I don't really wear eyeshadow too often but this eyeshadow makes me a beleiver. The shades are beautiful, especially the silver and charcoal, which make for a perfect smoky eye. They are super pigmented dry, but with the addition of water they basically turn into an ultra pigmented shadow cream. The are also very shimerry but in a gorgeous and sophisticated way. They stay on all day, wet or dry, and onto the next morning and this is without any primer. Also, they never ever crease. I have oily lids so this is quite a feat. All in all this is a top notch eye shadow palette and I will definitely try the other combinations. YSL never seems to fail.
