Porcelain, Copper, Bronze, & Sterling.
Dusk, Cinder, Onyx, & Glacier.
Dune, Rust, Jasper, & Quartz.
Product: 
The satin formula that is the three Base Shades in Porcelain, Dusk, & Dune which is very pigmented and very smooth to apply. I would love to see more satin formula shades from the brand because these are closer to the MAC Matte2 formula that they discontinued.

The one matte shade with shimmer is Onyx is drier because of the black pigment used.

The shimmer shades are smooth in application and pigmented to work with.

The Topcoat shades in Sterling, Glacier, & Quartz formula is a glitter mica eyeshadows that have a lot of high shine shimmer. These are powdery and needs a primer to wear longer on the lids.
Colour:
Porcelain is a warm pale nude with a satin finish. 
Copper is a warm brown with a shimmer finish. 
Bronze is a warm bronze with a metallic finish. 
Sterling is a shimmery pale cream with a white glitter finish. 

Dusk is a pale rose taupe with a pearl finish. 
Cinder is a deep cool brown with a shimmer finish. 
Onyx is a matte charcoal black with a red shimmer finish. 
Glacier is a shimmering white with a white glitter finish. 

Dune is a warm peach with a satin finish. 
Rust is a brick brown with a shimmer finish. 
Jasper is a warm tan with a gold shimmer finish. 
Quartz is a shimmer peach gold with a pale gold glitter finish.

Wear: Most I get about 5-6 hours of wear without a base.

Packaging: The palette is simple plastic box compact with a mirror and a magnet for closure. The dimensions are close to the original Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette, but I love that the design is raised smooth plastic version of the logo embossing. It's also easier to clean now that it's plastic.

Verdict:
This palette feels like the original Saint palette from years ago. There are few shades that could work as a matte but the shimmer shades are so lovely to work with it really is a companion to the original Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette.

This might be the more popular palette for those that want to try out the brand for the first time using their eyeshadows, and this is still a well rounded natural family palette.
