I received this as a gift and was a little hesitant to use it at first because eyeshadow palettes tend to have less pigmentation than their single counterparts, but the pigmentation of most of the colors in this palette are actually pretty good. The ease of use though varies for some of the colors though; some are silkier than others, some are really chalky, and some are so sheer it can be a little disappointing unless you love sheer coloration. There's a good mix of matte and shimmer shadows included and each of the 5 palettes has a good range of light to dark shades, great for creating depth! The eyeshadows don't have much lasting power on their own, so I definitely recommend an eyeshadow primer underneath them. I use Victoria's Secret Lasting FX Eyeshadow Primer and it works well underneath these, without feeling heavy.
In each of the 5 pop-out palettes there is also a white or off-white that's very similar to each other that some people would think they're just dupes, but if you travel often and pop the palettes into the included travel case, the included highlighter shadow in each of the 5 palettes is actually a great idea for those who take these palettes on the go. I know I do!
I don't have great things to say about the lip glosses/colors included in this palette; most of the glosses don't stay glossy very long to begin with, and they're pretty sticky. During storage, the lip pots tend to catch eyeshadow fallout too and it's not fun cleaning it out, so I don't even bother! The only lip colors I use that are actually pretty good are the reds; they're not drying, and they're very opaque!
Perhaps my favorite thing about this palette is the blushes; there are enough colors to create not just a single blush look for each palette, but to use all of them to contour the face. They're silky with either the finger or the brush, you pick up just enough to lightly layer it on your face. And the blush shade variation is a good range, for whether you want a dramatic contour or a light pop of color.
My least favorite thing about this palette is the quality of the packaging. I love that it's a 5-in-1 palette and that you can pop any one palette into a portable palette for when you're on the go, so in fact the packaging design is very ergonomic. But the security of the latches is very poor! For one, the large palette casing doesn't close properly because the snap closure itself, SNAPPED. Likewise, all of the 5 palettes also have a plastic nib that's supposed to secure it to the larger case; all 5 of their nibs snapped, so while they can all sit in their wells in the larger case, they're not secured and can fall out if I don't handle the palette carefully. The only piece of this palette of which the hinge hasn't snapped is the travel case. Fortunately, it's the one reason why I still use this palette. It's still a great travel piece despite the poor packaging quality.
