Flash Left to Right - Revolt, Gonzo, Slowburn, Savage, Fringe, Chaos, Jilted, Urban, Freak & Thrash
Revolt (bright, metallic silver shimmer with silver glitter): Revolt is a bright silver, goes on well, a tad chunkier than others in texture.Gonzo (bright turquoise matte with floating tonal pearl): Gonzo is a beautiful cool blue, blends well.Slowburn (bright red-orange matte with floating pearl): A deep orange leaning towards red, also has a bit of micro glitter. This shade is not FDA approved for the eye area.Savage (bright hot-pink matte): Super pretty, cool pink, very bright. Blends well. It does stain if you don't have a primer on. Also not FDA approved for the eye area. Fringe (bright metallic teal): This is one of my favorites. It blends so well, almost cream texture, and a beautiful teal. Chaos (bright blue matte with floating tonal pearl): This is one that can give you trouble blending if you use too much and too sticky of a base. Jilted (bright metallic fuchsia with blue shift): This color gives me the most staining if I don't have a base shadow down under it. The fuchsia to blue shift is SO gorgeous. Not FDA approved for the eye area.
Urban (bright metallic purple): This color is my new favorite purple. It's very purple, very pigmented and blends wonderfully. Also not FDA approved for the eye area. Freak (bright green with gold shift): Very fun green, I have no other colors like it. Blends well.Thrash (bright lime green matte with floating gold pearl): My favorite green I own. Very nice as an inner corner highlight, if you're into that. This shadow is the one I get the least payoff with, it needs a primer for sure.
eye shadow pan
is 1.2 grams, so the palette a total of 12 grams of product. The amount of product and taking into account how pigmented they are makes it a good price for the palette. The palette also comes with a brush which is actually not that bad.
The pigmentation on these is pretty crazy. They are pressed pigments, so they apply better over a sticky base, but if you wear a base you barely need any product. The only color I don't get as much payoff as I'd like is Thrash.
The texture is very nice, almost creamy feeling.
glide on and blend out because of this odd texture.
The packaging is sturdy which is something I like. It's plastic or something and hard, so it's not going to break. It is a tad bulky, a touch thicker than my Naked 2 and I prefer sleek packaging. The packaging looks cool, full of color, like colored clouds. Overall, looks cool, but personally not my style.
Overall Quality: 10/10
The packaging is sturdy, the colors are super pigmented, the color selection is pretty good & the colors work on all parts of your face. Overall, I'm a big fan.
I use colored shadows frequently & I also like that I can use these anywhere on the face. I also love the texture
Texture, pigmentation, colors, versatility
Could use more warm colors, not for
Overall, I really like the palette and I have been using it a lot. I've used it to create specific looks just using this palette and also to just ad a touch of color here and there. I think this palette is a good start for someone who wants to wear more color, since you'll get a lot of colors and with 10 pans of 1.2 grams you'd probably end up spending more money buying the colors as singles. However, if you have
eyes or know
to red/pink pigments, I'd pass unless you're okay with not using four of the colors on your eyes. If you don't have eye sensitivities and you love color or would like to start adding pops of color, I'd highly
