I wasn't initially drawn to this palette, but then I saw fafinette3 swatch the colors in one of her haul videos and I had to have it. This palette has a gorgeous collection of colors:

TWICE BAKED: A very pigmented brownie brown with a satiny sheen finish. Normally a color like this would look like dirt on my eyelids because of my skin tone - for some reason it doesn't. I think it is because this is neither a truly warm brown nor a cool brown, it is right in the middle. It blends effortlessly and looks great along the lower lash line, outer V, or the crease. This is literally the only brown I own!

HALF BAKED: A gorgeous gold with a metallic finish. This shade is amazing when washed lightly over the entire eye - add a little liner & mascara and you're done! I love to pack this color on my lid for a really dazzling gold effect. This shade also works as a highlight when applied lightly and looks very pretty in the tear duct. This turned out to be such a versatile shade for me. It really makes my eyes POP!

FLIPSIDE: This shade is not as pigmented as the other 3 shades - if I want it to look like it does in the pan I need to really pack it on. Flipside is a shimmery blue-green shade that gives the other 3 shades a pop of color. It's a really fun shade!

BAKED: This has to be the most metallic eye shadow I've ever seen! The finish on this shade is so rich, it looks like liquid copper. It's just gorgeous! I didn't think I could pull this shade off because I'm so pale but it really makes my eyes glow.

24/7 Eye Pencil in BOURBON: I love the Zero 24/7 pencil so I thought I would really love Bourbon too, especially to go with these eye shadows. Bourbon is "brown w/ teeny gold glitter" according to UD's description and I think it's the glitter that is messing with the formula. Bourbon doesn't glide on like Zero does. And please don't make the mistake of putting it on your waterline like I did, ouch. Glitter in the eye of any size is not fun. The color is nice and I'll definitely use this pencil but I would never buy the full sized version of Bourbon.

Mini UDPP in SIN: This is so pretty all on it's own - a neutral champagne wash of shimmer. I find myself using this from lid to brow with black liner & mascara for a quick I-have-no-time eye look. This is a really cool product and I think I will end up buying the full sized version at some point.

PACKAGING: So cute! Pucci style print all over, nice sized mirror, compartment for mini 24/7 pencil, shadows are labeled. "Get Baked" in bright blue foil letters on the lid of the palette makes me giggle or smile when I see it.

PRICE: $28! Totally worth it! Especially considering how often I find myself reaching for this palette. Which is a lot! :)

♥ Thank you for reading my review! Hope it was helpful! ♥

EDIT: If you have BoS 1 and are planning to buy BoS 2 you may want to skip on Get Baked. BoS 1 has Baked E/S and BoS 2 has Twice Baked, Half Baked, and Flipside E/S, AND a 24/7 Eye Pencil in Bourbon. So pretty much every single thing in the Get Baked palette except the mini UDPP in Sin. Just sayin', no need for dupes.
