If you don’t know me yet then you should know that I love matte eyeshadow palettes. Kat Von D Shade and Light is my absolute favorite!! I am going to base my review comparing it to that palette a little bit.
This eyeshadow palette is gorgeous as you can see. The colors are awesome. It has both warm and cool shadows which I love the diversity. These shadows aren’t as pigmented or blendable as the Kat Von D palette. They are still great shadows. These shadows last all day and look great blended out. You can create really nice neutral/natural eye looks plus a good smoky look. The brush isn’t too bad as well. It is dual ended with a blending brush and an eyeliner/brow brush.
I didn’t use this for my eyebrows or my liner because I don’t like powder products for that. I have used it every day for my eyeshadow for almost a week and I really like this palette. I hope we see more matte palettes come out soon from other brands!!!
Pass or buy?
In my opinion buy if you love matte shadows.
