The palettes are pretty nicely made and don’t feel cheap to me. They are much smaller than I imagined though. Each palette fit comfortably in the palm of my hand. Because they’re so tiny they can feel a bit bulky but I still think they’re ideal for travel. I was was pretty impressed with the eyeshadow palettes. Everything swatched pretty well and had good color payoff. Some of the veluxe pearls felt a little dry but I’d have to actually use them beyond swatching to really comment on how it’ll affect the wear. I was a little disappointed with the lip palettes though. I would definitely prefer a bigger palette because lipstick can get messy. It would have been nice to have a bit more room. I also would have loved a six pan palette like the ones they offer in the professional line. I would have loved to add these to my kit but for almost $30 I’d be better off getting the pro version.

I tried swatching the face palettes but in true MAC fashion neither worked well with my skin tone. The iridescent powders were really pretty and the coral blush should work well but the beauty powders and the pink blush were a big let down. I wouldn’t recommend them at all if you’re darker than NC/NW 30. The collection doesn’t really impress me but I do think there are a few gems worth checking out. Head to your local counters and stores next Thursday to see for yourself!
