This palette is possibly my favourite of the existing line of 6 colour palettes, even if we include Rue de Rivoli from last year's spring collection that had that lovely fuchsia colour in the middle. The shadows come in the usual silver heavyweight compact with the gorgeous cut-out lace design and flip-out mirror. You get 7.3g for £52.50, so actually this is a lot more expensive gram per gram than the 4 colour palette, but I guess you're paying extra for the compact itself. Interestingly the price remained the same as last year's, even though the other permanent 6 colour palettes now cost £53.50. I believe this is also going to form part of the permanent line which is really nice as there are just far too many gorgeous products coming out with this collection and it can get very expensive having to buy them all (I should know!).
The shadows are soft and very easy to blend, stay put all day, don't crease and look vibrant for hours and hours. One shade (the one across the bottom) has the least colour payoff, but generally they are all nicely pigmented. I did a lovely look with them which I'll be posting soon. The swatches below were done anti-clockwise from the lightest shade, then the middle shade and last the liner shade on the right. Isn't that pink just beautiful?
