I got a sample of the smokey palette. That had light grey, silver, purple and violet shades. I to wear a more natural nude look for eyeshadow, not smokey. These are just too dark of colors for me. Also, wish birchbox would actually show you what their sending as apprise to the picture of the full size of the product.
What a bargain!
I recently reviewed this on my YT channel comparing it to the high-end Smoky palette and let me just say, this palette really surprised me. I expected the shadows to be chalky and patchy, maybe a little hard to blend, but some of these are even more pigmented than the original and easier to use. The mattes did have just a tiny bit of trouble blending, but if you are careful and know what you're doing, they are definitely not the worst mattes around. I have many eyeshadow palettes, they're my favorite thing to buy, and this definitely beats out quite a few of my more expensive ones. I'd definitely recommend this to a friend or family member to try out!
I really love the hues in this palette. I am completely satisfied! The palette makes it easy to apply and layer all the colors for that perfect smokey eye! I love that there is a variety of both, warm and cool colors! Definately a must have palette!
The perfect dupe for UD Smoked pallet
I was skeptical at first, but for the price I figured "why not?" I'm so glad I have this pallet. It's super pigmented and blendable. Some shades kick up some dust but nothing too bad.
So much bang for your buck!
I am in love with the palette! The shadows have great pigment and blend VERY easily. This is a great palette for someone that is looking to get into the smoky eye game. The shadows are as "user friendly" as you can get. A little goes a long way, no caking needed here.
