This palette is a good starter palette for any aspiring MUA out there. Its supposed to have 88 pots/pans of MATTE eyeshadows but there are 7 pans that I counted in my palette that were shimmer. Overall in the quality of the pigmentation its not very high in quality at all. There is alot of fallout and is very chalky. To get the true color of the pigment with less fallout you have to apply with a damp brush and also use an eyeshadow primer. This is what has worked best for me. There is a wide variety and good mixture of colors, from primary and secondary colors to warm and cool tones and I liked that. The case is very thin and flimsy. But overall I will still continue to use it. The size of each eyeshadow pan is about the size of a dime or a tiny bit smaller. I purchased thru hautlook.com for 15.00. On the crownbrush website it retails for 19.95.

Some shadows are really nice and pigmented but a lot are chalky with no color pay off. Kinda sad :( But, I find if i PACK the colors they are alright. really nice color range, average lasting power. can't beat the price though :)
