As far as quality goes, it's so good. Some of the shades are smoother than others when you're swatching, but I haven't noticed that making a difference when applied to the face and blended out. Speaking of blending out, you don't really have to do that too much unless you want to. Something I think is really cool about this palette is that you can choose what kind of intensity you want. If you're light handed and blend it out, then you can get a nice, soft glow with just a hint of the sheen of whichever color you choose. Alternatively, if you pack it on and only blend out the edges, then its pigmented enough that when you turn your head and catch the light, there's no mistaking what color is on your cheekbones. That's how I like to wear it, especially for night time.

The one and only downfall is me trying to take a good picture of the swatches. No matter if I had the best camera in the world (okay, so I just use my iPhone lol), it won't do something like this justice at all. You have to see the way the light catches the shades to truly understand what kind of angelic situation is going on here. Luckily, I was able to make a gif that captures some of that gorgeous sheen. Still better in person, but I do what I can.
So, let's talk about my thoughts on each individual color. My favorites are for sure Purple Horseshoe, Pink Heart, and Lucky Clover. Not that I don't enjoy the other three, it's just that they are very similar both to each other and to other highlighting shades. They don't look like it in the pan, but when they're on the skin they all kind of have a silvery iridescent look without much actual color. They would be good for a low key day or just a day when you're not feeling all that adventurous. But out of those ones, Blue Ice definitely is the most unique, which is ironic since it's probably the least impressive looking one in the actual pan. This is the part where I should say not to judge a book by its cover, right? Lame, but kind of true in this case, possibly for all of the colors.
