Packaging
Each palette comes with 10 eyeshadows and contains about 0.62 oz (17.5 g) of product. You can see all the shades through the clear window. 
 
I like the fact that there is a mirror on the inside.
It also comes with a dual-ended brush.

All the shades are numbered on the back along with 4 different looks you can achieve with the palette. 
 
I noticed that the packaging in UK is different when I saw my friend, TJ's video (her channel is FoodishBeauty). She included the palette in her April Favorites video:

Review
I think the overall quality of these eyeshadows is good. I wouldn't say it's better than highend eyeshadows but for drugstore, it's quite good. I'd definitely recommend a primer with these eyeshadows to get a better color payoff and make it last longer. The shades are nice but I do wish one of the palettes included a matte black eyeshadow. 
Pros   
  • Easy to blend
  • Less fallout
  • Matte & shimmer shades 
Cons
  • None of the palettes have a matte black shade
  • Not that pigmented: I'd definitely recommend a primer with these eyeshadows for a better color payoff. However, some shades don't show up that well even with a primer.

Nude 1


I find this palette lacks variety and the dark brown shade is the darkest of them all and I find that it wasn't as pigmented as I'd want it to be. I feel like I really had to build up the intensity.

Nude 2

I personally prefer this one over the other simply because it offers more variety. It has deeper shades and I noticed the pigmentation is better.

Overall Impression
Overall, I do think these palettes are pretty good for drugstore. I'd definitely recommend them especially to people who are building their makeup collection and are looking for an affordable palette. I'd highly suggest using a primer with these eyeshadows though.
