I have been playing and experimenting for a few weeks to a get a feel for the new colors. It took me forever to get this review up, but here it is finally!

Each swatch consist of about three strokes of shadow applied to my bare skin without any primer or base. The photo was taken in natural lighting. Here’s my take on each shade.
Acidberry- This electric green shade with a slight shimmer was the color I really didn’t care for before receiving the palette. However, after trying it, it has became one of my favorite colors. The consistency is great and the shade is very pigmented. It looks awesome with a primer and is a sizzling color for summer.
Velocity- This shade kind of reminds me of a matte version of Royal Sugar. The color blends pretty good and is ok in the level of intensity once applied. In my opinion, it’s nothing special.
2am- Initially I was excited for this color.It reminds me of a lighter version of poison plum, so I thought it would be a good color to smoke it out with. After using the color, I wasn’t crazy about it. It doesn’t blend as well as I would like and it isn’t very pigmented. I think with some more experimenting, I can learn to incorporate it into my looks more often.
Mochi- I was sure I was going to hate this color. But to my surprise, it’s hands down my favorite color from the palette! It’s super pigmented, sparkly and looks superb with just black eyeliner and mascara. This is officially my go-to shade for the summer.
|This is a simple Look I created using 2am and Mochi as a liner. Very easy to do while creating a statement look.|
