I had been longing for a one-palette summer travel companion this year. This turned out to be a smart, fun choice!!
When I thought what 12 colors in a palette I would like in 'the perfect palette' for summer travel, this one has pretty much 90% of the colors I wanted for summer/travel. Shades ranging from fun, bright, to night, to day shades.
A couple of the shades are a bit chalky/powdery for me, and a touch of dust kicks up a little bit..but these are totally workable and look quite nice once they are applied. The price was really not too bad at all when I considered how many shades I would use out of this palette (almost all of the shades). I do not get any creasing with these (I am no youngster at age 44) and these wear decently in the summer heat and humidity. These last a good 8 hours on me and even then they still have a trace of color that looks nice/decent. The brush that comes with this is also actually pretty decent, which is nice, esp if you do not want to take a bunch of brushes with you when you travel.
Not the absolute perfect formula to me (they are not buttery, they can be a little bit to 'work with' to get them applied and look nice), but still quite nice. Like I said, these are great IME for some fun summer shades or a convenient travel palette if you do not want to lug a ton of product, but would not be (and is not) my HG/daily/everyday palette. Still this very much served it's purpose for me!
