I tend to play it pretty safe with eyeshadow, I don't go too dark and I sway more towards nude brown tones and pinkish hues for daytime wear. This palette combines the best of both. There's the lighter shades on the top row for creating a lovely natural daytime look, and the darker plum shades to help you create a beautiful romantic smokey eye. There's also a really nice mix of matte as well as shimmery shades which is great because it makes the palette that bit more versatile.
The actual quality of the shadows themselves is a little disappointing. The lighter shades are incredibly sheer and you need about two or three layers of shadow before you begin to get any sort of color payoff. The darker shades don't present this problem though but if you're like me and stick to the lighter shades, it can get a little tedious, especially as the shadows are quite chalky and there can be quite a bit of fall out. I do find the shadows easy to blend, and find they last quite a few hours without primer before creasing.
Overall, as far as drugstore palettes go, I really like this. There isn't one shade I don't like, and there's so many different looks you can create from the 12 shades. I find myself reaching for this more than my Naked palette despite the effort it takes to build up some color on my eye. For the price it's pretty decent, definitely not the same quality you'd get from Naked 3 itself but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative with similiar rose gold hues, then I highly recommend giving this a go.
