I love this palette. All told, they're not the most "buttery" eyeshadows in the green beauty space, but the ingredients are non-irritating and the colors are gorgeous. With a little primer and a little patience, it's worth the effort - at least for my needs and taste. Using a shader brush to pick up the product seems to work better than fingers or a blending brush, and that's fine by me. Also, the refillable packaging and mirror are of excellent quality.
