I bought this shade as a colour match for a discontinued Revlon shade. It looked very similar in store but in natural light the shade lacked depth. No matter, I thought I'd enjoy a twist on my original shade and adapt. I have been disappointed in the product overall. The shadow really doesn't have enough pigment and on my light complexion, makes me looked tired and washed out. I'm not happy with the staying power either. After a few hours, all that remained was a pale glittery lid which offered no enhancement to my blue eyes. I would be reluctant to purchase another shimmer wash eye shadow in any shade.
I loved the colors of Bobbi Brown's shadows but they are so soft and no matter how much shadow base and translucent powder I put on my lids first, this shadow won't blend properly and goes on blotchy. I get patches of dark and no matter what I do I can't get rid of them. Total waste of money and too bad because the colors are awesome.
The packaging is really nice and sleek although there is actually very little product for the price you're paying. I like the colour, it is a sheer mauve colour that's definitely buildable. The staying power is also decent and it leaves my lips feeling moisturized
I would call this product silvered lilac, as it is a greyed lilac with silver shimmer, that didn't do much for me--gave me a sort of corpse like bluish lipped effect. I can see how this can be a pretty color for a DDD or MMM, but I am a PPP and I could not pull it off.
I am totally in love with this product! It's awesome! The color is the perfect, natural taupe with a hint of lavendar in it that looks great with everything. My cousin was here when I received it (wave to DCWL!) as a swap. She is a true PPP and I am olive-toned (at my lightest I'm MAC NC35). Anyway, we both tried it on and it was great! It's a color that flatters almost anyone (I can't imagine who it wouldn't). And, it's lasted all day (work, playing with baby, etc.). Very flattering.
