Now I see the price went up to $35, but 4 full size eyeshadow pans, an aluminum case, a smudge stick liner and a multi-use makeup brush for that price is still pretty nice. :)
(I also ordered a Nars blush with this and got $10 off with code, so it was a great bargain which is better than the recent stila warehouse sale.)
There are 2 different sets (Sunrise and Moonrise) available. I wanted a warm brown colors that would replace my Maybelline Natural Smokes quad, and Sunrise seemed perfect for that.

Wheat, Oasis, Java and Barefoot Contessa
Oasis - peachy champagne gold
Wheat - light silvery taupe
Barefoot Contessa - shimmery plum bronze
Java - Deep matte chocolate brown
smudge stick in gold shade Koi
It is a pigmented antique gold color.
I was amazed at how smoothly it applies and stays true. ;O
I am super-satisfied with this set.
These buttery soft eyeshadows are so pigmented and blend like dream. I have experienced some watered-down quality eyeshadows from LE palettes, but this is not the case since all shades are from the core collection.
Also, I am unexpectedly surprised by the quality of smudge stick. It is definitely one of the nicest eyeliners I have used and I think it could be used as an accent color on my crease, too.
I am not so crazy about the brush since I can't stick it in my brush holder cup, but I find the stiff side is quite useful to fill in brows. (Oh, btw, Java shade is great for brows.)
The only thing I could object(?) about the set is the name. I think "Sunset" might have been more appropriate name than "Sunrise".
That's about it. ;)
