NYLON x MEMEBOX Sweet 16 Palette Review and Swatches

I won this NYLON x MEMEBOX Sweet 16 Palette from Membox's Instagram giveaway back in May/April of this year. My first impression of it was, "Wow, it's pretty. The eyeshadows aren't that pigment." Now that I have used it for a while, my opinions of it changed. You have to break into the eyeshadow for it to be super pigmented, and I think the glitters in the shadows made it felt like it was super gritty, but it's not really.

What I like about this palette is that there are colors that I won't normally go for. My favorite color from this palette is "Paris" and "Nicole."

 Color Descriptions:

"The Moment": Glittery pale pink highlighter shade
"Lilo": Matte white
"Mary-Kate": shimmery lime green
"Mischa": shimmer burgundy red, brown red (lusty shade)
"Lana": another shimmery green shade
"Paris": beautiful shimmery brownish purple
"Nicole": beautiful shimmery green shade with hints of purple
"Sweet 16": NEON pink blusher

Here are swatches of each of the colors from the palette.
