I really, really wanted to love this palette; I love greens on my eyes and I loved the luxurious feel of the palette. Unfortunately, for me, that was where the let-down started. I swatched the shadows and was disappointed; none of them had the pigmentation I was anticipating and compared to the gorgeous shades in the pans, you can see the swatches below are a bit of a wash-out. The Prime shade is quite pretty but the colour payoff was rubbish, taking four layers to achieve this swatch. The Enhance and Smoke shades were mediocre; the pigmentation can be built up (the swatches are three layers), but that's not what I want from shadows in this price-range, and I did experience a fair bit of fall-out along the way. The Pop shade is probably the best of the bunch, with this swatch only taking two layers(!) - again, though, there was a fair bit of fall-out, and somehow the shadow just isn't as striking as it is in the pan.
All in all, I'm so grateful that I've been able to try this palette, but I can't say I'm in a huge hurry to buy any more. Yes, it's gorgeous to look at, but that's not what I want my make-up for! I'm pretty sure this must just be a slightly iffy palette (the review of 'The Rebel' on Temptalia is all praise!) but even so, I can't help feeling let-down. Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury's Luxury Palettes? How was your experience? I'd love to hear if you've had any similar problems!
[I received this palette as a giveaway prize; however, all opinions are 100% honest.]
