Packaging:
The palette comes in an adorable metal tin with a plastic insert. There is a small mirror on the underside of the lid and the palette includes a small pamphlet that provides instructions on creating three different looks. The palette stays shut via a magnetic closure, the magnets on my palette are a bit weak, I wish it was stronger so the palette is closed more securely.
The palette is divided horizontally into three trios: day, classic, and fashion. Vertically, the shades are divided into base/highlights, all-over color, and crease color.

Formulation:
Usually, matte shadows can be quite finicky, either too powdery or too hard. However, all except for a couple of shades in the Natural Matte Eye Palette are very pigmented and creamy smooth.

Base & Highlighting Shades:
Heaven: Super pigmented ivory. The pigmentation for this one is excellent.
Lace Teddy: Peachy nude.
Nudie: Pale tan nude.

Here is a look I created using Heaven, Lace Teddy, Strapless, and Chocolate Cookie. I finished the look using the Kat Von D Ink Liner and a bit of a metallic gold liner on the bottom lash line.

This is an absolutely superb (and wonderfully designed) palette. With only two out of nine shades missing the mark a bit, this palette is an overall hit. If you love matte neutrals you must get this palette!
