Good Product to Have
Score: 50%

-colors are pigmented
-easy to apply
-looks great with other eye shadows (matte palette,etc)
-gorgeous shimmery colors
-colors go well with each shades included

- (same with the rants from my double stack matte palette review)
- easy to blend but i don't like how it looks after sometime (opacity/pigmentation fades)

A good palette to play around with but for me its a NO. I first thought i love this palette as much as the matte but as soon as I saw that the colors/pigmentation fades when I blend the shadows, i was wrong. It works well with other brands so its worth keeping. So should you buy it? I suggest you first get the matte palette. This is similar to the 120 palette in terms of the effect after blending. I like the shimmer palette better than the 120 palette in terms of the texture/colors but I find the 120 palette a more worth it product as it includes a lot of colors.

Get it from: -can do meetups for local buyers -a little expensive but already an established company so its the safest choice for those first timers of online shopping -also has a lot of products you can check out

please let me know if you have any other sellers in mind:)

Upcoming: 42 Double Stack Shimmer Palette

I have the matte one and love it and plan on getting the shimmer. I wish the blushes in both were different.
