The palette is inspired by the elements like Air, Earth, Fire and Water shades that includes 19 new multidimensional pigments that includes bright mattes, holographic shimmers and molten metallics. The shades are more on the bolder side but still very wearable. I’m not a huge fan of gem shades but I found the shades really perform well. Pigment is highly intense and with a very smooth finish. The shades layer beautifully together and you can create many different looks with this palette. The compact itself ultra sleek-looking, and travel friendly.

The shades are smooth and feels silky and velvety, especially the shimmery and metallic ones. The staying power is quite amazing and the shades does flake nor fades. The shimmers are my favorite, the texture and finish is beautiful. Although I don’t wear bright shimmery shades but I actually loved these sparkly shades. I haven’t noticed any fall outs when I applied on the lids using a fluffy brush especially if you have a nice eyeshadow primer on – You can wear it dry or wet for more intense finish. The palette is detailed with crystal like case and orb inspired compact that gets into your bag easily. It comes in a large stand mirror for easy application.
