The second I saw Temptalia’s review of this palette I knew I needed it in my life. As soon as I saw the new shades and the new formula, it screamed my name.
This palette is absolutely beautiful. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, it reminds me of something out of The Little Mermaid. The packaging does scratch up fairly easily, but it isn’t super obvious with the pattern. Each of the 8 shadows has 1.5 grams of product.
The inside just makes me happy. The colours are all neutral-bronze/purple, shades that I lean to on an everyday basis. There’s also a giant mirror, which makes it perfect to take travelling. It has a transition and a highlight shade, and a variety of different lid colours so it’d also be perfect for the beginner, or someone wanting an everyday palette. The packaging is also incredibly sturdy – I can’t sing the praises of this palette enough!
Swatches bottom-top: Cove; Sand; Mermaid; Seashell; Wave; Abyss; Reef; Starfish. With the exception of Cove and Sand (which are more matte) these shadows swatch amazingly well – I hardly pressed my finger into the shadow!
On the eyes, these shadows are a dream. They are incredibly long lasting, both with and without an eye primer I can get an easy 8+ hours – and that’s hard because I often struggle with colour staying on my lids!
Overall, I’m 100% happy with this eyeshadow palette! I think the packaging is perfect, the formula is incredible and the shades are 100% to my taste! I’m not sure when this releases in Australia as I purchased from the American Sephora website, however I definitely recommend picking this palette up – it isn’t to be missed!
