HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU... It has to be the most frustrating stuff to apply. I really think it needs the proper primer, I'm thinking something very creamy and for the pastels, a white base. I plan to invest in NYX's Jumbo Pencil in Milk, the rave of the beauty world.
I have to wonder, is my problem the brush I'm using? I really like Wet n Wild palettes! They make 3- and 8-pan palettes that are very cheap but very worth it. Pigmentation, soft. Their collections are nice too, aside from the Fergie collaboration (the palettes? DON'T BOTHER! So bad!).
These palettes were white instead of the usual black, with white flowers on the lower left and upper right corners. Pretty, right? These are cheaply packaged but really, it's drugstore makeup. You can't ask for a lot! I will say I have broken these eyeshadow before and if the palette drops from a counter, most likely you will have the issue of the palette popping open and the eyeshadow possibly breaking.
I agree with others: the colors are mismatched. I feel they're more mismatched on the right than the left. The left is at least shades of purple! None of the shades have names, they're just stamped with "Definer," "Crease," etc.

You're probably wondering how exactly I got my hands on this palette when I couldn't find it in store. I turned to eBay. I found the one with the most reasonable price of $15. These palettes only sell for $4.99 and these were sold out in the stores that were something like 10 minutes away. Not my best day, I admit. I don't usually go for this type of thing.
I highly recommend you check out Wet n Wild if you can. In the States, this shouldn't be a problem and I think Canada has Wet n Wild as well. You can always go online to look for Wet n Wild if it's not available where you live. I really prefer finding products that are available to anyone (or nearly available). This seems rather limited to me personally, because I know I have readers in Europe, Asia, South America, and Canada. I try my best though. I know what I like, what I want to review, etc and I'm always happy to check out a recommendation. If you have any, please let me know!
