This was my first palette, and it’s one that I enjoy the most.

I got this about 2 years ago when sephora was having their 15$ off a 50$+ purchase in December and i was so excited to get this (at the time it costed around 54$, now its around 62$)

The shades are very very flattering and are mostly frost/sparkly finish with 2 mattes (Naked (#3) and Buck (#5) I think that this is totally worth the money that you are paying. Personally I have olive skin so i tend to lean more towards neutrals so this is a great palette to work with especially if u are in the neutral-olive-yellow skins tones.

The first 3 shades (Virgin, sin, naked) are a bit more sheer than all the other shades. As you can see with the swatches they get more and more pigmented as they get darker. You cant really see naked because its very close with my skin tone, maybe just a tad bit darker.

Virgin: a really nice highlight shade, very sparkly

Sin: a pinky based champagne shade also sparkly

Naked: a matte flesh tone beige

SideCar: a taupe brown with gold glitters

buck: matte medium brown shade

halfbaked: a frosty gold (my fav shade!)

Smog: second most pigmented shade, a greenish yellow brown

Darkhorse: most pigmented shade, a dark moss green brown

Toasted: a pinky copper brown sparkly

Hustle: a taupe/muted chocolate brown shade

Creep: a dark navy (not matte, a bit satin finish)

Gunmetal: neutral dark blue with a bit of grey (satin finish)

 

I know there are many dupes out there for many of these shades (walking on eggshells by wet and wild, a great mini trio), however the time needed to locate every single one takes time, and honestly the quality of these eyeshadows are extremely worth it. only complain i have is the packaging which is terrible and collects a lot of dust. (they changed the packaging for naked 2 and 3! lucky! )

All in all ive been using this for 2 years now and i enjoy it so much, and i highly recommend it!
