Shades: Baked smokes, Baked sands
I love these shades and the texture. Blends really well and is great for a natural look or glam/night look. The shadow stays on all day without wearing off. My only complaint would be that sometimes the product crumbles around the edges, but that's only happened a few times. Definitely recommend. I always get compliments and people asking me what I use!
I own Baked Oatmeal. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite eyeshadows. The darkest color is a chocolately golden brown, the medium is a silvery golden taupe, and the lightest is a pale golden beige. The powders are versatile and last for hours and hours. I have very pale skin, brown hair with auburn highlights, and brown eyes with gold tones. These colors bring out the best in my complexion.
I have this in Baked Oatmeal.
Dry - The powder feels almost scratchy on my skin. It is very sheer going on and it requires multiple layers. The 2 lighter colors read almost the same on my skin, an ashy white. It will stay put once you get everything in place, but I'm just not impressed.
Wet - This stuff is made to be used wet. The colors are much bolder and stay put. Especially the deep brown - which makes a beautiful liner.
I'm personally not a big fan of using my powder shadows wet, so I probably won't purchase anything else in this particular line. Still, as a wet shadow - great stuff.
I bought this three years ago when I was in New York, my shade is in Baked Sweets. I like the colours and when used wet you can wear them clubbing without worrying they'd smudge or worn off. I'm not a big fan of their packaging though, it's not very easy to carry in your cosmetic bag cuz it takes a lot of space. I'm a bit surprised I'm still keeping this one after moving around tons. Oh well, as one of my old memories of New York, I'd always keep this one.
i bought baked oatmeal and i don't apply it wet, so that's probably why i didn't achieve the complete pigmentation potential, but i still liked it. i felt like the shades complimented my brown eyes to a T, and the lighter shades are one my favorite highlighters to use on the brow bone. i could easily use any old white shadow to highlight, but the baked off white oatmeal shades are unique and very pretty. it actually makes you think they really were made from Italian tiles, as it says on the packaging. i love the shimmer in the eyeshadow and how all three shadows go perfectly with one another. i even use the darker brown shade to fill in my eyebrows. lol. by far, one of the best drugstore eyeshadows.
I have blown lots of $$ on super expensive shadows...and physicians formula is right up there.. the colors take the guess work out of blending shades, and stay on!! a must..and easy on ur pocket!
Shade: Baked Oatmeal
I decided to buy this after reading the reviews and thought I might as well try it. I just tested it not too long ago and I think it was fairly easy to apply. I didnt expect much pigment but that's alright because I wanted a netrual look. Also i tried doing a wet application on my hand and I didnt see much of a difference except that the overall finish was smoother. If I apply the medium colour with a HINTTTTTT of the darkest eyeshadow... it shows up better... which is more of a taupe color. Also I didnt take off the eyeshadow I had in the morning and I realized it complemented really nicely with it. My morning look was a neutral look with MAC bare canvas as my base, MAC e/s in sushi flower in my crease and a hint of highlight below the brow... so when i put oatmeal over it, it looked pretty nice and it had still went on natural. I like this and I think I will be buying Baked Smokes because the other shades were pretty much the same!
I have this in "Baked Smores" it contains a pale grey shade, a pale peachy/pink, and a dark charcoal color...all matte.
This eyeshadow came in a package with the bronzer I purchased. The shade I have is baked sugar, which is like a light pink, a medium bronze, and a frosty white color. I liked the colors and they were very pretty in the package. I put the pink color on my lid, the bronze color on the crease and the white color on my brow bone. I love how they stayed on all day. No retouches at all. I like using them wet, but you have to blend pretty quickly or its hard to blend them. Overall, it was a good eyeshadow and I will consider repurchasing.
Thanks to everyone who wrote reviews about how to use these wet! I had been getting decent, work-appropriate pigment with using it dry, with a good mu brush. After reading here, I got out my Baked Oatmeal, put some comtact lense fluid in a container for brush-wetting...WOW! I did an all-over wash with the middle color, eyeliner and crease with the darkest, and highlighted with the lightest. It blended much better than I would have thought, even with no primer or anything. I set it with a brush of PF mineral make-up, and it toned down the sparkle a little bit--the lightest shade is very frosty.
This was about $7 at the local CVS.
It was a little tricky picking up pigment with a damp brush without getting color onto the other balls, but a swipe over everything with some tissue when finished cleaned everything up.
This is a great value for the money. I need to pick up the Spice and Sand ones, too.
