How it feels/smells/looks

You know you’re about to be impressed when the packaging features a hologram. Once you’ve finished marvelling at the moving imagery, the two base shades and six eye shadows on offer instantly take the spotlight. The palette perfectly covers a colour spectrum attune to its ‘Punked’ theme without seeming overstated or gimmicky.

Why I like it

Whether you’re looking for bright and warm shades or enviable smoky eyes, this palette provides variety in spades. The colours are wonderfully pigmented and won’t take painstaking effort to blend. Throw this product in your bag and you’re good to go for a quick, effective makeover at home or on the road.

Areas for improvement

To find something here would just be nit-picking. For colours that last with effortless blending, this product is your Holy Grail.
