Great Idea, but...

I love this idea, but how can I want to get a refill for a particular color? Do we have to buy the whole palette again?

Love! but...

I have a 1 year old and my husband works nights in the military so all day, I'm chasing our daughter around the house, taking the dog in and out (we live in an apartment, no backyard), going to the store, doctor appointments, the post office - doing whatever needs to be done. I needed something that I wouldn't have to touch up constantly or worry about fall out or smudging. When my husband got me the Career Life Palette as a present I was super excited - a little heldback. But I was pleasantly surprised. Routinely throughout the day, I'll check my makeup and it'll still be in place, still be as vibrant as when I first applied it. Obviously, like with most makeup, it lasts and looks better with primer but without, the quality of the eyeshadows is awesome. Two quirks I don't care for though are how shallow the dishes are that the brush and picker stick are in. They fall out very easily and with my daughter, I can't have that because she'll swoop them up and do heaven knows what. Also, they're clear so if they do fall out, they're hard to find (for me, anyways. My daughter doesn't seem to have an issue). Aside from that, how close together the powders are to the gloss. I haven't gotten eyeshadow or blush into the lip colors but that's partially because as soon as I got the palette, I pulled the lip colors out and put them into the mini travelling case my palette came with. Since its all magnetic, they stay even if the well they're in is to big but still - it takes away from the overall look and I think its a little ridic I have to even do that to keep the product from getting ruined. Suggestions? Color the stick and brush, make their slots in the palette deeper, clippable or maybe add an easy slide out drawer somewhere for them to sit to eliminate them getting lost so easily. As for the lip colors, maybe put a cap on those or rearrange the layout so they aren't sitting so close to the powders and you don't run the risk of ruining them by accidently mixing product.

I'm so happy for everyone that created this, but wow..... first off this was really expensive. Everyone knows that makeup isn't a necessity, if anything they've could have made it way more affordable. If the price was set, then the look of the products should change. I'm really sorry but it looks tragically cheap (does not match up with the price). I want to continue to support em, I just need a reason to. I'm sure you'll attract more customers if the price and product theme is changed.

I love this palette ! I travel for work and its really hard to find a palette that combines all colors that I can use for work and has blushes, eyeshadows and lipcolors ! This palette has it all ! Also it is a very great quality and the shadows glide on smoothly ! As a flight attendant I need to look on point every day but still don't want to carry around an extra back just for makeup ! This palette is the solution ! It has a great value as you get 4 different looks for the price !

I got my career palette in the mail and the packaging was beautiful and, as someone who doesn't usually buy expensive make up, I was VERY impressed with the quality of the shadows. However after using the palette for a week I did notice some drawbacks. Because of how close the blush, shadow and lip colors are sometimes I would apply blush and notice black on my face from the shadow! and if you get some shadow in the lip color it will just never come out, Also the shadow picker tool and double sided brush(I love them both) are stored in very shallow holes and fall out, then I have to search my floor for a tinny CLEAR tool. The picker is an important part of this palette and it just seems way too easy to lose! But these issues are all things I can work around and the over all product is super fantastic and I will defiantly buy more from em in the future!!!

love!! but...

I got a sample of the Career Palatte a recent Ipsy Bag, and I LOVED it! Perfect colors for my skin tone, and the products were super long-wearing. However, I came on here to purchase the complete palatte, and it's honestly out of the realm of affordability for me... Maybe in the future. I'm so sad :(

Consider this, Im a full time college student, I work part time in a pizza place that deals with heat, steam and even my own sweat. Gross I know. I am up literally from 8AM til whatever hours at night. Now I must say, I was first like many here extremely skeptical of Em cosmetric prices, even with this many color combos it means nothing if the quality doesn't pull through to match it. It passed the test! So happy I found something like this! I did One eye I had with primer and Obviously much brighter color wise and lasted all night long. (thats an eight hour shift!) The One eye without primer: Not as vibrant color wise and little fall out (not so bad actually) However it lasted just as much as the one with primer! Other comments: Packaging: Though I heard many complains about how much the packaging looks cheap and not well made its quite the opposite. The outter packing of the career pallate is detailed on very corner! theres something to see all around! I love how you can just pull open the top of the cover (which I had autographed) to see the colors (its held by some strong velco) The palette it self though is a very simple design, there is a wonderful emboss on it with different words such as embrace, emotion. It has wonderful weight to it so you know that it won't magically slip out of your hands. what made me love it more is that there a plastic piece inside that keeps everything in place, and even comes with labels to label your looks! I believe this measures about a 12x12 so its pretty big, measuring diagonally, from my middle finger to 4-5 inches pass my wrist, Even the travel palette is a great size. Suggestions: -The pick and the brush provide are pretty awesome, my only real complain is simply that because its clear its easy to lose it. I suggest for the next batch of production to color the pieces so if the piece goes missing its easy to locate it. (for now I wrapped a piece of colored label tape on it to see it :D) - Hopefully you can open a section soon for these refillable pans :D - It seems that the blush, and eye shadows are too close to the lip colors so IF there is powder brushes passes over it there's a chance for powder to get to the gloss which is a no no. - Following the above suggestion the blush being close to the shadows as well, there might be a chance of a darker color not meant for the cheek (ex: black shadow in my blush is no no as well) so for both, I suggest maybe redesign the shape of the next travel palette and life set. - Allow us a chance to have the face charts to play with as well ^_^ its hard to find a good face chart. Finally, I would love to say that I hope that we can have a meet and greet in NYC again ^_^ I would love to purchase some more palettes in person!

Love it and totally worth it! Especially the price!

I have been watching Michelle phan for years so when she realised her makeup i HAD to buy some. I live in australia, lucky a friend who lived in us shipped it to me. It was worth the extra cost in postage. I see a lot of comments about the price. Honestly this is sooooo cheap. Come to australia our make-up over here is twice the price paid in the US. So when i saw it I bought it! in fact. I have 4 out of the 6now. Soon all of them. The eye shadows are one of the bests i have come across and very pigmented. They go on easy and stay on!! and when you combined it with the eye primer from EM it will not be going anywhere. I love now i have 4 choices of blush. I mix and match the colours up to create my own thing. The whole Life pallet idea is amazing!! It is that one thing, that every women wants and loves. it has everything she needs, with the option of easy transport with the travel kit. In my opinon EM comestices is worth it. I now do monthly-second mothly orders for me and a couple of other girls and get it shipped over, because its works out cheaper and better than Other cosmetics for same and higher prices.

The beach life paleTte is amazing.. i think i only look good with a tan, so its perfect for me.. I have olive skin with freckles, and it gives me glow and warm tan look that I LOVE. THE LIPGLOSS COLORS GIVE YOU A WIDE VARIETY OF SHADES TO CHOOSE FROM, ACCENTUATING THE GLOWY-LOOK.

Love this product. My new favorite makeup brand!!!

beautiful metallics

Aug 24, 2013

I've recently tried this palette and it's good. The metallic shades are my favorites, they're soft and buttery and extremely pigmented. The lips colors are sheer, do not expect an amazing pigmentation, they act like a gloss and last about 2-3 hours without reapplying. I honestly love the blushes, especially the first shade, reminds me of my MAC Melba blush... It's a good palette.

Good idea, poor execution

Blushes are soft and pigmented. Lip colors are nice. Most eye shadows are good. Some are not as pigmented, but they all blend well on the eyes. Some eye shadows are powdery and they fall into the lip products. I wish the palette came without any lip colors or the lip products came in a separate palette. It was a hassle just keeping the excess powders off the lip products. I will just get the refills of my favorite shades when they become available.

Amazing, worth the wait

I am a fulltime mom and work part-time in a University setting. I wasn't a big make-up girl until I saw Michelle on the Katie Couric show and was inspired to try new looks. I asked my husband to get me the day life and career life pallettes for my bday. I had to wait a long month to get them until my bday arrived. I was concerned I'd be disappointed b/c I built them up so much in my mind but boy I wasn't at all. The colors are beautiful. Michelle's tip sheet and online tutorials are amazing and make me feel confident to wear her products and not look like a 4 year old who got a hold of mom's makeup. This makeup isn't just for 20 somethings but us 30 somethings can benefit from it too. Thank you MIchelle. People say your makeup is expensive but it is high quality and your tips, tutorials and inclusion of the application info make it all worth it.

I love my Love life Palette

I was so excited when my friend from America brought me my me Michelle products, and that for a reason! The Love Life Life Palette is absolutely amazing. The quality is really good and the colors are beautiful. I also love the small Travel Palette because it is just so handy. The products is definitely worth the Price and I am happy I bought them!!!

Love/Hate relationship

Feb 16, 2014

I love how I can get 4 sets of makeup pallets in one life pallet and I love how the colors for each section go together beautifully. I would, however, would like to be able to change one/two of the four sections out for colors I would actually wear. The problems that I found are: lip balms are too close to the dark eye shadow/eye liner color (I have actually taken out all of my lip colors and put them into the small compact so they don't get ruined. I would like to see a change in that set up), and I have also noticed that if I forget to put on my eye primer, this makeup bleeds horribly within two to three hours.

Great value and product!

First off, I hear a lot of complaints about price and that bothers me because look how much make up you're getting, plus a high quality fillable compact! Great value. I wonder how much eyeshadow blush and cheek color you could get at this price at other high end stores! Not much... Second, I love the packaging and quality of pigment. The lip colors are great. The tutorial leaflet is super helpful. I even love the brush that comes with it; usually I just throw those away but one end is an angle brush and it is so precise...I love it. Last is the celestial sparkle top coat. LOVE! Picture shows mewith a daytime version of Look 4. I borrowed lip color from look 3 and I love it

I bought the love life and the beach palette. They both have amazing colors. The shadows stay all day. I do use eye primer but i am sure w/o it will be fine too. Michelle is an inspiration. I have been following her since she started on you tube and I learned all my makeup tricks from her. Thank You Michelle. The past 38 years of my life I have never heard this from a stranger. I was at a fast food drive thur line rolling down the window the cashier just look at me and said WOW you are beautiful so flawless. I have never had a stranger said that to me at all. :-) its a good feeling. I was wearing look #3 from the love palette.

must have!

I can see myself using this everyday. It has those great neutrals. The colors are rich and very pigmented. They feel very sultry and soft. I was most amazed at the pigmentation. These seem to be top quality!

My Career palette came in a couple of days ago really quick. I tore open the beautiful packaging and started to play. I am in the Army and I am forced to be more natural in my uniform. The positive in this palette is the Matte eye shadows i don't wear alot of glitter so nice neutral mattes. The many options makes me have a different look everyday very nice and the highlight colors are a beautiful contrast. Cons the eye liner is too close to the lip color and the tool to pick up the shadows is clear very hard to see. The price was a bit high I can afford it but I waited till black friday to get mine half price. Some shadows take multiple applications to get the color in the pod but over all a very nice product and its a perfect life palette for my life thank you.
