Love this palette. It's definitely had a learning curve and needs a bit of work around though. All the shadows are shimmery, but the shimmer doesn't adhere well to the skin, so they are prone to lots of fall out. It usually not as bad if I tap the brush off before applying to my eyes. These work best with synthetic brushes, Real Techniques in particular. I've had others from elf, coastal scents, wet n wild brushes, but none of them pick up and hold the shadow and apply the shadow with full colour payoff as Real Techniques brushes. I have to go really light hand especially with the darker shades, they surely pack a punch and can look like a bruise if I'm not careful. All colors in the palette are of different shades and tones of purple and violets, they vary enough to not blend into one muddy shade yet still compliment each other beautifully. Plus, I have yellow-olive undertones and brown eyes, so these just pop on me like no other. Even the top left shade that people say is a white that does nothing is a sheeny, duochrome white with nearly metallic lilac shift on me, which works as a really eye catching pop on the lid. My lids are very thin and veiny, as well as being oily and hooded monolids, so I always use them over a base but honestly the pigmentation of them doesn't need help. They do crease and fade on me without primer, only after a few hours in a very hot, humid day; with primer they last through a hurricane without fading or creasing, but I still get the shimmer fall out at the end of the day. The shimmer in these shadows are nice and fine though, so thankfully they're not noticeable. My favorite shade is the eyelid shade on the right, it's a brown mauve with subtle gold shimmer running through it, perfect as an all over the lid color, and the crease colour right below it. They're just the kind of purple tones that I like, the others work just fine but they're more blue-pink based and cool tones, while I prefer the slightly burgundy, cranberry tone and muted mauve. I actually bought this palette after watching many tutorials from gorgeous people is much deeper skin tones but similar undertones to me (the undertones of light skin people often get lost in the bright lighting), so I'm sure with a primer these would turn out just fine on darker skin tones. I just bought the Comfort Zone, the quality of both palettes are the same, but I doubt I'll grow to love it more than Petal Pusher, because the purple tones flatter me so nicely. It's a great drugstore palette overall, despite being a rather old release. If you're willing to work a little, pick it up before WetnWild suddenly decides to discontinue it one day. This is the best drugstore purple shadows that I have, even over the NYX shadows I'm so partial to. WetnWild just did these purples right.
