Wow! I’m so tempted! But I’ve never ordered anything from Sephora’s line before. I know you said they’re good quality, but how good? Like what would you compare the pigmentation to? And are the shiny, smooth e/s colors cream e/s?

Thanks for the awesome pics!

I think they’re cream e/s as far as I could tell. They’re similar to other Sephora shadows – I wouldn’t say they’re up to par with MAC, but they’re not bad for the pricetag.

Not to be a buzzkill and this is only a partial criticism but I bought this. I ordered 2 online and they both arrived broken. Sephora was wonderful about it and replaced both. One is for myself and one is a gift. I have only tried to use a couple of the shades, but they were both the “cream” shades and they were lacking BIG TIME. Too dry, no color… just blah. The powder colors may be wonderful however so I will try to use it again… but it’s wayyyyy in the back of my fabulous MAC holiday collection!


I just bought one of these over ebay since Sephora don’t ship out of US. Keep my fingers crossed that mine will arrive safely.

MAC Holiday just hit the stores here last week…will have to eat only bread and water this month…

That’s most interesting, Mary, that the cream shades were lacking in color. I found that the ones I tested were decent enough – not the best, compared to a single shadow for $14-20, but worth it for the $48 price tag.

I bought mine over ebay cos I live in New Zealand and finally got it today .At first I was excited about it but I read a lot of
bad reviews about this palette on now i am thinking of returning it since I haven’t use it. But do you personally find that it pigmented enough?What is your personal experience? Still 50/50 about returning it..

I found it pigmented enough for the price. I mean, you can’t expect the same quality of a $20 shadow to be in every color. I found this a great starter palette or gift to give a new beauty addict.

My husband got me this for Christmas and It is WONDERFUL. It is so much fun to have all of these colors staring back at me from the palette. It is easy to get carried away.
