What are you getting?
This palette comes with 16 full sized eye-shadows (a single eyeshadow usually costs about $17, the whole package costs about $64), 10 of which are brand new to the collection. It also comes with:
-a mini SuperCurl mascara in black
-a mini 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner in Perversion (carbon black)
-a mini primer potion
-and a little keychain speaker which you can hook up to your PC to charge using the USB cable (included) and plug it into any headphone jack for big sound. It's a funny quirky little add-on, but I like it. Makes the package extra special.

Now onto the products.

Eyeshadows:
The eyeshadows are typical UD. They're really well pigmented, and the colours are very striking. There are some colours that are so absolutely gorgeous, with the perfect hint of shimmer. They not only call attention to themselves due to their gorgeousness, they also draw attention to my eyes and make them look sexy and sparkly. Gravity (shimmery purple), Lost (shimmer bronzy brown), Baked (shimmery forest green), Cobra (shimmery dark brown), Midnight Rodeo (shimmery bronzy gold), Hijack (shimmery teal) are a few of my absolute favourites. I also love Sin (which is one of the oldies but goldies), it makes a great all over lid colour, and is perfect for a sweet and simple look (great for pinup type looks too). Other colours include Blue Bus (a navy blue), Gunmetal (everyones fav gray), Bender (beigy browny colour), Midnight Cowgirl (shimmery peach), Crystal (shimmery silver-blue), Bust (gold), Missionary (beingy mauve-ish), Skimp (yellow beige) and Zephyr (white). All of which are gorgeous, pigmented, and works great alone or mixed. I'm not a huge fan of mixing eyeshadows and creating 3D looks. They're great for sometimes, but most of the time I prefer one great colour wash all over my lid. Any of these shadows look amazing as a wash. They have so much colour, dept and dimension that you don't have to put extra effort and extra colours to get a great look. I strongly recommend using the primer potion that comes with the box to ensure there's no fallout. Otherwise you get pigmented fallout on your cheeks - not good! The colours are really truly gorgeous. They really are perfect on their own, and despite the shimmer, I find they can be worn everyday without looking too much or overdone. The only downsides are there are no matte options (almost everything is shimmery), and several of the colours have quite a bit of fallout if you don't use them with the primer.

Liquid Eyeliner:
I always thought liquid eyeliner was liquid eyeliner, and would always buy the cheap NYC brand liners. Well, after trying the UD 24/7 liquid eyeliner I definitely stand corrected. This liner goes on so smooth, thin, precise, and stays on all day and all night. It stays on for a crazy long time, especially good for the oily lid sisters. The colour is so vibrant, it really is a huge difference to cheapo-liner girls like me. Did I mention it lasts? It lasts all day, all night, up until I take it off with eye makeup remover. It keeps the vibrancy, and lasts and lasts. Incredible.

Mascara:
The mascara is teeny, but it's gorgeous. Really makes my lashes look thick and curled, and lasts all day.

You're wondering what's up with the speakers...? They're so you can use your smartphone to scan the barcode included in this palette, view the 5 makeup videos that come with this palette, and hear the videos via the speakers. The speakers are really pretty and pack a good quality sound considering their size! It's a really cute little something that adds fun to this already awesome package.

If you can't tell already, I highly recommend this palette to everyone. All girls need an everyday glam shimmer gorgeous colour palette :-)
