My Thoughts 

Overall I think this is a pretty good palette. I have to admit that I like the eyeshadows more than I like the lipsticks. Lets start with the lipstick palette. The colors are very pigmented and creamy, but not very long lasting and some of the lipsticks it feels like I have to use a lot of it to achieve to the color I want even though I mentioned the colors are very pigmented. Even though this palette is travel friendly, I wouldn't suggest putting this in your purse during the warmer months since the lipsticks could melt. 

I absolutely love the eyeshadows in this palette! They're easy to blend and the fallout is minor. I was a little concerned about the pigmentation at first because when I swatched the shadows on my arm it some of shadows lacked pigmentation, but when I used my NYX White Eyeshadow Base the colors really came to life! In speaking of eyeshadow base if you view Shaaanxo video about her palette, she states that depending on the eyeshadow base you use some of the colors look different than they appear in the palette. I thought that was really neat because it's like you're getting more than 9 shadows lol. If you noticed in my makeup look the last color I used on top of my lid (4) looks dark in the palette, but it looks different in my makeup look. I think that this a good palette to have and  I can't wait to create more eye makeup looks with it! Make sure you check out Ashley's thoughts about this palettr on her blog

Thanks for stopping by my blog!


  1. I love the makeup look you did! Thanks so much again for sending me this awesome palette, and doing this collab with me Pilar!! I do agree it takes s bit to achieve buildup on the lipsticks, but I also kind of like how you can control the pigmentation of them that way! The one you're wearing in the look is my favorite!

    1. Thanks and you're welcome! Collabs are so much fun! I'm glad that you liked your palette! I agree it's good that you can control the pigmentation of the lipsticks! I really like the nude lipstick I'm wearing too!

  2. Great presentation of the makeup I usually do not purchase lipstick in palette is hard to take along my business travel.
