The first shade is a shimmery pale yellow.

The second shade is a shimmery silver.

The third shade is a shimmery steel grey.

The fourth shade is a deep black with multi-colored shimmer.

Really nice pigmentation overall in this palette. I liked all of these shades but the yellow one was especially pretty and cool looking.

The first shade is a very pale pink with a slight sheen.

The second is a rosy copper colored metallic.

The third is a deep reddish bronze metallic.

The fourth is a medium/deep brown with slight reddish shimmer.

I didn’t think some of these shadows were as pigmented as they could’ve been. The first and last weren’t that great. The middle two were really nice and in particular the third one.

The first shade is a shimmery pale lilac/silver.

The second shade is a medium pink/plum metallic. Very pigmented.

The third shade is a deep warm plum shimmer. Gorgeous and pigmented.

The fourth shade us a slightly shimmery black that was a wee bit patchy.

The first three shades here were the best in terms of texture and payoff. I think the middle two are gorgeous shades and make blue/grey eyes like mine really stand out. I love these colors of shadows paired with Urban Decay Rockstar liner (one of my all-time favorite liners!)

The first shade is a shimmery warm yellow/gold.

The second is a metallic warm copper, very pigmented.

The third is a metallic warm medium brown/copper. Nicely pigmented also.

The fourth is a medium warm brown matte that wasn’t very pigmented.

Because of the first three shades I really love this set. The fourth shade was a bummer because it was so hard to get to show up. But the others were all really amazing.

Overall: Aside from how cute these look, they are pretty great overall. They are small and light enough to easily pack or pop in your purse. Most of the shades are pigmented and felt soft. It seems for most of these except the first one they fourth shade is the trouble-maker. The darker ones tends to be chalkier and not as nicely pigmented as the rest.

Availability: Ulta exclusive.

Pricing: $30.00 and each palette is 0.17 oz.

What do you think about this set of palettes? Do you love any of these colors?
