this is my second time getting this set. They updated the colors. I really like this kit for the price. Since I don't wear make-up everyday it's nice to have such an assortment of colors! i would suggest buying it for the casual make-up user. It is NOT professional grade! Be sure to wear primer for a longer wear!
Just like all the Balm powder products, these eye shadows are highly pigmented & blend smoothly. I find it difficult to get a complete eye look from just this palette however since most of the shadows are shimmery. I use it in conjunction with one of the Meet Matte Nude palettes to rev up my look for night time or special occasions. If you love shimmer & are ok with an entire shimmery eye look, this palette is your jam. You can get subtle daytime looks or very smoky looks from this palette. If you prefer all matte, probably best to skip this one. The shades range from light shimmery pinks to deep shimmery burgundy & plum. There is even a beautiful yellow & bronze. Nice combo of warm & cool, light & dark. If it had more midtone mattes it would be the perfect stand alone palette.
I have never ordered cosmetics sight unseen, so I was a bit apprehensive about this one but decided to go ahead and order. I was pleasantly surprised. The colors are beautiful and it only takes a touch of the brush to pick up enough product to do the job. There is a lot of pigment in the powder and the color/coverage stays true all day. I am a huge fan of this shadow now and will most likely order other Shany products when they are available.
