Shadows range from mattes, to metallics, to subtle shimmers. Even most mattes have a few micro shimmers in them. And the shades are all complex, with shifting changes in color. Lovely textured shadows, that apply and blend beautifully. A lot of lighter shades in the palette though you get plenty of darker and mid toned ones.
This palette is big! And limited edition.
The different finishes and color gradients make creating illusions of depth on the eye lid easier.
