Eight neutral eyeshadows housed in a single, travel-friendly palette, all for $12. Sounds like a steal, right? Meet the Sephora Collection VIP Pass Eyeshadow Palette ($12 CAD).
The Packaging: Gold, envelope-shaped, cardboard packaging a little larger than my hand. By my terms, it's fun size (i.e. good for travel, perfect for tossing into your purse). The only things it's missing is a mirror and some space for a little brush or sponge-tip applicator, perhaps.
The Product: The palette includes 8 shadows in varying iridescent and matte finishes. The taupe grey and the black are matte, the rest have varying degrees of shimmer. Pigmentation and blend-ability is good, albeit a touch chalky. The top row contains soft browns, while the bottom shades are more smokey. Although the 8 neutrals aren't entirely unique, they're a great combination of shades to create a day look. The addition of a matte blending shade and a matte highlighting shade to this palette would make this palette even more versatile.
