NOT up to Blinc standards
I was so excited to receive and use these shadows. I have been using Blinc mascara since its creation (way back when it was originally called "Kiss Me"). It is the only mascara that I am able to use on my ultra sensitive eyes. So naturally, I assumed these shadows would be just as as terrific. The color of the shadows are very neutral and pretty with a few deeper tones to create a smokey eye however, they did not cover as well as I thought they would. The texture is similar to a cheap drugstore brand as opposed to a silky high end brand like I had expected. But then came the rash! After one use, my eyelids up to my brow bones developed a red and flaky skin rash! I tried the product one more time about a week later (to be sure it was the shadows and not something else). Again, an allergic type rash!! Very disappointed in the quality and clearly less gentle ingredients of these shadows. The brush included is nice but thats it. Bummer.
Colors and Product A+
Finally! I have been so pleased with the mascara I decided to try this palette. A little nervous with how many colors and not sure how they would all work with my skin tone - I was blown away! The texture of the product goes on so smooth and blends better than any shadows I have used. It is tough to find a "allover" base color that is not too yellow or too pink - the light tones are perfect to blend together. I use the dark to line the lids (as eyeliner) and it does not flake or smear. Even the colors I thought I would not use - I do! They are so easy to blend together. The package is a bit bulky but I got over that as soon as I used the product (all in one case) It comes with a brush that is very nice too (much better quality than most) I will definitely buy again and would recommend expanding the line.
