KATE Colorcious Diamond BK-1

Trying out Kate eyeshadows for the first time. Picked it up for $17 on while I was restocking my skincare.

I'm not going to swatch these. It doesn't look right on my arm skin but they apply perfectly fine on my eyes. They are not super pigmented but they are very smooth and easy to use.  I like the shine and soft definition from this palette which is great for a quick and easy day look.  I'm not sure if it can be used for a dramatic black smokey eye on it's own because of how soft it looks layered.  So far I like it.  Flattering colours and textures, doesn't require primer, non- irritating, minimum fall out and blends easily.  I might buy more shades in the future.

Update with swatches

middle shades in focus
white shade in focus
greyish taupe and blackish shade in focus
I hope they help anyone still on the fence with this palette.

The texture is very nice for the price. Remember how bad Shiseido color bar swatched on my skin? Well in general my skin is shit for swatches as you can see from this other post on SUQQU), I like this a lot more than Lunasol e/s that I have purchased in the past and they apply much better than most of the Addiction shadows that I have tried as well.
