Makeup Revolution’s Maxi Reloaded Palette in Big Shot

This is my least-favorite of the Maxi Reloaded palettes that I own. (I own the first five; I am not going to buy the Mars and Earth ones that are $25 per instead of $18 per. It’s not just the price; it’s the marbled eyeshadows and overall colorway in both of them.) The first and second columns’ worth of colors are all super pale, super light, and thus don’t apply well and have almost zero pigmentation. The colors on the right side of the palette are well pigmented, and there are a few lovely shades that I’m glad to have; but it’s still not a palette that I’ll use most of. (I may harvest the colors that I like and keep them on a magnetic palette. There are that few of them. Or maybe I’ll keep them on the same mag-palette with the usable shades from the pink-and-purple Colour Book, because half of those colors aren’t things that I’d like to keep around, either.)
