I would say that this palette has always been one of my favorite palettes of all time, I did buy it a while back from itcosmetics.com and it is really beautiful!
The packaging is really nice, a pink palette that has velvety touch and with magnetic closure, it has a really good variety of colors, which make it possible to create different looks with it.
The quality of the shadows are very good, I would not say that they are the same as Urban decay’s (as I think UD is a bit better), but it is still very good, but always make sure to apply an eyeshadow primer first, sometimes I apply foundation to the eyelids and I think it works also just fine.
The shadows are all matt- except for the transforming pearl, and are said to be of an anti-aging ingredients. They also are manufactured to diffuse the appearance of wrinkles on the eyelids; and I do think that is quite that case, as I do have some lines on my eyelids, but the finishing and the application is quite satisfying! Some of these ingredients are: Peptides, Collagen, Silk and Antioxidants, and shadows can be used wet or dry and you can use them as liners J
The shade transforming pearl is quite lovely, it is not quite matt as the rest of the shadows as it has a beautiful pearly touch, this shade can be used under the brow to light up the look, and also at the inner corner of the eyes, and also you can transform any shade in the palette to become shimmery, by dapping your brush into the eye shadow shade then dap it into the transforming pearl.
My favorite color in this palette is “All Heart”, it is warm very feminine mauve color that can serve a transition color- try dusting over the eyelid with a fluffy eye shadow brush, I think it looks amazing on all eye colors especially hazel and brown eyes.
My least favorite shade was “Sheer Joy” it is a bit ashy and it does not show on the skin, in the swatches below you will notice it is not available as I could not get the color to work, I just could not.
Also the pigmentation of the palette is very good, but no amazing, the swatches took 2-4 swipes, but no primer was used.
