I didn't even want this palette, my cousin got it for me as a birthday present, and I'm so glad he did, because this palette is gorgeous. I've been a little wary of Too Faced's quality lately, but the quality on this palette is wonderful and it restored my faith in the brand. The shadows almost remind me of cream shadows in the way they apply because of how pigmented they are, however, they're still powders. The shimmers are stunning, you can apply them with your finger or with brushes, the pigmentation with either application is about the same from what I've experienced. The shadows also don't have much fallout, which is always a plus.To be honest, the mattes aren't the best quality mattes out there, but they're still pretty good. The pigmentation of the matte shadows is good, not amazing, but they can be built up, and they all blend easily. It doesn't take much effort to make them work. I believe there are only four matte shades in this palette, and the rest are shimmers, which is okay with me. The matte shades they included work well as crease/outer corner shades to use with many of the shimmers. Also, I feel like most people already have transition colors to use with this palette if they need them. Oh, and like the other chocolate bar palettes, this palette smells amazing. This was my first ever chocolate bar palette, looks like I might just have to buy more. Well done Too Faced.
