The shades range from a pearl shimmer, to a matt taupe and the blackest black I've ever owned! All the colours are super pigmented and I've worn these with and without primer and has great colour pay off and staying power either way, but they will last much longer with a primer to cling too.
I stay out regularly so I'm always carting my makeup around with me, so the packaging of the palette is great for transport. I've dropped this pallet soooooo many times, my heart beating in my chest when i open it to see if I've brown any shades, but up to now it has taken these batterings on the chin. It also has a HUGE mirror which is brilliant for on the go applications!
EVERY shade in this pallet is stunning, but I often reach for half baked, a bronze shimmer shade, perfect for brightening the entire eye area.
Pistol is one of my favourite of the darker shades on the pallet as I find it works well with my blue eyes, but all the colours in the pallet will suit all eye colours, especially brown eyes.
It comes with a double ended applicator brush, which I must say, is pretty darn good. One side is a flat brush, perfect for packing on lots of colour, while the other end is a super fluffy blending brush which does an amazing job for blending the perfect smokey eye!
