I've never purchased a M.A.C product before but this palette caught my eye. I haven't treated myself to an eyeshadow palette in so long but I figured, it's my birthday, why not?? When I received it, I was a little.. shocked.. at how small the palette and pans of eye shadow actually are. The palette itself is only a little bit as big as an IPhone 6s cut in half and the pans are (literally) only as big as a penny. So that was disappointing. But, I paid no mind and decided to try the actual product. The swatches, were gorgeous. The color was rich and blendable. However, there was a lot of kick up on the shimmer shades and within 5 minutes of the swatches being on my arm, they began to rub off! I took my hand and swiped downward and *poof* they all blended together and came right off.. highly disappointing product. The only reason it's getting two stars is because it's a beautiful assortment of shades and if I can work with it using a primer.
