Product: 
The shades of Star Power, Courtney, Vanity, China White, and Black Rainbow are all a matte formula are all smooth to apply to the skin but dry in texture so not as smooth as I like in a matte formula.
I did find that Star Power was more on the dry side for texture and slightly sheer due to the neon pigment they use, but it builds up nicely on the skin. The shade Black Rainbow does have shimmer/glitter that does fall out with the application on the lids and you rally need work with a sticky base to bind those suckers down. Vanity I found to really sticks to the skin and was hard to defuse out without having a base layer of powder under it. It definitely makes it last longer on the skin, though.

The shades of Princess, Violence, Rich Bitch, Expensive, and Confession are shimmery/pearl type formula are all smooth to apply to the skin.
Violence was the only shade I found slightly sheer and needed to be built up. Rich Bitch is chunky pressed pigment for sure, I find it works best wet for sure to get that sucker smooth in application.

Colour:
Star Power, a matte hot pink; 
Princess, a fair lavender shimmer; 
Violence is a reddish purple with a shimmery finish.
Rich Bitch is a yellow tone gold with a shimmery/metallic finish.
Courtney is a camel brown with a matte finish.

Expensive is a deep blue turquoise/teal with a shimmery/pearl finish.
Confession is a rust with purple pearl and a metallic finish.
Vanity is a blackened brown with a matte finish. I also found this shades can lean purple based on lighting.
China White is an off white ivory with a matte finish. (My skin tone basically.)
Black Rainbow is a true black matte with rainbow glitter. The glitter does fall out when applying it, so I recommend a stick base to keep the glitter on the eyes.

Wear: Most I get about 6-8 hours of wear without a base. The matte shades to wear off faster.

Packaging: Simple cardboard box compact with a mirror and a magnet for closure.

Compare:
Star Power is extremely similar to Sugarpill's Dollipop eyeshadow, with Star Power leaning just slightly warmer.

Rich Bitch is very similar to Sugarpill's Goldilux pigment when they are both applied wet. Goldilux is slightly brighter.

Expensive is still a unique turquoise/teal for me but Sugarpill's Droplet pigment is a lighter version o this shade. 
Daylight swatches: Star Power & Sugarpill Dollypop, Rich Bitch & Sugarpill Goldilux (both applied wet), Expensive & Suparpill Droplet (used wet). 
Flash swatches: Star Power & Sugarpill Dollypop, Rich Bitch & Sugarpill Goldilux (both applied wet), Expensive & Suparpill Droplet (used wet).
Where's the Purple?
The shade Violence with the surface removed outside of the star 
Violence in the pressed pan has a more blue tone purple look but once you remove the surface that Blue hue is lost and reveals a redder based plum shade. It a purple that leans very red that has other bloggers confused.

But for those that wanted a true blue based purple and are disappointed in not having a shade like that, fear not, if you blend Violence with Expensive you can create a darker blue based purple.
Daylight swatches: Violence, Violence mix with Expensive, and Expensive
Flash swatches: Violence, Violence mix with Expensive, and Expensive
Verdict: 
Overall this palette has a nice range of unique shades to create more than one look. I definitely consider this a travel-friendly palette if you looking for a mix of pops of colour and daytime appropriate shades as well.
