These shadow crumble and hardly had any pay off beside fine shimmer!
For reference, I am an NC20-25 depending on the season with strong yellow undertones.
I think the palette itself is quite pretty with its sturdy clear packaging and eyeshadow design. The eyeshadows are a slightly harder texture, so they are not at all powdery but a bit more sheer than what I'm used to. All the colors are shimmery: a light red-toned gold, a mid-tone copper, and a deep coppery-bronze. While the colors are pretty, I was disappointed that this palette was too orangey-red for my skin and I would even sometimes get people asking me if I was sick or hurt.
Perhaps my skin has such a strong yellow undertone that it pulls out the orangey-reddish in this otherwise bronzy palette. I would caution against this palette if you are very yellow, otherwise people might also ask you if you are sick. :(
These colors make my hazel eyes pop! The quality of the shadow is great--the colors are very easy to blend for both a light day look and a more dramatic night look! I bought this shadow set along with the green one at a BOGO sale.
These colors are very warm. Personally I can only wear them with warm toned clothing. They are shimmery but create more of a sheen which is totally wearable for day. You get a ton of product in the case and I love the cute square packaging. I don't think I would ever buy this at full price but at discount price these are good enough.
This is a gorgeous trio of shimmery neutrals that anybody could wear. I just found this at the 99 Cent Only store (which should be renamed the $1 Store but it would probably cost too much to change all their signs) so I'm sure it's discontinued now. If you are lucky enough to find it, pick it up!
I love this one. I bought the plum, olive and copper shadows. I enjoy this one the most. I can use all the colors and it looks good. I can't say the same for the other two. I wear this color everyday. I am not big on bold makeup so I like that you can see it but it isn't out there. I also love the way the package looks. That's why I bought it :). CVS and Walgreens seem to randomly have the colors 50% off. I would never buy this full price. It wasn't that great.
It has the most awesome glittery, but not over powering look! There is like glitter gold on you r eyes! And it packaging is sooo pretty. my only 2 cons are:
1) (important) They can make your skin look really dry and flaky. b/c it so shimmery.
2) this and "Make a Sheen" look almost exactly alike on your eyes.
I have grabbed a few of this one and the olive it up for gifts at ULTA. They are 5 FOR $10 along with some other stuff for a while (end of december? not sure). Again i used my 3.5 off $10 coupon. So 5 for $6.5. What do u think? ;) Haven't started to use yet, just wanted to announce the ongoing sale.
After I bought this shadow in Plum Like It Hot, I wanted to try all these shadows! They're amazing and one of my two favourite shadow brands (I also love HiP duos)! Today I got Espress'o Yourself, Show Stopper Copper, & Olive It Up. So now I have all four of these Make A Sheen shadows and this is probably my favourite! They're all beautiful shades and all blend well/last a long time, but I really like this one best!
Love it. Three great shades to mix together depending on my mood. I love the artsy package too. Too bad these are LE. I think I'm going to buy up some more this week while they're BOGO. These are awesome. The sheen is great, and the colors fit together perfectly.
