Other than that I highly recommend this palette, especially for melanin rich skin-tones....however i wanted something with a bit more coverage so was disappointed, I feel it may have been the lack of color choices, i have indian/medium skin tone and mild dark circles and this palette in the shade medium did not provide enough coverage for my dark circles.
