I love this palette! The picture here makes them look more pastel-y than they are in real life. The colours of the shadows are actually a little darker/more saturated. They have a bit of a shimmer to them as well, but it's not too intense.
I find the shadow stays put and doesn't build up in the crease of my eyelids after hours of wear. I use this palette pretty much everyday (with the exception of the darkest shade, which I use if I want to dress it up a bit), the neutral tones are perfect for day-to-day. They also compliment my eye colour (greyish-green). However, I don't ever use the glittery "sparkle top coat", because I hate glitter, but that's just me.
I bought "impressionist" a few months ago, and it's just started to wear down, so it lasted me quite a long time. In the end I think these Photo Ready palettes are a pretty good deal, and I'm definitely going to buy it again in "impressionist", and probably in a few other colours as well.
