Overall, I LOVE this palette! It’s so pretty! However, I wish it didn’t  have 2 browns. I wish one of those browns was a teal blue, or a gold. Or hey, that the brown was a matte for contouring like Salted Caramel from the Chocolate Bar Palette. The eyeshadows themselves have great textures and finishes. They’re easy to work with. I think the palette is a great value for the price.
