Review - Sephora Colorista Custom Makeup Palette (Mother's Day Gifts)

Hi girls!

I got this palette over a month ago as a gift from my boyfriend and I wanned to try it out thoroughly before I could give you my honest opinion about it.

What Sephora claims:
"The Colorista palette gives you a spectacular range of colors, including a balanced mix of wearable nudes, stylish runway-inspired shades, and bold colors. When at home, keep the sleek black case nearby for exactly the right hue when you need it. For your purse, choose eight of your favorite colors and pop them into the customizable compact. Made with quality ingredients, each eye shadow is highly pigmented; the blushes and bronzes blend easily."

What I LOVE about this palette:

- It comes with a mini-palette which comes in very handy for traveling or just carrying around in your bag;
- Both palettes come with a very good mirror;
- Variety of colors and textures - a lot of nudes, greens, purples, blues, greys / shimmery, matte etc.;
- Complete makeup with just one palette (you have 40 eye shadows, 5 cream eyeliners, 15 lipglosses, 4 blushes and 2 bronzers );
- Almost all the eye shadows are highly pigmented and easy to blend (the darker ones are super pigmented);
- The eye shadows are pretty long-lasting even without a primer (i have slightly oily lids and I've used them on hot summer days);

What I DON'T LIKE about this palette:

- Some of the eye shadows are very sheer;
- The eyeliners are very easy to apply (creamy) but not very pigmented and they wear off very easy - which makes them very bad bases for your eye shadows as well as for wearing them just on your lash line;
- The lipglosses  are pretty sheer and somewhat sticky;
- The "gold" in the palette has a lot of silver flecks in it and it's very hard to apply;
- It only has 2 (amazing though) matte blushes (pink and something like a "brick" brown-reddish color), the rest of them are VERY shimmery with a lot of gold sparkles in them;
- Because the blushes are so narrow it's very hard to only grab one color on your brush;
- You can't apply those lipglosses with your fingers because they get ruined  so u have to use a brush;

Overall I would probably give it an 8.5 out of 10.

Hope you enjoyed this!
