The packaging is always simple when it comes to Kate products.  Although they are a drugstore brand, I find their packaging is a bit into a high-quality product. Well, you can't go wrong with black color, always exclusive. The eyeshadow palette comes in this plastic small rectangle size. Luckily, at the in front, there's see-through plastic packaging where you can see the eyeshadow without need to open it. 

Inside, there is no mirror but it is a nice size that is easy to travel with.

Color/ Pigmentation + texture:
The color obviously more into browns and semi-smokey, also great for every day. If you are more into shimmer shades, this palette suit you the most because there are 3 shimmers and 1 matte. For those who prefer matte color, I don't think you will like this palette but for those who like Korean or Japanese eyes makeup, you will like this. 

Now, the pigmentation. They are quite pigmented when I do the swatches but when applied on eyes, the pigmentation is in between. I like the gold shimmer color the most, nice to apply under eyes.

The shimmer color works perfectly fine but the matte somehow is a bit chalky. The texture is quite smooth and buttery, but it is slightly powdery and there's a lot of fallout, so beware. 

This shade is still gorgeous, just not a fan of the fallout.  Maybe if you wet the brush, might be more PRETTIER! or just don't use any brush, use FINGERS!

Let's create an eye makeup look using this palette. 
First, make sure you have a clean base and draw your eyebrow. Then, I use shade 'A' and apply all over the lid. First thing, what I liked about these shades is you can apply it alone. If you watch any Thai drama, mostly the actress will use these shades the most. Well, I watch Thai drama too but somehow I also study their eye makeup lol

Next, I use shade 'D' which is gold shimmer color and apply half of the eyelid because I'm going to apply dark shades at the outer eyelids which are shades 'B'

The last step is to apply a shimmery gold color at the tearduct area. Also, apply your favorite mascara and eyeliner and the eyes makeup is done. Simple and easy!

Lasting power:
The lasting power for these shade are so so.  Since the matte shades are already so sheer, the shadow already fading. The shimmery shade stay put just fine but these don’t have the best-lasting power.

They don't smell anything only smell like eyeshadow :P

- nice color
- great for natural makeup
- travel-friendly size packaging

- wish it was slightly more pigmented
- fallout


This wasn't the worst palette, it still is good in its own right but if the fallout could be improved, that would be nice.  This palette is definitely suitable for Asian skin tone and for Malaysian women with warm skin tone. But overall, I don’t find this palette to be anything too special.
