These eyeshadows’ formula is very typical for Pure Chromatics eyeshadows: very sheer with soft sparkles when dry, and vibrant with shimmery when wet. The pink shade contains scattered shimmers, while the rest contain a metallic finish.

Although I’m not usually a fan of pastels, I actually like this palette. However, I would’ve liked to see at least one darker shade. Amethyst is the smokiest of them all, but I’d still anchor it with a dark eyeliner underneath to provide definition. This isn’t the kind of palette that’s easy to wear all at once, but one sure can try. Challenge accepted! 😛
