I got this from a swap, and I am decently satisfied with it. There is a good colour selection, and I LOVE the packaging. It's such a cute palette.
The eyeshadows were too sheer though, so they took some time to build up.
The blushes were my fav. If you swipe across all of them you get a nice peachy colour.
The lip colours I don't really use. They're kinda oily. Oh well.

This is probably one of my favorite makeup products of all time. I love love love the eyeshadow and Sugar Cosmetics' lip gloss in general. I have no idea what the people who say the smell is bad are talking about. I have literally bought 4 of these exact same palettes - two for myself and two as gifts - and they always smelled amazing. The gloss has always looked great, tastes sweet, and smelled really nice. My friends who I gave this to love it, my boyfriend says it tastes nice when he kisses me, it's all great. The eyeshadow even smells like sugar! The blush is great for me, but since I'm pale I never really have used the bronzer, which is one of Sugar's most popular products.
I'm trying to think of a single bad thing about this product, and I think the only thing I would change is that the packaging around the lip gloss does get this sort of oil ring(?) around the pans. I never noticed this with the Daily Diary or I Shop For Sugar palettes (I really am addicted to Sugar palettes haha), and the lip gloss is basically the same in those. Maybe because the BF palette is white and those others are black plastic? anyway, I would buy again, and have bought again, again and again lol.

I use this pallette almost every day. The eyeshadows are excellent they go on smoothly and have a high pigment and excellent shimmery or matte coverage depending on the shade. I find them very blendable as well and use the darker colours as liner for my lower lids without worrying about it spreading all over my face during the day. I especially enjoy the plum shades. The brushes that come with it are useless, but I think most people ha ve their own brushes to start with. The glosses were a big disappointment, although they looked nice they smelled horribly chemical and within a few weeks had begun to leak and bleed throughout the package. The blush/bronzer/highlighters are awesome. The colours look great on my skin now when I have a tan and even when I'm at my palest winter hue. I am currently purchasing this again on Sephora.

As much as this palette has been very useable, I don't think I would purchase again because I am truly not that exited about it.
I got it last Christmas as a gift. Actually, a gift certificate.
Shadows: I liked some, others not so much. I like the pink shimmer, and the greys and silvers as well the basic white and black. But the green was a strange shade and I am not a fan of orange and peach shadows that are two shimmery.
Blush: The blushes are nice, the colors are good, no complaints.
Bronzer: This is actually quite nice. A good color and it you don't need a lot.
Glosses: The consistency is nice, most are a bit too light, but he medium tones I have used up.
I like that this is portable. It is great for weekend trips.
I would not purchase again, but i am glad to have tried it.

Having not really been too acquainted with using palettes before, I was tempted to try this one because I thought it was really cute and seemed to have a lot of variety...at first glance. I agree with the first reviewer of this product that a lot of the eyeshadows are somewhat similar on the lids (the lighter ones) and even the two darker plum shades are similar as well. IThis palette does hwoever have a nice smokey gray color. The black is a matte colored black that may be best used as a liner, but either way, I don't see myself reaching for more than 3-4 colors out of the 16 shades. The peachy blush is really cute and some of the glosses are really pretty also. Overall, I would not repurchase because I don't use even 1/2 of its contents.

Not bad, theres a ton of stuff to play around with. But the person below is right, it smells very burnt plastic, i have to breathe through my mouth when i open the l/g side. Kind of lame that the packaging is cardboard.

I actually really enjoy this product. My aunt bought it for me for Christmas. I love the eyeshadows, there are so many colors to choose from! I can experiment with lots of different shades. The highlighter, bronzer, and blush are life savers. They instantly make me glow when applied correctly. WARNING: NEVER APPLY BRONZER TO ENTIRE FACE--YOU MAY COME OUT ORANGE. Even though the blushes aren't big sizes, it's just meant as a little sample kit. I use my own brushes with these products, because the original brushes aren't that amazing. This palette is great when you're going on a date, and you want something in your purse so you can touch up quickly. It's a snap because of the mirrors and easy-to-open flip sides.

Okay, i picked up this palette after seeing it in the store but once I got it home it wasnt that exciting. First off this comes packaged in a white cardboard compact where one side opens to blush and glosses and the other to eyeshadows. Each side has its own mirror and crappy applicators. The package is 6 inches by almost 4 inches, and just shy of one inch wide.
The lipgloss side absolutely REEKS. the glosses have this overpowering burnt plastic mixed with sugar scent. Its repulsive every time I open this side. Inside is 12 mini glosses at .014 oz each. Most of the colors are just too cool pink for me. There is a sheer pink with glitter, sheer rose pink, sheer red with glitter, melon pink, sheer nude, hot pink simmer, baby pink, medium pink shimmer, soft pink pearl, sheer watermelon pink, hot pink, and beige pearl. The smell does fade after a few moments and they have a sugary taste. The colors are sheer but surprisingly show up.
There is also two blushes and a bronzer. The blushes are a joke. The tinest compartments i have seen. I wish they would have taken out a few pink glosses and made these bigger since they are very pretty. You get a peach blush and rosey tawny shimmer highlighter shade. Its kinda hard to use them separately so i just mix them together. The bronzer is a nice soft tan shimmer. Overall, these are really nice. Last all day with no breakouts.
Finally you get 16 shadows. You get soft pale peach, soft beige shimmer, soft golden pinky-peach, soft plum shimmer, lilac, silver, rich plum, matte black, matte ivory, soft pale green shimmer, soft pink with silver glitter, baby pink, white pearl, soft taupe-beige sheen, and gunmetal sheen. THe shadows are nicely pigmented and go on nicely but you do have to blend the few darker colors more. I think the weirdest thing about this is that with 16 shades, I felt like i should have more variety. With all the colors in here the lighter shades are kinda similiar on the lid. The four darker shades are just purple, black and grey, wish there was a brown, green, navy.
Overall, I think the quality is pretty good for $38. My biggest complaints are the horrible scent, mini blushes and similiar shadows. Because I have so much stuff I dont think i am keeping this. The scent just turns my stomach so i wont reach for it but its not a bad deal.
