Repeats from other Maybelline 12 pan palettes:
I don't know if it's just in my head, but I feel like the repeats in the Brights palette are actually more pigmented than the shades in the original Nudes palette.

My overall thoughts...

Once again, as in the Smokes palette, I am somewhat on the fence about this palette. Some shades are good and some are pretty crappy. I like the idea of these large palettes at drugstore prices, but I think the actual product could be improved greatly.

It seems that Maybelline does not do mattes very well because both of the mattes in this palette are patchy and weak.

The two purples (Shades 6 & 7) I was really looking forward to are very disappointing.

Highlights of this palette? Shades 10, 11, 12
Super disappointments of this palette? Shades 4, 6, 7
