If you are in the market for a comprehensive, quality palette, the Smashbox Master Class Palette (aka the Master Class 11, Meet The Masters Palette) is just the ticket. With 28 shadows in a variety of matte and shimmer, neutral and bright shades, 8 cream liners, 2 blushes, 3 Soft Lights highlights, and 4 high pigment lip glosses, just about any look desired can be created.
I purchased the palette at Sephora and did a video review and swatches. Everything is quality in this set. The Master Class shadows have good pigment and staying powder, the liners are quality as usual, the blushes have excellent pigment, and the glosses are quite nice. The shadows are decent enough size for a palette and the blushes are downright huge. The colors are also covered by a plastic protector that flips up. I like that for keeping things cleaner in terms of powder flying around while it is closed and being transported. The video at the end of this post shows it pretty well, if you would like a better look.
Below are photos of the swatches from the Smashbox Master Class set. These shadows appear in other Smashbox items, so these can be a good reference if you are looking for swatches of things like the shades in the Smashbox Photo Op Eyeshadow Trios as well:

For my Master Class 11 Palette video review see below. I plan to do videos of a lot of my swatches from here on out, so consider subscribing to my new YouTube channel as well for updates!
Overall, I highly recommend this palette. These are quality items and, at $ 59 ($250 value), it is a heck of a good deal! It seriously is one of the best overall palettes I have seen in quite some time, given the excellent section, overall pigment quality, and price. I am extremely happy that I bought it!
