Product: 
Thes Matte formula shadows are VERY pigmented buttery smooth to work with that makes them feel creamy. I did find that Coffe Toffee suffered a bit on pigmentation/texture is still blendable while being a little bit on the drier side.

The Shimmer/Metallic formula they remind me of Natasha Denona metallics, and Makeup Geeks Foiled formula. The pigmentation is phenomenal and has a good hold on bare skin.

Wear: On their own these last in the 9-hour range. But a primer makes them all a full day on the lids.

Packaging: The size of these pans are only 2mm larger in diameter compared to Make Up For Ever eyeshadows and MAC's larger eyeshadows. The are the same Size as Sugarpill's and Suva's. The single pans come with a name on the back printed on them.

The SauceBox Cosmetics Étude & Art Nouveau palettes are laminated cardbaord with a magnetic coslsure and a mirror in the lid. The palette is magnetised to hold the eyeshadows pans.

The SauceBox Cosmetics Mermaid Life is a laminated stacked cardstock palette in a shell shape. The palette is magnetised to hold the eyeshadows pans. This one is bulky and heavy because of the size but you can pop out the pans. ;)

I find that the Kat Von D palette took a note from this SauceBox Cosmetics Étude palette for sure.


Verdict: 
The primary shades from this company and their limited edition eyeshadows are all really perfected which is why this brand is so loved inside the beauty community. This brand is relatively small in terms of products range and you can get these palettes in a bundle which is how I bought these to save some money if you're interested.

SauceBox Cosmetics Étude palette is my dream nude matte palette and I wish they sold these pans separately because I can see myself running out of their Beaming and Cream Dreams as face powders because they are so buttery to work on textured skin.
