This is one palette that I feel is a staple in my collection. It is one that I recommend to so many that are just starting out their collection. This is fantastic neutral palette, but still has some sass due to the packaging. The shadows are not extremely pigmented, but that is good with this kind of palette. They are pigmented enough that you don’t have to pack on shadows forever. But you are not overwhelmed with extreme pigmentation! The mattes blend very well and the shimmers go on without needing a setting spray. If you are just starting out in the makeup world, or even just love neutral shadows that preform very well...I highly recommend this palette!
