I had been searching for a make up palette that will have all the basic essential colors required to create feminine looks.When i finally got this palette from Bornprettystore.com , i was so excited.i couldn't wait to try it out.The first thing i noticed was how properly it was packed-wrapped multiple times in a spongy material (not the usual bubble wrapped). Obviously everything was intact. . so that's a plus plus point. Because i find it very depressing when i order any cosmetics and they arrive broken :(
ABOUT BORN PRETTY-
they are hong kong based online company. they sell the cutest nail art products and cosmetics too including colored contact lenses. (i'm thinking of getting one for myself soon). they also have a range of only Hello kitty products (which is to die for since i'm a huge hello kitty fan :P)
SHIPPING- they give free shipping worldwide.
the product reached me in 15 days. They use registered air mail but there is no tracking id so it gets troublesome if the custom wala decides to sneak it with them :(.
WHAT I GOT- 16 Color Shimmer Eyeshadow Makeup Eye Shadow Palette #1 . if you're a beginner and looking for a palette to experiment with then this is the right one for you. It has all the colors you need- black, green, blue,purple,pink,yellow,orange and their varients. What more can you ask for?

SHADES- there are 16 shades. All have shimmers so if you're not a big fan of shimmer then you should avoid this.
as for me i find shimmers feminine plus it has all the colors so i'm glad i got this :)
PIGMENTATION- they are moderately pigmented. The most pigmented ones are the black,purple and bright pink in the second row.
TEXTURE- though this palette has shimmers , the texture is smooth and there is no gritty feeling when applied.
STAYING POWER- they stayed on my eyelids for 5-6 hours after which the colors fade off evenly but the shimmers linger . They are not waterproof.
APPLICATOR- It comes witha single applicator. i wish it came with a brush instead .
