This is a perfect replacement palette for UD's now discontinued NAKED palette. I might even like it better. This contains 8 shadows rather than 12 but every single shade is very wearable. There are no really dark shades like Creep or Gunmetal but the 2 larger pans are both excellent browbone highlight shades for me. The left side is more warm toned and the right side is cooler but the whole thing is still very neutral (leaning a bit toward cool). For me, it's a perfect every day type palette that is also great for travel. I took only this with me for a 4 day getaway and didn't feel at all deprived.

This palette consists of 8 cool toned shadows in purples and grey tones. It has 3 quite shimmery shades and the remaining 6 are matte or satiny. I find all of the shades to be very easy to apply and nicely pigmented. The left side of this is more neutral and taupe-y while the right side is definitely purple. It's small and compact but has everything in it that I need including a lovely browbone highlight shade.

This little baby sure doesn’t disappoint! The metallics are super buttery & a little goes a long way. There’s only two matters which is fine if you love my metallics and plan on using other mattes with this palette. The one thing this palette is missing to stand alone is a light matte for blurring (for my light skin tone). I’m not sure how the two mattes would work with a variety of deeper skin tones. The only thing I’d recommend with this palette are other transition shades to change up your looks and your own personal base shade for blurring, whatever it might be.

One of my favourites, I keep coming back to this palette over and over again and even decluttered my Anastasia MR because I prefered the pinks and brown in this one (and they didn’t find like bright Anastasia shadows tend to do). I have found that the type of brush does make a difference, fluffy brushes sheers out the colors while slightly denser ones really intensifies the look.

This is the only one of the Cover Shot palettes that interested me and I'm so glad I have it. It's almost the perfect little travel palette (a somewhat lighter beige with a bit of sheen is the only thing that's missing) because it has great neutral colours for everyday looks if you're travelling for business or family stuff but there are also a few shades - STFU and Big Night - to make more dramatic looks. I have generally shied away from red and burgundy eyeshadows as they make my eyes look irritated, but Headline is such a nice and flattering introduction to this type of shade. Slayer is a seriously wonderful crease or smoky lid shadow (I prefer it to Big Night as it's easier to wear and has no glitter) and Rock Me and Hell Ya are the sorts of colours I wear frequently, so for me, they're "must have" shades in any practical palette.
