The eye shadows are all powder but have a finely milled creamy formula to the touch. The finish is a mix of matte, satin and shimmer. Shades are pressed into the compact in diagonal waves of colour.
The individual wave patterns are big enough to get your brush stuck into the palette without colour transferring onto the brush from the colour next door.
We have the palette in Exposure. This is a combination of shell, violet, pink copper, eggplant and lavender.
On initial application these were a little crumbly and there was some drop down. Once applied though these blend into each other beautifully. It's easy to build colour depth, add in a bit of shimmer and highlight where you want it and create a defined socket..all within the one palette.
The colour intensity and shimmer is increased when used with a wet brush.
As you can see from the swatches, the colours translate onto the skin exactly as they look in the palette.
