Product: 
The Matte shades in are on the slight powdery side with excellent pigmentation blend out beautifully.

The Metallic/Shimmer shades do pack a punch regarding pigmentation, and the texture is buttery which allows you to sheer out nicely as needed but also intense enough to last on the skin.

The High Shimmer/Glitter shades are the stunners in this palette. They contain the ingredients of Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, and Alumina which creates the mineral Glitter looks to the shadows. These ingredients are extremely rare to find in the market as they were hard to find. I was first exposed to these ingredients back in 2012 through loose pigment Naked Cosmetics Gem Powders which they still sales and Make Up For Ever Holodium Powder which was just relaunched as the MUFE Star Lit Diamond Powders with the synthetic version Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate which is Calcium Sodium Borosilicate. What that means you will see more brand incorporate the synthetic versions of this micro glitter into their cosmetics like Jeffree Star Supreme Frost that I just reviewed. ;) But these are stunning!

Colours:
Skin Show Divine Glow is a pale golden champagne with a shimmer finish. 
Entrapment is a warm tan brown with a matte finish.
Blaze Bronze is a warm bronze with a high shimmer gold glitter finish. 
Rose Gold 005 is a rose gold base that shifts gold/pink with a high shimmer glitter finish. This shade is slightly sheer but can be built up over a primer.
VR Fire Opal is a pale beige/orange that shifts gold/green with a high shimmer glitter finish. This shade is sheer but can be built up over a primer.
Xtreme Aubergine is a blackened plum with a matte finish.
Guilty Pleasure is a bronzed taupe with a high shimmer gold glitter finish. 
Disobedient is a warm rich brown with a matte finish.
Blitz Flame is a fiery red with a metallic shimmer finish.
Astral Luna Gold is a white/blue that shifts gold with a high shimmer glitter finish. This shade is sheer but can be built up over a primer.

Wear: I get close to 8-9 hours of wear without a base for the matte and shimmer shades. The high shimmer glitter shades wear about 6-7 outs without a primer. With primer all day. ;)

Packaging: The palette is a reflective black plastic box with gold mirror finish metal inlay panels and a magnetic closure. There is a bevelled mirror in the lid and the palette has a fair bit of weight to it for the "Lux" feel. You are definitely paying more for the packaging here for sure.

The palette is housed in cardstock box that closes like a tie off folder which does give the palette a little bit of padding.

Verdict:
These palettes A+ eyeshadow shades in terms of performance and they make me want to purchase more of their single shadows in the future if that ever happens. The mattes are nice and workable while the shimmers are excellent as well. This one caught my eye in terms of the harder to find in a pressed pan formula on the market at the moment with the high shimmer/glitter eyeshadows.

At $12.50US or $17CAN when you break them down by the per pan price they, not horrible prices palette but definitely on the higher end of things!!!

But her brand as a whole I recommend trying in person before you commit as the 6 pan palettes are the better deal if you like the shades over these 10 pan palettes in terms of product your paying for.
