I bought this palette for a special occasion, but it became a vital part of my make-up ritual. I mostly use the bottom row of colors for an everyday, natural looking glow. The colors layer nicely over each other without caking up. I use the top row for parties, dates, or days I'm just feeling frisky. The pigments are on the lighter side, but that makes these colors great for any occasion. You can go light or layer them up for a more dramatic effect. Some of the lighter colors are really loose and powdery though, so I always have to go back with a tissue and clean up. Overall, this palette is pretty great, especially for brown eyes (purple makes them pop!).
