What I like about this palette is its uniqueness. I haven’t seen these colour combination with the other metallic palettes in the market. And for someone who loves makeup as much as I do, it stirs our creativity and desire to create different and more fun looks. The formula and texture are more towards cream to powder with a denser feel. It is still easily blended and I had no problem applying it on my eyelids.
The thing to consider before buying this palette is that it is a colourful eyeshadow palette and every shadow included has high-impact metallic finish. It may not be an everyday palette and there are no matte shades included except for Blackout, the black semi-matte finish. You will need some matte shades to be able to anchor the looks created with this palette, hence you may need to purchase individual matte shades or pull out a different palette from your collection that includes matte shade in it just to create one look. This palette is not for a beginner and it is not for everyone.
On the other hand, you can dramatize your makeup looks as much as you want just like a pro to create various 3D chromatic eye looks as well as endless effect. You can create looks that vary from light, sheer shimmers to a high, metallic opaque finish. These electro chrome eye shadows combine the perfect balance between shimmery pearls finishes and intensely rich pigments to create a striking, multidimensional look.
For best results with these metallic eyeshadows, apply with finger for maximum color payoff. To intensify any looks that you want to create, layer any shade over Blackout. The semi-matte black shade provide a great base to any eyeshadows with metallic and glitter finishes. It make them “pop”.
These shadows lasted a whole day on my eyelids and I enjoyed them very much. The packaging is made from hard plastic with a quite simplistic design on the cover, which I enjoy, and it also have a retro feel to it. The compact is quite sturdy with a decent sized mirror inside, perfect for travel.
Overall, I am quite pleased with this eyeshadow palette. You will like this palette if you are into colourful eyeshadows and metallic “pop” eyeshadows.
