This stuff is awesome!! I can't believe I waited so long to buy it. This shadow is very pigmented, the colors are all amazing on my fair/light skin (even the dark shades!), and they blend SEAMLESSLY. I also like that the shades are not all just "brown," some are more purple-hued, some have undertones of green, some of pink, some of gold. The shades are more versatile in my opinion than in any other comparable Nude palette. The only reason I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars is that the brush it comes with is a little cheap (I just use my own), and that the price is slightly higher than what I'd like to pay. But definitely use your Birchbox points to buy this set!!
