    Usually in palettes you can be assured that there’s at least one colour you LOVE and want to cover your eyelids with, and there’s always one that hits a dud note. With so many shades in this palette, it would seem more likely that there will be one or two off colours, but I’m reassured by the fact that this palette has been put together over 20 years. All the formulas will be high quality and the colours are probably really versatile. I would definitely consider buying this palette.
