My Description: This is a highly pigmented, palette that offers almost everything you need for the face except for a power or foundation. It offers unique tones that stay on all day, and even tips for how to mix and match them. It easily fits in a purse, and even has a cute mirror attached to it!
Pigmentation: This palette is extremely pigmented and I was very surprised at how these seemingly small shade samples within the palette pack a punch. You definitely do not need much product at all! I was in particular shock with the highlighter and the two lip shades which are extremely pigmented. 5/5
Packaging: The packaging with this palette is extremely cute! From the vintage feel of the graphics to the awesome built in mirror, this palette has it all. Easy to open, secure and doesn't flap open or close improperly. Sturdy design, yet appealing. Small enough and strong enough to slide in a purse and not really worry about it! 5/5
Shades: You get 9 eyeshadow pigments, a highlighter, a bronzer, two lip shades and two blushes. It definitely offers a shade and look for every skin tone and compliments almost anyone. Versatile enough to mix and match pigments as well for an array of looks! 5/5
Scent: This palette has no noticeable scents of fragrances. Which, isn't a bad thing or a good thing really, but it definitely doesn't smell bad. 5/5
Wearability: This palette is totally wearable! It offers day and night shades suitable for work and for play. The pigments have longevity and last all day! 5/5
Price: Depending on where you purchase this palette it can range from $25-38.00. Not too bad, since you get an entire face palette almost in one. It should last a good while as well, since the products within it are very, very pigmented. A little goes a long way! 5/5
Overall Review: This palette is high quality, sturdy, long lasting, versatile, enhances almost any skin tone and is also travel friendly! This is definitely one of the most unique palettes I've ever purchased and I would do so again for sure! Love it! Every shadow I tried was pigmented and I loved how the palette even had mix and match suggestions near the bottom. The lip shades are highly pigmented and almost shocking! The highlight, blushes and bronzer are easy to blend go on exceptionally as well! 5/5 on this one!
