Price: $36 at Sephora

Product Description from the Website:
A five-shade palette of vivid, show-stopping eye shadows.
What it does:
Steal the show with spectacular, high performance Buxom® Color Choreography™ Eyeshadow. This versatile palette offers a range of finishes from matte to shimmer in a multitude of alluring shades, including a vivid pop of color. Mix and match the creamy, rich, blendable shadows. The options are endless—let your imagination run wild.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Phthalates
– GMOs
– Triclosan

My Thoughts: I adore the colors in this palette but the pigmentation is just not there. The description on the website says that they are “vivid, show-stopping eye shadows”…well they’re not. I still like the palette for softer looks but I definitely do not think that it lives up to the description. Swatches are over bare skin.

Quality: 4/5
Value: 3/5
Pigmentation: 2/5
Packaging: 5/5
Overall: 14/20

I can’t say that I recommend this palette based simply on the fact that it does not live up to the claims. I do think that it is a nice palette for a softer look.

My Thoughts: I adore the neutral colors in this palette but the pigmentation is just not there. The description on the website says that they are “vivid, show-stopping eye shadows”…well they’re not. I still like the palette for softer looks but I definitely do not think that it lives up to the description. Swatches are over bare skin.
