Skincare Sets

I like sets that offer smaller sizes with a few coordinating products, so you can have a good trial of a particular brand or line without splashing out for full-sizes, but they have to be large enough to be used for at least a couple of weeks. Sometimes sets seem like they include products that are more niche/user-dependent, so while it adds value, it doesn’t always add value to me.

What is the perfect number of shades in an eyeshadow palette? Why?

What is the perfect number of shades in an eyeshadow palette? Why?

Anything between 9 and 15 works well for me. I think 9 is great for more complementary palettes, but if I’m looking for something more cohesive, it’s usually 12-15 that gets there for me (while still offering a good variety in depth and finish).
