This palette is one of the best neutral palette out there. The colors are beautiful. They are neutral, not boring, blend well and work together. You can create simple looks as well as a smokey eye. You can create office appropriate looks as well as looks for going out. It's not my only palette, but when I pull it out I know that I will get a great look. It's simple to combine colors, they go on creamy, and fallout is minimal for all shades except for perhaps Sidecar. You get 12 shades in all, listed below. You also get a velvety case that closes magnetically. There's a mirror. Also, you get a Good Karma shadow brush which is very high quality. I actually keep it in my brush case, not in the palette (there's a place where you can put that or a liner) because I use it to apply all my shadows. Tip: Pat the shadows on lightly, don't sweep. That minimizes fallout and enhances pigmentation.Colors include:Virgin: Pretty, shimmery whitish pink shade. Good for the inner corner.Sin: Champagne pink - great lid shadeNaked: Matte beige color. My favorite "transition color" to blend out the edges of my crease color. I actually have this one in a single too.Sidecar: Beige with glitter. This can have fallout if you are not careful. I tend to use this on the inner half of my eye with Half Baked or inner third of my eyelid with Sin in the middle and Toasted on the outer third.Buck: Matte medium brown. I use this one to blend the lid colors into the crease and use it under my crease color.Half Baked: Yellowy gold with shimmer. This is a great lid color.Smog: Shimmery medium-dark warm brown. This is the best crease color. I have this one in a single because I love it so much. It's not too dark, not too light.Darkhorse: Dark brown matte with glitter (I think that's a good description). I use this in the corner to deepen the crease color.Toasted: Pretty medium pink. It works well with Sin on the lid. I like to put Sin on the inner half and Toasted on the outer half.Hustle: Purple tinged pink. I like this one with Toasted on the lid (Toasted on the inner half, Hustle on the outer half) or by itself on the lid. It also works in the crease, particularly with Sin as the lid color.Creep: Very dark grey color. I don't use this much but it's great for a smokey eye, especially when used along with Gunmetal to deepen the crease.Gunmental: Shimmery gunmetal grey. I use the browns more than the grays, but this looks good with the pinker colors - Sin, Toasted, and Hustle.Pigmentation is great. Color lasts all day. I always use it with a primer (you get a mini-sized Urban Decay Primer Potion with this palette!), as I do with all of my eyeshadow. I wouldn't say it's the most exciting palette I own (there's no real pop of color here) but your eyes WILL look beautiful, the colors blend well, it's pretty much foolproof... So if you're looking for the perfect, versatile palette, you need this palette (or Naked2, which is reportedly cooler)
