Sleek original palette (worth the hype?)

Background info:
 I purchased this product because of the amount of hype it received among youtube, I was quite excited to purchase it for a reasonable price of  £6.49 for 12 eyeshadows.
First impressions:
At first I thought it was an amazing product even persuading my friend to buy it herself, I used it everyday for around 3 weeks and used it in many of my tutorials as the eyeshadows are very pigmented and gorgeous colours.

 Soon after I realised many of these colours weren't being used such as the purples, blues, greens and blacks, I was only really using the 3 neutrals and would find that after using these eyeshadows there would be a huge amount of fallout under my eyes making me look like the grudge haha! I have ended up hardly using this now and tend to go more for my Beauty UK palettes as they're alot cheaper and I prefer their formula.
Overall I feel like they are okay eyeshadows and great if you tend to use alot of bright colours or if not the storm palette is great if your okay with wiping off the fallout afterwards. I don't think that these eyeshadows are the kind that I would use as I even tried them with a primer and that just caused more annoyance as I couldn't blend the shadows.
If I could go back I would probably buy the storm palette rather then this palette although I still don't think that I would get on with that palette either as it would still have alot of fallout and would easily smudge. So for now I think I'll stick with my BeautyUK palettes.
P.S Thanks to all my new followers! <3
