Verdict: I wanted to love this palette so much because the colors just screamed springtime to me but I was very disappointed. The palette looks beautiful and the colors are a nice change from the everyday neutral palette however the formulation on these eye shadows was just awful. The mattes in the palette where very chalky and looked muddy. They lacked a lot of pigmentation and just did not blend well. The shimmers, on the other hand, lacked consistency. A few of the colors were very pigmented while others required multiple layers to build up the color intensity. This palette was definitely a miss for me but I plan on keeping my eyes open for a new colorful springtime palette to add to my collection.
