I absolutely adore this palette and I just got it today. I am not a fan of mattes as opposed to shimmer but these are just beautiful. They are brownish mattes (with a reddish one thrown in of course) that you could really use to start any look with transition shades. You\’re really able to contour the eye before adding any shimmer or glitters, and when you do they really pop against the darker mattes. I recommend using a rose gold glitter and some bronzed brown eyeliner! It looks awesome! The texture, pigment, and even the order the colors are in (yea that\’s a thing that bugs me lol) is great. If you love Urban Decay, or warm colors, or just want to try something new, this palette is fabulous.
