It is quite an expensive product as the RRP being 35.00, as their single eyeshadows are 14 pounds... I feel that this is worth the high price tag as you get 12 shades as well as a travel sized bottle of primer and a shadow brush which retails at 14.50.
The colours are well pigmented and really pop on top of primer, You don't need a lot which means they should also last a while. My favourite shade in the set is half baked (6th shade from the left) It is a beautiful warm golden shade and goes with the lighter shades like "virgin" (first shade on left) to create a pretty day look, or can be vamped up with "hustle" (third shade on right) to create a sultry look.
Basically this is a palette which really should be in every girls drawer, there is a million different combinations and most of the shades can be worked together (although please dont shove them all on at once). For me, this is what I want as I tend to keep my eye makeup fairly neutral for work.. yet I don't like wearing the same shades every day!
There is a combination of shimmery, glittery and matte shades which means you can easily create a neutral eye to suit your mood.
There is also a Naked2 palette which costs the same and comes with a lip gloss and double ended brush. I literally stood in Sephora for about ten minutes deciding between the two and only went for the Naked as it has a greater variety of darker shades. However Naked2 looks incredible too and it is on my "to buy" list.
In other news, I got the job I was waiting on hearing back from last week! I am so exicted about it as it sounds so interesting. It is working in the University as an admin assistant, I start next wednesday!!! I need to buy some work clothes really soon.. any excuse to shop :)
