What's important to note about these palettes is that the size is very deceiving. It's a nice way to try an array of coordinated colors and it's travel-friendly as well. Very travel-friendly one might say, as the size of each eyeshadow is about that of a penny. Scroll back up to the first picture and notice the size it is compared to the lipstick. This palette is palm-sized. You have been warned! Priced at $40 with a value of $53.

While the larger palettes are a great value and include full-sized eyeshadows, it's important to note that the pans are actually glued to the palette. That's a big let down as one would assume you could easily mix and match shades from all the palettes or even add some of your own. That also means if a shade runs out you won't be able to just pop a replacement pan. However, the overall price makes each shadow less than $6 so no need to get the Makeup Geek dupe when you can just get the original for less. So if you don't mind the depotting process then you can still customize these eyeshadows any way you like but you would have to purchase an empty palette, which still costs less than purchasing these eyeshadows separately. The retail value of these palettes is $160 ($150 for the eyeshadow pans, $10 empty palette) so you actually save $75.

These palettes are now available for purchase at Mac, Macy's and Nordstrom (full international launch in April but the larger palettes are available at Selfridges). They are permanent so no need to rush but I would get the Nordstrom exclusive palette sooner than later if I were you since it is limited edition.

Happy Hunting!
