    Great but not the shades I was expecting from the web photo

    When you open the palette, you will see the 14 shadows neatly laid out in logical order. There is also a double-ended brush and a decent size mirror in the lid.

    I purchased this palette beacuse of the pretty purples and pinks at least that is what I thought from the photo on Sephora's website. You should be able to see from my photos that these are not the purple and pink I thought they would be from the image on the Sephora website. They are more towards browns and taupes.

    Although I found the shadows applied slightly better over primer, there was very little difference in the colour, so that's good. There was a little more fallout without primer and I would guess that they would last longer on the eyes with primer. I personally always use primer due to my oily lids. If I don't my eyeshadows crease and vanish after an hour or two.

    The top row has the paler shades, even though they don't necessarily look paler in the palette, they are. All shades apply really nicely. They are richly pigmented and blend well. There are enough shades to be able to create a lot of different looks from this one palette. So overall, I think the palette is a nice one that will work well for many people.

    My biggest issue is the shades. Although I have nothing against the shades themselves, I purchased it thinking it was going to much more towards the purple and berry shades, which I do not feel it is. When I look at my palette collection, I have a lot of similar shades and I just cannot justify this additional palette so, I am going to be returning this palette to Sephora.

    I must stress, that this has nothing to do with the quality of the palette, it is in fact really good. It is simply that I feel I was misled with the shades that were represented on the website. Had I have seen this in person in the store, I would probably have bypassed it. But, oh well, you learn from your mistakes.
