On to the pictures!
All of the shadows have a smooth, relatively creamy feel to them except for the black shade which feels a bit dry but still applies pretty nicely - similarly to how the dark blue in the Snow Sprite palette applies. Even though the red is creamy, it doesn't apply quite as smoothly as the others and would require a bit more building to get even coverage.
You have probably heard that the darker brown shade with the teal duochrome is a good dupe for MAC's Club eyeshadow. I don't own Club, so I can't confirm this first hand, though I've seen a few side by side comparisons that other bloggers have done, and it looks pretty good to me.
And of course, this set also comes with a liner - this one a black with silver sparkle. I've said before that I'm not the biggest fan of these liners but, let's face it, we're all in it for the shadows.
and a look
The other day, I chose to do a look using the three shades on the neutral side of the palette.
You ladies are clever enough to know which went where. ; )
It's certainly nothing ground breaking, but it works very well for a neutral eye that needs to be done on the quick!
