Hello, world! Smile

I usually recommend this palette for girls who come to my makeup tutorials. But for quite a while I was ignoring it myself because I’ve already gotten a pile of different eyeshadow palettes and this one even seemed to be boring for me.

However, it includes several shades which are unique and I don’t have them. Those shades were the reason for purchasing.

Shades: this palette has it all!

Satin and matte colors. The satin colors are cool as well as warm-toned here.

The mattes are also cool and warm.

Dark and light!

It’s a rare thing to find a palette which offers such a variety.

You buy only one palette but get such a full pack! That’s great!

Here are the shades which prompted me to purchase.

My faves are gray ones (the first and the last one). It’s noteworthy that they never blend into mud or blue finish that looks so messy usually. Such shades like these are rare.

Here are the shades in the pans in the palette.

All the round refills on top are matte in finish.

The lower row is made of satin and shimmering eyeshadows. The color line-up is from warm and fair to dark and cool ones.

Daytime lights:


The products are soft and really packed with pigments. There are only 2 shades which are less pigmented - Moon and Dust.

They all blend out well and never look messy. All the matte shades are matchy with satins. Each satin shade has a well-going matte color, which can be blended together.

It’s super.

The palette is logical.

The darker satin color may fall out when I apply them. But I don’t criticize them, just state a fact. So, I apply my concealer and foundation when my eye makeup is done.


The satin shades are pretty muted here. So, the palette is a good option for client makeup.

The dark and cool shades are awesome in life. They apply with a thick and good layer. The matte ones are silky texture-wise, they blend out well and don’t fall out.

The most beautiful color is Astral (on my little finger). Cool and brown. The Dior Backstage palette has a similar shade like this one.

Just look at this pigmentation:

There's quite a selection of fair shades. Perfection, especially for daytime makeup.

Makeup: This is what the shades look like over my nude eyelids. No primer, base or concealer was used.

That’s obvious if you apply them over a cream base, they’ll open up even more beautifully.

Shade Shooting:

Shade Stellar:

And this is the shade Stellar and my full-on makeup:


The palette was packed with a cover at first.

Inside they put makeup guides, which are really useful.

As for the palette, it’s cardboard and very light. Also, they placed a rather big mirror there.

Price: $45

But the brand can also be found on sale.

I grabbed it with a special offer.
