I like this palette. While the quality isn’t great, it’s still a good everyday smoky eye shadow. I would recommend that you give the other shades of this palette a try. Once this one is used up I probably won’t buy this again.
Pros: Easy, convenient, travel friendly.
Cons: Rough texture, not very pigmented.
