I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this palette in all the years I’ve owned it. When it first came out, I nearly bought it simply to get the shade Mushroom (which, at the time, wasn’t available as a single shadow) but when I looked at this, I realized it was silly to purchase it for just that one shade, especially since I already had Rockstar and Gunmetal and perhaps Money). But then my daughter received it as an Xmas gift (she’d really wanted the original Naked palette!) and liked it but wasn’t thrilled. So I bought Naked for her and she gave me this. I really like it. It is actually a pretty good travel palette – small and with a range of versatile colours from light to darker and from neutral to “less neutral”. I would never use Infamous – I simply don’t wear colours like that on my eyes – but every other shade in here is great and it’s in this palette that I discovered Wreckage, which is a fabulous mid-toned brown that doesn’t lean red. And Mushroom is a staple taupe-grey and one of those shades you can always rely on when you want a nice eye but don’t want to have to think or do a lot of work. The only downside is the case….it’s actually not that difficult to open once you know the “trick” of sort of pushing just on one side rather than trying to pull it open with even pressure all around but until you figure out the best way, it can be fiddly (and even when you’ve got it sussed, it can still be tricky!).
