While on a trip to Sephora to pick up a new mascara base (and to take advantage of the BeautyInsider 15% discount), I stumbled upon this palette and I just had to have it! The packaging got me.. well technically, I wouldn't say that the packaging is insanely gorgeous but the fact that it's a 'loving Canada' palette (even though the colours aren't exactly representative of Canada.. like red and white? lol), being a proud Canadian, I thought, what the heck! It was definitely a impulse purchase but the shades are actually really nice and usable (thank goodness it's not red and white! lol) so I don't regret it.. It's still very cute to look at and to have around.
This may be a good or a bad thing, but the palette is pretty small so some might argue that $18.00 CAD is a teeny bit pricey for it. Nonetheless, I think it's a perfect on-the-go palette since it comes with lip glosses and a blush (even though most of us do not use or enjoy the lip glosses that comes with eyeshadow palettes, the options all there if you ever need it).
