Have this in Baked Smokes & Baked sugar
I got this when it first came out which was $12-$15. but now its $8-$10.
either way I find this pretty expensive for being a drugstore product.
They are ultra shimmery and sheer, not really pigmented. sometime can come off chalky on your eyes.
I'm almost done with Baked sugar so I am going to review this one first
Its basically your skin but shimmery, only because its very sheer. I used all three (not at the same time) to brighten up my eyes. I used the two brown colors most, and have completely gone through it. I remembered it being very messy, meaning over time my whole face got shimmery from the shadow on my eyes.
now I only have the white color left, which is the most pigmented out of them all. I tried it as a eye brightener, I wouldnt suggest this since its sooo white and shimmery its not good at all. however I have been using it as a highligher which kinda work. but since I am almost done with it (project pan) I am going to deal with it. There is still fall out but i guess since its on my upper cheek bone it doesnt fly all over the place (dry skin oily lids maybe). but I love this shadow as a highligher
the two lighter shades on the dome looks completely different but when you apply on your eyes they look completely the same. I was obsessed with this trio because I used to do nothing but smokey eye but now I have gone to natural. I do turn to this trio when i have date night.
I love this trio HOWEVER the only problem I have with this is the same problem with the baked sugar. With baked sugar you can't tell with fall out as much because theres no color to it. but with baked smokes... theres no getting away with it. I suggest using a primer.
with the packaging, I had both lids on both trios broke on me, the packaging is just very cheap and poor quality. it is also bulky. The sponge tip allwas falls out but if you really put it in there, it gets stuck and is impossible to take out unless you have long nails to dig it out.
NOTE if you use these dry expect tons of fall outs, HOWEVER if you wet your brush a little, there will still be fall out but not as much.
I do love the look it gives, if it didnt have so much fall out. Once I have gone through the two trio that i have I will not be repurchasing this.I would not recommend this at all to anyone with oily lids
I was so pleased with this e/s :) I bought the Butter and Gingersnap and both colors brought out my green eyes so much! I've been using the sponge applicator it came with and use it wet. Using it dry is too subtle for me but it's still nice. The colors blend like cream eyeshadow but don't crease. Ah-mazinggg! Will be buying more of the colors in this collection. Highly recommended.
AHHH I LOOVE this. I would compare this to MAC quality. Wearing them wet that it. This also lasts you FORVER! Give it a try and youll be surprised. These colors actually DO work together which I find isnt true for most " pro picked color palettes "
i really do enjoy this trio its perfect for everyday looks maybe for work and just overall day looks and if you want to wear a little more intense just use wet for night looks but this is truly a great find the shadows colors compliment one another the texture is more of a satin finish right amount of shimmer and its pretty convinient for traveling this has been my go to when it comes to just trowing a few shadows into my purse i definetly wantg to buy the other colors!
These are actually a lot smaller in real life than how they appear online. The texture is not quite a powder - it's more like a cream, very similar to Almay Bright Eyes Cream Eyeshadow and Revlon Beyond Natural Cream to Powder Eyeshadow. I do believe it is better because it doesn't dissolve into a mass of glittery Vaseline within an hour like the other two.
I've tried Baked Sands and it's okay, it's more copper based which wasn't what I was looking for. See separate review for Baked Oatmeal and Smokes.
But overall - decent lasting power and pigmentation.

PRICE  $20 AUD | PACKAGING  | REPURCHASE [yes]
very pretty with blue eyes :) put gold in inner corners and the dark brown all over and under eye lid. pretty.
I bought this in 'baked smokes'.
I like this eyeshadow but it is a little too expensive for me (approx $8).
If you use it wet, it does last a lot longer on your eyes than if you use it dry, and there's less mess.
I wish there were more colors to choose from though.
* Dermatologist approved.
* Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
I have this in baked oatmeal and i love it. love the lightest color for highlight and love the darkest color for outer "V" two of the 3 shadow "bubbles" broke though, but i didnt drop it =[ the colors are well pigmented and are easy to blend. i recommend this trio!
The colors are great, easy to blend dry. I am Asian w/ skin that sometimes is harder for colors to show up on. Stays on all day (and I'm a sweaty girl). I like how it's shimmery but not glittery. I'm a professional and i don't want to be looking like I'm going out clubbing at 10 a.m. Packaging IS a bit bulky, but since I don't need to reapply, I leave it at home! I'm going to buy a few other colors to round out my collection haha.
I owned this product and loved it for awhile... but now that I've tried it again and am more experienced in makeup, I've revised this review.
PROS: Great, soft neutral colors and contains a decent amount of shadow that lasts awhile. Slightly more shimmer than a matte, but not as OTT as the PF Shimmerstrips.
CONS: My only complaint is that the powder is a little hard (which isn't really a problem if use it as a wet shadow, but can be a little annoying if applied dry).
Overall, a nice basic product but not HG.
