Everything I posted about Yamal applies equally to this shadow. I actually purchased them at the same time and it seemed a big mistake at the time. You can read my review of Yamal....everything I said about this eye shadow also applies to Nambia, including how I learned to make it work (thank you, Temptalia). However, I am crazy over this shadow. In spite of the difficulties and the small pan and the trouble I have of opening it up (there goes my manicure) this shadow does wonders for my brown eyes. I have aging eyes, I have hooded eyes, but this product really makes my eyes look rested and popped at the same time. I don't try to conceal the fact that my eyes are very hooded with this shadow, I just pack it on the lid and blend it out in the crease and above and it is a very enhancing and subdued look. I am pleased, I would repurchase if I lost or broke this little pan.
