Product: 
These are Kat's shimmer shades from previous palettes on steroids. The texture is incredibly creamy to apply and pigmentation is effortless, but you're still able to blend these down if you wanted too.

I picked up Thunderstruck once these first launched last year. And I bought it solely as a highlighter for both the eye and face. The quality of this shade allowed me to sheer it out to the point it doesn't look white at all, but a true opal glow on the skin.


Colour:
Thunderstruck is a white with pink and light gold sheen and a smooth pearl finish.
Thrasher is a tarnished green based gold with a metallic finish.
Electric Warrior is a vibrant chartreuse with a smooth pearl finish.
Iggy is a rich blue based true green with a metallic finish.
Paranoid is a true bright cobalt blue a smooth pearl finish.

Wear: Most I get about 7 hours of wear without a base.

Packaging: Simple plastic compact with a clear window lid. The texture of the plastic is matte but not rubberized like NARS and Bite.

The nature of the shadow formula can and might shatter on you if you drop these by accident on a hard floor surface, (The carpet for me seemed fine. ;) ). But you can repress them if need be.

Verdict: 
This is by far the best shimmer/metallic eyeshadow formula on the market and well worth the price tag for me because a little goes a long way. Do you need all the shades, probably not. Do I want all the shades.... yes, But I'm happy yo have these ones first because you are going to be dropping a lot of money on these in one go.
