the colors are so pigmented, absolutely beautiful. I really love the exact split of shimmer and matte and array of neutrals. although, an eye shadow primer is definitely needed. haven't tried the mascara that comes with it yet but will do and probably review separately. the size of the palette is perfect, fits in my makeup case, love the packaging and the brush included is awesome quality. I've been waiting to get this palette for a long time and glad I finally did. Can be used for work, day and night looks, its so versatile - if you mainly go for neutral looks this is the palette for you. Great range from black/gray to brown/taupe.
