I've had this little palette in my drawer for about six months and never actually had an opportunity to try it. I don't know why but I always thought it would be faster to just use separate products, it's not. I have to say I was quite surprised when my eye makeup was done in a few minutes, and it looked really nice too. I love the eyeshadows, not too sure about the brow shade though - I feel like the brown doesn't match my overall look. Or maybe it's because I'm so in love with Maybelline's brow pencil at the moment. The colours blend well with and without the primer, but last for much longer with the primer applied. Tweezers are really handy, especially when I'm out, I don't always carry tweezers around but with this palette in my bag I don't have to worry about it (I always need tweezers at weird times). I love the black eyeliner that comes with the set, it stays on surprisingly long even on the bottom lash line without smudging. I've seen people complaining about the eyeliner but it works for me so. The duo brush is alright, but I personally prefer long, proper brushes but this one works okay except it feels too small for me. I love the smokey eye look, but I would choose my Bourjois trio anyday over this palette. It is good and I will use it from time to time but I prefer to use separate products.
