I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS EYESHADOW KIT! I had purchased the original eyeshadow kit and loved it so couldn't imagine this one being less than fantastic and I was right, it''s truly beyond FANTASTIC! I'm glad I ordered two of them because this will sell out quickly and I want to have a second for the second origin kit I purchased. Hey if one is good then two is even better! BRAVO CYNTHIA!!!!

great palette
Purchased

I waffled for quite some time about actually purchasing this palette after reading the reviews. I'm still a little bit up in the air to be honest.

The colors are GREAT (but you HAVE to use a primer), but as other people have mentioned, they're very fine. It makes precise application nearly impossible since it seems to get everywhere - totally fine if you're like me and you just blend everything. But if you want any sort of crispness to your colors, you might want to skip this one.

The licorice color (grey) is an oddball to me. I tried using it as a crease color, but with the cotton candy (purple) as a lid color, it was WAY too dark. It didn't blend well either. The licorice is a good color, but I'll likely pair it with other shadows I have, and find a different crease color to use with the rest of the palette.

Marshmallow and cloud are great highlight colors. I've used them as a brow highlight and in the corners of my eyes.

Meh- its ok
Purchased

I have the Cynthia Rowley eye liners which are incredible and glide on so smoothly so I was really excited to try her eye shadow. I was underwhelmed with this pallet. I don't feel like the colors last and the lighter shades hardly show up. Wouldn't recommend to buy.

Colors for all blends
Purchased

This Cynthia Rowley eyeshadow pallet is out of the park. I love the purple blend that is already a color but the other colors blend together really nicely too. I enjoy the size of the colors, I feel as though they come onto the brush nice and stay vibrant. The container of the pallet is beautiful and fits perfectly in a cosmetic bag or a drawer.

Great base and color correcting

None of these colors are my ideal, but the light ivory color is the best base shadow I've tried on my ultra-pale skin. The green is great for correcting any redness, and the pink and purple make for a great spring and summer look. I use it in combination with the Game Face palette, Naked 2, and a few others. The green makes a great second base coat for any grey/silver smokey looks. The shadows are very smooth and velvety, and stay the whole day when used over a primer.

Too light even for a light complexion...
Purchased

I really wanted to like this pallet because it has all my favorite colors. The shades have no pigmentation or color pay off and the powder is milled too fine and dry. If it stays on at all it doesn't really show up .The speckled shade was only speckled on the top, odd that. Even shadow primers, bases , etc. don't help to make it show up or stay put. A waste of time and money for me.

Not as good as I thought
Purchased

Pretty but just not as much color as I was hoping for. Takes a lot to show up. Good if you want a really suttle look

Such pretty colors! Why can't I see them?
Purchased

Loved the color palette and ignored some of the reviews that said the color didn't stick. I thought, well, those girls just aren't using eye shadow primer! So I bought it and played around...it's so sad. So pretty, but so non-existent on my lids. There's so little to blend. Low in pigments. I suppose if you like the merest hint of color, this would be good for you. I don't love over the top color, but I like more than this offered. I won't buy anymore eye shadow from this brand.
