Well I have to say I am impressed with the PRO 3 Palette palette! The matte shades are super soft, very smooth and buttery feeling. The pigmentation is really nice, they aren’t chalky at all. The shimmers were nice as well, but I feel like the lighter ones (the first four) are a little gritty and not quite as pigmented as I would like. The deeper ones (the last four) are amazingly soft, very pigmented and pretty. I definitely would buy this palette simply for the super soft mattes and the last four shimmers.

The Matte PRO Lip Colors don’t impress me quite as much. They are a little more on the dry side of the matte lip spectrum for me, and they don’t apply quite as evenly and smoothly as I want. They are nicely pigmented but I noticed with Orchid I had to go over it quite a few times to get it more even looking. They aren’t the most hydrating formula I have tried of matte lip shades. I do like the pencil style and shape though.

You can find these at Nordstrom and Ulta. The palette is $44.00 and the Lip Colors are $18.00.
