What is definitely clear is the quality of the shadows: they are lovely! Richly pigmented, smooth, and extremely blendable, they are a delight to work with. I was a bit leery of the high shimmer content of Soft Moonstone and Rhodolite Gemstone at first, but somehow they manage to stay out of frosty territory. The matte lavender/gray/blue and black are both easy to work with and have none of the negatives (powdery or patchiness) that can come with matte shadows at times.

After playing with this kaleidoscope, I'm more comfortable with the colors and think I'll enjoy having it as part of my collection. If you are not familiar with the seasonal kaleidoscope subscription plan, it's $225 for 3 kaleidoscopes which makes them $75 as opposed to the usual $95. Pricey, I know, but there is something a bit addicting about them. Each series includes one eye, one lip, and one blush or face kaleidoscope and they are supposed to complement each other. So, it will be interesting to see if the others continue with the fall like hues.
