Makeup Palette Review - Love Alpha Summer gadually compact (sponsored by KKcenterHK)

Here is my review of Love Alpha Summer Gradually Compact eyeshadow and blush palette. KKcenterHK has generously sponsored me with this colorful palette, and I had a lot of fun playing with it.

This palette is made up of two layers: The top layer contains 8 shimmery/metallic eyeshadow in various colors, and the bottom later slides out to reveal two blushes, a sponge-tip applicator and a small brush.
Here are the applicators close-up. The brush was a bit too small to be useful, but the sponge-tip applicator is of great quality.
Here is all the shadows and blushes swatched on my inner arm. I swatched the left blush on the left, the eyeshadows in the same order as the palette in the middle, and the right blush on the right. I then tested each of the eyeshadows and the blush on my eyelids and cheeks. All photos below are taken with natural light next to a window, and I am wearing Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion as base on my eyelids.

All the eyeshadows have good pigmentation and the blush is decently pigmented as well. The eyeshadow colors are quite versatile and can be used for daytime and nighttime looks. Overall I give this palette 8.5/10 as the quality is good and the packaging is interesting.

Thank you KKcenterHK for the sponsorship!
