Finely milled, with a slight sheen closer to Guerlain's Meteorites than most highlighters. The white is just that, a soft white that isn't metallic. The pink is even softer and lighter, a lovely cool glow. They're both so subtle I can't tell the difference on when I mix them.
Dior Glowing Gardens pink is warmer (peach/gold hint) and more metallic.
Camellia de Plumes is more metallic, silver, with a hint of warm gold.
Guerlain Meteorites is slightly more subtle.

The shimmer shade is silver/taupe and has that pigment in a sheer base look. It's less harsh/striking than a cooler silver...but light.
The next shade is a copper fawn if that makes sense. This and the other two have tiny micro glitter (the disco dust?) which add complexity and make them less boring...but it's very subtle. I saw gold green pink and copper in this shade.
The third shade is a warm peach copper and as a slight metallic sheen. I saw micro glitter in green pink copper and maybe blue and/or silver (very subtle...in sunlight only).
The last shade is a blackened brown, and cooler than the 2nd and 3rd shades . I saw hints of pink blue silver and maybe copper. It is less metallic (though none are metallic...more a sheen to a satin) and is more a satin matte with sheen. Great shade for doing a smoky brown eye.
Great neutral palette for every day or doing a smoky brown eye. It's cooler, less metallic and a little less creamy than honeymoon.
I adore this palette. Traditional Urban Decay. The palette overall is better designed from past Vices in that it's easier to create numerous gorgeous looks using these shades together (they play well together; and there is a good ration of light/medium/dark shades). Light on treys.
Very pretty! Warmer and more pigmented than Nude Dip but with a very similar formula. Metallic, but not shimmery. I found that using them wet only added a little to the pigmentation (but made the shadows harder to apply and blend) except for the darkest brown which was too pigmented to use as anything but a liner wet.
Shade one: gold with a pink/peach/bronze undertone.
Shade two: darker gold, blackened or bronzed, if that makes sense.
Shade three: red with a burnished copper/rose gold duo chrome look.
Shade four: the coolest of the shades and the most puzzling. It looks reddish in the pan, cool swatched and in between on. Less metallic than the others, but still with a slight sheen, I'd say it is a neutral rich brown with a cooler bronze undertone.
What I like best about this palette is that each shade can be worn alone for a quick idiot proof look.
I didn't expect to like these as much as I did. According to UD they use the Revolution lipstick formula but I feel that they have more sheen and some almost duo chrome tendencies (with Wonderland being the most obvious). Three sheers, 4 shiny satins and one matte.
X Girlfriend is a sheer pink peach nude with a shimmery front and almost blue peach duo chrome on me (I know it sounds weird but that's what I saw). Very light, sheer, short wear shade. It's better in person than on camera but works better with a little liner or gloss.
Phone Call is a sheer vibrant warm rose pink. One of my favorites.
Wonderland is a vibrant pink red. This one is close to Spiderweb but lighter and less red. Cool, shiny, satin.
Fire Bird is a vibrant pink fuchsia with a blue shift duo chrome effect (blue lavender). It's vibrant but not crazy bright. Shiny satin. Cool undertone and shiny satin finish.
Spiderweb is a bright medium red, neutral to cool. Nice shade. Shiny satin.
714 is my favorite. It's a warmer red with an orange or coral undertone and is a velvet matte. Stiffer than the others but still workable and only a little drying, the finish reminds me of rose petals.
Plaid is a sheer but super pigmented berry red. It's similar to Spiderweb and Wonderland.
You can see that these veer cool. They are in order in the photos below but in the video I apply Fire Bird before Wonderland so people can better compare the latter with Spiderweb.
