Eye primer I used for the swatches is MUA's Professional Eye Primer (review here).

Overall Experience:
I like eye shadow palettes than I can carry in my bag during travel and can use it for different looks. It saves space and time that I would otherwise waste to select the single eye shadows to make some combinations. For this point, this palette is really handy. You must be thinking that this is a shimmery palette then how come it is suitable for neutrals looks. Well, the brown eye shadows are not that shimmery and on application  they almost look matte.

If I talk about pigmentation, all the eye shadow are nicely pigmented. On application (without a primer underneath), the eye shadows look half as they look pigmented in the swatches above specially shade # 2 & 3. With an eye primer, they are just super pigmented and won't budge for good eight hours. I always apply an eye primer as I have oily lids and the eye shadows just never stay for long time and they creases too badly. Also, without an eye primer, the eye shadows do not look rich & enhanced most of the times.

I also tries shade 1 & 3 for highlighting & contouring my face respectively and they worked really fine. Shade 5 also works nice when you need a non-shimmery but not too matte highlighting.

Overall, I really like this palette and am very happy to try it.

Recommendation:
If you looking for a travel friendly eye shadow palette that is equally useful to create natural or party eye makeup looks. You should give this one a try. But I would also recommend that you use an eye shadow base or if you have oily lids, eye primer to have long lasting and enhanced results.

Cost & Availability:
Wide Edge Eyes costs RM 59 and is available at selected Guardian, Watsons & Sasa stores throughout Malaysia. You can also check out more products by Kate here.
