Price & Purchase Process & Packaging:

I purchased these palettes all from Love Love Beauty's Website and each palette was purchased on sale and with a coupon. Two of the palettes were $35, and the other was $40. Other reviews state that the price is too high and unreasonable, but this reviewer is of the opposite opinion citing the unique color stories and intrinsic quality of each palette as sufficient reason for a more than fair price point. By comparison, Huda Beauty's Obsession Palettes range from $27-$29 dollars, and while there is a tad more product and and I do enjoy those palettes, these particular palettes are of even more superior quality, thereby justifying the price. 

I received these palettes in excellent condition, packaged well, and in a reasonable time frame.

Pigmentation & Color Payoff & Performance:

Each palette has a very unique, yet specific, non monochromatic, singular color story theme. Does that make sense? That's to say, each palette is not necessarily monochromatic, however, the palette's maintain a theme that is cohesive built on shades that share similarities that are not necessarily in the same color family. Each palette maintains the well-known quality of the brand with very different and ingenious color stories that address a wide variety of color themes. Although all the palettes are quite beautiful, by far my favorite is the "Something Gorgeous" Palette. The different pink & purple shades cooperate nicely with one another and create looks that are stunningly unique and breathtaking when applied to the eyes. Each shadow, whether matte or metallic, blends effortlessly and with ease and creating looks that are beautifully appropriate for work or other events.

Overall Product Presentation:

I am a very big fan of smaller 9 pan palettes. I think while it is small and compact, I think it still allows for one to create a myriad of looks that are appropriate for a myriad of settings and occasions
Each palette allows for the ability to create wearable everyday looks, glammed up and event oriented looks, as well as soft glam looks, all based in highly pigmented color rich shades that complement each other with gorgeous significance. While my job as a reviewer is to remain objective, there is no need for me to fabricate anything about this brand or their products. These palettes are just top notch

Rating: 10/10
