Finally it is mine! I have been on the hunt for this bad boy for months now and finally it is in my hands and part of my palette rotation. It's packed full of shimmer and matte neutral shades to take your look from day to night. I couldn't get it in Canada anywhere so I had to get my Mom to grab it for me while she was in Phoenix. It was $40 at Ulta.

Packaging 
The packaging is made of cardboard and closes with a magnet. You get a pretty decent sized mirror in the cover too. The one thing I really love about this palette versus the Lorac Pro palette is the finish of the packaging - Its super easy to clean and wipe product off. Also the packing is super slender and easy to store.

Texture
The texture of the shadows are for the most part a bit powdery with some flops when comes to the pigmentation.

Weartime
Weartime is pretty decent and with the Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer that comes with the palette, you can make thee shadows last all day and night.

Colour
There are ten shades in total, four matte and six shimmer/metallic. All the colours are on the warmer tone of the neutral spectrum and for the most part pack a lot of pigmentation.

Undercover
Matte Cream shade that works as the only highlight in the palette. Unfortunately, this shade does not pack very much pigmentation, but it does the trick in a pinch.

Unbelievable

Shimmer/metallic rose gold/copper shade that has intense colour payoff that does not look like the same colour in the pan as swatched. 

Unattainable

Shimmer/metallic light bronze that has a lot of colour payoff. 

Unconditional 

Matte pinky mauve shade that kicks up a lot of powder. The colour payoff is really great and this shade works as one of two in the palette as the transitional shade.

Unbridled 

Matte red-toned plum shade that also kicks up a lot of powder. The pigmentation is not the greatest and it takes a bit to build up the same colour that appears in the pan.

Undiscovered 

Shimmer/metallic pale gold shade. The pigmentation is not that great and requires a lot of build up to get any kind of decent colour payoff.

Unreal

Shimmer/metallic pale pink that is surprisingly creamy. Again, the colour payoff is not awesome requires a little more work.

Uncensored

Shimmer/metallic bronze shade that is a little darker then Unattainable. Intense colour payoff.

Unspoken

Matte warm brown that also works as a crease shade to blend out any look. A bit powdery and not super pigmented. 

Untamed

Slightly metallic dark brown with a slight plumy glow. Kicks up a bit of powder but this is the darkest shade in the palette.

All in all, this is a nice pallet if you love neutrals. If you own any of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I would say skip this guy. The quality of the shadows is not on par with the infamous Lorac Pro palette that I adore. I'll continue to use it, but it won't be something I reach for every day.
