Smoke Out

Quick Thoughts: Kinda hit and miss. Some of the colors need more packing on while others are more pigmented. Beautiful though!

Feelin' Blue?

Quick Thoughts: Again, kinda hit and miss but this palette has more pigmented shades that Smoke Out. It has some GORGEOUS blues in it.

Green With Envy

Quick Thoughts: Likely one of the most pigmented of the palettes. The greens in this one are stunning and pigmented. The two lightest neutrals, not so much.

Naturally Gorgeous

Quick Thoughts: Another one of the most pigmented, easy to wear palettes of the group. One color in particular is just crazy pigmented. I almost overdid my own swatch. I really like this one.

Pinking Of You

Quick Thoughts: My least favorite of the Top Ten Palettes. This one lacks pigmentation and differentiation between the shades. I sadly don't recommend this one for an adult. However, if you have a little one who wants to play in makeup, this would be an awesome choice.

Individual reviews and swatches coming soon!

Do you own these palettes? What are your thoughts on them?

  1. I have the Feelin Blue palette. I like it though the colors are very subtle and light on my skin. That may be because I didn't really pack it on or because of my olive undertones. On the plus side I like the color variation and the shadows are very light and don't make me feel as if I'm wearing a ton of makeup.

  2. I love it!

  3. omg...i DEF have to check 'em out!

  4. I heard great things on them
