This little baby sure doesn’t disappoint! The metallics are super buttery & a little goes a long way. There’s only two matters which is fine if you love my metallics and plan on using other mattes with this palette. The one thing this palette is missing to stand alone is a light matte for blurring (for my light skin tone). I’m not sure how the two mattes would work with a variety of deeper skin tones. The only thing I’d recommend with this palette are other transition shades to change up your looks and your own personal base shade for blurring, whatever it might be.

Omg this shade. It's not for everyone & not for every day unless you enjoy a metal glow. This shade is so beautiful I wish it was sold as a single. It looks like a dark pink, but sheered out on the skin, it's not as deep. I'm light (

I just recently found this, and have really been loving the little gem! It's buttery & smooth, and works great as a transition for those with lighter skin tones. A great butter-cream-vanilla-y shade for sure. Brulee's only downfall is that it contains talc as it's 1st ingredient, which tends to make a powder product softer & fall apart more easily. One thing that could also contribute to the slight breakage here & there would be the flimsy tin that the product is sold in—I depotted mine & it's definitely in a softer, more malleable metal pan than most other shadows. Other than that, it's well worth giving it a shot!

This is an amazingly muted pinky-purple shade that I like to wear either above my crease, in my crease, or on my lid, depending on the look that I'm going for. It really applies & blends out easily with most brushes. * the only time I'll use my ring finger to apply these is with the more sparkly shades, & only for my lids (espec when I just want a pop in the center of the lid)

The current price is $19, it comes in a little pot, & I love the coverage I can achieve when used with MAC's 195 concealer brush. I notice that I use much less product when I apply with the brush as opposed to just using my finger (this applies to all face makeup). I'm light complexioned, oily T-Zone, with both pink & yellow undertones (neutral), & was matched to NW20 as my concealer shade (I was a 1R04 @ Sephora, but had been running around rt before the pics were taken). DiorSkin Star in 021 is a good match on me as far as base goes. Anyway, def worth the $19, & it isn't as "dry" as the Pro Long-Wear concealer, which I found settled into the fine lines under my eyes (like when you smile or laugh..), & made my skin look super dry. I actually went in FOR the Pro Long-Wear, & came out with the Studio Finish...
