The I Want Kandee palette contains the following powder eyeshadow shades in a mix of matte, satin and shimmer finishes; Sparkling Cider (champagne nude), Pastry (matte cappuccino), Sugared Strawberry (shimmering coral pink), Cream Puff (matte sand), Sugar Plum (silvered lavender), Raspberry Cocoa (matte berry brown), Butterscotched (matte apricot), Sweet Toffee (gilded copper), Frosted Pink (gilded soft pink), Hot Chocolate (matte rich brown), Taupe Berry (matte smokey taupe), Licorice Rope (matte pitch black), Banana Cream Pie (matte cream), Ice Cream (matte pinky cream) and Whipped Cream (pearly white).
This is tricky to review as it's not bad, just something I think is unnecessary. On one hand the shadow quality is excellent on all but one of the shades (Liquorice Rope needs building up), the shades are very wearable and the packaging is awesome. But on the other hand, there isn't anything here that hasn't been done before many other times, so if you have a few palettes already then you already have very similar shades to what's on offer here. If you are new to eyeshadow so want a helping hand with selecting shades that work really well together [the shades are split into three clusters using the best well-coordinated options], or are looking for a attractive gift [the way the tin palette is designed to resemble a vintage chocolae box is a nice touch], then I Want Kandee is worth the splurge, but I don't think this is a must-own palette for those of us who already own, ahem, a 'few' eyeshadow palettes.
So yeah; all in all this palette falls onto the ho-hum side for me, especially as the shades look different in real life compared to how they appeared on screen = it turns out that I can dupe everything. I regret falling for the hype and ordering it. Like I said above the shades are pretty and the formula quality is mostly good, so I'll continue to use the palette as it's easy to apply the shadows and they wear well. But, in my opinion, the colour picks are pretty "blah" as they're all overdone - Too Faced themselves have permanent palettes with these kinds of shades in them.
