I've been using this palette for a while but I didn't take pictures until today. Most of my eyeshadows are really pigmented and bold, so it's nice to have the soft colors in this palette.

It comes with four exclusives shades: Nude/Pink, Purple, Green/Turquoise & Plum/Dark Purple, the last of which does not come off as 'purple' to me (third swatch on bottom row). It's hard to tell the difference between In the Buff and Exclusive Pink, but they'd both make great highlight colors. Velvet Revolver and Teddy Bear are both similar matte shades and I could live without them. I really like all of the shimmery colors even though you have to pack them on to get more color. There are two shades that I'd like to point out: Label Whore (first swatch on bottom row) is like a dark green shimmer with a reddish brown undertone which I think is really cool; and Ooh Aah (fourth swatch on bottom row) is a pretty silvery blue.
