I'm really pale, blue eyes & blond hair, and most eyeshadows are too dark on me, plus I like a really natural look so the MAC multicolored thing is not my speed at all. I have been searching for a good nude wash to even out the freckles & discoloration on my eyelids, going through all the HE classics & picked up this 2 weeks ago, and I'm really impressed. There are 6 pale shades to pick from or layer, some pinkish, some yellowish, but all pretty neutral; the base is pretty good, and applied with the Studio Tools crease brush (for $1.99 also at target) the coverage is really good and always natural looking. Nudes can often look chalky but so far I haven't noticed this with these shadows; I really can't tell any difference from the quality of this palette and MAC, BB or Stila shadows. This palette, mascara, e/l, and a touch of a darker crease color (BB Fawn is my favorite) is all that i need to feel really pretty without being overdone or obviously made-up. A winner.
