It contains 10 creamy gel like shades and a little brush. I like more subdued classic shades but this was a great experiment… one that paid off. I’ve never owned metallic colours and I didn’t realise just how flattering they can be. I found that the colours do wear off by the afternoon to give you a muted stain of the original colour. It makes a great gift for a friend or someone special and there’s a colour for every mood or occasion.
