What a great product -- 7 fabulous neutral shades, which will work on practically EVERYBODY. The shadows are magnetized in, so they don't fall out. I use this constantly, would buy it again in a heartbeat. Fabulous product, and great for packing or on-the-go. I LOVE IT!

An eye palette that consists of 3 matte eyeshadows and 4 matte liner shades. The eyeshadow shades are:
Sensitivity - a pale pink, Divinity - light peach, and Serenity - pale yellow.
The liner shadows are: Stability (grayish taupe), Prosperity (medium taupe), Possibility (medium brown), and Intensity (dark brown, slight reddish undertones). The shadows are sheer on my tan complexion, but great for a natural eye look. The liners are pigmented, but I wish there is at least one black shade. Both shadows and liners have a velvet texture and applies smoothly. The staying power is okay, I did experience some fading during mid-day, but no creasing. The case is made of cardboard and closes magnetically (a la Stila paper palettes). The case is the size of a UD face case and also has a mirror. The palette is expensive at US$37.50, but if you don't already have these basic shades, than this may be an option for you.
Update 1/5/04: I am really digging this palette. I find myself reaching for it daily and find it more versatile than first thought.
Prosperity, is perfect for my dark brown brows. Originally I thought Stability would be too dark (and boring) to work as an eyeshadow, but it looks lovely over Iced Coffee (Loreal's Colour Fresco). Sensitivy, Divinity, and Serenity are wonderful base shades. The interior of the palette is difficult to keep clean. However, the outside is immaculate since I store the Little Black Book in it's original box, which is slim and doesn't take up extra space.
