Are you excited? I was when I first heard an all-Matte palette was going to be released. I personally
The shades are true to their crayola colors form - white, purple, peach, green, etc. Although on the pan it looked matte, the blue shade did have a slight satin finish to it - check my swatch and close up on the photo. I didn't experience any difficulties with the colors except with most matte eyeshadows in different brands, the bright colors tend to lean on the chalky/patchy side. The blue and green were probably a little difficult to swatch but nothing to where it wasn't capable. The neutral colors seem to be repeats from older palettes (most noticeably from the 6-pan palettes) although I have not confirm this in swatch comparisons. Is this palette really unique? No, only if you own EVERY WNW shadows they've created. Otherwise it is a keeper because of it's all (majority) of matte texture and it has the best of every color from nudes to bright under one palette. Plus, it's only $4.99 - what's not to like?
Remember, this is being released to off-set the removal of the 6-pan palette which will be permanently discontinued late 2012.
