What they say:
Superb colors in a mix of shimmer, pearl and matte! This 26 pc combo set contains colors in nearly nude, to browns, taupes, peaches, pinks, rose and rich deep plums. We do not offer another color palette that can compare to this one in shades.

The first 3 blush shades from the left are matte, the 4th has shimmer and the last deep plum has a slight shimmer effect. I have actually used a few of the shadows as a blush with great results.
The color payoff is incredible and they blend well creating very alluring looks from deep and sexy to light and ready for office day wear.

My take:
I love this palette. The colours are beautiful and super pigmented. Although there are still a variety of neutral tones and colours, they have added some beautiful golds, taupes, mauves and corals. I especially love the corals! They are beautiful and i think they will make for great summer looks! I think there is a good mix between shimmer and matte and by having both in the same palette, it really gives you great versatality in choosing whether you want a neutral everyday look or a shimmery night time look. The blushes are pretty and so much more pigmented then any i've ever used! the swatches do seem a bit scary, but if applied with a light hand and blended well, they are just gorgeous! The dark plum blush however, seem a bit too dark for me for everyday wear.. but i think it'll make a good blush for nights out :) andd.. the lightest blush is too light for me.. but i think i'll use it to mix with to get the desired color and tone i want. :)

Overall, i really like this palette! Although i know i say i love all of my palettes (which i do!), i think this one is most suitable for travelling because it includes both eyeshadows and blushes. :) have you guys tried out this palette before? what do you think of the colours?
