The palette comes in a cardboard case. The front is embossed with splashes of metal colors. The inside contains a large mirror and a card that provides some tips on how to play with the colors. The palette is around two centimeters thick and it's about the size of a small book.

Formulation:
Like most baked powder products, the formulation is a tad dry but most of the shadows are nicely pigmented. A couple of the colors are a bit similar to each other but overall there are some great metallics, shimmers, and even satin mattes.

Uranium: Mossy green metallic with copper undertones. Great pigmentation!
Copper: Super pretty bright copper metallic.
Geode: Satin peach nude.

Shale: Matte taupe-y grey, great formulation.
Gypsum: Pale shimmery champagne

Hematite: Silver metallic, this shade was not as pigmented as I had hoped.

Overall:
If you love baked shadows, then this one is a hit. For the value, the number of shadows and the pretty cheek colors you get is pretty amazing. Although a few of the shades are a bit lackluster, the majority of the colors are pigmented and easy to wear.

Availability:
Sephora Collection is available online and in stores at Sephora.
