This palette comes in medium peach cardboard packaging with art work of African figurines of moon and sun goddesses on it. It contains 16 vibrant to everyday shades with good range of warm and cool tones. The pans are quite big despite being mini version and i am sure they will last quite long. The downside was that there is no mirror inside which could have been huge plus. The palette is still large and in my opinion is not very travel friendly.
The shades are quite bold, perfect for any event and i think is quite a good pick for any bride to be, who wants to create different looks matching her daily outfit. The 6 mattes and 10 shimmery/frost shades makes it versatile and useful. On top of that the pigmentation is simply amazing. I was surprised to find that shades work way better with brushes on lids then swatching them on arm with fingers. They blend like dream and a little pick with brush can create quite an intense look. You will not have to hit the pan again and again to show the color on lids.

Overall this palette is really good for its quality and shade selection. The pigmentation is very intense with good formula except 2 shades which have little dry formula. There is fallout in dark shade so you better dust some powder below your eyes if you have done your face makeup before. Without any primer or base the shades work really good and last very very long. If you are looking for good quality palette with vibrant shades then this is definitely worth picking.
