What I Don’t Like About The Westman Atelier Les Nudes Lip Suede Palette
The four shades are in horizontal lines going from the top of the circle to the bottom of the circle. My biggest complaint is, the location of the shades in the palette. First, the palette has two darker pigmented shades. And, one is at the top of the circle. The other is at the bottom of the circle. The lighter shades are the two lines in the center of the palette.
The darker shades are smaller, due to their location in the circle. The two lightest shades are larger. This means, the darker, more pigmented shades have less the amount of product than the two lightest shades in the middle. My guess is, we would tend to wear the darker shades, on top and bottom, more than the two middle shades. My question is, so why are the lipsticks with more product in the middle, and the more wearable lipsticks are on the top and bottom?
Two Positive Things About The Westman Atelier Les Nudes Lip Suede Palette

On a positive note, the compact is Gucci’s first refillable compact. So, hold on to it! Sustainable refill cartridges will become available in late fall 2021.
