Great eyeshadow palette. I got the soul palette. Perfect for a complete look. Five matte eyeshadows, (beige, warm brown, cool brown, dark brown and black) and the rest shimmery and satin. There is one brown with sparkles that I wasn't crazy about( I don't like sparkles). However, I am very happy with this palette, and I am going to purchase another. Kitten is even in this palette. :)
I bought this for travelling as I wanted an every day palette that would be less bulky than my UD Naked palettes. This palette has a nice mix of matte and pearly/shimmer shadows. Unfortunately I find the matte shades way too chalky, they are difficult to blend and have a lot of fall out. The shimmer shades have a nicer texture. Overall, a decent palette, but not worth the price.
I was sourcing out for a neutral + shimmery eyeshadow palette when I found this. I went to sephora store but it was out of stock and I have to wait for the palette to arrive in store before I purchase it. I wanted to get a square palette inside of a rectangular one because of easy storage. Hence, I had some expectations when I purchased this palette. It is a sleek gold + rose gold design with a large mirror with 12 beautiful shades. I use this palette whenever I have an event because the colours are really great for layering, with the matte colours used for solid layers and shimmery colours as a finish touch, creating this "glam" look. I did not manage to use all shades such as substance because I think I do not suit silver eyeshadow colour. (how I use it: First, I use Individual to blend out my eyelids, with kitten applied to near inner corner out to half of my eyelids. Next, I apply affection and character on top of it at the end of the eyelids then blending out all the shades with a blending brush so that the colours will be sealed and blended in evenly. I go back to kitten again to lightly pat the shade near my inner corner for the "shimmerly look" then finish off with light for my inner corners. Being is then blended out near my waterline to contrast off the heavy colours) The shades are indeed beautiful and is pigmented enough. It can last about 5-6 hours when you are outside after which, you have to touch up your eyelids if you are going out for the entire day. The palette helps beauty guru well for creative make up look with the combination of matte and shimmery shades. The palette can really last for a long time because of its wide range of shades. I would recommend this palette for beauties who wants to experiment both matte and shimmery shades and most importantly neutrals. I would not repurchase the palette again because of price consideration and I would want to experiment other kind of coloured palettes.
I purchased the Mind & Spirit palettes. As others have said, Mind is completely matte. This is wonderful because there aren't too many all-matte palettes out there.Both palettes have excellent pigmentation, blend well, and are excellent value. The one criticism I have of the Spirit palette is that a few of the lighter colours basically look the same on the lid once applied (using primer, of course). It's a bit disappointing. To get the colours looking at least a bit distinct you'll have to pack it on. The darker colours work great, though.
Bought this because I want a palette that has plenty nude colours so I can bring along for travelling for a easy makeup without bringing a few palettes. But honestly, I am quite disappointed for this palette.
The colours are okay pigmented, but the pigmentation did not meet my expectation. I guess I did not do enough research before buying this palette.
Colour are really not long lasting enough. I intend to use this when travelling, so lasting power must be good, but I am really disappointed. I used some eye primer before applying this shadows but the colour just don't stay on eyes for long even I just stayed in door. If I went outdoor, it worse.
Fall-out problem. I really don't mind with palette with fall-out problem because I have some palettes with more serious fall-out. But for this palette, the pigmentation is not too good, not so long lasting and fall-out, I really wouldn't recommend people to buy this palette. Not worth the price. Brands like Tarte has minor fall-out issue but the colour pay off really satisfy me.
