WAHHH SO MANY COLORS~!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
That was my first reaction when I saw this massive cube of makeup. I got a coupon for being a Beauty Insider Member for 15 dollars off any 50 dollar purchase at Sephora and I thought: I HAVE TO USE THIS. Sephora never has sales and I'm a sucker for deals...especially deals on makeup! Call it an early Christmas for myself~
Sephora does one of these blockbusters each year. I've only been into makeup for a year but I've heard from people that Sephora is shrinking them each year and not decreasing the price. That's not cool but I'm pretty happy with the amount and variety of products in it. There's 148 different lovelies in the set with 3 luminizers, 6 eye top coats, 12 cream eyeliners, 64 eyeshadows, 6 lip top coats, 48 lip glosses, 6 lip, eye, and cheek creams and 3 blushes and a mirror too. That's a heck of a lot of stuff for 60 bucks! The quality of everything is pretty darn good; eyeshadows and lip glosses are all pigmented very well while blushes and luminizers give the perfect flush or highlight to my face. I have the smaller version of this that is shaped like a shopping bag and I was very impressed with that already; having this is like having a giant version of something I already love.
Although it's amazing it's not perfect. I would prefer more eye stuff and less lip glosses. I tend to wear lip glosses on the go and re-apply it the most often out of any makeup item. Since this cube is so big, it's hard to carry around with you and the plastic isn't exactly the sturdiest material. If it falls it's going to break! Portability is an issue and opening the box is a little inconvenient. You flip open the top and pull out the sides like stacked shelves that are attached to each other. It can be difficult to pull them out but it's not a major problem. I'd advise anyone who loves colorful makeup to try this out for sure. It's great for experimenting with color, learning how to apply your makeup better and seeing what works for you. It has neutral colors but for those of you who like to stick with neutrals only, you may not end up using all of it and are better off spending money on a different palette.
Final verdict is it's worth the money, it's an excellent makeup palette for beginners to seasoned experts. I love sitting in front of it and trying on all the pretty things and am absolutely sure you will too!
Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
