I got the "The twilight palette" day before my Nikah , i was rushing to my salon as i was getting late for my hair dye appointment, I got the palette securely wrapped in bubble wrap,My first thoughts were  OMG its so cute and "compact". It looked pretty big in promo pics.But the palette is about the size a credit card.
I adore makeup palettes unfortunately i don't have many.But  I  love, love, love the ease, and creativity that an eyeshadow palette gives you. Its a perfect palette for any one who loves to experiment with different colors and looks.This palette will offer endless ways to recreate your look from day to night.
Once i came back home,I swatched the eye shadows after staring them for quite a long time . You girls have to trust me , the promo pictures didn't do justice to them because eyeshadows are quite vibrant and oh so gorgeous in real. 
 For me It is ALL about the eyes with this palette. I was excited about the eyeshadow from the day i saw the swatches on Luscious's blog 
 Most of these eyeshadows are Frosted (Frosted eyeshadow has an opaque finish with a white or silver sparkle. Pastels are popular frosted eyeshadow colors)
Full Moon: is a opal white shade with little silvery sparkle,  can be used to highlight under the brow and light up the center of eye
  Mortal:is iridescent pink with hint of silver
Jane:a deep sexy shade of denim blue. a navy blue with black undertones. My favorite
Eclipse:  is sparkling Grey black for a smoky effect.
Alice: is Rich and deep and grape purple
Esme: is beautiful shade of a lemon drop ,shimmering pale/ pastel yellow
Venom: is a beautiful green with subtle yellow / light gold tones., very unique shade
 and Rosalie : is a sparkling silver Grey shade
All eyeshadows are very interesting and  richly pigmented with the perfect velvety texture for smooth application. They absolutely glide onto the eyelid,and they have really FANTASTIC staying power.They blend so easily as well. But they tend to be crumbly.
If you had read my preview posts, you would know I wasn't so excited about the Bella face shimmer as it looked silvery white but its very light pink with shimmer and after swatching it , It reminds of Illasmaqua gleam cream but in powder form :)
It look bit darker for a highlighter , but after swatching it transfer as very pale iridescent pink with silver sparkles.

Luscious Twilight Palette consist of 4 beautiful lipglosses, which smell divine !! so coconutty. i want to eat them *yum*
These glosses are sheer with reasonable pigmentation
Glow: is transparent lip gloss
Emily:Fresh sheer peachy pink with orange undertone
Fatal: sheer gorgeous coral/peachy apricot colour.
Bitten: is a sheer Rich Berry Wine shade.
