Product:
Thes Matte formula shadows are VERY pigmented  pressed powders  that can be sold but no too dusty while working them with a brush and smooth to apply to the lids. 

The 8 Shimmer/Glitter shades contain the ingredients of Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, and Alumina which creates the mineral Glitter looks to the shadows. All 8 of these Mineral Glitters shades need more love in terms of a primer to get them to last on your eye all day but it's worth it. I found that these shades were the flakiest for the really need a primer or a glitter Glue like NYX Glitter primer to make them stick more to the eyes. Also using your fingers over a brush allows them to be really packed onto the lids. The other metallics/shimmer were smoother in texture and works fine with a brush.

Colours:
Redemption is a bright marigold orange with a matte finish.
Blend & Snap! is a hot bubble-gum pink with a matte finish.
Ivy is an icy pearl white with a shimmer/glitter finish. This one is on sheer the because there is no colour base unlike the other 7 Shimmer/Glitter shades.
Slasher is a rich mulberry purple with a matte finish.
5am is a yellow based chocolate brown with a matte finish.
Roxy Catan is a brigh bright pink with a gold shimmer shift and a shimmer/glitter finish.
VLA is a electric yellow with a matte finish.
Mikai is a true warm red with a matte finish.
Mila is a warm caramel brown with a matte finish.
Undergrouuis a powder blue with a matte finish. this shade look more like a grey white on my pale olive skin tone. it doesn't read that blue on me.
Aura is a rich coral pink with orange shift and a shimmer/glitter finish.
Basic Trut is a plae blush tone nude with a matte finish. This shade is darker than my skin tone. ;)
All In is a antique gold base with a yellow gold/ green duochrome and a shimmer/glitter finish.
Ew! is a true cool tone green with a matte finish.
Pride is a cool pink with a rainbow/white duochrome and a shimmer/glitter finish.
Zomer is a rich peach-pink with a matte finish.
Mama Tutorials / Mama T is a bright ocean blue with a white shift and a shimmer/glitter finish.
Amsterdamn is a rich cobalt blue with a matte finish.
Mr Tutorials / Mr T is a hazel gold with a green shimmer/glitter finish.

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: 
This palette comes in a magnetic card stock center folding palette with a mirror on both sides of the lid.  The mirror on the left is a standard mirror, while one the right I'd say its a 4 times magnified mirror. Good to do closure up makeup looks. But until you use a 10X magnifying mirror to apply makeup, you have seen NOTHING. lol
Popped out the shade 5am myself.
I tried to see how this palette was built for deporting purposes so I tried to get out the 5am shade to see if I could pry it out of the tray. I rarely use brown eyeshadow other then brow filler or as soft eyeliner outside of testing palettes ;). I could pry the pan but the pans for these eyeshadows are very thin and are hatched texture on the bottom to try to give them some more rigidity to compensate for the thinner pans.

While prying the pan out it flexed pretty quickly which causes the eyeshadow to break. If you wanted to depot this palette I recommend cutting the packaging away from the pans first and use a Xacto knife and then cut through the glue at the base. I'm debating on converting this on to a freestyle palette... I'm really tempted now that I've got a corner to work from. ;)

Pat McGrath Labs Bronze Seduction in VR Fire Opal
VS NikkieTutorials X Beauty Bay Pressed Pigment Palette in All In.
Daylight & Flash swatches: Bronze Seduction in VR Fire-Opal
and  NikkieTutorials X Beauty Bay Pressed Pigment Palette in All In

I wanted to do a comparison to Pat McGrath Labs formula but the only close enough shade to the shades that Nikkie's palette was Bronze Seduction in VR Fire Opal compared to NikkieTutorials X Beauty Bay All In. Nikkie's palette does have a high opacity by comparison but the shade is very similar as both have the yellow gold to green shift. But the Shade all in as metallic solids that adds to its opacity. Pat's eyeshadow is always drier in texture because the use a baked formula to bind the pigments used. While the Beauty Bay formula is a pressed pan like JD Glow. (Note I do have a JD Glow order coming in eventually, as an indie brand they move slower to fill orders you can expect to take up to 5 months at times due to none pandemic delays.)

I'm really excited to see this sort of formula trickling down to more affordable brand not only in the indie market but now in a higher volume product brands like Beauty Bay and Sample Beauty. They're not common yet but they are starting to move in.

Verdict:
Ok if you can get this one on the relaunch and you vibe with the colours. GET IT!!! I've been trying to avoid influencer makeup in general because you just don't know what they are like REALLY. But Nikkie has been apart of the beauty community for a very long time and has as much if not more insecure about her looks and being judged by the general public for them that honestly keeps you grounded while growing up in the Social media culture. She been and still very genuine and willing to call out the bullshit when she sees it. ;)

Colour story-wise girl she is a hot mess I vibe with, This is cosplay makeup colours I do gravitate toward. But the 8 mineral-based shimmer/Glitter shade SOOO makes this worth it if you love high shine formulas. I'm not complaining at the $38ish Canada price point because I usually have to pay $8 per shadow and up to get this formula. So for me, it was worth the gamble on a Beauty Bay to see if the formula was good. I actually think they outdid themselves with this palette. (Hint at a future review.)
