Here's another review from CosmoProf Las Vegas that I attended on July 9-11, 2017. I already reviewed Lechat in Fantasea and ella + mila Velvet Matte in X on the Beach. The first appointment I had was with Skinn.

I took this picture from my Instagram. She was kind enough to give us the whole collection that came out.
Within the new collection, there's two cream eyeshadows. For this post, I will review the one on the right.

Thoughts: When she was going through each product that came out, I was excited. This was the last product and it added cherry on top of products I was already excited about. This is something in my line of products I enjoy using. For that reason, it's the first product I grabbed to use in this brand.
Here's how it looks inside. It comes with a mirror and a brush.
Each eyeshadow comes in their own container.
Here's a closer look at the four eyeshadows.
Here's a closer look at one of the eyeshadows. This is the third one from the left.
Here's a closer look at the double-ended brush.
Here's a closer look at the eyeshadow side.
Here's a closer look at the eyeliner side.
Here's a swatch of the eyeshadows on my hand. The order matches the order from the palette left to right.

Now for looks I created...

Look #1:
I applied the third eyeshadow from the left on the lid, and blended it out with MAC eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick in Bitter Sweet on the lips.

Look #2:
I applied the first eyeshadow from the left on the lid, and blended it out with MAC eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Rose on the lips.

Look #3:
I applied Kate Eye Shadow in BR-1 on the eyes and lined with the fourth eyeshadow from the left.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Pasadena on the lips.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the products, each eyeshadows, and there are no scent whatsoever. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's so unique and I tend to gravitate towards that. I have never seen little containers of eyeshadows inside an eyeshadow palette. It's cute and I also like that the color of the containers matches the eyeshadows. Not only that, I think the company is pretty smart. The little containers protect the cream shadows from drying out. When you close the lid of the tiny containers, it's not exposed to air and makes the shadows last longer. Another thing I suggest is storing the palette upside down. It keeps the cream shadow more moist than when stored upright. I'm not too sure but it looks like each container you can take out and put back. I didn't try so I cannot 100% guarantee that. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick plastic, and there's no finger marks and scratches. It also makes a clicking noise when you close the lid of the palette. To open the palette, you need to push the button in the front. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It comes with a mirror and a brush. You don't need anything more. The palette is light and the brush is extremely useful. One end of the brush is for using as an eyeshadow and the other end as an eyeliner. I used both ends, and they're well-made and works really well. Third, the consistency is creamy. I found the first and the third from the left more creamier than the other two eyeshadows. With that said, it was easy to use. The first time I tried using the shadows I used my fingers. It left a nice, light color. I think it'll be great for Asian makeup style where the color leaves a tint of color on the lids. For myself, I like the American style makeup where the color is pigmented on the lids. It works better with the brush. Ever since then, I only use the brush it came with even lining my eyes. With that said, I recommend doing one eye at a time. Once the shadows dry, it will not budge. It's best to apply and blend while it's still lightly moist. Fourth, the colors are gorgeous. My favorite is the third one from the left. All the colors are great all year round. You can wear it as day time makeup or smoke it out for the night out. The shadows in this palette is all shimmery. If you like matte, they have a matte version. Pigmentation-wise they're decent. They're not the most pigmented but it is up there. Lastly, they lasted all day without creasing and smudging. I've always been a fan of cream shadows and this did not disappoint. I used it as both shadow and liner. You can also use it as a base and the shadow that you apply on top of will be so pigmented. It'll be hot!
