This is the first palette I ever purchased, and honestly, it could really be the last. I legit think it is better than either of the Naked palettes, and is perfect since I don't usually go crazy with my eyeshadow. It has all the shades I need to do either a regular day look, or to punch it up for a night look. There are also darker shades so you can really do a great smokey eye. It is not the most compact thing to travel with, but considering it is the only thing I need to take with me, I will definitely trade off convenience for having to tote it around. The brush it comes with isn't great, but when are they ever? I don't usually use the mirror that comes with it, but it is a good size, so I'm sure if I needed to use it, it would be fine.
