MAC Lo-Fi Jeremy Scott Eyeshadow x29 Palette ($75.00 for 0.51 oz.) is an example where there's a lot of attention paid to the packaging but not enough toward the actual product inside. I like the concept, and one thought to solve the "wasted space" aspect of the palette would have been to made a hinged lid (that was black) that hid additional shades, so you could get the visual effect while providing more shades (perhaps making each pan a little bigger).
Unfortunately, the formula used throughout the palette is weak, even compared to past misses by MAC. Most of the shimmers are bordering on atrocious--dry, loosely packed, almost sandy--and many of the mattes are sheer, dry, firm, or chalky. The quality was bad enough that it was difficult to put together any semblance of a cohesive look without primer, as there was so much patchiness, sheerness, and unevenness that it looked like I wasn't even trying. So, I tested the palette with and without primer, and while it did improve over primer, it was still a difficult palette to use--it took between two to three times longer to get decent results (that were still not where I'd want them to be) compared to other, better performing "bright" style palettes.
The palette contains quite a bit of eyeshadow spread over a lot of shades, and MAC lists the total weight as 0.51 oz., which would work out to be 0.0175 oz. per shade. Depending on whether you'd compare it to single pans or smaller palettes or single eyeshadows, you might get a different total value; I'd say that using the smaller palettes (like the pre-made 9-pan palettes) might be the most one-to-one methodology - that would yield a value of $90.67. The highest value would be using single eyeshadows, which would yield a value of $163.20.
If you normally use larger brushes, the pans may seem too small, and if you have very rounded, fluffy crease brushes, those may also not fit as comfortably in each pan. I didn't have trouble using brushes with the palette myself, but I do tend to use small and medium-sized brushes normally.
