 I didn't swatch all 16, but I wanted to give a idea of the matte and shimmers and how they swatch... There are nine matte shadows and seven shimmer shadows....
 Here are a couple of looks I played with using the shadows, mascaras and lip cremes....

OVERALL....

- KILLER DEAL for all of these products!! $50= four lip products, two mascaras, 16 shadows, two liners!??! If anything, buy it for the deal!

-I really like these lip creams. I have the lip balm sticks and the matte sticks but the lip cream sticks are the best. They feel like a light weight lipstick with plenty of pigmentation. All four colors are wearable on my skin tone which sealed the deal of love for me!

-My favorite high end mascara is lights, camera, lashes so I felt like God blessed me in abundance with two of them. lol! I could give a church shout of praise right now! I like the quality and bulge-proof of the liners but I really don't know if I will use these colors. I have a fig colored one from tarte from an old set and I don't use brown liners. I guess putting a brown liner in the kit makes it an "universal" color for all skin tones since black can be harsh on some skin tones. If you like brown liner, you will be very happy. I would have preferred a black liner, though.


-The shadows, like most tarte shadows, in my opinion are hit and miss. I have had many tarte shadows in the past and its like, they almost have it: with the variety of shades and formulas( like matte, shimmer, satin) but when it comes to a palette, its not fully consistent. You will get some heavy, smooth shadows like the dark mattes in this palette then you will get some flimsyones like the shimmers, in this palette. However, out of 16 shadows, I don't like about 5 of them. So, its a wearable everyday palette for a good value. Plus, I would have loved a black matte shadow in this palette to deepen the crease and outer v of the eye. You almost got it with the shadows, tarte, I see your growth!!

Go to www.QVC.com to order Bow & Go or catch the presentation of the palette at 12 midnight Monday November 18,2013 and 9-10 am and 6-9pm November 18th, as well!
