What I liked: I found the eyeshadow strips to have pretty good pay off, with the browns giving the best intensity out of the bunch. The whites are quite shimmery for the most part, making them not the best highlighters (an overly white highlight with intense frost finish can look off on some).  I think the lighter pink may work better as a more natural highlighter than the whites.  I do like the variation in shades, and I do feel like you could get a few looks out of this – and definitely lighter/darker versions of the looks you do come up with.

What I didn’t like: Having them directly next to each other can make it easy to blend them together–which may or may not be something you like–but I hate having different color dust accumulate on my other shadows.  It drives me bonkers!  I also feel like there is a frost overload in this palette; I know they’re called Shimmer Strips, so that’s a definite tip-off, but it could have been a lower level shimmer. For instance, the browns have a pleasant shimmer finish, without being frosty, and I think this kind of finish would complement the skin of most people, especially in the lighter shades of pink/white.
