Most of these shades are phenomenal, but there is an orangey red shade, I believe it was called Fireball, that has a very weird texture. It's almost waxy and takes a little work to get it on the brush. I end up having to use my finger and layer it on. It's not just the surface, if you scratch through, it's like that all the way through. Just very strange. The other shades are absolutely gorgeous, so no complaints there! There is a dark red color that is my favorite shade of any shadow from any palette! It is perfect for green eyes and it's unbelievable how much it makes my eye color pop! These are bigger than the mac shadows, so it's actually a pretty good value for the price. I've been using the red shade almost daily for about a year and haven't even made a dent in it!
