Up until the release of this collection, I had never heard of Tati. I heard about all of the buzz and excitement surrounding her partnership with Birchbox and wanted to try one of the shadow sticks (my November box included a LOC lip sample) .
I couldn't choose a color, so I decided to go for the set since it was the best value. I have only had them for a few days, but I am totally hooked.
I am a product hoarding makeup lover, with eyeshadow/eye products making up the majority of my collection. Any palette you can think of, I own it. I have never been a fan of shadow sticks or shadow creams before, but I have been converted. These go on super smooth, have amazing pigment and color and sheen (without the fallout from powder shadows), don't crease AT ALL, blend together easily, and let you create smoky or daytime looks that look like they were done by a professional makeup artist.
I love all of the colors in the set, though I do think the brown/copper shades are a little similar to each other. The lightest color doesn't pack a ton of color, but it has a great highlight affect and really brightens up your eyes without looking like you're wearing a lot of product. I love these tones, but I do hope that in the near future more color options are released, as I could totally see myself replacing most of my powder shadows with these.
I travel a lot for work and packing my makeup always becomes a huge production because I have to pack so many brushes. I blend these with my fingers then just wipe off the excess from my hands. Now I am leaving for a 3 week cross country trip tomorrow and bringing one other small palette in addition to my Tati LOC set, and 2 shadow brushes.
Total game changer!
