Infinitely luminous.  Sensationally smooth.  All-in-one 6 shadow palette to brighten eyes. Indulge in a limited-edition compact with shades of golden copper and brown mixed with aquatic teal. Inspired by the warmth of the sun and colors of mosaic tiles at the bottom of a pool, this new versatile, all-in-one palette conveniently creates a full eye look for day or night.

Purchased by me


All these shades do have some micro-glitter/shimmer but not over-the-top. They have great color payoff and very little fallout. Shades are:

  • coral/apricot
  • soft aqua–this is the least pigmented but still provided plenty of color over a primer
  • beautiful deep blue that looks like the bottom of a pool
  • lovely creamy beige
  • copper peach
  • deep chocolate brown with sparkle

For this eye look I used the cream shade on the brow bone, apricot shade on the lid, the chocolate brown in the crease and to line the upper eye lid and the bright blue to line the lower lash line.
