Pigment and Texture
They are the usual super buttery and soft, yet pigmented LORAC shades I’ve come to love.  Some are on the frosty side, as many of my LORAC palette shades are.  All four of the shadow palettes include four shades. The other 2 palette are a cream base/eyeliner palette & lip palette , the eyeliner palette is to die for so cream and pigmented I was actually blowing away by it,as far as the lip palette it goes , well it is the best lip palette but it isnt the worst either , the color are very nice and smooth but not the most pigmented so if your one of the people that like sheer color or something simple but not to bold then your will like it .

Staying Power
These shadows have great saying power, but primer is a must and they wont budge all day , as far as the eyeliner/base  id you are planning on using them as a liner , dont forget to set it can it will transfer since it is a greasy texture, if your gonna use it as a base I still recommend a primer before apply it but lasted all day and didnt have any problem with it transferring or running 

Packaging and Price
The packaging is unique and honestly, pretty darn adorable.  The palettes come in a lovely box that resembles a box of Godiva chocolates.  It’s a heavy duty box, and the end of the bow has a magnet so you can clasp the box back together.

My Thoughts- I found these shades to be creamy, soft and blendable. Colors are vibrant, the lip/check colors are wearable and pigmented and the eyeliner pallet shades are creamy and easy to work with. However, as much as I Love the packaging (reason I got it) the selection of colors from palette to palette is quite disappointing-More of a variety in colors would have been ideal. Nevertheless, all the colors are lovely and still will use these palette since it is so versatile and anyone can benefit from these palettes.
