 I was shocked when I got this in the mail because I had not placed a Sephora order around the time this came in.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this in the box.  I love the whole packaging of this palette  from the box in comes in , too the sleek slim design of the palette and the huge mirror.

Sephora and Pantone Universe have teamed up again to this collection  "Shades of Nature Eyeshadow Palette"  and a brush set too, which I don't have.

I am actually pretty happy with this palette, most of the colors are good  but there are some  that are way too chalky , and some not very pigmented.

So wear an eye primer under these :)

Overall the good out weighs the bad with this palette in my opinion.  My only issue is with the actual palette, it does not snap shut it just lays flat which would be a big problem If you want to travel with this.

I will just keep mine in the box it came in and probably would not travel with this , I guess I could taped it shut. LOL

This is a Limited Edition palette so If you like it, you have to act soon.

 I have heard Sephora & Pantone Universe are going to keep this palettes coming with different colors, which is pretty cool.

I am hoping they will improve the formulation of the shadows in general. 

Retail on this is $55.00 and is available on Sephora.com and will hitting the stores in June.

Bottom Line : You might want to check this out in person  before jumping into it.
