Car Mela silky eyeshadow palette #8 swatches+review

Good morning! Are you guys having a good Monday? It's FREAKIN' cold here! I took the dog out this morning, and the ground was so frozen there was no mud (and our backyard has been a mudpit for months). Brrrr! Today I have an eyeshadow palette to share with you. It's an okay one - but kind of chalky. I have a fair amount of eyeshadow, and this one is by far the ones that crumbles the most. The one I have is the Car Mela eyeshadow palette #8, featuring a cream color, greens and a blue.

It's really very odd. The cream and greens are super shiny. I'm certain the shimmer particles border on Glitter Herpes territory. But the blue is as matte as matte can be...although it doesn't look like it in the case.

I was prepared for how....pigmented the shadows were. I mean, the arm swatch was a quickie, but still. Especially the cream-colored one. It is super pigmented - but it's also chalky. My eye look for this palette isn't very good. It was WAY over done and very overdramatic...
