I picked this beauty up in my latest haul from Mecca Maxima and I thought I'd let you know my thoughts around it.
Packaging wise it's super slim and compact (about the size of a credit card), plastic and lightweight and has a small mirror in it making it the perfect eyeshadow palette to take away on holiday. Shade wise I find there are a good mix of colours that could be used for both day and night looks.
The shades are silver, peony, quartz, veiled, midnight, haze, copper and espresso and all eight shades are cool toned and can be used either wet or dry.
I wouldn't say I'm highly impressed with this palette. The shadows are lacking in the pigmentation department and just don't pack a lot of punch on the eyes. I guess I'm just looking for a little bit more colour pay-off than these are delivering. Using the shadows wet does give more pigmentation but to be honest I find it a little finicky to have to wet a brush etc and blending becomes a bit of a drag when you use shadows wet so I'm not a big fan of that.
If you're after muted tones of these colours well then maybe this palette is for you. If not I'd save your money for something with better quality.
$35(AUD) from Mecca
