I got this palette during the Victoria's Secret Semiannual sale, mainly because of the price ($29.50) and the quantity of items included in the kit. The kit comes with 30 eyeshadows, 5 lipsticks, 5 glosses, 4 blushes, 5 brushes, 1 luminous powder, 1 translucent powder, 1 bronzer, 1 mascara, 1 lip liner, and 1 eyeliner.
I like this kit because its convenient. It has made packing my makeup essentials for trips SOOOO much easier. I can just throw this case in my bag and keep it moving. The eyeshadows have an ok pigment level, they're definitely not as densely pigmented as MAC. Also, its kind of hit or miss with some of the shades, some of them have a better color payoff than others. The top performers from the eyeshadows were the darker colors, hands down. Some of the lighter colors were a little on the chalky side to me and that took away points for me. That said, all of the colors are really pretty and I have a ton of options if I am looking for a more casual, day look or a heavier, night look. Also, the eyeshadows stay put and applied a lot better when I used my primer potion.

I would recommend the Hello Bombshell makeup kit to my friends or anyone in the market for a good travel kit that's not super expensive. If you don't want to risk losing or damaging your more expensive makeup products during travel this is probably a good kit for you. Its worked out for me so far and I'm planning on traveling with this kit until the wheels fall off. :)
