I'm actually blown away by the cream base in this palette. My shadow lasts about 12 hours with ne'er a crease in sight...of course after that it's pretty quickly downhill, but that's expected with oily lids. This palette won't give you any show-stopping looks because it lacks significant--okay okay, mediocre pigmentation--but you will be able to but a nice shine and hint of hue on your lids in quite a few shades.

You may also be thinking that this post is lacking significant photos of all the color swatches in Sweet Nothings, but the name kinda sums this one up--there's nothing really to see that can be captured on camera for me. By this I mean, these shadows swatch sheer and the only difference I can really see is how they make my eyecolor pop, not the actual eyelid or eyeshadow. Since not everyone has my eyecolor, all those photos would help so much, but it is safe to say that I am all over this as a nice, neutral, barely-there makeup palette.

P.S. The "sour" bit I was referring to was indeed the pigmentation of these, but after using it on a few occasions, it dawned on me that I still very much enjoy a simple, understated look that can only come from a good, sheer shadow. Sonia Kashuk, I tip my hat to you.
