My Thoughts
I love this palette! Much like with the Spellbinding eyeshadow book, I love that KVD is encouraging people to layer and experiment with shadows by including Dayglo. It really helps people to think outside of the box and get into the habit of playing with colors. Don’t limit yourself to just mixing the other 7 colors with Dayglo! Try mixing Galore with Dog Roses. See what happens when you play with Selena and Placebo.

I love the packaging. It’s such a super cute, bright design. I also appreciate the fact that the eyeshadow names are printed underneath each of the eyeshadows in the palette.

I love all 8 of the colors. I find these to be great colors for spring. I love mint, coral and purple! The peach is a great eye brightener. While I’m not typically a brown eyeshadow fan, I do like the bronze, Dog Roses, especially with Dayglo layered on top. I find South easy to use for blending out the edges of other colors.


  • Great eyeshadow texture
  • Very portable
  • Good value for the price


  • the purple has a tiny bit of fallout
