They swatched very nicely. I haven't tried them on the lid yet. I'm a little scared of them b/c the texture does feel heavy. I don't know how to describe it exactly. Maybe like how the Makeup Geek foiled shadows swatched beautifully for everyone, but then a lot of people had problems with them creasing once on the lid.
Hmmm. Or maybe like the MUFE Artist shadows? I think I'm just going to wait until there are more reviews on these before I decide. I am definitely not looking to spend over $200 on a 28 pan palette of shadows I'm not certain are going to move the earth for me lol. Especially given the number of palettes I own as it is! *sigh*
