The eyeshadows blend themselves, and all of the shades are gorgeous. For the face products, “Terracotta” is a warmer shade, so I use this as a bronzer, and “Desert” works as a contour (although I do prefer ABH “Fawn” over it, because it is even cooler). “Timber” works perfect as another deepening shade for eyeshadow. There is “Ember” (medium warm brown) to “Onyx” (black) when deepening an eye look, as those shades are just so different from each other. If you want a truly smooth blend, you want to use as many shades as possible to make a nice smooth gradient. Therefore, after using “Ember”, I apply “Timber”, and then if I want the look to be even more defined, I use “Onyx”. Moral of the story is, every single shade in this palette is super useful and high quality.
