The blues are gorgeous. Use em wet (foiled) for the best turnout. Very soft and beautiful. Use em dry to blend over the foil to pull it all together. Not for the makeup beginner.

i bought this on clearance for 2.49 which is why i decided to try it. i didnt have super high expectations, but let me tell you.. way better than i thought!
i used the middle blue under my nyx primer, the glitter in the crease and the light blue as a highlight. i had no problem getting color pay off and i think the glitter shadow is actually really nice!! i also used it under my black liner on the bottom of my eyes and it looks really awesome! i don t know if maybe the primer makes it work extra better or what, but i'm definitely digging this palette!! oh, but the silver liner it comes with is nothing special. i've always found their pencils to be too hard.
*EDIT*- i decided to do a little test before running an errand with this shadow. i had already tried the blues, so i decided to try the other 3 colors. this time i skipped the primer t see how well the payoff actually was, and i have to say, i am still pretty impressed. maybe because it is a cheaper brand, but the white/black baked color went on smoothly and looked really pretty, even with no primer! i used the black lightly in my crease and as an eyeliner. it looks awesome as an eyeliner! i also tried the blue glitter again, without a primer, and let me tell you.. this is the prettiest blue eyeliner ive used!! i also softened up the silver liner it came with, and it went on beautifully!! now, im not saying this is a miracle palette (except maybe the blue glitter..), nor am i saying the staying power will be great without a primer, but for the price this is an awesome deal. i'd even go as far to say i'd pay retail (the whole 5 bucks) for it! and for me, that says alot!

I saw this & loved the the dark blue color in this palette. All the shades looked nice so I bought it during a bogo 1/2off sale. I also got the Baked not Fried palette(which is better than this).
My problem with this palette is the pigmentation and how hard it is to use these shadows. You have to apply primer and use these shadows wet to get any color. I did this but I only got decent color from the black... The two top light colors are basically sheer glitter. The middle two marble colors are also sheer, the last two colors aren't great. The dark blue really disappointed me.
I tried to build up the colors, especially the dark blue. I applied these wet, attempting to get the most color payoff, and when I tried to build up the color I felt like I took off the color the more I tried to apply it! My eye shadow looked so patchy, sheer and bad I just took it off.
Also, the packaging is pretty bad! The lid is sometimes hard to take off and comes completely off. I don't like that too much.
I love WnW, so I was sad I didn't like this... :/
