Amuse 96 Eyeshadow Kit - Review

In case you missed any of the swatches from this palette:

Now that you have had a chance to see the swatches, it's time to share just what I think of this palette!

Overall I like it a good bit. I wish some of the colors were more pigmented. There are some gems that are very well pigmented, but overall the colors are somewhat subdued. I would have liked to see more purples, and inclusion of good, solid primary colors would have been great. But overall not bad. The colors are all smooth and silky and blend well. Some of them are soft enough that fallout is a big problem if you are not very careful.

I think there's a decent balance of neutrals and more colorful shades, as well as a pretty good balance of warm and cool shades. They are ALL shimmery though - if you're looking for mattes or a combination of mattes and shimmers then pass on this. Some colors have more shimmer than others, there are a few that are almost pearl finish but they definitely do still have shimmer.

If you are looking for a palette filled with vivid, highly pigmented colors then this palette is NOT for you. However if you tend to prefer softer looks and want to incorporate a little color then this might be a good option.
