Some time ago I got for review Feline Instict palette in Gold Edition from Sephora Collection. Its cost is €19,90. It comes in two color editions: dark and gold. It has very solid metal packaging with a nice feline design. In the palette, names/numbers of colors are not written. They were written on a piece of paper that was in a box. A nice fact about this palette is a sponge added inside the palette next to the shadows, which is used to wipe the brush between using different colors of eyeshadows. It is very easy to take it out, to wash it so this is a hygienic solution.
As always I prefer to play with eyeshadow palette a few times before giving You my opinion. There are so many different eyeshadow formulas, and “different” does not mean “inferior”. So sometimes you have to devote some time to learn how to work with a given formula to determine if they are good or not.
So I did with this palette. At the first use, I had a problem with mats. They did not blend very easily and had a tendency to be patchy. I tried to apply it on different bases and in a different order but the problem always remains the same. I mean… You can work them to look perfect but it takes time. The sparkling eyeshadows are kind of metallics loaded with mini glitter. They are very pretty and the quality is completely adequate for the price.
I love the color range of this palette. There are 12 colors (5 mattes and 7 metallics), mostly warm with 1 cold exception and 2 neutrals (the 3 metallics in the right corner). I would maybe add 1 more middle dark matte shade instead of one of metallics to keep a better balance and to give this palette a little bit more possibilities.
The brush added to this palette is actually really good! I did a few makeups using this brush and I have nothing to complain. That’s a big plus ➕ for this palette because usually the applicators that they add in palettes are like… You know what.
