|Ain't the colors pretty?|
|Left part of the palette are all matte colors - White, Royal Blue-ish, Magenta, Orange|
|The right side of the palette consists of two shimmers (top row) and two matte (bottom row) - Pink, Olive, Yellow, Maroon|
|It has a little mirror inside, very convenient for travel. :) It also comes with two sponge tip applicators, which I never use.|
|This is the front of the package. The top is slightly domed, which I am not much of a fan of because it takes up so much space in my vanity kits.|
|Back of the palette, containing the ingredients as well as the price tag. This palette only costs 149.00php.|

♥ I found the packaging hard to open. I am afraid that it would just slip out of my hands which may lead to shattering the shadows as I open it.
♥ Also reminds me of those cheap, China-made makeup. Though, I do use some China-made makeup (and, mind you, some of the drugstore cosmetics you buy are manufactured in China) because I really have no bad reaction to it. As for lead content. Yeah, yeah, whatever. There are so many other "harmful elements" around that could endanger our health. :) I will cover my views on China-made makeup in a separate post, maybe. Anyway, thought I'd point this out to those who are concerned about cheap, looking makeup. :)
♥ Domed lid, which I hate because it takes up space that it shouldn't really be taking.
♥ Really good color payoff, with and without a base! Swatches can be seen below.
♥ No pungent smells. I know some eyeshadows do have unnecessary scents. >.<
♥ Does not crease (with primer underneath).
♥ Lasts very long!
♥ Feels so buttery soft on the fingers. Well, I don't know if the "ridges" found on the eyeshadows themselves contribute to that buttery feeling on the fingers. But, I think they apply and blend like a charm!
Okay, now time for some fun swatches!
|Left-side shadows - without base.|
|Still left-side, bottom shadows - pink and orange, without base. Both Matte|
|Left-side, top shadows - white and blue, without base. Both Matte|
|Right-side, bottom shadows - yellow and red, without base. Both matte. Yellow is quite chalky, but could be smoothened with a little more blending.|
|Right-side, top shadows - pink and green, without base. The only shimmer shadows. SA said otherwise. Said that the yellow and red were shimmers, but I did not find any shimmer in those two.|
|Left-side shadows, with base.|
|Right-side shadows, with base.|
Well, 'til my next review/post!
