  • This eyeshadow palette is filled with 12 must-have neutrals in a just-released, sensorial eyeshadow formula that’s designed to impart your richest looks yet. Curated with a full lineup of essential shades—from creamy nudes to decadent darks in matte and shimmering finishes—this potent spectrum also features both cool and warm toned neutrals for ultimate versatility.  

  • Newbury Steet: White Gold Shimmer (Frosted finish)
  • Windsor: Warm Beige Matte (A lot of fall out, a bit patchy) 
  • Privilege: Gold Metallic (Semi opaque) 
  • Dover: Neutral Brown Matte (Patchy, powdery, and looked more taupe than brown)

  • Foix: Peach Matte
  • Castille: Umber Brown Matte 
  • Alnwick: Copper Shimmer 
  • Beaumaris: Chocolate Brown Shimmer

  • Splendor: Pewter Sparkle
  • Versailles: Bronze Shimmer
  • Montaillou: Dark Brown Matte (Patchy and chalky)
  • Reale: Black Satin (A bit patchy)

Final Thoughts: 

  • 1st row: Pretty lighter shades for a natural look 
  • 2nd row: Nice warm/neutral shades that can be used every day - Foix, Castille, Alnwick are my favourites from this palette! All the shades were very pigmented. 
  • 3rd row: Can create a lovely smokey eye (leans cooler/neutral tone) - Splendor is absolutely beautiful.
Overall, I feel like it's a really well put together palette - a lot of matte/shimmer shades, and a variety of light-medium-dark colors. Additionally, a nice blend of neutral and warmer shades. 

However, my main problem with this palette is the fact that their matte shades are not creamy. Most of them tend to be dry, chalky and patchy in comparison to my ABH Modern Renaissance Palette - meaning they most definitely need to be used on top of a primer. Additionally, there was a lot of inconsistency with the formula; even the shimmer/satin shades would vary. 

That being said I still think that the palette is good quality - but compared to the $74 price tag attached to it,  you can spend the same amount and probably get a better quality palette. 

Overall Rating: 7.5/10
