I receives a sample size of this product. I like it better than I thought I would. It offers a subtle hint of color on my already brown skin. I notice that my skin looks more even and I honestly don't notice the shimmer. I just may invest in the full size product.
I like this palette. The pigmentation is nice and it shows up well on my brown skin. I typically only find myself reaching for this palette when I am traveling as it is so compact. I've only used the shadows over the shadow insurance primer so the staying power is excellent on my oily eyelids.
Maybe I have fat cheeks but I could not for the life of me get the blush to go on evenly with this tiny brush. It looks like I put the blush in one spot. The brush is rounded so that makes it worse. I would rather use a bigger brush and I get a better application for me blush.
This is the first and only primer I have tried so far. It leaves the skin silky smooth. Sometimes I use it without makeup because I love the way it makes my skin feel. My makeup does glide/stay on longer with the primer. It's a tiny bottle though but for $6 I guess that's just how it goes.
