Nice, sturdy palette made out of plastic that closes really well ! It might be shiny, but it's not that easy to leave any fingerprints on it, like you would with the old Coastal Scents 88 palettes for example! That's really good, because I hate fingerprints on my makeup, they make everything look dirty and gross! Yikes!
When you open the palette there's a nice, big mirror inside, which you can definitely use to do/touchup your makeup if you're on the go! ;)
Keep in mind that this palette is not magnetic, which means that if you put any other eyeshadow inside it won't stay in place, you will need to attach a little piece of magnetic sheet to it! Artdeco single eyeshadows (blushes, camouflage creams etc) come already with a little magnet attached to them!
The 2 palettes I have hold 12 single eyeshadows each, I think there's a smaller version too, but I can't figure it out at Artdeco's website! You can also fit in there Artdeco Camouflage Cream (it's as big as 2 single eyeshadows) and Artdeco Blushes (I don't own any, but judging from the pictures on the website it's as big as 3 single eyeshadows) ! A great idea would be to fit in there 6-7 single eyeshadows, a camouflage cream and a blush and you would have a pretty complete palette for the weekend! ;)
Here's a close-up of the palettes:
I can't remember the retail price for these palettes, because it's been a long time since I bought them, but I think they're about 9-10 Euros! The palettes I have are from the regular line, but every season Artdeco comes out with palettes that have GORGEOUS designs on them!! They're a bit more expensive than the regular line palettes, but they're so pretty!! Here are some old designs to get an idea:
The last two are GORGEOUS:
