Cons :

  • All the colors are pretty “safe colors” nothing too crazy

Pigmentation: High pigmentation. The black eyeshadow is amazing… deep dark black

Overall: I would recommend this to anyone looking for an all in one smokey palette for them purse or even their every day go to palette. It won’t let you down and has a variety of pigmented colors. You can use the black and white shadows to deeping or lighten the existing shadows in between.
