This palette is awesome. I was super lucky to have received it for free from a friend. Still, I would say it is worth the hefty price tag. I took this and Urban Decay's Naked 1 on vacation. I almost always used this palette and only needed to use shades from the Naked one time. This is a great neutral palette, but it still has pizazz. I really love the champagne/soft gold color. At first I was concerned that the shades might be too shimmery, but they aren't.
pros: good pigmentation, buttery soft shades, nice color selection within the palette
cons: the price, the white shade is too stark for my taste, and the packaging could be better
