Edit: this trio crumbled two months into buying. annoyed. I knocked off a point for that as I lost half the product and would not buy again.
Don't normally wear nudes, but got a job I have to wear formal office drag for (full suits and neutral make up) so went and bought 17 as I heard good reviews for their eyeshadows.
It's slightly metalic in that is has a dewy shine to it rather than a true matt. it stayed in place through a very long and greuling day full of demanding over-stuffed people. Not the most blendable of colours, but ok. Very good pigmentation, had no fall out putting it on with a brush. a lot came up from the pallette though. Colours are a touch dark for me/the draconian office, but I can thin it out.
But at £3.49 for a trio, I think it really performs exceptionally well. I think I like Beauty UK better for cheap make up that performs excellently - far beyond expectation, but this is nothing to moan at either.
I like the little trio circle that has defined space. I really hate trios and quads with nothing separating the colours. It's half decently sturdy but I doubt it would take a beating from being in a teen age hand bag.
