My Thoughts 

  • The packaging is textured, sleek and magnetic — which I love!
  • For the most part, the shadows are pigmented and creamy. However, I was disappointed in Pink Champagne, I had heard so many great things about the shadow and I had high expectations. The shadow isn’t that pigmented and the finish isn’t as bold as I was expecting. 
  • One downside to this palette is the lack of matte, transition shades. The only true mattes in the palette are Buttery and Hot Chocolate. Buttery is too light to be a transition shade and Hot Chocolate is too dark. Sherbert comes in a velvet finish, which can be used as a transition but it’s not a true matte finish. Making this palette not so travel friendly. If I were to travel with this palette, I would have to carry along a different palette with more neutral, matte, transition shades.
  • Although, it may sound like I don’t like this palette, I actually do like it. It’s not my favorite, but it’s not horrible either. This is a fun palette to own, but it’s not a must-have. — In my opinion.
