If your starting out this is a great palette for you however I felt the eyeshadows were either tooo buttery-shimmers or were way too chalky- matters that fall out was insane and the focus was many brown tones. That being said it was set at a decent price for the amount of shades you get 💜

Real tea here, the colours of the blushed nudes looked super pretty and I was so excited and the moment I dug in. Chalky. Kickback. Stubborn.
The pigments weren't as strong as I had hoped and when you blend too much it turns into a chalky faint grey mess. Its ok for beginners who want a natural everyday look, mostly because you can hardly see them on the lid. And compared to brands like Make up Revolution, this is overpriced crap. Go pick up a pallet that wont disappoint for £10 rather than this..

Got this pallette as a present. I think its a bit overpriced for what it is. Some of the darker colours are harder to blend but overall theyre easy to apply. Does fade throughout the day though. On love with the lighter colours and they are now used daily. The eyeshadows fall out easily and have to keep patting them back into place..

I don't like to buy Palettes unless I know that i'm going to use all of the eyeshadows they offer. Since all of these eyeshadows are very natural, I didn't hesitate to buy it. So far so good!
The only downside is that since there are so many eyeshadows in the palette, there isn't very much of each one, but it seems to be lasting so far, so I can't complain (i've had it for a few weeks).

My little sisters got given this palette by one of their friends for their 12th birthday (they're twins); whenever they're out of the house, I snatch this palette out of their room and do my shadow. I don't think that I was expecting much when I first tried it but, I actually think the coverage is quite good. I would buy it again, it's not my favourite eyeshadow palette but, for the price, it is definitely worth it.

I'm not that great at doing eyeshadow looks but I have found this palette very easy to use. The shadows are blendable and very pigmented. There are many looks you can create from the colours. There is some fallout (especially with the shimmers) but I tend to wet my brush and that does help.

This was the first palette I ever really tried. The shades are nice and are very blendable. However, as I've tried more I do have to admit my tastes have strayed away from this palette. However, it is a good product for it's price and would recommend it if you're on a budget or are just starting to experiment with eyeshadows.

As a palette, this has a good combination of mattes and shimmers, and will suit all skin tones and colours. The shadows themselves blend well and have a decent amount of pigment, but there is a fair bit of fallout during application. The best way to get around this is by spraying your shadow brush(es) with a little bit of Fix+ before starting and the product is better to work with. Overall, it's a good palette, reasonable price and good range of colours, and I'd buy it again if I was in a rush / emergency and was in desperate need of shadows, but it's not one that I would call a staple, sorry!

A good beginners eye shadow pallette with nicely pigmented natural shades for any eye/skin colours, shouldn't be £9.99 would only pay £6.99 for this as i received it as a gift and probably wouldnt have purchased this myself!! The back is helpful with colour combinations and the mix of mattes and shimmers is good!! xx

I would only suggest to begginers to makeup or if anyones just looking for a cheap palette to use now and again as this eye shadow is quite chalky and don't last very long. Some of the colours are lovely though and great for girls in high schools which have strict rules on make up and it's fun to just play about with.

It is good for beginners and people that just want to try and experiment with their makeup, however would not recommend because its really not pigmented so you need to use a lot of product. The shadows also are very messy and get everywhere as well as being hard to blend. However it is cheap and comes at a good price.

I would recommend this pallet 100%, however a down fall to it is the pigment, to get a full look quite a bit of shadow is needed to bring out the true colour which makes it a little harder to blend, the eye shadows are more shimmer toned than anything so if your looking for more matte tones then i wouldn't recommend, other than this it is definitely worth the money!!

Great pallette for beginners. Has a good range of colours, most of the shadows are highly pigmented and super blendable, however some of the lighter shadows are chalky and not as smooth but are buildable and do look great when you've built up consistency. Great everyday colours which can be built up and switched around for a standout night time look. I personally use this as an everyday pallette. Colours last a good while and dont crease for me, bonus! They do have to be used with a primer underneath though, especially if your just using the lighter shadows. Good range of mattes and shimers.

Received this as a Christmas present, nice little pallete with a range of colours.. shadows are not very pigminted which left me to drag the eyeshadow across my eyelid. It's a nice little pallete for beginners who are starting to explore makeup and it's okay for everyday I guess, but wouldn't reccomend if you wanted bold eyes, great pigmentation etc.

It's okay, nothing too special. Pigment is okay, blendability is okay, and the shades are okay... It's just okay. Downsides: It's small, the colours sometimes blend in the palette if you're not careful... but it's a great palette for colour variety, but nothing unique.
