Lorac Mega PRO Palette 2 - Review

I got the Lorac Mega PRO Palette 2 at Ulta for $59 (before tax) and it came with a free mini Lorac Pro Plus Fiber mascara with this at checkout. As far as the higher-end eyeshadow palettes at Ulta go.. I do seem to love Lorac's the best of all because they're just nicely pigmented and soft with nice colors. This is my second eyeshadow palette purchase from Lorac as I also have the Unzipped palette. I do feel the Unzipped palette eyeshadows are actually a bit better quality compared to this palette.
On my eyes I'm wearing Custard, Sugar, Burlap, Gold Leaf, and Black
In this palette I found the lighter off-white shades not really as pigmented as the medium to darker shades, and most all the shades are either a matte or satin finish (which I love) although Black Ivy really seemed to be the only shade that was matte with a slight glitter in it. Keep in mind what I'm calling a "satin" Lorac calls a "shimmer". The shades with a * I felt were probably my favorite shades in this palette, although I do feel this is a really nice palette of natural earth tone shades.

Porcelain - Light matte off-white shade
Bisque - A bright light off-white matte shade with a pink undertone
Sugar - A slightly more muted version of Porcelain and it's a satin
Moonlight - A satin off-white shade with a yellow/white-gold undertone

Custard - An off-white matte nude/skintone shade
Lavender* - A matte pale lavender shade
