The shade names are not listed on the palette, but they are given on the NYX website as (from left to right, top row) Ice Queen, Soft Light, Cream, Nectar, then (bottom row) Tan, Toffee, Sculpt, and Hollow.
Tan is a matte medium brown with red undertones. Toffee is a darker version of Tan, still pulling reddish and warm. NYX says this is a matte but it swatches slightly satiny and when I inspect the pan closely, I swear I can see gold shimmer throughout. Sculpt is a matte taupe and the closest thing in the palette to what I like seeing in a contour shade: cool-ish in tone and a little grey. Hollow is a deep brown with a slight red undertone.
The textures of the shades overall are soft, buttery, and very blendable (Sculpt and Hollow are slightly less buttery-feeling though) and the pigmentation is very good across the board.

The other major problem I have is that the contour shades run a bit warm. I consider the four shades to have more in common with matte bronzers than contour products (and if you ask me, yes there is a difference between the two.) If you are in the market for a highlighting/bronzing palette or just prefer contouring with matte bronzers, then great! You'll like this palette a lot. It doesn't quite hit the mark for me, shade-wise.
