I got a very good deal on these eyeshadows, found the 30 shadow palette at a thrift store - "Flirt Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette" - in perfect condition, never used and still sealed - for $2.99. Sold for $29.99 according to the price on the back of the palette, but I think this may be last year's xmas special or something....still, a great buy at less than one cent per shadow!! Up till now I had only swatched a few of the Flirt! shadows at Kohls, never bought, so it was a great opportunity to try them out really cheap.
The selection is colorful, but neutral. A few brights, but still not very exciting if you are one of those people who likes bright and crazy shades. This would be a good palette for work looks. Some of the shades look familiar, so I am sure there are some major dupes here. Check out videos on YouTube for more info on dupes if you are interested - though for me, a dupe is more than just color. If a shadow looks just like a more expensive shadow, fine - but I want to know does it PERFORM like that more expensive shade? I have a whole drawer full of play makeup for my nieces, beautiful colors, yet crappy quality.
These shadows are not the best, but not the worst either. Pigmentation is pretty decent, though I would not say they are creamy or luxurious. The shimmers are very low key, so would be good for work or daytime if you can't or don't want too much glitter or drama. With a primer, the shadows have decent lasting power. Packaging isn't so great, they are in a cardboard box with a hinged lid, and protected with a clear cover, but it isn't convenient to store or keep them in this package. Nor have I figured out a better way to do it.
So far, nothing about them makes me want to run and buy them for the single price of roughly $10, though this could change because I have yet to try all 30 of the shades - possibly I will fall in love with some of the colors, we'll see! But for now, my opinion is, that for the price, there are a few better choices out there. I would not pay the full price for this palette. Probably I will try to experiment with each color, and if my love does not grow, this one will go to my niece - who is going to be allowed to wear makeup for real next year.

Flirt eyeshadows are some of my favorites because they are silky smooth, long lasting and blendable. I have them in Peach champagne ( Shimmery peachy-pink sand tone), Wink of Pink (very light creamy pink with slight sheen) and Sugar Daddy ( gorgeous sandy beige with light shimmer). Update: Just purchased sweet sensation which is a blue-toned pink that does not look good on me.

I've got four of these shadows as of today and I'll probably buy more colors. You get loads of product for the money and the quality compares to MAC imo. Aquavit, Black Ivy, Golden Lady and Denim Flash make up my collection; respectively they are a bright turquoise, a dark smokey blue, a dark yellow gold and a blue toned silver. They are very blendable and come in an awesome slide-open, mirrored container. All the ones I own have are shimmery but not glittery. My only complaint is the names of the colors as they're often misleading; black ivy is neither black or green as you might expect but blue. I saw a palette today that had blue in the name but not one of the four colors could be described as blue even if you are color blind. Oh well, what's in a name as they say.
