In terms of formula, this palette is pretty consistent with Colourpop's formula -- fairly pigmented while still being easy to blend. I just wish the lightest matte shade (Locked and Loaded) was a creamier, less firmly packed formula because on my light-medium skin tone, I use it to set my eyes. This shade being more firmly packed makes it harder to pick up more product at a time, and thus more time-consuming to set my entire eye (unlike the lightest matte shades in the Yes, Please! and Give It to Me Straight palettes, which are less firmly packed and thus easier to set my eyes with). Regardless, this isn't a deal breaker.
As for the color story, it's a nice warm neutral that's works well for everyday use. However, though the shimmers I feel have a decent range of depth, the matte shades skew on the lighter side (versus, for example, the Brown Sugar palette). Consequently, I can't achieve dramatic looks as dramatic as I would prefer to create, and I wouldn't really suggest it for anyone with a skin tone deeper than the medium tan range.
