Pros: Color pay off and easy use of the product

Cons: Price and Packaging

Packaging: The case is small and really compact. The case is also really light -weight almost plastic feeling. The inside has a really nice big mirror to see your self for touch ups and what not. The sizes of the eye shadows are big to where it almost takes up the whole pallet. There are also 2 applicators to apply the eye shadows. There are 5 shades to each pallet and 6 pallets total. The pallet shown in picture is #1.

Review: I am first going to talk about the cons of this product, which are pricing and packaging. I feel these things are the most important. When you look at the compact you think it might have some weight to it. This feels like inexpensive plastic. I do not like that. I feel like for the price which I feel is a little much you should get more of a heavier plastic than something that maybe you would expect with a drugstore price. Even the tools that come with it feel a little cheep. I also feel that the price is a little much for something like this. This cost more than the Naked and Naked 2 pallets, which you get 12 full size, colors and this you only get 5 colors for $55 dollars. I feel that you get a little cheated on this the pallet with the price. On the up side the colors of the pallet really show true to color on the eye. It is also really easy to use the eye shadows. They do not leave a chalky look or un evenness to the eye.

Overall: I am not sure if I would recommend this product to someone because of the price alone. I would say shop around to see if you really want this. If you do decide to get it, you wont be to disappointed with the product it self.
