Shadows are swatched left to right exactly in the order they are in the palette. Build up was surprisingly easy and smooth. I have yet to use this palette in a look but I can't wait to use it. The only matte shadows I have are my Inglots and most palettes come with a black. It's nice having some new colors to add to my matte collection. Were you able to get this palette? What are your thoughts? To get off topic for a bit, I love Disney! My old tv has a built in VCR player so I'm watching 101 Dalmations. I have found my spirit animal, lol. Rolly, the chubby pup who's forever hungry! What's your favorite Disney movie? Mine is a tie, Beauty and the Beast and Alice in Wonderland! Have a great night Blogerettes.
