Makeup Revolution’s Mermaids vs Unicorns Redemption palette

I knew I’d be interested in this palette as soon as I spotted it on the Makeup Revolution site. Lots of cooler colors - which I like - but enough other shades that it’s possible to build daily looks using just these colors. These colors go on fairly nice, though the ninth one (the rose shimmer that looks like it should be a lot cooler) was a bit softer than anticipated. I had to apply more eyeshadow to get the color payoff.
