I’ve heard a lot about this product and decided to give it a try. I purchased this from Amazon and almost couldn’t sleep until I got my package. I bought 2 shades:

Cool as a Cucumber 382B (plum/green hues) and Knock on Wood 383B (rusty hues)

I misplaced the receipt with which I bought them but I think one pallet goes for 10 GBP (~ N2,500, $ 18), slightly pricey for the size but you’ll get value for your money.

My observations: though it’s a powder-based eye shadow; it has a very soft and creamy feel; very very pigmented; very easy to work with, build up and blend; moderate shimmer; no fall outs; color pops without applying with a wet brush or on primed eyes.

The colors are vibrant, it’s almost odorless which is very good for a sensitive nose like mine. It is a 3-in-1 product (mini-pallet) with the where to apply each section on the mini-pallet inscribed on the product. Further instructions/pictures on how and where to apply is written at the back of the product (especially when you peel off the first layer of the paper at the back). The product comes with an applicator and a small angled fluffy brush. The applicator can be used for applying color on the brow bone and eyelid while the brush can be used to apply product on the crease and for blending.

The brow bone colours have very very little shimmer to them, drier than the eye lid and crease colours and not as pigmented as the other two colours which makes it suitable when creating a natural look.

Overall it’s an awesome product very suitable for both professional and personal use; and of course I look forward to buying more shades.
