I received this palette from Born Pretty Store and I was super excited to try it for several reasons. First of all, my eyes water like crazy so waterproof makeup is a must for me. Another reason is because I love shimmery eye shadow and this little palette is full of glittery goodness. Not to mention it's compact so perfect for travel. It's $4.99 for a 12 shadow palette so it's also a total bargain.
The pros of this palette are that the shadows are indeed waterproof, as tested on my hand, with no primer used. However, the glitter in the shadow does wipe off with water so you're left with matte color, which is kind of a bummer if you're intent on the shimmer sticking around, but nice if you're looking for lasting color. Results may be better with an actual primer being used. I also love the sleek packaging and the color range. The colors are neutral enough for everyday use, but unique enough with the shimmer for special occasions.
The cons are that the top row of shadows are incredibly sheer. They're nice if you want a glittery finish over a similar color, but as far as using those colors on their own you'll get very little color payoff. The bottom row of colors are a lot more pigmented but still semi patchy. If you use a primer first you'd probably be a lot better off.
Overall it's a fun little palette but I probably would only use it when I want to really punch up the sparkle factor. It's still a bargain at $4.99. You can find it on the Born Pretty website here. Mine is in the shade 1916-05.
