Brilliant color and loooong lasting
I have this in Raisin. I absolutely love this shadow and color. I use it as more of a transition color between my browbone and crease, but it also makes a lovely lid color. I'm always surprised to see so few reviews about Ben Nye products. The are superb quality at ridicilously cheap prices.
These shadows will last all day with a primer underneath. I have been out in crazy heat and humidity and this stuff will-not-budge! It blends very easily and you get a lot of product. I can't wait to try some more colors.
The previous reviewer got it right; Raisin is a warm matte brown eyeshadow with a hint of wine (or you could describe it has a brown rusty kind of color) and is simply beautiful. This eyeshadow has quickly become one of my favorites because it is great as a lid, crease and outer V color – I just love this eyeshadow. As with all Ben Nye eyeshadows it has a wonderfully smooth texture, is finely milled, blends beautifully and has staying power.
The best thing about it is that it comes in a 36mm pro-pan and only costs $6 and can be purchased from The International Fun-Shop (www.stagemakeuponline.com). I am not only thoroughly impressed with this beautiful but also the customer service of The International Fun-Shop. I will definitely buy this eyeshadow again & again and I will continue to shop with this vendor for many years to come.
Raisin is a warm brown with a hint of wine. One of the most used shades in my collection. Works well as blush and e/s. Super pigmented. True color on all skintones. Easy to apply or blend. Love Love Love BenNye. Cost $6 for palette refills. (NW45 or HIP818)
