I've been considering buiyng this palette for about a year. I was a little hesitant about purchasing it because I didn't want to be disappointed in the pigmentation of the colors, and then have this kit of nearly useless eyeshadows just lying around. I watched numerous videos on YouTube with people using this palette, and finally decided to go ahead and give it a try. I am SO glad that I did! The colors really are as pigmented as they look, and all you need is one swipe of your brush, and you have all the color that you need. I use this along with Urban Decay Primer Potion, and it makes the color even more vibrant and it literally stays on ALL day without any fading or creasing. I put it on around 6 AM and it lasts until I take it off, usually around 10 PM. I haven't tried it without UDPP, so I'm not sure just how long it lasts or if the color washes out a bit. A big plus for me is that this doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes; which is ALWAYS an issue for me when trying out new products.
