I like this pallet overall. I've been using theBalm's Nude Tude pallet (which I bought here at Birchbox) for years, and it's still my favorite pallet overall!!! However, I wanted a pallet with a few extra color choices, and this one is nice.
Like some reviewers said, the color is definitely more of a sheer color rather than hyper-pigmented. But that's exactly what I was going for--- a sheer wash of color that I could wear to work (in a school) without looking too flashy. When I wanted more pigmentation from the colors, I drew more pigment out by 1)wetting my eyeliner brush first and 2) using a cream primer.
It was a nice touch to get the liner (which is also great) for free. It smudges nicely and doesn't seem to disappear throughout the day.
I would give it 5 stars, but I feel that this pallet could have done a few things differently. I would have liked to have gotten some type of little brush, wand, sponge applicator, etc. so there would be one in the pallet when I'm on the go. Also, when I apply this shadow dry, it does "flake" from the brush so you have to make sure your mascara is totally dry.
