Review:
I purchased this impulsively while I was randomly swatching everything in Sephora. I didn't even notice that it came with the eyeshadow primer and eyeliner until I got home. I decided to only mainly focus on the eyeshadows in this review.

The packaging of the palette is very sturdy and handy for the amount of the shadows. There are a total of 15 shadows altogether. It also came with instruction cards that were conveniently tucked behind the wide mirror for your inspiration needs.

I fell in love with the palette because of their new formulation for these shadows (very similar to Japanese Asian brands like Jill Stuart, Kate and Maquillage) and because it's shimmery/soft glittery. I know many people kept ranting about how it doesn't have any matte, but I actually like it BECAUSE of that. I just don't adore matte shadows all that much so I really appreciate this palette. (Hence, my not so in love review of the Naked Basic Palette)

The texture of the shadow is soft and velvety. From the swatch photos, you can see that there are some fall outs. I noticed even more fall outs when I use a brush but once I switch to my sponge applicators (how I normally apply my Asian eyeshadows), it helps with the fall outs and also the pigmentation too! The pigmentation is very sheer if you use a brush, so I highly recommend using this palette with sponge applicators. All shadows are build-able and extremely versatile.

The palette comes with an eyeshadow primer and an eye pencil which is absolutely perfect for anyone's eye make up application! To me, this eyeshadow palette is absolutely perfect. I still think that the price is a little steep but when you compare it to YSL eyeshadow quads for 4 colours (around $75 CAD). This is a steal! However, when you compare this to a Japanese middle to high end quad, I think the price is perfectly just.

If you're looking to add some glittery and duo-finish eyeshadows, I highly recommend it!
ps, the full size eyeliner is by the way, very very good quality, my goodness!!!!
