Overall Opinion:

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s first thought was: “Oh no, not ANOTHER Zero pencil!”
Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but both BoS palettes I own had one, so now I have three Zero pencils(and I haven’t even hauled many UD products, I’m sure many people have way more than three!). Don’t get me wrong, Zero is a great pencil, it’s the only UD pencil I’ve tried that stays on my waterline, it has great staying-power and it’s applies soft and smooth, but why does it have to be in almost every set :P

But if we forget the pencil (which of course is great if you don’t own it already!) and focus on the shadows, this is kinda fun palette.
Personally I like dark and bright colors, I really don’t use pastels or shimmery nudes. Feminine palette has both bold colors and pastel-shimmery colors. As a bonus it has Ecstasy, which is a S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G shade when applied over black base (such as NYX jumbo pencil Black Bean, or the UD Zero pencil).
So this palette really is surprisingly versatile.

I love the colors they have picked for this palette, because it really creates an image of girly, feminine style¬† (and because I didn’t yet own 4 of 6 shadows, yay!).

Versatile palette that is great for creating both light pastel looks, as well as darker smokey looks. Because of the primer and black pencil this one is also great one to take with you to travel, although it’s missing white highlighter (SWF MAY work for someone, I wasn’t convinced ).
