I don’t know how I have gone without this palette for so long. For 8 quality shadows that look good when worn alone or mixed and matched, I think this palette is a steal at $4.99 in drugstores (I have only seen them in Walgreens and Walmart). Granted, there are some things I would change if I could (more on that later) but, overall, I would highly recommend this palette as a go-to for everyday looks as well as dramatic smoky looks. To me, this palette almost has it all.

On to the review! The colors in this palette have excellent pigmentation and color payoff. Their texture is lovely and smooth, not chalky or chunky. And, they are very easy to work with. The colors are great for both warm and cool skin tones. The left side runs a bit warmer with yellow toned creams and browns while the right cools things off with grey-toned taupe and a blue-based brown.
Despite being madly in love, there are a few little critiques I have. For me, the browbone colors leave something to be desired. They didn’t have as much shimmer as I like in my highlighters. Others might find this as a plus, but in order to get my inner corner up to snuff I need the teensiet bit more shimmer. Another feature that might make this palette less appealing is the lack of matte colors. You have to really love glitter/shimmer from lash line to browbone if you are going to rely solely on this palette for a look.
After all of that being said, This palette is definitely worth the price! To show how well paired and blendable these colors are, I did two looks (one for each side) using each color as they say to use it. If it wasn’t love at first swatch, these looks put me over the edge. I am always trying to push myself to come up with fun, colorful looks, but if staying in my Comfort Zone is wrong, I don’t want to be right.'
