Amazing quality and deal. Beautiful shades
The palette came packaged within two large pieces of crumpled paper and did not arrive broken. The shades are stunning, and very metallic and pigmented. They look glittery in the pan, but when swatched, are buttery and don't have huge chunks of glitter. HOWEVER, I think the issue with some people and the mixed reviews on seeing glitter all depends on your method of application. If you swatch heavily and use a denser brush, it will be super metallic and not chunky. But if you accidentally add too much and try to blend it out and diffuse it too much, most pigment will go away and you will be left with specks of VERY fine glitter. I assume that's what makes it so beautiful and sparkly, but they aren't huge chunks. I feel like if I were to use a fluffy brush like a fan brush with a lighter hand, you're more prone to seeing that fine "glitter". You will also see this fine glitter if you rub it off or try to tone it down with your hands. If you want a "natural, lit from within" look, you'll just be left with fine glitter and it probably won't be your best purchase. But this is definitely the perfect palette for high quality, smooth, beautiful colors with high intensity for an amazing price!
