Thoughts: I first saw this in store and decided to swatch the shadows out of curiosity. That was a big mistake because I fell in love with the palette!
Here's a closer look inside the palette. It comes with a mirror.
Here's a closer look at the shadows and highlighter in the center.
Here's a closer look at one of the eyeshadows, Wings.
Here's a swatch of the shadows clockwise starting with the matte; Myth, Magic, Wings, Marvel, and Trance.
Continuing of swatches on my hand clockwise; Fairy, Mystic, Dream, Crystal, and Pixie.
Here's a swatch of the highlighter in the center on my hand.

Now for looks I did...
Look #1:
I applied Pixie on the lids and blended it out with MAC Eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set in Bombshell on the lips.

Look #2:
I applied Wings on the lid and blended out with MAC Eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in Old Flame on the lips.

Look #3:
I applied Magic on the lid and blended out with MAC Eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with Lorac PRO Liquid Lipstick Set in Soft Mauve on the lips.

Look #4:
I applied the highlighter on the lid and blended out with MAC Eyeshadow in Mulch on the crease and outer v.
Here's the same look at a different angle.
Here's an overall look with ella+mila Velvet Matte in X on the Beach on the lips. You can also see the highlighter on the tip of the nose.
Here's how the highlighter looks on the tops of the cheeks.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a strong scent when I open the palette. It smells like vanilla or a mixture of cocoa. It isn't my type of scent but it doesn't bother me when I apply it on the lids. Secondly, I'm kind of mixed with the packaging. I like it but kind of don't like it. I like that it's sturdy, well-made, and it comes with a mirror. I don't like that it's circular. It reminds me of a CD, and there's a lot of finger marks. There's finger marks on the gold part, as well as, the top with bunch of colors. With that said, it doesn't completely bother me but it's noticeable. I don't like the circular because it's kind of awkward to store it with my other makeup. It just stands out. I guess that's a pro for the brand. With that said, it's tightly seal. It makes a clicking noise when I close the top. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. Third, the eyeshadows are buttery soft including the matte. The highlighter, on the other hand, it's not as soft as the eyeshadows but it is creamy. They all feel good in-between the fingers especially the sparkling eyeshadows. They feel like baby's skin. With that said, there's no tugging involved. It applies easily and it's easy to blend. When blended, it doesn't look like one color. You can see the gradient affect and it's gorgeous. Fourth, the colors are gorgeous in this palette. It's both for warm tone individuals like myself and cool tone. I tend to reach for the browns and copper. The cool tone people can use the blues and purples. I like that the palette is extremely versatile and can be worn all year round. Pigmented-wise I'm pretty impressed. You don't need to layer much with the eyeshadows for it to shown on the eyes. Highlighter-wise I was disappointed. It's not that pigmented. It took many layers for it to show on the tops of the cheeks. It showed easily on the tip of the nose but I never had an issue with that. It's usually the tops of the cheeks. Lastly, I bought this palette for the shiny/sparkly eyeshadows and I'm not disappointed. They apply and blend easily, lasts all day without creasing, and does not smudge whatsoever. I'm content with all the eyeshadows. I don't feel that way about the highlighter but I just think of it as an extra something in the palette. I do not regret getting this palette. If you want a sparkly shadows that's versatile, this is a good one!

Pros:
* Study, well-made packaging.
* Comes with a mirror.
* Tightly seal; makes a clicking noise when I close the palette.
* Travel-friendly.
* Buttery-soft, creamy eyeshadows.
* Creamy highlighter.
* No tugging involved.
* Easy to apply and blend.
* Gorgeous, sparkly shadows!
* Versatile.
* Warm and cool tone shadows.
* Great all year round.
* Pigmented shadows.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* Strong scent when you open the palette.
* Stands out when I store the palette; circular.
* Finger marks.
* Highlighter isn't pigmented.

Would repurchase: Yes!
