I had a blue million issues getting this post up. I've been trying for a while, but something was irking me about the pictures - the coloring. Look at the image above. It's like grey and yellow. No matter what I did, I couldn't get a picture of these two together without funky lighting. I finally gave up. The colors of the shadows in these palettes are pretty accurate, and I guess that's all that matters!
Another issue I had was mislabeling the pictures. I kept calling Smoke and Melrose "Smoke and Mirrors." I did this twice. It was starting to look like this post was cursed!! I redid these photos 3 times. Have you guys ever had this issue? *sigh* Anyway, these shadows are pigmented well, but they aren't the best, if you know what I mean. Some of the lighter colors get lost without a lot of layers. But those could be good for bases or just a subtle hint of color.

Very neutral. I do like the colors, and I can see myself using this palette a lot. I have found these sticking around in various places. These will be in a special display with two other palettes. The other two palettes, I don't know their names, just didn't catch my eye.
**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these products myself or was given it as a gift.
