Linda Hallberg Cosmetics Spectral 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.72 oz.) is a visually stunning palette with a mix of almost richer pastel hues paired with some deeper grounding shades (like the plum and blue). It's just too bad that so many of the shades were disappointing--from issues with pigmentation to difficult in application, it was just a rough palette to work with. After I tried using it twice with abysmal results, I backed away from it out of frustration, and when I returned, it was still poor, even when I tried it over eyeshadow primer.
There were some shades that were decent to good, which kept the palette in the C range, but the spectacular failures were all I could remember--especially as Occult is the deepest shade and needed to add contrast when working with the other shades. With eight shades, there's just no room for two Fs.
