You can't go wrong with neutrals! First, the bad... I was disappointed to see a handful of matte shades but shimmery ones are more my type anyways. I LOVE NEUTRALS! My absolute favorites that I keep reaching for are: Stubborn (shimmery peach), Stand-offish (frosty peach), Sulty (matte tan - favorite!), Sophisticated (warm brownie shade with gold shimmer), and Schitzo (shimmery tan). I hardly ever use the super light shades except in cases where I decide to highlight or the super dark shades except in cases that I want to contour for a night out dramatic look. I still use the Shady Lady Vol 1 & 2 more than this palette.
