My Thoughts
The packaging of this palette is quite colorful with gem and crystal images on it. The cardboard packaging is thin and large but still is very light weight though not very travel friendly. There is no mirror inside which would have added the bulk. The palette contains good selection of shades having diversity and different finishes. Overall the shades texture is very good with few of them with bit of powdery formula. Some of the metallic needs to be applied with damp brush for better application and some mattes need layering for good color payoff. Let's talk about each shade separately.
