    The packaging is nice with a sturdy feeling palette with a magnetic clasp and a good size mirror in the lid. The palette consists of 14 eyeshadows (7 shimmer, 4 satin and 3 matte) and a double ended brush. The brush has one end which is domed and the other angled. The palette is promoted as 14 shadows that can transform into 28 by using them either wet or dry. The six shadows on the left are cool-toned and the six on the right are warm-toned. They are divided by a black and white in the centre.

    The claim that you get 28 shadows from the 14 by using them either dry or wet is a little far-fetched as some of the “transformations” were negligible or even disappointing. Most eyeshadow palettes can be used both wet and dry although it is true that this palette handles the use of water better. After using a wet brush in the pan it then dried smooth with no trace water had ever been there.

    Overall I had mixed feelings about this palette. Whilst I do like a few of the colours, there is not enough to like about it to justify the entire palette. The shades I do like I can find in other palettes that I already have, so I ended up returning this one.

    I was really excited about this palette because so many people raved about it. I was quite disappointed with it.
    I don't find myself reaching for the shimmer shades at all. It's awesome that the ratio of the shimmer to matte shades is equal but I just don't find the pigment to be that great for the majority of the shadows.
    The shimmer shades, I find, are really just for adding sparkle, they are not very pigmented. The matte shades, I tried using for a while but I found them a bit chalky with quite a bit of fall out. I tend to use this palette more for my brows than anything at the moment.

    I wanted to love it but it ended up being an average palette.

    I purchased one of these palettes last week and I LOVE IT! The colour stayed true throughout my work day and didn't smudge or crease. My only complaint would be that I would have preferred a sponge brush included with the regular two sided brush. Other than that I am also in love with the selection of neutral earth tones which I tend to lean towards.

    I finally went through this palette and I am completely satisfied. The colours were creamy and super easy to apply and blend. All of the colours went well together too.

    This is my go to everyday palette. I love that it includes colours that easily transform from day to night looks and are beautifully pigmented. It's a great size, love the dual sided brush that is included and the large mirror, it makes taking this palette on vacation a breeze.

    I got this eyeshadow palette like two months ago and I really like the choice of colours. An amazing thing about this palette is that if you wet the eye shadows, the colours completely transform. The only downside to it is that the light colours are not that pigmented when their dry and tend to wear off throughout the day.

    I was lucky enough to buy this palette on sale. I think it's a limited edition palette because it's sold out like everywhere now! I adore it so much! The colors are so fun and sultry and it even came with mascara! The brush that came with the palette seems like really good quality too. Love it!!

    I also bought this palette on a whim when I was lookin for neutral matte eye shadows which apparently aren't that easy to find at Shoppers Drug Mart. I was given this and on a whim bought it and then had buyers remorse until I started using it and wow in love the colours! They are highly pigmented. Look amazing and I am so glad I bought it I use it absolutely every day.

    Bought this eyeshadow palette on a whim after not liking the one I was going to originally purchase. It has 14 eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry but I've only tried them dry so far. Comes with mini mascara and a dual ended brush.

    The eyeshadows are soft and smooth very easy to apply with no fallout and the brush is a great addition and the only one I use to apply these shadows
