I think it is because Sephora wants to try something new. All of Sephora's palettes in the past have all came with brushes, but not this one which is the latest.

Absolutely! I have very fair skin and have red hair and I use this ALL the time! Ask the consultant to suggest a few combos(I find the turquoise and purple with a white highlight are GREAT for night). For a day look I like the grays or browns, and I've used the greens as well. Don't be afraid to play around with the colors, too. Even some of the ones that are darker work quite well depending on how much you apply! Even the blushes are perfect... I was worried I would look scary, but even the deepest one is GREAT!

If you are a "spring" sort of color woman, I think that 3 of the 5 are SUPER bold/bright/dark. However, I am blonde with cool-fair-porcelain skin, and I love it. If you are used to wearing beige, pastel, etc: the Clubbing in Tokyo and Shopping in Milan are all great, but many of the colors in the other palettes may or may not work for you. So far my fav is Coffee in New York.

It says on the back of the palette (word for word):

It may be better for some if it came with brushes, however, they would have to be very "cheap" brushes to make it affordable, and many would simply throw them out as we use our own (carefully collected) brushes. If it came with "good" brushes it would be expensive as someone has to pay for those brushes. Thank you Sephora for offering products without brushes so we only pay for what we will use. And - a young woman new to makeup should start with good brushes, even if just one at a time.

Hi,

I assume it doesn't come with brushes to keep the manufacturing costs down which would have been passed on to the consumers. Also, some people like their own brushes. Some of the items in the kit can be applied with clean fingers. I'm glad to buy a product at a lower cost and use my own brushes (or fingers). I mainly use my fingers for the products in this case.

Hope this helps.

yes, but when you combine them with urban decay's cream eyeshadow base it takes them to a whole new level! Some are matte, some have shimmer and some have serious sparkle good for the nighttime.

the blushes are alright, a bit sheer, of course except for the really red one but i think it really depends on your skintone. Because I have a medium shade - so some of the blushes don't show up on me and I'll just use those as a highlight. The one that gives me a natural flush is the middle rosey colored one. hope this helps :)

In each palette there is a total of 10 shadows, 2 lip glosses and 1 blush.

In the first palette there are 2 glittery eyeshadows, 1 of them is black with silver glitter and the second one is almost like a charcoal color with silver glitter in it.

In the second palette there are 3 glittery eyeshadows, 1 of them is bronze with glitter, the second is taupe with glitter and the last is almost like a chocolate color with glitter.

In the third palette there are 2 glittery eyeshadows, both of them are shades of pink, 1 is lighter pink and 1 is a little bit darker, but not a dark pink.

In the fourth palette there are 2 glittery eyeshadows, both of them are green shades, 1 is like a Kelly green with glitter and the second one is almost like a forest green with glitter.

The last palette there are no glittery eyeshadows.

I hope this answers your question!

No, the majority of them are matte or satin. All palettes have some form of glittery eyeshadow and it's not over-the-top. I would recommend using them in the evening as opposed to daytime OR as an eyeliner! :) Have fun with it! I did!

Question
looks/suggestions from the experts w/these colors?
Sometimes on the Sephora palettes, I get a card or a booklet with information on ideas on how to use the palette. This did not come with one, but there are so many colors in the eye make up, though I am an experienced "make-up-er", I wasn't exactly sure where to start. They don't seem to have much of an arrangement, except that on 3 or 4 of the 5, the darkest/most pigmented color is in the upper left corner, and the lightest/least in the lower right. Is there somewhere online, or did someone pick up a pamphlet with some ideas specifically from this palette/color set?

Hi,

There's no "shoulds" with this palette. It's fun to play with. Don't feel confined by using just the shades in one palette, but mix and match as desired. It's nice to have so many shades to experiment with. I've had fun layering different shades together and combining blushes to create individualized shades for me.

Play with it and have fun.

If you are experienced, it shouldn't be any trouble for you to figure this out on your own. Just take a light color over your whole lid or just the top, a medium one in the same hue, or in the color your wearing and for daytime put this in the crease, for night time use it to cover your lower lid. Then take a darker shade of the last color you picked and do your crease. With the right brush you can also line your lids with it.

The lightest shades goes on the entire lid. Then take the second to darkest color and using a skinny slanted eye liner brush apply eye shadow to the crease of your eye. Using a rounded eye shadow brush lend it all together. Then use the darkest color and apply to the outer corner of your eyes and along eyelashes and smudge it slightly.
