Review + Swatches of the Divergent Multi-Piece Collectors Kit

So, granted this palette is no longer available on the Sephora website because it sold out within days, I actually bought mine in-store so if you are highly interested like I was, I would suggest calling all of the local Sephora's around you!
or you can try and get one on eBay or Amazon!

This palette was extremely raved about and being a die hard Divergent fan I justified buying this huge case for the love of Tris and Make-up.

With that all being said, If I remember correctly the Palette was around $60 and it contains 3 eye shadow palettes, 1 cheek palette, 4 glosses, and a duo sided blush brush and crease brush.
The neat thing about the entire kit is that it literally screams Divergent the moment you see it and once you see the colors within the palettes you realize that a lot of time and thought was put into them.

The eye shadow palettes are named after the factions: Dauntless, Erudite, and Abnegation and it is insane how each palette resembles the colors that they are portrayed to have in the books.
The Dauntless Palette is more on the darker side, with stormy blues, and greys.
The Erudite Palette is more of the earthy tones with greens, and satin beige.
The Abnegation Palette is completely neutral.
These palettes also include a transformer shade, which looks like compressed glitter and can be used wet or dry. I personally think that the most pigmented transformer shade was part of the Dauntless Palette and the other two are best to be used wet.
These palettes are amazing quality with brilliant color pay off. They are also so easy to blend and don't crease on my eye lids even without a primer!

The Cheek Palette includes two blusher shades (one satin, and one shimmer), a highlight, and a bronzer. I have really been enjoying this, I took it on my cruise last month and it was so perfect for every look, and the bronzer did not look muddy at all. I think that the only down side would be that the highlighter shade is not as pigmented as I would like it to be.

The glosses are all on the neutrals side, and I would say that they are not very opaque and long wearing but they do have a minty feel on the lips that makes them nice to just throw on if you're going to be out of the house for a little while.

The packaging of the kit and the palettes overall is very unique and captivating to the eye, the way they incorporated the Ferris wheel was brilliant considering it was such a huge part of the books/movie!

Here are the pictures+ swatches:
