The palette comes accompanied by a very, very good quality mini brush, in fact the best I've seen in an eyeshadow palette, they're usually awful to say the least. Cruelty-free bristles, I can see myself taking it out of the palette and using it on a daily basis that's how good the brush is. A mini eyeliner pencil is also included, which is quite handy because literally everything you need for a smokey eye look (well, minus mascara) is in the kit.
The two lighter shades are cream formulas, the 'Ice White Base' is very shimmery (can also be used as a highlighter in my opinion), and the light grey one (Silver Highlighter) is pure glitter, so, so lovely if that's the look you're going for. The dark grey eyeshadow ('Marble Grey') is shimmery with satin finish and the black one ('Charcoal Black') has a matte finish (love :)). And here's a tutorial for a basic evening, smoky eye look:
Step 1: - Start by applying the included eyeliner pencil all over the eyelid, thereby creating a solid base for the eyeshadows to come, and also to add depth to the look
Step 2: - Take a blending brush and blend out the edges of the eyeliner
Step 3: - Using the enclosed mini brush, apply 'Marble Grey' eyeshadow all over the lid and on the lower lash line
Step 4: - Using the same enclosed brush, apply 'Charcoal Black' into the crease and on the outer corner of the eye ('V' shape) and blend (with a blending brush) inwards and outwards, to smooth any harsh lines & edges
Step 5: - Apply 'Ice White' on the inner corner of the eye and brow bone
Step 6: - Now take some 'Silver Highlighter' on the brush and apply on the upper lid, while stopping at the outside corners & eye socket, just enough to create a more luminous eye lid
Step 7: - Mascara....and you're done!
The quality of the eyeshadows are well worth the spend in my opinion. The brush is amazing, the formulas are outstanding, even the mini eyeliner pencil is great! I am thinking about getting the brown palette as well. since that looks even more amazing and much more my style. Overall, really impressed! Oh, and I also bought a fabulous red lip pencil on the night, which I'm dying to show you guys :)...
