This palette is artistic. You can turn yourself into a fairy princess or have a beautiful subtle glow for work. Im very impressed with these. They are very soft but clay like almost and you can manipulate them like that. You can start out with a very subtle look and build it up to the point of it being a nice eyeshadow. You have to go in with a tough brush or finger to get them worked in before they warm up and start working nice. Im so impressed I wanted them to have a good thorough review.
