For a very long time, I was looking at this palette and sighing because I couldn’t make up my mind on whether I need it or not. And finally, I dared to buy it!
The shades here are adorable and seem to be perfect for everyday makeup at first sight. Besides, the color selection is absolutely mine and it feels like everything is fine about it but something clearly went wrong. Beautiful swatches, this is where all the beauty dies.
The first problem that I faced here was actually the dry formula. The products are so dry that I could apply them only over an adhesive primer. But even with that primer, the products never want to stay on for more than a couple of hours. After that, they turn into a real mess on my eyes.
The second drawback is from the shimmering shades. I have to live through all the possible mumbo jumbo from damp brushes to insane packing with my finger to get more or less of the color payoff from them. Otherwise, they are just invisible.
But even all that doesn’t prevent them from falling out and by the end of the day all the shimmering bits fade away or fall out.
The dark shimmering and matte shades don’t want to sit over my half-ready makeup and my routine daytime makeup takes up to 20 minutes of mumbo jumbo that I don’t need at all.
One more crucial thing about this palette is the color selection. I mean, there are 12 shades but somehow, my makeup looks almost the same all the time.
In a word, I think you already guessed that I’m absolutely pissed off with this palette. The only positive thing about it might be its 5th anniversary in 2018.
But in fact no, I never recommend it.
