This palette is so incredibly awesome! I was kind of unsure about it because there were a bunch of neutrals (I have both Naked 1 and 2 so I'm pretty set on neutrals) and some colors that I didn't think I'd use but I'm so glad I bought it. The colors are all stunning--Prank, which sheers out really easily, is the only one I'm not in love with--and the possibilities for looks are endless. Even the neutrals have some spunk to them (Ambush totally blew me away: it looks super ordinary in the pan but GORGEOUS when swatched) to keep them from being too common. The array of colors means that you can go neutral or smoky or bright with ease. I love that there's pretty much one of every color (except orange or yellow, both of which I'd love to see done by UD). As soon as I got it, I did a random smoky look using Smokeout, Lovesick, Voodoo, Betrayal, Madness, Shellshock, Dope, and Habit--literally going "hmm, what if I added this next?"--and it turned out great even for a makeup newbie like me.
The palette itself is extremely pretty, the button makes the mirror pop up by itself (which made my jaw drop from glee when I first opened it), and the mirror both stands up on its own and is big enough to actually use (which for someone who normally wears glasses like me and has to get up close to a mirror to do make-up is SUCH a plus). The only other gripe I'd have is with the double ended brush, which is kind of small for my liking. Still, it seems like it's pretty good quality.
Overall, for $59 dollars you're getting 19 beautiful colors (and 1 so-so one), so I'd definitely say that it's worth it.
