Having both palettes really gives you a lot of options when it comes to color combinations. What colors do you like the best?
I really love the texture of these shadows. They’ve got good pigmentation. They’re smooth. They blend easily. These are all things I want in an eye shadow. I think these palettes are a nice investment, which is why I added them to my collection.
