A plus...best ??...Great set for beginners!...Perform better without a primer - the metallic eyeshadows are the best formula in the palette - cream highlighters are okay and I like them better used a base to powder highlighters or as a blush topper - powder blushes are nicely pigmented, blend out easily and long wearing.
