I am loving this palette. It is buttery smooth, very little fall out and pigmented. The color story is very cohesive and well thought out and can provide a multitude of different looks both warm and cool toned and even some neutral looks as well. I think this new extra large pan size is really nice. I think it is a added plus that you get a mini big ego mascara as well. Great for the price. I have really enjoyed this new big ego mascara too, it is lifting, curling, volumizing and lengthening. This might be my new favorite mascara, I usually use Lancome monsier big but I like the dryer formula of the big ego one and I love the volume and length I am experiencing. I am so glad I purchased this. I wore it for 12 hours straight with just concealer as eye primer with no creasing at all and no fading either. Also a great beginner palette for someone that doesn't have many eyeshadows since this does contain all kinds of shades with pops of color. Also very blendable, I didn't have any problems with the hawkward shade, I think it is supposed to be like a topper or sheer which I think is perfect for highlighting the brow bone and inner corner which is how I use it when i pack it with my finger it seems to pack a punch just fine. All in all, a great buy and I would definitely recommend.
