The website describes the colors are ideal for Summer, but why don’t we incorporate some warmth in Winter-almost Spring?!
“Designed in collaboration with Maya Janeska, these refreshing neutral hues combine with two pops of color to create the ideal palette for summertime looks with a hint of mod style. 10 shades that coordinate flawlessly.”

This palette comes with 1 eyeshadow palette with 10 shadows, 5 tutorial cards by Maya Mia and a small double ended brush.
The packaging of this palette is eye-catching. The colors speak what’s within the palette with shades of peachy-pink, aqua, green, gold and brown tones. The front of the palette has MAYA MIA inscribed on it.

As I have mentioned in my Tamanna palette review, I am not very happy with the Duo Shadow brush these palettes include. But these small brushes are okay, if you are travelling or need a brush in a hurry.
The 5 tutorials included in the palette is really helpful. 5 different eye makeup looks with different techniques is easy to follow and master.
This palette has 10 eyeshadows with different finish and undertone. For details about the shadows, keep on reading.
