This palette is a hit and miss all in one. Shades #1, 3 & 4 are perfect, creamy, highly pigmented and gorgeous. 4 is the tiniest but sheer but can be layered dry to become super intense. #5 is decent but a bit sheer, but build-able. I wish it didn't have the glitter but it is pretty when used wet, as a liner. #2 is the coral shade that made me purchase this palette. but left me disappointed. I would love it if it did anything other than give a sheer wash of coral tint and gold glitter particles. It looks lovely over a white base but there's no in between. It's super sheer or BOLD. it's also powdery and dry an as you blend it, it disappears. Saying that the palette is still useful without the coral color.
