I love philosophy products. It takes out my water proof eye make up. It does go on oily, but I immediately wipe it off. I wouldn't put on my eye makeup immediately afterward because it's oily at first. It serves its purpose and I like it.
I got this for my sister in law for charismas. When it came in I opened it to make sure it wasn't broken ( it was not) and when I opened it the colors are so beautiful the picture that they use to advertise does not do it justice at all. It's like opening up a box of magic. Lol Makeup lovers know what I'm feeling. I ordered another one for myself. So perfect. And super fast shipping less than a week.
I really want to love this product! I've been using it on my eyebrows and eyelashes for a few weeks now, and I PROMISE you, it seems that my eyebrows are getting thicker/fuller! Haven't noticed any difference in my eyelashes yet though. My only issue is that the serum is very thin/liquidy.....so when I try to gently brush it on above my eyelashes, it ends up seeping into my eyes and then burns my eyes. So the only change I'd like to see is for the fluid to be of a thicker consistency so it does not run into the eyes so easily. Hence, why I only give 4 stars.
Just like all the Balm powder products, these eye shadows are highly pigmented & blend smoothly. I find it difficult to get a complete eye look from just this palette however since most of the shadows are shimmery. I use it in conjunction with one of the Meet Matte Nude palettes to rev up my look for night time or special occasions. If you love shimmer & are ok with an entire shimmery eye look, this palette is your jam. You can get subtle daytime looks or very smoky looks from this palette. If you prefer all matte, probably best to skip this one. The shades range from light shimmery pinks to deep shimmery burgundy & plum. There is even a beautiful yellow & bronze. Nice combo of warm & cool, light & dark. If it had more midtone mattes it would be the perfect stand alone palette.
