I thought the colors looked light when I bought this palette and was worried about how it would look with my olive skin tone. I was also weary of the smoke color because it appeared super light. I’m so glad so say I completely misjudged this palette. Like all CT products, it’s amaxing. It goes on well, it’s pigmented, and blends well. This is great for every day wear. If you are looking for a super Smokey eye, this is not going to be the right palette for you.
