Review + Swatches Profusion Cosmetics: Wanderlust Palette

I recently purchased the Profusion Cosmetics Wanderlust palette for review. I got mine at my local Target for $9.99 but I know that Walmart also carries this brand. Below, I have shared swatches from each of the rows on the palette as well as my thoughts on this product overall.

Top Row Swatches: All these shades except for the second shade on the left are "frosty" almost topper-type eyeshadow shades and do not swatch well on the skin with a finger.

Second Row

Third Row

My overall thoughts:
I feel like this palette is missing a pale brown or peach matte shade for a crease or transition shade for my medium toned/olive skinned girls. The pale shade on the top row could be used by my fair girls and I think the three matte browns on the bottom left are perfect for my deep skinned people of color, but if you are like me and are sort of a medium brown, I think this palette will require an outside crease shade (I'm MAC NC45/NW40 and Fenty 370 for reference. You can find all my foundation shades HERE).

The frosty shades on the first row do not swatch well on the skin, but they are quite buildable on the lid. They do take a fair amount of work, however, and I would not recommend this palette if the all the shadows were this texture.

The pans do have a slight perfume scent that makes opening the palette pleasant but not overpowering.

For the price, I think the shadows blend quite well and are easy to handle but they lack the sort of creamy blendability one would get from  Huda Beauty Desert Dusk/New Nudes or Anastasia's Soft Glam/Modern Renaissance.

There is a brush included with this palette and I am neutral on the brush. It works well and seems like a good quality brush, but the bristles are not as soft or as nice as my favorite BH Cosmetics brushes.

In conclusion, this is a cheap/affordable/budget palette that I would recommend if you are looking for a palette that is affordable and colorful. I personally selected the palette for the range of blue and purple shades. However, if you are looking for more quality in your shadows and a creamier texture, then I would opt for something else at the drugstore such as the Covergirl TruNaked palettes. The matte shadows work really nicely on the lids; the shimmers are a bit more grainy and can possibly be a little patchy at times. In particular, the shades Jade and Nostalgia are very nice quality.

Have you tried this palette? What are your thoughts? Would you recommend this palette?
