I’ve had my eyes on this palette for quite some time but wasn’t too sure I really wanted to spend $65 on it. I finally purchased it during the last Sephora VIB sale because who doesn’t love a good discount!? The palette has some beautiful shades ranging from reds, oranges
1st row L to R: Desert Sand, Musk, Eden, Amber, Blood Moon & OUD.
2nd row L to R: Celestial, Nefertiti, Twilight, Amethyst, Royal & Retrograde.
3rd row L to R: Cashmere, Angelic, Cosmo, Turkish Delight, Saffron & Blazing.
After purchasing this palette I have mixed feelings about it. It’s a beautiful palette when it comes to the range of shades it contains. However, I did find that when swatching some of the shadows, they were very dry and did not transfer well. This was a little bit of a bummer because I’ve seen so many beautiful looks from this palette. Even though some of the shades didn’t swatch that great, I did l fall in love how buttery and pigmented the others were. I’m hoping that once I create a look with the shadows the pay off will be much better than the swatches.
My favorite shades from the palette are Eden, Blood Moon, Twilight, Angelic & Turkish Delight. I think Eden would be a great all over the lid shade for Spring or even used as a crease shade with Angelic all over the lid. Seeing there are 18 shades in the palette, I know that so many different looks can be created with it.
I do love the packaging of the palette as it is very sturdy and has a mirror in it. Overall, I don’t feel like this is a must-have palette because there are probably much more affordable dupes. I know that goes against what most others say about the palette being amazing but my first impression is that it’s not the best palette I’ve owned. I’ll be creating a look with this to share soon and my opinion might change. I’ll keep y
