I bought this palette because I'm in love with the teal shade which is everywhere this season, and happily discovered these shades to be more wearable than I thought. I had thought to use the teal & blue shades as liners only but discovered that by shaking my brush before applying to remove excess product and using a good blending brush, even these dark shades were quite wearable. Also, although teal & blue are generally not considered everyday shades, I have been wearing the teal everyday on top of my regular brown shadow to add a little pizzazz. The teal blends very nicely with my regular shadow and gives me a lovely updated fall look for day, and can be applied heavier for a more dramatic night look. These are easily blended, have good staying power, true color, and although this palette isn't cheap, it also isn't as expensive as Dior, YSL, etc., so I gave it a 4. The packaging is pretty and the shadows are well distributed. The included applicators are pretty good as far as those go. Overall, an A+++ !
