I have really sensitive skin, and the eyeshadows are amazing! I'm sure it will be good for you, it just depends on how soft the brush you're using is :)

the package says made in China, I'm assuming that refers to the shadow and not just the palette itself.

I'm not sure where it's made but I do know I have very sensitive skin, I can't even use most face washes without getting red and breaking out. But this eye palatte works great with sensitive skin, and if you're worried use an oil free eye shadow primer first!

These stay on dry, I own one and have been using it for a month now and have not have to use it wet. The power stay is long, pigmented and definit neutral. Moonshadow to me were sort of cakey hard when I was trying it out and the Instinct one seems to glide on nicely and color picked up nicely so I purchased it and amaze how much quality it was plus the colors coordinations. Worth it.

I purchased this last night and was very disappointed to read on the back that it was made in China. I also purchased the retractable eyeliner that said made in Germany and didn't think to look at the eye shadow. I'm contemplating returning the eye shadow.

Question
Do these shadows still have good color payoff when used dry?
I already own the Sephora moonshadow palette which is amazing when used wet but doesn't seem to be made to use dry. Is this one the same way or do the shadows go on dry and look like the color that you see in the palette?

With the proper brushes and UDPP I get great color payoff and excellent blending using them dry - and they last all day.

answer 5
I don't know if I got a bad batch or what, but I've found the dry colour payoff pretty poor with some colours (mostly the lighter/medium colours and the dark matte colours). I use UDPP as my primer. Some of the dark glittery colours have really good colour payoff, but I find they blend poorly, and I'm going to be returning my palette today.

I have never tried it wet. Moreover, I didn't read if it does or tried it. The colors actually look better on than when viewed online and in hand. I suggest testing it on hand or if you have time to play with it during a non-event.

These are designed to be used either wet or dry. I use them mostly dry unless I want to amp it up with a smoky eye at night. I've found the colors to be extremely long lasting when I use a primer underneath.

This palette isn't baked, like the one you own. Baked eyeshadows don't have great color payoff unless you use them wet. This palette has great payoff dry. I used it today. Gorgeous palette. You won't be disappointed.

The colors range from softer to intense. So, one could go deeper in color or lighter. It goes on evenly, so if you want to add more it allows you to sweep more.

There are 3 eye shadows that are matte in this pallete- a very light cream color, a dark brown, and black. I wouldn't buy this if you only want matte eye shadows. I know the Stila In The Light pallete has only matte shadows, so maybe you could check that out.

answer 3
These are more of what you would call a satin finish. There are probably about 4-5 matte colors, but the rest have a little satin finish. However, the colors are intense, so it actually comes out much more reflective than they look.

Almost all of these shades are shimmer. The eye colour enhancing palettes by Smashbox (http://www.sephora.com/photo-op-eye-enhancing-palette-blue-eyes-P292405?skuId=1469543) have really nice matte shades. I use the one for blue eyes, but I think the shades would look nice with any eye colour. I hope that helps!

All but three of these shadows are shimmery (the light champagne, dusty brown and gunmetal grey are not shimmery - The last two are on the top and bottom of the right side of the pallette and the other is the top left color). Some colors more than others but nonetheless shimmery. You can try Urban Decay Naked pallets but those seem to be mostly shimmers too. Good luck.

The shadows in this set contain matte and shimmer shadows- For just matte shades you may want to do a search for "matte palette" or create your own with specifically chosen matte single shadows from our Sephora Collection.
