It must be my coloring, but I love this duo. I don't find the colors to be chalky at all. The lighter color is a grayish-white, which works great as a highlighter; I use it on eyelids sometimes but really like it on browbone. The darker color looks so smoky grey-green and compliments my hazel eyes, bringing out the green in them. I use it as an eyeliner and sometimes in the crease, even if wearing a pinkish or tan color on my lids. Makes my eyes pop. I have olive skn that rarely burns in the sun. Maybe if I was very fair or had reddish undertones to my skin, this might not be for me, but I really like it a lot.
This shade was a disapointment for me. There is this light chalky grey and a very greyish darker green shade. I could not get these shades to blend naturally with my skin tone and I looked cheap with my make up. The lasting power was not as good with this as with the brown ones I have used.
