The Lowdown
I love how pretty this palette is and some of the lighter shade are simply gorgeous. The palette has a combination of 3 matte and 4 shimmery shades.

With a mixture of 4 light and 4 dark shades you can go for a light day look or a more gothic evening look. The white (1) and light pink matte shades (3) are very hard to see and quite faint, whilst the light gold (2) and bronze (4) have a lovely shimmer. The darker shades pack a fair amount of pigment but they are very stark against the skin. The palette crumbles really easily and I did get a fair amount of fall out when I was applying it.

The look I chose was different to my normal shades and I opted for a darker smokey look. Here’s how I created the look:
1. First I swept the light purple along the inner corner of my eye.
2. I added a bit of contrast to the look with the darker purple which I applied to the outer third of my eye.

Whilst the lighter purple was fine to work with I did find the darker purple was a little more tricky leaving bare patches on my lid which wasn’t at all attractive. It took a fair amount of perseverance to get my lid fully covered with the darker shade. On the plus side the shades were fairly blendable.

I do like some of the lighter shimmery shades but I’m not so keen on the darker colours. The light matte shades were very hard to see whilst the darker shades had a fair amount of pigment.

I give it 2/5
