I generally stick with a few reliable products when it comes to makeup (before this I owned one shadow with 3 colors on it), but this palette is spectacular!! The matte shadows work perfectly with my eye color and skin, and are much more lush than what I as using, while still looking natural. Plus, it doesn't rub off on the black winged eyeliner I wear, which is a huge plus. Other shadows tend to dull the black line but these stay put. I haven't used the shimmers that much, but I am loving the range available.
