Edit 10/06/16: I got my blockbuster 2016 today in the mail yay!! I ordered 2 more lip brushes didn't realize I only can find one I swear I have like 4. -$18 :-( but I've got all the other necesssary "tools." This comes with a card that gives you tips on using this. That's cool! This palette is soooo awesome I'd put it on a par w 2015! You know you need this palette. It has over $275 worth of MU! The top flips up then you can side the slides out on the left is the lipgloss & on the right is the gel eyeliner w the blushes. I've been playing around w it some it's a fun palette! I'm not going to get bored of this very easily. ;-) I'm getting 2017 for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!---Original review: Apparently Sephora comes out w a mega type ("Blockbuster") palettes every Fall in anticipation of the holiday season. I have 2015 & I've got 2016 on order. These are an amazing deal for $50 & they have the 2015 palettes for $30 right now, can't go wrong there! The Ulta sets out regularly for $25 are nothing compared to Sephora's blockbuster(s), my 2015 is much higher quality than any Ulta MU. I have a couple of Ulta palettes hanging around I might get one at Xmas. I like those massive sets. But they are a rip off at Ulta for $50 I will only pay $25 I can't wait to get my Sephora 2016 blockbuster in the mail. I will update. If you have some extra pocket change buy this!! Coz 2015 was epic the quality was much better than I had anticipated. Sephora is pretty high quality I prefer Sephora to Ulta in 99% of everything. This will make any tween, teen or qween happy to find this under the tree. I love the selection of colors, so many options.

Its cheap and offers a bunch of nice colours to experiment and play around with - but that's all that it should be used for. Playing and experimenting. Some of the eyeshadows are hardly pigmented while others are deeply hued. I haven't bothered with the sheer lipglosses because they won't show up again my dark lips, but I do love the blushes and I wear them out.

Good things:1. Cheap2. Many colorsBad things:1. Did not last long2. The shadow can be easily wiped out when you applying another color onto another color. To overcome, need to dab the color on the lid many times.

I bought this product on sale for $25.00, it was half-off. It's not the best quality but it's definatley not the worst. Over all I'm really happy with this product. It's very fun to mess with and the eye shadows are wonderful. It has many fun colors but also lots of neutrals to use daily. The blushes show perfectly on my skin and are very pretty colors.

I really wanted to have the Sephora blockbuster this year after seeing it online, even though the reviews I read were not that super. I bought it anyway and I'm really glad I did! I bought it mainly for the eyeshadows which are beautiful and mostly really pigmented. It contains a broad range of colors and finishes. The only downside is that some of the eyeshadows are quite loose so you have to be a bit careful if you don't want eyeshadow everywhere.The lipglosses are okay, not great but good enough to finish your look and nice to try if you're not sure which lipcolors suit you.The blushers are suitable for most skin colors and very nice and long-lasting, but one (the lightest) is quite loose as well, which makes it a bit messy. The eyeliners are really creamy and nice to work with and the eye pencils work well too. I haven't tried the mascara yet. The brushes suck, but I also didn't expect anything from those!It's a good buy if you, like me, are into the eyeshadows and like to have a wide variety of colors in 1 palette. The other things in it are nice extras.

Just recieved mine in the mail (btw Sephora ships fast) anyway I did a lot of research as I do with any purchase and the responses were mixed. So I took the chance and I'm happy I did the colors are very pretty and swatch out pretty close to the displayed color. The lip gloss also was more pigmented than I expected it to be with colors from pink to blue!Also the gel liners were wonderful going on nice and smooth and has good staying power the watch didn't come off all day even after washing my hands numerous times. Needless to say that it was a great deal! Sorry that the blockbuster palettes weren't nice the last few years guess they got the memo because they di a pretty good job!!!

I can't say how this (2011 palette) compares to the previous ones, but I've just bought the new one recently and so far I love it! There are a few issues here and there, but nothing that would make or break the palette for me.The colors are really gorgeous, and many of them are things I would not normally buy. But if they start to scare me a bit or I don't feel they're appropriate for a certain day, there are plenty of beautiful neutrals to choose from that can give me a more toned down look. All the shadows I've tried so far have great color payoff, and last well on my oily lids even without primer. The only problem is that the more shimmery colors have MASSIVE fallout. The worst that I've ever seen in an eyeshadow. The eyshadows are soft, just a step above loose pigments, so not all of it sticks to your lids. The easiest solution to this is to apply it in little bits at a time and not load your brush up with a lot of product at once, then pat it on your lid instead of sweeping it across. All the fallout can also easily be swept away with a big fluffy brush, and/or covered up with your foundation or concealer.As for the lip glosses...they all look great in the packaging, and some of them look okay on the lips, but it takes A LOT of product in order for the colors to show up at all, and that is a bit disappointing. So far the blushes are a similar story, but I'm going to keep playing with them and see if I can get them to show up more.I've tried one of the gel liners, and so far I like it. It's not the darkest one I've ever tried, but it gets the job done, and looks perfect if set with the one matte black eyeshadow that comes with the set. The mascara doesn't do much for my lashes other than darken them, and I have yet to try the pencil liner.All in all, this is a great palette, especially for the price. I was revamping my makeup collection after throwing out old products I wasn't using anymore, and this is a great start. I bought it primarily for the eyeshadow, and for that reason, I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and pleased that the other products in the kit are not a total let down. This thing is worth almost $500, and is selling at less than $50. What have you go to lose?

I LIKE, not love, this palette. Works well with a cream primer. If not better wet. Difficult to blend at times. It does take more care and effort to apply. Pat on for best results. I almost use everyday. So many colors. Lipsticks are nice and vibrant. They last long. Have tried blushes. Gel liners=amazing!!!Pencil liners were like crayons.

Horrible product! Was so excited to get home and try it, but once i did it was only a dissapointment. The colors did not go on well at all, not even with a primer. Had horrible fallout, but most of all i regret spending $80 on it. So eventually i gave it to my mom, and she doesnt even use it.

I was really excited to get this product because there were so many shadows/lip glosses included. After I bought it and tried it on at home, however, the quality was just horrible! The shadows weren't that pigmented even with primer. They didn't stay on that long and just pretty much faded quickly. I was going to return it but my mom ended up wanting it so I ended up giving it to her to replace her old palette. I was extremely dissatisfied with this palette.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
