Product:
The matte shades in this are all matte and some have a slight satin finish due to soft micro shimmer in the shades. All the shades are pigmented and powdery due to the purer colourant nature.  They are smooth to apply for most of the matte shade with just a handful where better to pat over a primer because you can blend them away due to the slight sheerness. They are true to pan shade-wise which make them great for such bright pops of colour.

The shimmer shades are pigmented and smooth to apply but a touch on the powdery side as well.

The first column of shades were the sheerest and dries of the eyeshadows which I thought was strange as the tone are cooler and lean more purple compared to the rest of the palette.

Wear:
Most I get about 6-7 hours of wear without a base with these eyeshadows. With a primer way longer!

Packaging: The palette is a simple plastic compact with a clear lid to show off the shades. The closure has a push button snap that keeps the palette from opening up.

Verdict: 
This palette is good, I mean a VERY good example of quality drug store eyeshadows. Their not perfectly pigmented and buttery like higher end brands (but high-end ≠ good quality eyeshadow all the time either) but they get the job done with enough pigmentation and texture smoothness to work exceptionally well with a primer and last a good amount of time without one. This is also an accessible brand with free shipping options if you can't find one instore locally for both Canada and the US So this might be the new starter palette I would recommend for other that need makeup for a look or just starting out without too much application difficulty.

I have to say I came in skeptical about this one given it's $50CAN price tag just because I love NYX but that's a lot of money to through into a drugstore palette. I did buy this only during a 25% off sale but I'm so glad I gave this one a shot. I'm my easy to grab drawer now. ;)

Good Job NYX!

The palette as a whole lean warm and cool but seems to be lacking pink and purple tones, which may be why I like it but might not fill the need of others that doesn't look sickly or tied with those shades on in photos. The pops of colour are shattered as well which makes this a universally flatter palette for work and play hours.
