I bought this palette second hand so I don't have the lookbook it comes with and the eyeliner was pretty much done too. There was and still is plenty of shadow for me to play around with though!
This comes in pretty basic packaging. The whole palette is actually made of cardboard. It is quite thick though and doesn't feel flimsy at all. I do feel for the price, the packaging should be better. In saying that though, these in the... palettes are discontinued now. I think they have redone the colours slightly and put them in better packaging too so that's a bonus. This has a decent magnetised lid and when you open it up, you will see the beautiful shadows and also a small mirror.
The shadows in here are beautiful to just look at. You get some mattes and shimmers, neutrals and a bit of colour, darks and lights. I feel like you have a really good 10 colours to work with to make all kinds of different looks from very basic nude eyes to full on smokey clubbing eyes. I've really enjoyed playing around with this palette and have not been bored at all while using this every day for almost a month. My favourite colour in this is probably Bliss. It's just a light dusky, matte pink but it makes a beautiful transition shade for pretty much any look and I think I've used this every day. This palette also features a very highly talked about Stila shadow which is Kitten. It's a very shimmery, champagne colour. It is of course beautiful all over the lid. I also love sunset, which is a warm pinky shimmer that I use all over the lid as well.
You get a generous amount of each shadow, 1.4gms. I do have slight dips in a couple of shades but I'm no where near hitting pan yet. These are all quite powdery though so you need to tap off the excess before applying, I don't have any issue with fallout as long as I tap first. They all blend out really nicely and last well on my lid as long as I wear primer (I have slightly hooded lids so any shadow creases on me if I don't wear primer!). The colour in the pan is generally what you get on your lid too, with the exception of gilded gold. This colour looks like a glittery brown in the pan but I get a more red brown colour on my lid. I still like the colour, it just doesn't look the same as in the palette.
I do think this is a gorgeous palette, I would definitely recommend it especially if you don't have many neutral palettes. It can be found on special on some sites, you just might need to look around or google it to find a stockist.
