Wow, this thread completely slipped through the cracks for me. Whoops.

While I somehow missed this post, I happened to catch it in the Naked thread, but you are doubly right: I am interested! That palette is now on my wish list because it looks awesome even though I feel like I might hold off until I make a bigger dent in my original Naked palette to justify it. It's honestly just exactly how I would have organized a neutrals palette if I did it myself, so that's awesome.
What is starting to concern me is that I never got my TheBalm palette! It shows electronic notification for shipping on the 21st with no updates since then. I don't need it right now, and it's better than them telling me it was delivered when it wasn't, but yeesh.

Thanks for the heads up, but I had noticed this and I think Temptalia was complaining about the quality of the "re-issue" which gave me some pause. Of course she could have gotten a bad palette, and she never reviewed the first one, so this wasn't the real deal breaker. The real deal breaker that is a personal problem is that I have broken more than my fair share of shadows in my WnW palettes. As much as I like the quality for the price and the portability factor, I am getting tired of throwing my money away on something that breaks too easily. The cost per use for me with these is turning out to be higher than expensive palettes if I only use it a few times before some colors become unusable or difficult to use because there is floating powder from other shades that sticks to the other colors. I also have noticed that I'm great at just so happening to break the limited edition ones in particular. Part of my problem is I store my mostly used makeup overhead in my bathroom, but these things can't take a short fall into the sink much less a long one onto the floor. Meh.
