Product: 
The matte shades in this formula are pigmented and a  solid opacity they can blend out, but they do stick to were you place them. The shade Vortex is slightly sheer/chalky but buildable. I'm wondering if this one was overpressed which can happen with matte shades.

The shimmer shades are smooth and buttery for the formula.

The shimmer shades of Cosmic, Ultraviolet, Nebula, Mercury, Galaxy, Supermoon, Supernova, Gold Glitch, has this formula that does have Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate/Calcium Sodium Borosilicate has the glitter elements in this eyeshadow and can be used with a stiff brush, but the fingers work as well. That is also a lot of shade with this ingredient and I'm loving it!

Nebula also has straight-up small round plastic glitter as the main colour of this shade. The base has a slight stickiness to it but please use a base or glitter primer as they larger chunks will fall off otherwise.

Colours:
Cosmic is a pale pink with a shimmer finish.
Utopia is a light peach with a matte finish.
Ultraviolet is a light violet with a shimmer finish.
Nebula is a light violet/sliver that is a small size round glitter.
Mercury is a smoked dark grey with a teal shimmer finish.
Haze is a bright mint with a matte finish.
Off Balance is a dusty blush rose with a matte finish.
Galaxy is a warm rose gold with a high shimmer finish.
Libra is a dusty blush light mauve with a matte finish.
Crash is a dusty nude rose with a matte finish. Looks way different than in the pan on me. O_O
Momentum is a pale peach nude with a matte finish.
Supermoon is a frosty white with a high shimmer finish.
Vortex is a deep plum brown with a matte finish. This one is strangely chalking and powdery in texture.
Hot Mess is a berry red with a matte finish.
Supernova is a warm copper-gold with a pink high shimmer finish.
Karma is a warm deep peach with a matte finish.
Gold Glitch is a light rich gold with a shimmer finish.
Frazzled is a warm copper bronze with a shimmer finish.

Wear: Most I get about 6+ hours of wear without a base for the shimmers and the matte shades. I do see some fallout of the glitter after 4+ hours without a base. But with a primer, these last way longer on my hooded eyes my hot makeup day teste over a primer still had shimmer and the shades were still bold. ;)

The 1 glitter shade Nebula has a nice base but it NEEDS a primer to last longer on my hooded lids. A glitter primer is preferred!

Packaging: The palette is a plastic box compact with a clear purple-tinted lid with a mirror backing with printed cover art over holofoil. The inside of the palette is clear plastic with a purple tint and chrome foiled chrome backing tray with a mirror in the lid and snap closure.

Verdict:
This is the first of her large palette I felt drawn too because I don't use blush and neutrals that often and have so many shades like those in other palettes. This is my pastel blush live and it a nice palette overall but some of the matt shade is slightly sheer but buildable. Surprisingly I had the most issues with Vortex as it's the only deep shade in this palette being chalky is not fun if you need to deepen any looks with this palette. 

But overall this is your best pastel unicorn live right here with some neutrals to make it a more rounded palette. This is a pale palette, however, so I can't see this one not working more universally on deeper skin tones.
