This palette is seriously one of the most unique palettes I have ever used. I say this because it is meant to be used with your fingers in what they call a stamp and set process. Meaning you pick up the color you want with your finger and press it all over your eye lid (stamping) and then when you are done with your eyeshadow look you set it with the translucent setting powder it comes with. I tried using this palette with both my finger and brush and i found that it works 10x better when applied with your finger. Also the setting powder really does make your shadow stay on your lid better as well. The colors are so pigmented and beautiful i just cant even. I recommend this to anyone who loves using their fingers to apply makeup.
