Just a beautiful and versatile little palette! The quality of the shadows in this palette is simply exquisite and the colors are varied enough that you can do a nice, laid-back daytime look, but still easily take it to a smokier nighttime look using the darkest shade. All the shades are shimmery, but the even the darker glittery shade comes off as more of a satin finish on the lid. The best way to describe it is a 'grown up shimmer'. The best thing about this palette though, is how easily the shadows blend together, it makes using it basically goof proof.
