This brand is such a silent killer - reasonably priced, high quality, professional, portable cosmetics and empty palettes. Fantastic for a new makeup artist, or for someone like me that needs the space in my kit! All my lipsticks are sitting in custom 20-well palettes - no more tubes! This palette was my first from Yaby, it was sent to me as a gift by the line's creator to try (not review, necessarily). Liz is such a fantastic person and really listens to pro feedback to make her products the best. And this "Best of Both Worlds" is my best little palette to grab if I need a bunch of colors in shimmers and mattes. The payoff is good, some are better than others, but overall the quality is stellar. I've had it for a couple years and haven't needed to refill a single shade. So the palette pans are SMALL - but in all honesty, what makeup artist uses a hot pink shadow 400 times? It's the perfect size. Replacement colors are only a couple bucks if you happen to run out of a shade, so you can keep the same palette literally forever. Check out the Yaby site, you won't be disappointed!
Great pigmentation. very creamy, gorgeous color. Love the compact palette size -- easy to fit in your kit with plenty of selection. Buildable, easy to blend and lay color right on top of the next. Love using for editorial shoots. Color that really packs a punch!
I got this palette awhile back when I saw it in every working make-up artists kit. I decided I too should find out why everyone loves it so much. Starting with things that are basic when exploring a new line, the neutral palette seemed like a great start. Every eyeshadow in this palette is heavily pigmented, but not only do they blend beautifully together, they work well with other shadows. The palette came in a wide variety of textures, frost, matte etc. The pre-selected shades are variety of gold, cool browns, warm browns, rust, frosted beiges, cool blues and warm blues. They also worked well wet or dry which is a plus for me. The other amazing thing is the eyeshadows do pop out of the case and can be re-organized with other palettes that have a magnetic base. It takes some careful pulling and tugging, but does come out. I love it so much, I think you will too!
