Birchbox Breakdown

The nymph Calypso, Greek mythology says, sang so sweetly she enchanted Odysseus. Now, do a little very real enchanting of your own with this bewitching eye shadow palette. With its assortment of eight shadows—a mix of matte and satin finishes, plus one beguiling hint of glitter—you can create an wide array of captivating looks (and you won’t have to sing a note).

How to Use

Using a shadow brush, sweep on any look from a dramatic smoky eye (for enthralling a wandering hero) to a slightly shimmery wash of color (for conquering your morning meeting). With a fine-tipped brush, the dark matte shadows double as liners.

Gorgeous blues & neutrals

I've had my eye on this pallet for awhile now. So I picked it up on sale SALE plus birch points. Soooo happy.
These shadow pans are ginormous. And It has Beautiful matte & satin shades with one soft champagne glitter highlight/shadow shade.
I typically shy away from blues but not with this pallet they're the perfect hues to enhance my own baby blues.
My complexion is fair so I don't have pigmentation problems that some reviewers indicated but primers always help correct those issues as well as any creasing.
Soooooo happy!

Wonderfully Versatile Shades in Premium Textured Shadows

It's perhaps the most appealing quality of MAKE's eyeshadows that they can be dusted dry for a sweep of light color or layered wet for an intense true pigment. The Calypso palette is curated with just this in mind. The heavily glittered Alabaster gives a bright mostly translucent burst of highlight, the darker shades—such as Woad, Midnight, and Cast Iron—can be used wet with an eyeliner brush as you would apply a cake liner, and the brighter shades—especially Aquamarine and Star Anise—can be applied wet for a more dramatic pop of color. The combination of effects around the eye you can get out of this one palette ranges from candy bright to subdued neutral, from shimmery to entirely matte.

The quality of the shadows themselves is very impressive. When used with a decent primer, color holds through the day, creasing is minimal even after hours of wear, and fallout onto the lower lid or upper cheek is nonexistent even with the most shimmery of finishes. As mentioned above, the intensity of the shade is variable but buildable, especially if applied wet. Well done, MAKE, well done.

I wanted to like this but no.

I just can't. The colors are cute, but they're barely pigmented so it doesn't matter how much you put on, it looks like you barely have any shadow on, let alone the actual color. I used primer and all, but nope. Waste of money.

I was very excited about this product because of the colors but I found it to be very chalky and it creases a lot on me. Overall I am not very happy with it.

Pretty weak pigment

This shadow really didn't show up on my super pale skin without a lot or effort. I love the brands lip glosses, but this palette was a miss for me.
