Review

Eyeshadows: As you noticed from swatches, the majority are neutral mattes with a few dark/shimmer shades thrown in the mix. This palette is great for achieving more natural looks but can get some drama from the deeper shades. They are soft and do have some kick back, so make sure to tap your brushes. The black shade, Desire, isn’t intense and more of a grey/black, which fits into the natural theme nicely. 

Highlighters: They are beautiful, wear well throughout the day and offer a soft glow! Look amazing  paired together for a slightly more intense glow, but still nothing too crazy! 

Under Eye Corrector: Amazing for brightening and covering up dark under eye area. They are thicker, so I added some moisturizer/serum since my eye area is drier and find it just makes application smoother even though these do blend beautifully.

Bronzer: Added a nice warmth to my face, but I am fair and it got a bit dirty when applied with a heavy hand.

Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder: Beautiful! Didn’t have any issues with it on dry areas, held up around my oily nose, and looked flawless! (Not pictured since it is translucent!)

Blushes: Soft, build able, applied smoothly, and added a lovely flush of color to the cheeks.

Lipsticks: Nice, creamy texture and offered pigmentation but didn’t last more than a couple of hours. Unless you carry the palette with you for touch ups, I recommend brining a back up lip product!

Final Thoughts

This is a great palette for anyone who is just getting into makeup or loves the natural look, which is what It Cosmetics is all about and does so well. The quality is amazing and I reach for this little box multiple times throughout the week!!
