Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Dominique Cosmetics Transition Palette. I picked it up during one of the BoxyCharm Pop Up Sales. I think that I only have one palettes that is all matte and its only 4 shades. I have hit pan in two of shades and have wanted to purchase this palette for a while. I am someone that ALWAYS hits pan in the lighter matte base and transition shades in a palette. During the weekday I tend to reach for 3 shadows. A matte skin tone or bone color (base shade), a matte light brown transition shade, and a shimmer shade for the lid. I often reach for my ColourPop Super Shock Shadows for lid shades and then use my other palettes for the matte shades. I have hit pan on so many lighter shades and am wearing down on many of my warm brown shades so I felt like this would be a palette that I would reach for a ton on a daily basis. Keep reading to hear more about this palette!

On to my thoughts:
I do like that this is a multi-use palette. The fact that you can use it as shadow, blush, contour, and brow powder makes it very versatile. I most likely will only use it as shadow but its a great palette to travel with or for someone that doesn't have a ton of different beauty products. The shadows are very pigmented and blend very nicely. I have been reaching for it a ton. I really have nothing negative to say with my experience so far. My only wish is that there was one more matte brown shade that was on the warmer side. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend it!
