I bought this along with a 120 palette and the 10 blush palette. The shimmers are great. As far as I can tell, the shimmer is throughout the color. I havent got to deep in the colors yet, but from what I can see its just enough shimmer. I have created such wonderful looks that I would never have done before b/c I have so many colors to choose from. The colors are pigmented and easy to blend. I would recommend this palette and any other palettes from BH to anyone that wants to experiment with colors or just have every color you can imagine at your fingertips. Try it out... you wont be disappointed.
