Swatches & Hot Pot Number
PRO's:
- Very bright and pigmented
- Hard to find cheap quality eye shadows like this
- Good thing to have in your kit if you don't already own bright shadows
- Nicely packed into one palette
- Big mirror
- Packaged nicely and sleek/simplistic
- Magnetised eye shadows so you can re-arrange the palette
- Small size so easy to store

CON's:
- Hard to access (especially those outside of the US)
- Quite a heavy palette
- Hard to pop out the eye shadows out of the palette
- The lighter colours, yellows/orange, are less pigmented
- They're all matte finishes

Overall: 
I like this palette. It's all there for you to use and you can take 1 or 2 of these shadows with a neutral shade to tone it down too. It's a good thing to have in your kit if you only own a couple shadows that are all neutral. I don't use this much but have used it on other people and created looks using this. The yellows and the orange colour aren't the same as the other colours but are still good enough to use. I don't regret this buy and to be honest, I love it!
