Disappointing
Purchased

I was really excited about this palette when I saw the plum colors. 3 of the 6 colors were extremely disappointing. The gold color does not blend well and goes on very patchy. The middle plum color (that I was most excited about) looks completely different on the eyelid. It looks like an odd orange/brown on me - not plum. The dark brown color does not contain nearly enough pigment - it looks like a very subtly brown once applied. I've tried all of these colors with and without primers. It doesn't help at all. I gave the two stars for the additional two colors in the palette. They are unique to my collection and apply somewhat better that the other three. However, one is just a slightly darker version of the other. I like that the packaging feels sturdy and contains a mirror. This is such an odd complaint but the packaging smells horrible when you open it. When I open the palette and hold in near my face (to use the mirror) it smells like plastic and chemicals. I've had it for a while and the smell has not lessened! Bottom line, I would not purchase this again or recommend it to anyone.
