This is the perfect make up kit to get if you are new to make up, my best friend got this kit and she is very happy with it. You have everything you need in there for a complete makeover. We love to do make overs on each other , it's a lot of fun.
This was the last Sephora palette I purchased - and I purchased 4 previously. I thought this was going to be way better quality but there were really only a handful of eyeshadows that I really enjoyed the colour/application of, and I've still not used the eyeliner. I mostly just play with the lip gloss, of which there is a ton. Other than that, I have been skeptical to purchase another like this since.
I used to LOVE it when Sephora came out with these palettes. They've always been a great value and you get so many different products. However, I've found that the quality has really gone down with this product. I was really excited when I bought it but I found it was kind of cheaply made. The eyeshadows are OK, a little on the dry side. The eye primer didn't work for me; my makeup still creased. The blushes are so small, it's difficult to get the product on a blush brush. And the plastic casing itself isn't made very well. I think this is the last Sephora palette I'll purchase. I'd rather spend more for better quality products as opposed to a ton of mediocre products.
The price for the quantity was excellent. I dont know why, but I feel that the quality of the product doesn't meet the usual standard of Sephora. I would not buy it again because it is an endless product, the quantity is so high that it is not something I would need to renew. I didn't manage to use the liquid eyeliner and the lip balm is not useful in this format, because you need to put it on again during the day but this is way too big to keep in a bag. So, doing touch up is unthinkable. Still, I dont regret buying it, it was worth it but now I buy smaller packages that can be carried in my bag.
What it does:
This limited-edition palette lets you create virtually any look. Its high-quality formulas are divided into two categories for easy application: warm tones on the right and cool tones on the left. In celebration of the fifth anniversary of Sephora's Blockbuster launch, 13 new products have been added making this the biggest collection yet.
This set contains:

- 4 x applicators
All the colours you could possibly want in ONE box
All the colours are well organized so are easy to find
The eyeshadows are average sized
Almost all of the colours are very vibrant and pigmented
They're not too glittery (more of a shine than glitter)
They last all night on me
Can be used as eyeliner
They don't flake onto my cheeks
All the colours you can possibly want and MORE (blue lipstick!? COOL!!)
Nicely organized so the colours you're looking for are easy to find
Lasts a long time
Has proper lipstick consistency (good coverage)
Comes with a usable lipstick brush
Some of the lighter shades (e.g. white, silver) aren't well pigmented
The brushes aren't any good, so you'll have to use your own
There's no real "black" eyeshadow in there, but the dark blue is VERY dark
Isn't moisturizing so if you have dry lips and don't moisturize properly, your lips may peel
All in all I LOVE this palette! The biggest tip I have for those who want to try it is invest in some GOOD QUALITY brushes! They make all the difference in the world. When I first brought home this palette I used my crappy Posh brushes (Pharma Plus brand brushes), and the colours looked so weird, streaky and grainy..not soft or smooth at all! I switched to my MAC brushes and the colours were delicious :-)
I would highly recommend this product to everyone! It's about $70 including tax, and considering the quality and number of items, it's definitely bang for the bucks.
