Thoughts: I was lusting after this palette for the longest time and finally found it on The site looked a bit sketchy at first because they sell a lot of discontinued products but everything I've ordered (this and Wet n Wild's Penny single eyeshadow) are authentic. Shipping is counted by weight so the more you buy, the more shipping will cost which is the only downside (I am not being paid to say this!!). 

Anyway, back to the palette. The pigmentation of the eyeshadows are very good, aside from Harvest Moon which doesn't show up as much as I like but it does feel very smooth. The shimmery shadows are especially nice, smooth and buttery but not too buttery that it flakes. As for the mattes, Black Crow and Chestnut are a bit on the dry side but Autumn and Hot Cocoa are very creamy. The shade selection screams Fall, even the shade names are very fall-esque and those who love warm neutral looks need this palette. To be honest I wanted this palette purely because of the bottom row. My favorite shade is Autumn, something about a matte warm peachy orange just draws me in. 

I also love the packaging, the leather-like cover and the fact that it wraps all around making it extra secure. I thought that the inside would be cardboard but it is actually a hard plastic and is very sturdy. I just wish the palette itself isn't so thick (it is about the size of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette before they repackaged, and is thicker than the Naked palettes). 

Overall, this palette is wonderful warm neutral palette that is especially great for fall or all year round. The quality is great and you can get a variety of looks out of the shades from a green or navy smokey eye to warm natural day looks. For me, the only downfall of this palette is the size of it. I think if you love warm neutral looks this palette would be great for you!
