This palette seems to have everything in it, including a full sized eyeshadow primer. 

The eyeshadow primer is great, it works well and has such a pigmented colour of its own.

The bronzer highlight duo is very pretty and pigmented on its own. It really is pretty. The highlighter is matte and goes on a bit chalky on my arm but looks nice on the face. I like that with all the shimmer out there they give a matte option. 

The shadows go on smoothly, my hand does them no justice. The black is the only one that went on a bit chalky, it is also the only matte one. The rest are either shimmery or satiny. I love the pigmentation of the shadows.

The glosses are nicely pigmented and a little sticky. I don't find them crazy sticky, but pretty sticky non the less. 

This is a nice contrast to the Black Tie set, which shadows are all brown or black. There is such a pretty variety of shades.

Great variety of colours
Matte highlighter is a nice change
Bronzer and highlighter duo are gorgeous
Full sized eyeshadow primer
Pigmented glosses
Good price

Glosses are a bit sticky
matte highlighter and black shadow are a bit chalky

This is a great palette for giving to someone who might be a bit afraid of colour, it has such a variety of shades they can play around and get comfortable with colour. I pretty much love this palette, I really think for the price it is a great deal.

I plan on putting two looks up tomorrow that use this palette.
