Personally I love this, the purple colors are great for a fun and flirty look and the neutral colors are just perfect. I use this for everyday natural looks and I've also used it for dark and smokey looks. It does contain a matte highlighting color but it doesn't have a darker matte brown. However, for me, that does not stop me from loving this palette.
One thing I was disappointed about was the purple eyeliner that came with it was dried out and never really worked well. It was a really nice color and stayed for a really long time but it was very difficult to get it to transfer onto my top lash line and also my water line. I think that was just mine though, because I have seen about two others where that is not the case.
