   This palette could be the start of a revolution in drugstore makeup. I truly believe that.  For less than $10 at Bed Bath and Beyond, this palette is just awesome. 
It was $9.79 plus I had a 20% off coupon,  so this palette was very affordable.
     A large eyeshadow palette at the drugstore?!  And still at an awesome price?!  This thing just blew me away.
     The quality of the shadows, the variety of textures, finishes, and colors... this palette is a masterpiece.  Maybelline,  I am impressed.
     Now first if all,  yes,  I would recommend this palette.  Now let's move on to the shadows themselves...

1 -  this shadow is a light pinky white with golden shimmer.  It is beautiful and a great all over lid shade,  inner corner highlight,  or just a shadow to place on the inner section of the lid.  It has a pretty iridescence to it that I am loving.

2 - this is a light taupe that has a bit of a satin finish, but is overall pretty matte.  It's a great crease or blending shade for a light daytime look. 

3 - this is a creamy beige that would be light enough to use as a brow bone highlight for many skin tones. It is totally matte and very pigmented,  especially for such a light color.  It can be somewhat powder-y, but it's nothing crazy. 

4 - this is a beautiful satin-shimmer chocolate brown.  A very traditional color in most neutral palettes, but this one has a wonderful buttery texture and excellent pigmentation.  It doesn't have chunky glitter,  but a nice golden sheen instead. 

5 - this is a medium cool toned taupe-brown.  It will be a great smokey eye blending color.  I really love a good cool toned matte brown for blending.  

6 - this is a dark  neutral brown, it's not too cool and not to warm either. 

7 - this is a warm golden brown similar to shadow number 4, but it is not nearly as dark.  It also has more neutrality to it than number 4, it doesn't come off as golden. 

8 - this is a medium warm brown which is matte and makes a good blending shadow. 

9 - this golden is lighter than it looks in the pan.  It is not as if the shade is not pigmented,  items simply a light gold,  not an intense golden color.  It makes for neutral eye look,  not pushing it over the top by being too stark and golden. 

10 - this is a dark brown with almost deep plum shimmer. Very pretty. 

11 - this is shimmery pinky cream that actually doesn't have too much sparkle, so if you're up to it,  you could use it as brow bone highlight because it is a tad lighter than number 1.

12 - finally the last shade is a matte black.  It's not an intense deep black,  but I actually find that to be a good thing.  It's more if a charcoal. This makes it more wearable and you are less likely to go overboard or end up with a darker look than you were anticipating. 

I love this palette because it includes warm and cool tones, mattes and shimmers,  lights and darks. It's just awesome and I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks for reading!
