Super shiny with the morning sun.

More shiny pics...
EX-15

EX-16

EX-17

So here are some clean and serious pics without the shiny bits getting in the way.

Just in case the shot above wasn't enough

Compared to other SUQQU shades that look similar in pan form.
If one set wasn't brand new I would not be able to tell what is what in a freestyle palette..honestly.
For the green set, photoshop tells me that ex-12 is a desaturated yellow-green while ex-17 is a desaturated orange-yellow
I had a "huh?" moment when it showed up darker on my skin because the pan shade is so close.

Want to play spot the difference?
EX-16 is ever so slight more pink and cooler when looking at it in person.
PNGs look better in PS, they look weird in browsers.
Addiction Fudge+Sandbar look almost like this


Just in case you were wondering if that EX-16 shade is similar to all the other gold shades.  

Face Palette EX-03 in shade during afternoon (it's pink here...)
Face Palette EX-03 with direct morning sunlight on different surface. (it looks peachy/coral here)
Do you think if I tie up all of the face palette brushes (from 3 palettes) I would have a cheek/face brush? jk lol

Bright Up Lipstick EX-01 MITSUDAIDAI (shot in sunlight)

If you were curious about how similar they are.

Enough pictures right?
If not then check out Kate's EX-17 swatches and eye look.
Whyericawhy also has nice photos and eyelooks.  (I think the accent color is applied on top of black gel liner like all of her other looks and she has a demo video on how she does the looks using other SUQQU palettes)  

I encourage responsible spending, even though they are limited edition and pretty. I hope all those pictures help you decide what is right for you. 
A more affordable high quality colorful option for the eyeshadows is the Shiseido Eye Color Bar palette rrp $50 USD.
