Lower your expectations
The colors really are pretty! But don’t expect instant high pigment pay off right away. It’s exactly as described: “gentle”. It will build and it will apply wet or dry. The shimmers are natural. They are not beaming. The mattes are blendable. Overall it looks very natural. Color lasts all day. The colors in the Pretty palette are similar to Em Cosmetics original eye shadow palette but take a little time to build up.
Be patient, enjoy the experience.
