I really liked the eye shadow sticks. Personally, I prefer them to the powder because I am a beginner with eyeshadow. I think it is easier to apply with a stick when you’re not the greatest at mixing colors or blending because you have more control over exactly where the color is going. They’re very creamy and glide on very easily. The colors (we received) in the sticks were darker and had a very nice shimmering, metallic look. These colors would be great for an evening out or on someone who loves a smokey-eye look.
I LOVED the packaging! I thought the golden color and graphics matched the feel of the palette perfectly. The brush and mirror inside are very convenient. The pigment of the powder was pretty good. However, I did have to apply a few coats of the certain colors for my skin tone. What stood out to me about this palette is that I liked every color, which is rare. I think usually, most people pick out a few colors they like and never use the others. In this palette the brighter colors match the more subtle ones perfectly. The colors look great together, which makes using all of them way more likely.
