So this is a super cute little palette that features 8 gorgeous shades across matte and multi-chrome pearl finishes. Interestingly, each matte has it’s matching shimmer, and they can be used together to create depth and dimension, or mixed and matched, discovering new combinations.

The matte shades apply flawlessly and contain oil absorbing particles which diffuse light to make  the eyelids appear more smooth.

  1. I purchased this palette and was so excited to use. The color range is beautiful. Quality is BAD. Crumbly, muddy and sparkles all over the face. It does not worth $55.00. But who knows may be it works on somebody else. Lucky that Nordstrom has an amazing return policy.
