This palette includes 15 eyeshadows, 1 blush, and 1 bronzer. Below, I listed all the shades with their shade description, pigmentation level, and personal notes, when applicable. I marked my favorites with an asterisk. From left to right, up to down:
Blue Oasis*: Matte seafoam blue (sheer pigmentation) (Illamasqua Anja is very similar)
Trust Me: Frosted warm pink (good pigmentation)
Abu: Frosted neutral brown (excellent pigmentation) (MAC Tempting is lighter; MAC Bronze is more orange)
Ali Ababwa: Matte ivory (good pigmentation) (MAC Vanilla is lighter; MAC Brule is less yellow; UD Foxy is similar)
Sultana: Frosted pink champagne (excellent pigmentation) (UD Sin is very similar)
Friend Like Me: Frosted medium blue with silver shimmer (good pigmentation)
Master*: Frosted eggplant (good pigmentation)
Cosmic: Shimmery peach copper (excellent pigmentation) (UD Penny Lane is very similar; UD Chopper has more glitter; UD Moonflower is darker)
Cave of Wonders: Satin warm yellow (good pigmentation)
Sand in the Glass: Frosted warm light beige (excellent pigmentation)
Lapis: Satin medium blue (decent pigmentation)
Mystical Wonder: Frosted periwinkle blue (good pigmentation)

Arabian Sunset: Coral with gold shimmer (decent pigmentation)
Bazaar: Satin warm medium brown (good pigmentation)
Thrilling Chase: Satin warm mauve (excellent pigmentation)
Golden Sands: Frosted golden brown (excellent pigmentation)
I'm somewhat underwhelmed by the shades. It's not because they're bad or uncoordinated, but because I don't think they reflect Jasmine very well, as I feel that all that Sephora did was stick in colors of items in the movie--not very original!
Additionally, the pigmentation, as noted above, can be improved. A good primer or base can resolve this problem, but if you're too impatient to build eyeshadow like I am, this may not be the palette for you.
On the bright side, the packaging is lovely. This palette is housed in a pink satin box inside a black box (outer box) which you can pull out with the pink tassel on the side.
Considering this beautiful packaging and its array of eyeshadows (and blush and bronzer), its price of $55 is reasonable. I think it's worth considering if you think you'll wear at least some of the shades frequently. Or, if you're like me, you can also purchase it as a collector's item (or if you're a die-hard Jasmine or Aladdin fan). Otherwise, you can probably pass. There are other palettes with better formulas within the same price range on the market.
Would I repurchase? No.
(On another note, I'm psyched for the other Disney Storylook palette releases, especially Ariel! I've heard rumors of a Belle and Snow White palette too, and I've also heard that Ariel is to be the next palette release! I hope the rumors are true!)
