Makeup Revolution Euphoria Bronzed Palette

I picked up this Euphoria eyeshades and contouring palette at the beginning of the Summer.
I really liked the look of all the shades, and thought it would be good for travelling as you have all your powder products in one single palette. The palette itself is made of sturdy hard plastic and has a secure click closure with a huge mirror in the lid.
Inside, there are six neutral toned shimmery eyeshadows - as well as a bronzer, blush and
highlighter.

I am  really impressed with these eyeshadows - they're really pigmented, apply smoothly and evenly with no for out and last about 5/6 hours (no primer) and 8 hours+ (with primer). They're all shimmer shades, however the bronzer also looks gorgeous worn as a matte shadow and can be paired with any of the above shimmer shades.

The first shade is a pale white with a slight metallic finish to it, ideal as a inner corner or brow highlight.
The second shade is a metallic pale peachy pink shade, it has a very soft almost velvet texture. This shade is again great as an inner corner highlight, or would be lovely on the centre of the eyelid to brighten any look.
The third shade is a metallic cool toned pale pewter shade - again this is a great shade to use to brighten any look by using it on the inner half or on the centre of the lid.

The first shade is a very warm golden copper shade with a orange undertone to it. It has a very smooth texture and is the most pigmented shade out of of the six.
The second shade  is a purple with a gold metallic finish. Again this has a very smooth texture and looks lovely applied to the eyelid, or in the crease.
The third shade is a olive green metallic shade with a lot of gold going through it, again it has a velvety smooth texture and looks great on the eyelid, in the crease or even in the outer corner.

Bronzer- This is a neutral toned matte bronzer - it does not look too dark or in anyway orange on me. It applies evenly, has decent pigmentation and blends out beautifully - but it can be easily built up for a darker more intense bronze look.
Blusher- This is a gorgeous peach shade - it does have quite a lot of golden shimmer through it, which gives it an almost metallic finish. Personally I wouldn't really wear the blush and highlight together. I found that if I wear the blusher along my cheekbone (as I usually do), the shimmer in the blush is enough highlighter for me.
Highlighter- This is a pale peach toned shade with a golden metallic finish. It has a very smooth texture, and gives an intense almost wet look to the skin. It's an ideal shade to use at this time of year to help achieve a Summer glow. This shade is also a gorgeous inner corner highlight.

Unfortunately, I have noticed if I wear the face powders in this palette for more then a few days in a row, tiny bumps start appearing under my skin. (I have really sensitive skin)  it's such a pity because I really like all three shades.
My skin reaction aside, I would still recommend this palette as I think for £6/€8 it's definitely worth it even for the eyeshadows alone (which I didn't have any reaction to). Not only do I think they're ideal shades for this time of year, I also think the three darker eyeshadows would look lovely in the Autumn as well Link!

Above: I am wearing the bronzer lightly applied to the contours of my face, with the blusher along my cheekbones and the highlighter applied along the tops of my cheekbones.
On my eyes - I have the first shade in the palette as a brow bone highlight, the second to last (purple) shade in the palette in my crease and the olive green shade on my eyelid form lash line to crease, with the second shade in the palette as my inner corner highlight.

I'd love to know if you've tried this palette, and what you think of it.
