The top covering is made of shiny plastic which kind of mimic glass, that small factor made it look expensive.
It does not include any eyeshadow applicator which is okay if you carry makeup applicators with you.
It does not come with a box so expect tiny scratches on the top cover.
Overall, the glass-like covering still made it look fancy despite the teensy scuffs.
You're going to need a smaller eyeshadow applicator or if you're using your fingers, the pinky will do. It's because the makeup pans are very slim and are very closely situated.
Without primer: Matte shades, 1 to 2 swipes for maximum color deposit.
Without primer: Shimmery shade, 1 to 2 swipes for maximum color deposit.
Without primer: 8 hours - air-conditioned area
Without primer: 6 hours - non air-conditioned area
In each palette there are 5 colors, some are semi-matte and is situated at the bottom. I called it semi-matte because it's a matte finish but there are very tiny flex of shimmer but not clustered together. The semi-matte colors are usually in a darker shade and the other colors are lighter shades that has a shimmery and pearlescent finish. The shimmers are very refined and the colors are wonderful. Palettes are distinguished by numbers, some colors are also repeating from one kit to another, like sand pink, white and cedar brown.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENHANCEMENT:
It should come with a box for the protection of the product.
If they can make the makeup pan larger and not make it very closely situated for convenience.
For the beauties who are on a budget, P195.00 for a 5.5g makeup palette maybe a little bit pricey but I think that Fashion 21 Cosmetics is backing up that price in terms of color pay-off and the staying power of the product.
