EDIT: I've had this for a couple of months now. At first I liked it, but after spending more time with it, I must say I'm disappointed. There are a few good shadows in this palette, but overall, you really have to work with the shadows for the best color payoff. (It's best applied with your fingers then use a brush to blend.) TOP ROW (MATTE): 1st: Similar to WnW's Brulee. Nice, smooth texture 2nd: Barely shows on my NC30-35 skin 3rd: Beautiful taupe color in the pan. Poor color payoff 4th: Most pigmented of the four matte colors BOTTOM ROW (SHIMMER): 1st: Too shimmery and too much fallout for all over the lid or for highlighting under the brows 2nd: Only a shade darker than the 1st shimmer color. Again, too shimmery and too much fallout 3rd: An exact dupe for MAC's Amber Lights. Buttery texture, great pigmentation. 4th: Poor color payoff. Much darker in the pan than on your eye. BLUSH & BRONZER: Great pigmentation, finely milled, smooth texture. My only issue is the bronzer is too light for my skin tone so it's barely noticeable. HIGHLIGHTER: Too much shimmer for my taste.
