I've had this palette for over a year now but I broke it when I was on holiday back in July after dropping it on my bathroom floor. They kindly sent me another one, but honestly I think I would have bought this myself. I generally use these as eyeshadows as I love the way they compliment my eye colour and how they look on my skin tone. I absolutely adore this palette and cannot sing it's praises enough! While it's not the softest bunch of shadows I own, they are very pigmented and apply very smoothly and don't need a primer. The finish is very high shimmer so might be a touch too much to be used as a blush or a highlighter for some. I like to use the gold shade on the lid, then line the lower lashes with either the peach, bronze or pink. I've included some photos of me wearing it rather than swatches as I don't really think they are very accurate!
