I can't get over how good this palette is. With the exception of the two lightest, frosty colors (white and pale peach), the shadows are soft, smooth and ultra-pigmented. The bright blues go on like a dream, which is no easy feat for those types of colors.
The two light frosty shades are drier, more powdery, and have low color payoff on bare skin. Over eyeshadow primer, they show up better. This is typical of Hard Candy's frosty light shades.
The colors wear all day over primer. I did not test longevity without primer. They did not irritate my sensitive eyes.
Packaging is a sturdy plastic case with a cute color coordinating studded design. It comes with the typical double-ended sponge applicators.
