for greens.
My favorite shade of the entire bunch is Glacier from the Bird of Paradise quad. It’s a shimmering pale blue with a duo-chrome finish.
The Radiant Orchid shade is listed as another eye shadow, but it works equally well as a blush.
Ease of Use: 9/10
Most of these shades apply smoothly and don’t need too much layering.
