Will pass.

I can only assume the quality of this palette is good considering its name brand, but I really hate that MUFE did this.  Totally takes away from their PRO image.  With soo many baked shadow competitors, who did they think they could market too? Especially at those prices. IDK.

Will do!

Baked shadows have been around for years and will be for a long time. They are a great formula, and versatile because they can be used wet or dry. Dunno, maybe it is just me but I don't see them as a trend like crackle polishes, magnetic polishes, bb creams, etc.

And so far I love MUFE products. :) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

If Smashbox made it I wouldn't buy it. Their makeup quality is really poor IMO.

I just ordered mine & the Boheme lipstick. I couldn't help myself. I was so pissed after months of waiting for that Smoky Eye palette only to find out we weren't gonna get it.

I know! I never got my hands on it, and the Wild & Chic palette at the JC Penny locations just doesn't interest me.

I'd like it a lot more if they hadn't gone the cultural appropriation route and named the eyeliner "Gypsy". Also, those look just like the Sephora Baked eyeshadows, except that Sephora is missing the aqua color. At least with Sephoras, you get 10 shadows for $28. 

The colors are gorgeous and I love the bohemian theme, but the Gypsy thing just soured me on the whole company. I'm not a fan of racial stereotypes being used as "names" for makeup, when there is absolutely no reason they couldn't have just called that eyeliner something else that was "beachy" themed instead.
