I own earthling. The color are nice, but when I apply it flicks of shadow go all over causing me to have to wash my face and redo it. Does that mean it's not very finely milled? Hm.
Beautiful color selection, excellent color payoff, inexpensive, widely available, and the company doesn't test on animals. Ding ding ding! I have these palettes in Earthling and Techno and love them both. The Earthling colors are extremely flattering with my skin tone. My only problems with these palettes are minor, considering how great this product is overall: the dark purple in the Techno palette is not as true a purple as it could be and can get a little muddy throughout the day, especially without a primer. Also, the top of my Techno case cracked and the Earthling top detached completely. But again, minor issues, in my opinion, especially since I have had both of these palettes for years, and they have traveled all over the place with me. These are difficult to beat in value!
prestige wins me over again. i use these exclusively now. the color combos are just right, every shade is a knockout and i like these better than my mac shadows, i'm swapping away all my mac shadows because prestige has it for me. love it!! love this quad too, couldn't be more happy.
This is hands down my favorite eyeshadow palette ever. Beautiful, versatile colors and fantastic quality for a bargain price - what more could I ask for?
The dark brown is a matte shade that does triple duty as a shadow, liner, and brow powder. I do wish that it was slightly darker, but it is still a beautiful chocolate brown that I use frequently.
The sparkly champagne shade is an absolute showstopper. If I'm going out at night or just feel in a party mood, this shadow gives my lids a shimmery glittery burst of color that is fun and playful, while the neutral shade keeps it from looking too gaudy or costume-y. I find that I get the best color payoff from this shadow when I use my pinky finger to apply it. I swipe my finger across the strip of shadow and then smooth it across my lids. The bigger glitter particles tend to fall down onto my cheeks but I don't care. For the cheap drugstore price, it's astounding how pigmented this shadow is.
Next is a shimmery pale peachy shade that is great for everyday wear. Not much to say except that it's a basic must-have shade, and Prestige does it perfectly.
Lastly, a shimmery ivory shade which is ideal for highlighting your brow bones and the corners of your eyes. I have small asian eyes and I like to use white eyeliner on my waterline, and then I use this shadow to set it and to blend the liner out a bit beneath my lashes. It really opens and brightens up my eyes. Like the peach shade, this is a basic must-have shade and I'm so happy that Prestige has put all these colors into one palette.
For me, this is the perfect palette because it does night and day looks equally well in beautiful neutrals. If I could only have one eyeshadow palette, this would be it.
Like Milani's Java Bean, this palette somehow worked its way into my daily make-up routine. The darker brown works great as a liner, crease color, or to fill in my brows--I've also used it for a great brown smokey eye that was gorgeous! The sparkly bronze goes on very sparkly, so it's a wonderful accent to use to make your eyes look bigger. Now, the color that I absolute love and use every single day is the sheer peachy color. This is my absolute favorite wash. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll line my eyes with Java bean or the brown in this palette and wash with this sheer, shimmery peach for a very pretty no-fuss look. The bone color is great for brow bones as well as the corners of your eye, and once again is a color I use often. This palette is perfection! I'm on my second as I used up all of the shimmery peach and brown in my first, and I would be more than happy to buy a third. I would love to know the individual eyeshadow names, however :S
I got this item as a birthday present, so I don't really know how much it costs! I'm assuming it's fairly cheap though, as Prestige products normally are. I love this palette! The colors are great (some are shimmery, some are matte) and look nice on my brown eyes. I also like using the three lighter colors as face highlighters! Works just like a Shimmerbrick.
Oh yeah-this is what I'm talking about! I bought this quad ($6 for 8g) because, as someone who already likes Prestige shadows, I wanted a compact palette, and this delivers! This compact (2.75" x 2.75") offers 4 neutral tones, as described below. While this is larger than the multicolour shadow pans (in the regular Prestige section), the fact that they're separated make them easier to use. The shadows are the usual great Prestige quality, and the colours are basic, so they'd make a "no-brainer" workday eye. These were originally a promo item, but are now a permanent part of the line--woo hoo!
