This palette is BEAUTIFUL! It's screams summer glow. As per title, it's a great summer palette that you can create a day and night look.
My only concern is that the palette has a press shadow that is very finely milled. It'll always come with it having a crack in middle, or coming out of its pan.
Mine came cracked a bit, with a small amount coming out of pan.
I placed a Kleenex on top of shadow and lightly press on it. Good as new!
I ordered this thinking it would be great for summer. I have only used it a few times and one eyeshadow - that I didn't use! - cracked, busted and fell out of the palette. The others go on much darker than expected. The bronzers look lighter in the photo online but are much darker in the palette.

I ordered this and when it arrived the top rivjf corner shadow was crumbled and the palette was a mess. I exchanged it in store just for the same pan to crumble again. The colors arent as freat as i expected anyway so id say save your money

I swatched the lighter colors in store and really liked the light shimmer. I just used the darker shade on the top right the other day and the color completely shattered getting all over my floor and leaving nothing left. Quality is not good, not worth the money.

Patchy blotchy mess. Returned. Nothing summer about at the colors are actually darker then the doctored lighted stock photos. Colors are muddy, not much warmth. Total fail!

I was excited to use this. I bought it yesterday and it was the last one so I thought I got lucky. I got home & the top right eyeshadow is crumbled. Apparently I am not the only one. Burns me up bc this makeup isn't cheap!

I just got this in the mail, I was so excited about it, unfortunately when I opened it, it was completely broken, it made a mess everywhere. I called one Ulta store to see if they had it, in order to exchange it, the store had 2, but they were also broken. I was able to find another one at another store and hoping its not broken either.

Mine arrived broken, and some in store were broken too so check before buying/exchanging. It was worth it to me, this palette is gorgeous! I could not find reviews w pictures anywhere online so I hope the photos help anyone looking for swatches

This is my first time trying a Buxom palette, and I saw reviews where multiple palettes shipped in the mail arrived broken, so went to my store to isnoect before buying. There were 3 available. Two of the three contained some broken shadows so I purchased the third. By the time I arrived home ans unpackaged the palette, the dark brown had multiple cracks and a chunk had come out, sticking to the cardboard cover that closes over the palette. Very gently I pressed the shadow to prevent the shattered shadow from falling out and it made it worse. The formula of dark brown (and a few others) is suuuper soft, almost creamy-powdery, but so very fragile. It swatches very dark and pigmented…almost like a very dark, tightly packed loose pigment powder. Expect breakage. If you are okay woth that, go ahead and spend the nearly $40. I feel this is overpriced for the quality, given how fragile it is.

This Pallet is just gorgeous!I think it works well with my fair skin and blue eyes and I am sure it would be beautiful on all skin tones.The eyeshadow is easy to apply and after applying Buxom mascara it stayed on all day.I highly recommend it.

First palette came with top right shade shattered. Replacement palette came with same shade broken. So first of all, theres an issue with the packaging and shipping.
Like the other reviewer, I salvaged what I could to see if worth trying again (hopefully in store). The shadows are definitely a different texture. They are very thin and perform best when wet.
My draw to this palette was that it looked like a lot of options for easy bronzey single-shadow looks for summer. Like I could just swipe one of the shimmers all over and go. Effortless but put-together. The texture of these shadows doesn't quite get there.
HOWEVER, there's no denying that my eyes look amazing every time I use this. I've done 5-6 looks at this point, and all look incredible. Most of the shimmers come off as more of a sheen than shimmery or sparkly.
So overall I'm happy with the palette but would advise getting in-store if you can 1) to see if you like the texture, and 2) so it wont come broken!

Received two palettes at separate times and both were broken each time. The colors seem nice but are soft (almost creamy) so the broken shades got compacted into the still-intact colors when I attempted to clean them off to see if it was with trying to find these in-store. Quite a mess.
