My Opinion/Review: I happened to get this product for $4.99 USD at (now called; The original retail price for this is $19.00 USD, so I saved $14.01 USD, amazing right!?
Appearance / Packaging?
I haven’t seen packaging like this before, but I actually like it, very unique. It’s like a tin you get that has breath mints in it lol. I also like how the shadows are laid out on the inside, and the brand name is etched on one of the shadows (cute!).
The eyeshadows are not as pigmented as I hoped it would be, its definitely a little misleading when you directly look at the colors in the tin. The colors are pretty sheer, but still lovely to use, especially if you’re a neutral makeup lover.
The eyeshadows within this tin/palette are quite easy to blend out, maybe because there sheer to begin with?
The only eyeshadow that has fallout is the darkest color in this palette, otherwise all the eyeshadows are good, no fallout what so ever.
Creasing or Fading?
If you don’t have any eyeshadow primer on and your lids are oily, these eyeshadow will definitely crease on you and throughout the day it will fade because of its sheer quality.
Bottom Line …
I honestly don’t recommend you buying this palette for the full price of $19.00, but if you’re still interested in purchasing this product, definitely get at

Color Description & Swatches: So you know which I shadow I’m talking about (because the shadows don’t have names), I’ve numbered them.
1) A Sheer Gold Based Lime Green Color
2) A Sheer Taupey Brown Color
3) A Sheer Gold Color
4) A Sheer Gold Based Dark Olive Brown with Gold Shimmers.
