This palette features 6 shades including a cream base and a matte liner. The other 4 shades are shimmery, frosting, and oh so gorgeous. I included a photo of them swatched for reference and that darker purple is even more gorgeous in person.

The cream base is a very light color, much too yellow for me (I’m NW10) but presumable it’s geared more towards Korean skintones. It blends well though, and makes a pretty good primer too!

I really love the packaging as well — Banila Co’s trademark for their palettes and compacts is this brushed metal looking material, so not only does it feel sturdy, it doesn’t show too many fingerprints. This particular palette has a lovely lace design on the top. I like it a lot.

The applicator that is included is just a typical sponge applicator, which works in a pinch but I prefer using my MAC brushes to apply the shades.

This retails for about $26 after the exchange rate, but I got mine barey used for a steal from another MUAer.
