Anastasia Beverly Hills "Want You To Want Me" Palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills "Want You To Want Me" Palette

I was pretty excited to try out this Anastasia Beverly Hills set since I've always heard such great things about the Anastasia Beverly Hills line. 

The box comes with 9 matte and pearlized nudes in shades of plum, a black liquid liner, mini brow gel, as well as an eye shadow brush.

First for what I really liked.  The set comes in a nice box which is great for travel. The colours in the shadow palette range from light to darker pigmentation. I like that they are plum in colour, it is a colour that I don't wear enough! The main box, as well as the eye shadow palette, both come with mirrors which is always a bonus! The liquid liner goes on dark and is pretty long lasting. I like the fine tip brush, it allows for precise application. (I personally like thinner liner, so this is great)

Now for the not-so positives. The eye shadows are not as pigmented as I'd like. You have to pile it on to get a nice amount of colour. They also wipe off and crease quite easily.
I felt that the brow gel was a bit unnecessary to have in there. Maybe I just don't use it as much as others?  Overall, this set seems a bit disjointed to me.  I get the concept (everything for the eyes) but there's just something that seems off for some reason. I think I would have liked to see a mascara in there.

Have you used this set before? Thoughts?
