I picked these up quite a while ago (mid-February) and have been loving them but have been so slow in posting and reviewing. I seem to be having some review/blogging post issues; as in getting them done in a timely manner.
Anyway, I am loving these so much! I find the colors of the trios work so well together. I love when you find a palette/quad/trio where you love all the colors, so often there is one that I don’t fully enjoy. As for color pay off some will love and some won’t. I love that the colors are build-able. Sometimes I fear dark colors because I don’t want to have a smidge of shadow on my brush and it be WOWZA dark on my lid. With these I don’t have to worry about it applying too dark during the day, but at night I can build the color. The shadows also aren’t overly shimmering. Some have a little twinkle but it is so mild that it is a great compromise between matte and shimmer, which I am loving.
All in all I am loving these shadows. Yes, a higher price point but the colors are gorgeous and I love how they apply and blend. I think it is worth it, especially when I find palettes that are these gorgeous.
