I love this duo! I use it almost everyday because I only do neutral makeup. I use the the beige color for my brown bone and the brown color for my crease. Having this makes my makeup application so much faster in the morning when I'm in a hurry. It's too steps of my eye shadow application in one. I'm running out of this and have been trying to find it at drugstores to repurchase, but I've been out of luck. Hopefully, I can find it somewhere because I really can't do without this.
I bought this when I was looking for a non-shimmery eye shadow(I have enough shimmer for a lifetime). A duo of nice neutral, matte shades- exactly what I'd been looking for.
The dark shade is gorgeous- pigmented, close to matte, neutral yet dark enough to be dramatic if I applied really intensely. But the lighter shade? It doesn't show up at all. I'm sure it would show up on a fair-skinned individual, but since I'm tanned, it blends right in with my skin tone, and you can't tell I have it on. Oh, well. The darker shade makes up for it.
I would repurchase, just for the darker shade.
I love this.
First off, I have tried just about every single nude/everyday drugstore palette there is, everything from Maybelline to Revlon tto Almay Physcian's Formula, Covegirl. I've tried so many palettes/duos/trios, and I think I've finally found my HG!
I am quite fair, and this duo does really suit my skin tone, I use the light shade as a crease shade to add just a bit of definition, and then I use the darker shade and press it into the crease, while lining my eyes and setting my eyeshadow. What I really like about this is that I can also use this to contour my face! The lighter shade mixed with a little bit of the brown shade makes a perfect contour shade for me, and I sometimes do that for touch ups or when I'm in a hurry in the morning and can't be bothered to reach for another product.
It's pigmented, the colors are perfect for me, I love the cute little mirror that comes with it, and it's cheap! What more can you ask for?
The dark shadow in this duo is great. Nice pigment blends easily but the other shade is the same shade as my skin and is pointless and it hardly even shows up on me. I only use the dark shadow with other shadows. I could see people that have fair skin would like the lighter shade also. I wouldn't repurchase this only for the dark shade but if you have a fair complection and your looking for a non shimmery neutral look and find this on sale it would be a good deal since both shades would probably show up on you not just the darker one like me.
This product is pointless on me. The beige does not show up on my skin at all and my skin is not that dark (Mediterranean complexion, not tanned since it is wintertime). The dark brown is similar to every other dark brown but I can use it as a liner.
THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE MOST PIGMENTED DRUGSTORE EYESHADOW!!! Excellent color payoff, minimum fallout, interesting shade combinations. Even some higher end brands don't hold a candle to Loreal Hip shadows!!!
This is my go-to every day shadow. It complements my eyes perfectly. I put the lighter color under my lower lashes as well and it makes my eyes look bigger and brighter. I'm kind of in love with this duo. I can definitely see how this would be just average and comparable to many other products available, but for some reason these two colors are perfect for my skin tone and eyes. If I want to add a little shine I use the goldish-silver metallic in the Electrified duo in inner corners of my eye.
the very first eyeshadow ive completely used up. the lighter shade is barely touched though. it doesnt do much for me. the darker shade is amazing, ive been looking for a deep matte brown for a while now and i plan on stocking up when it goes on sale. perfect for everyday, its my go to shadow.
EDIT: still my alltime favorite brown shadow. i use daily and just found it at cvs for half off! i honesty use this more than my naked palette. def go out and buy this!!! even thought the lighter shade is useless, i would still gladly pay the same price for just the brown shade.
I am a CCC. This shade combo did nothing for me. The lighter shade disappears on me. In my opinion would not do anything for darker skin tones.
ETA: I now really enjoy this combo. It looks great for a more natural look. I have a darker complexion (think Halle Berry) and the lighter shade is difficult to see but it evens out my lids and the darker brown adds dimension to my lids. Really like these.
I love this so much, and I bought it on a whim! I'm usually not a huge fan of matte shades, but these two make the perfect natural looking brown smoky eye for daytime. The lighter brown is just the right colour to even out my lids and blend, I'm NC30 so it just looks like my skin, but if you're lighter than it would show up. Both colours are so wonderfully pigmented, it's amazing for the price. I actually bought it because the name "shady" reminded me of slim shady XD. Love this, love Eminem.
