Groovynub has done a very good job of describing this palette. The odd thing is that the blush included does not seem to be the same as her regular Pink blush (which I have), although that's what it says on the back of the palette. I actually prefer the one in the palette. The powder has a subtle sparkle & doesn't control shine for very long, the eyeshadows are nice but not wildly exciting, and the lip colors are just all right. They actually look a little too purple for my PPP (NC 15) skin. The crapplicators that come with this set should be thrown away immediately. I gave this a 3 because I only really *love* the blush. I much prefer my Nordies MAC palette for $38.50 - it has 4 shadows, 2 lippies & 2 blushes plus usable shadow & lip brushes. Still, this is a convenient & reasonably priced way to try several colors.
