I love these shadows beyond belief and am so sorry they are being discontinued. I will state though, having read some of the other comments, they work best on someone with dark hair, dark eyes and very pale skin. This is my coloring so I can say honestly that this palette makes my eyes just "POP"; I usually do a light eye with a deeper lip and have found the green really adds a nice glint to the lid. Now as for those who prefer Dior to Chanel, I worked for Christian Dior Cosmetics in the past and loved their shadows, but Chanel shadows are just as lovely. Dior used to also do sheer textured shadows, but stopped those many years back. If you are looking for a shadow palette that has intense color, this will not work for you. All the colors in this palette are sheer, pearly and meant to be layered and blended. A sort of Impressionistic approach to shadow, so to speak. When I used to think of doing a make-up on someone for their wedding day, this was always a go to palette, with an eye-shadow base used first though. Actually for anyone who wants more oomph out of this palette, definitely use a shadow base first, it makes a world of difference.
