Awesome palette! Honestly I didn't believe all the hype about BH having really pigmented formulas, so I had to try it out myself. They were right! For being such an inexpensive palette, the colors truly have some amazing pigment. They pick up very easily on the brush, and effortlessly apply to the lids. No need to swirl your brush in the pan, a couple taps will pick up plenty of color. Honestly, not much fall out either! A little tap or blow on your brush can also help avoid that. There's a small amount of kick back in the pans, nothing extreme. Less than most palettes that have similar pigmentation. The shadows also blend with hardly any effort! Into the skin, and into other shadows they transition easily. I also just love that the top palette can fit right onto the top of the compact so you can easily see all of your color options. The palette is super sleek as well! In my opinion the only downside to the palette is the repetitive colors. I do like that most colors have atleast a couple transition shades, but most of them swatch similar. On a better note, won't be running out any time soon! I just wish they would have used those areas where they have repetitive colors to add some additional shades! Maybe even glitter shades! Another downfall of the palette is that most, if not all of the shades have a satin finish. Not a whole lot of color selections for matte shades, if any. I would have rated 5 stars if they had more mattes! And last but not least, I ordered my palette directly from BH cosmetics website. I received a few of my items damaged, this being one of them. It did have a layer of bubble wrap inside of the palette itself, but other than that it was packaged in packing paper. Customer service did however offer me a replacement which is great!
