I ordered mine from Harrods, (and I believe they still have some in stock there too!). I was not initially impressed with the packaging - for the price I was expecting a mirror and at least a plastic case, but it's made of cardboard, so being a big sucker for packaging I have to admit this was a little bit of a disappointment, however...
"It's what's on the inside that counts"
The eye shadows in this pallet are like nothing I have ever used before. The matte shades are so easy to blend, especially 'sandalwood' which is a stunning tan colour and works perfectly for a transition shade.
My absolute favourite in the whole pallet has to be 'Angelic'. In one word it is perfect, so so pigmented, and it makes it so easy and quick to create a really pretty eye look.
Now here is where it gets interesting. The textured eye shadows in the pallet are like nothing I have used before. I must stress, do not try to apply these with a brush because you will not get the colour pay off. Huda advises this too, so when I read this online I really wasn't sure. I am a huge brush hoarder, I love my make-up brushes, and I haven't applied make up with my hands since the dream matte mouse days. But honestly, you will not be disappointed. The colour pay off is insane. So glittery, so pigmented, so dreamy. They are nothing short of perfect.
So is this pallet worth the hype? Absolutely. I am loving experimenting with the colours and creating more dramatic eye looks, and the sparkles are just perfect for the upcoming festive period.
