When I spotted this palette at my local Ulta I just knew I had to buy it. The only reason I hadn't gotten it before was because it was only available online. The price of this product is normally $14.50 (US), but I bought this for $11 with a coupon. This product includes 10 shadows ranging from mattes to shimmers and four highlighters that can grow in warmth as you go across. The shadows range from matte to shimmer and are all centered around an earthy color palette. Along with the shadows and highlighters this palette includes a nice sized mirror. (No brush of any kind was included.)

- There was a good bit of fall out when I put my brush in the pan to get out some product. My best solution is to spray your brush with either Mac Fix+ or some water just to get the shadow to stick.
- Some of the pigment fell beneath my eyelid and onto my face even with a primer. Really the only way you can avoid this problem is by doing your eye makeup before your actual face makeup so that you can wipe off any excess without problem.
- It creases after a few hours of wear*. I have tried different primers, but nothing seems to change the fact that some of these shadows (mostly the shimmers) seem to crease after 3ish hours. If you have any suggestions please leave them below. (*this may be because I have oily lids)

Overall this product works very well, especially for the price which in my opinion is very cheap. Even with the small creasing problem, I'd totally say that you should check this palette out. The pigmentation is pretty great and the highlighters stand out, plus everything blends well.
