My comments:  I bought this palette for about $13 at my local Claire’s Boutique. Yes! Claire’s sells makeup, in addition to their fabulous array of accessories 😉 I cannot attest to the goodness of these shadows on their own. I only use them as opaque bases for powder e/s. Dare I say, Claire’s cream shadows give my e/s more longevity than some of my NYX jumbo pencils! I’m talking 12-14 hours! #POW! Most cream shadows have a greasy texture, which causes them to crease somethin’ serious, but not these! The only drawback of their powdery texture, as far as I’m concerned, is THE FALLOUT. Part of the reason I didn’t photograph my own palette is that it’s speckled with fallout! I use a sponge applicator (instead of a brush) to apply, but regardless of how neat I try to be, I always end up with speckles of e/s on my nose & cheeks. I just use a baby wipe to remove it, but that could be problematic if you’re already wearing foundation, concealer or pressed powder. Although the palette has 24 individual shadows, a few of them are duplicates, so you’re really getting about 18 colors. IDK if you can tell from this picture, but all the shadows in this palette have a frosty or metallic finish. Although I don’t use it that often, I really like this palette. Apparently Claire’s has limited availability of this particular palette, so if you can find it, I highly recommend it!

Here are a few of the looks I created by using Claire’s 24 cream eyeshadow palette as my base…
