Even with the primer potion underneath, the second and third sparkly colors don't really stay or pack a punch by the end of the day. I had to brush away fallout for the second color quite often, to the extent that my under eye area reminded me of sparkly tinkerbell makeup!
All around the $48 plus tax was well spent. The set includes a flat synthetic brush that helps you pack on the shadow very well and which cleans very easily with a hand wipe or your favorite brush cleaner. It also comes with a miniature size of the primer potion (the container that had all the makeup gurus up in arms because it's inefficient).
I am getting a lot of mileage out of the light and dark colors, and some of the sparkling ones are great under the mattes for an unexpected pop when layered just so. I would definitely buy this again. In regards to the NAKED II palette, I wouldn't really want to buy that until I've hit pan on several of the current palette's colors. Which looks like it will be a while, because, even with daily use, a light touch has gone far.
NOTE: As I was searching the Ulta page for a photo to add to this blog post, I just realized the price has gone up to $50 plus tax.
