How to Apply
• Brighten up the inner corner of the eyes by applying a shimmery shade with a damp Hourglass No.11 Smudge Brush – these shadows are designed to intensify when used wet.
• Use one of the lighter shadows for an all-over wash of color and then use the Hourglass No.4 Crease Brush to blend one of the deeper shades into the crease of the eyelid to create depth and contour.
• Taking the Hourglass No.9 Domed Shadow Brush, blend two shades together to create custom shadow options. The shades in each palette are formulated to blend together seamlessly.
• Apply a deep, matte shade all over the eyelid. Using a clean finger, dab into a metallic shade and gently pat onto the middle of the eyelid to create more dimension.
• Use the Hourglass No.10 Angled Liner Brush with a deeper shadow and press into the lash line to subtly define the eyes. Use the same technique with a damp brush for a darker, more dramatic look.
• Shadows are highly pigmented and only a small amount is needed for optimal color payoff.
• Designed to work seamlessly with the Hourglass Brush collection.

I love my modernist palette in obscura. It gives a sexy sooty eye look without the harshness of black. I like to use it with a synthetic fiber makeup brush as it deposits color best that way.

Beautiful colours and the pretty girly shades that I wanted. However as others had written in reviews, very chalky which was not great.

A worthwhile impulse buy....
I hadn't read any reviews on this product, my "Colorfield" palette was an impulse buy because it looked so beautifully presented. I had been looking for a khaki eye shadow which wasn't too glittery and could be built up for evening wear. This presentation has beige tones which go well with the two khaki shades and is easily blended for the day, or made more dramatic for evening wear.
The texture is good and is easily blended. I have oily eyelids, so eye shadow usually creases, and after a day long of wear this hasn't occurred.
My only concern with this product is that it looks too good to use, and that with continued use, the colours might cross-transfer because they flow into each other.
I definitely recommend this product.

Monochrome - Not worth the money
This eyeshadow palette is okay but nothing special. I think the shades are phenomenal so if you're looking for a lovely range of shades then look no further. However, for the price, the eyeshadows have very little pigment - you have to really build them up for colour payoff. Also, even though they're lovely and soft, there's so much fallout and all the colours in the pan just fall into each other. On the plus side, they're very blendable.
Overall I would say don't spend your money on this because it's not good enough for the price.

A real game changer of a palette.
Aware of some negative reviews of this product, I tried out different Modernist palettes with the help of an assistant in-store, eventually opting for the Monochrome colourway. I can honestly say, with no exaggeration, that it is the best eyeshadow I have ever used. My lids are hopelessly oily; usually both shadow and pencil liner all but disappear after an hour. The Modernist is the only eyeshadow that stays in place. What's more, the dark aubergine colour is perfect (dry or moistened) for lining the upper lid, so it really is everything I need in one palette. As for excessive fall-out: I haven't had this problem, although it may be because Monochrome contains mainly matte shades. I use a synthetic brush to just press onto the colour (rather than drag across the palette), tap once, then apply in a single sweep. The colours are easily buildable, but because of the strong pigmentation one application does the job. It is expensive, but now I no longer need liner or eye primer and can create a variety of looks that stay fresh all day. A lovely product.
