Today I want to talk about the beautiful, but controversial from a Lean palette.
Packaging made of cardboard, was originally packaged in a plastic “pocket”.
Inside the only mirror and shadow brush is not provided. A normal mirror, does not distort, if you need to use it.
The total weight of shadows and 9.9 gr, each refil – 1.1. At a price of $ 27 out of $ 3 for the shade and 2.7 dollars per gram.
Smoky flavor, but the palette smells like cardboard and glue. And it smells quite bad and is still (the palette I have six months). But if specially it not to smell, the smell is almost not felt.
Just a palette of 9 shades – 3 matte and 6 shimmer.
Matte vary – in a palette of 3 honors and 3 “so-so” tone. Some of the shades accentuate the skin texture and even pores😑
Shimmer is almost identical – very soft, but at the same time loose. Dial them with a dry brush problematic, they crumble, falling down and clumps up. With your finger or a damp brush, things are much better. I prefer to apply them with your finger, then shadows fall evenly and not piled. Still not the most pleasant feature – shimmer highlight the skin texture. Can’t say that’s a problem for me, because I still madly in love as they look in the eyes, but I’m sure for many it is important.
So shimmer, get a dry brushShimmer applied with your finger, warm daylight
These lumps are formed even if a finger
I always wear the shade on the base, but I can say that those it is not particularly fastidious. I have them well kept like NYX HD, and Nars. But on hot summer days shimmer on weaker base slightly pushed in the crease late in the afternoon.
As the names of the colors, describe them in order)
Daylight Swatch with a finger on bare skin
Below Swatch is made with a warm natural light with your finger and brush.
1 – matte Burgundy-brown, dusty, pigmentation medium.
2 – pink-peach shimmer.
3 – my favorite shade in the palette all – cold pearly pink. More likely, I think, emphasizes the texture, but I still just love it😍 it has even formed an impressive hole)
4 – pink-red shimmer with gold glitter. The texture is slightly more crumbly than the other two shimmer.
5 – neutral beige, matte. Great TX – easily Blendable, well tolerated on the skin. I use it in almost every makeup with this palette.
6 – dusty peachy-pink shade. Also good for TX.
7 – Matt brown with the lobes purple. Characteristics as the first shade is a medium pigmentation, dusty, and poorly layered.
8 – milky. Excellent – not a bit chalky, dusty moderately, perfectly evens century. Use it to secure the base and soften the shading.
9 – the most horrible shade of rich Burgundy, matte. Very dusty, very poorly over the brush, showered everywhere and washing leaves a light tint. To the touch it is more milovy than the other matte shades.

I could not decide on this palette – I really like the color scheme, half matte shades, shimmer I just love. However, the faults enough – is the remaining three matte shades and still not a good fragile formula shimarov. Despite the fact that I’m dialing them with your finger and quite gently, palette still always a mess.
In General, the palette I’m rather pleased with it. But there is an important point – I got it as a gift with purchase. Now, knowing its pluses and minuses, I think I wouldn’t buy it.
Rating: 3 though I would like to raise a point for the beauty of shimarov.
Price: $ 27.
