I've been trying out the Sephora shadows since they came out, and one thing hasn't changed--the case is terrible. However, the product itself has greatly improved. This new line of matte shadows is highly pigmented, goes on smoothly, and lasts as long as any other good quality shadow. I am very pleaesed that Sephora has finally improved the shadow quality and come out with a matte version. They just need to work on the packaging a little, which is still prone to breakage. Mat no. 7 is a beautiful dark purple/amethyst color that makes my brown eyes really pop. Great as a shadow/contour as well as a liner. Such a great price (only 10 bucks!) for a quality product. Will be purchasing more shades.
