Another all matte eyeshadow palette to try! Oh goody! I was so excited to be trying another matte palette, after having been on this matte kick lately with the one from Kat Von D and the Tartlette. Unfortunately, I think I have been spoiled by the aforementioned palettes, because this one fell WAY short of my expectations. 🙁 I found many of the eyeshadows in this palette (Heaven especially) to be quite powdery on application. They were great to work with in terms of blending and pigmentation, but I found after wearing a couple of these looks all day the colors ran together and faded. Disappointing! If you’ve been wanting this palette, I’d say save your money and go for the Kat Von D or Tartlette versions instead. However, if you already have this palette, I’ve provided some great combos you can try with it below. I’ll admit it does look great when mixed with colors! Just wish the colors lasted longer 🙁
