First up the compact with this palette is amazing. It’s got a blue and aqua fabric case which is so pretty. It’s well constructed with a very nice mirror and 13 round eye shadow shades.
I am a huge fan of Clinique eye shadow and these are just as nice. The colors are my favorites with brows, taupe, green, blue, pink, purple and bronze in the mix. They are nice and pigmented and look so pretty on my eyes.
My only issue is with the brushes. When they are loose they fly out when I open the case so I took those out.
Overall I am thrilled with this palette. I think it’s a great deal for $39.

The palette contains 12 shades. The top 3 shades are Confidence (matte), Paw! (matte) and Magical (shimmer). These can be used as a base, shadows or highlighter/bronzer.
The 9 bottom shades are grouped in a trio:
Limitless (metallic gold/beige)
Powerful (metallic light pink/beige)
Aura (metallic gold/brown)
Unstoppable (metallic gold)
Superstar (metallic mauve/purple)
Fearless (metallic brick)
Bold (matte dark blue
Daring (matte brown)
Superhero (matte black
The three top shades do work well as eye foundations to color correct. The light Confidence shade really brightened up by eyes and reduced discoloration.
According to It Cosmetics “Each formula is infused with antiaging ingredients, including hydrolyzed collagen, silk, and peptides to nourish and smooth the look of your eyelids.” I have not owned this palette long enough to see any anti-aging results but the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials Matte Eyeshadow Palette does make my eyelids look very smooth and pretty.
The shades themselves go on smoothly and the Neutrals are my favorites. They are on the powdery side but not at all chalky and they adhere well to my lids.
Overall I am really loving this palette and the Superhero branding just makes me smile.
I also got an It Superhero 4-in-1 brush that can be used as an all-over brush, crease brush, smudger brush and liner brush.
