LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! Can't say anything bad about this product, though before I go further - they are BASES. As eyeshadows, they crease horrifically whether you're oily or dry. You can use them as eyeshadows, but only if you apply them suuuper thinly over a decent primer. And even then they aren't that pigmented with such thin layers...and when you try to layer them more, they'll crease and sometimes smudge. But enough with the fail as eyeshadows - ha. As bases, these things are great - especially for the price. For $4, you get 4 eyeshadows that are tinted bases that you can line up with your powder eyeshadows. They are very sticky and make your powder eyeshadow so much more vibrant and longer lasting. I have five of these - which is amazing since I almost never re-purchase certain products because there's lots more to try out. They have a huuuuuge color selection which is a huge plus since these are so much better when they match up with your shadows.
My favorite is Va Va Bloom but I also own: Wild Orchids, Precious Metals, Black Magic, and Electric Pop.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for eyeshadow freaks (:
I have the precious metals quad and I can't get over how much I hate it. Even underneath UDPP, it starts to crease in less than 20 minutes, I don't even have oily eyelids!! The colors barely show up on me either, I just look like im wearing shimmer with the lighter colors, and shimmer with a light, almost dirty looking, tint with the darker shades. The only reason that I gave this product 2 stars is that it works okay as an inner corner highlighter (only the lighter shades), and the colors look pretty in the packaging, just not when you apply them, they are way too sheer seeing as you can't build them up because of their crazy creasing abilities.
Even with udpp underneath as primer using these cream b4 applying shadows creases after a couple hours. $8 i can buy somethibg else. this was one of many regrets.
got mine off ebay for $8 Australian including postage so it was definitely dirt cheap
the shades were ok...not my favourite ever but ok
too shimmery n glittery for me personally
[ps. got this in nude]
Way to Glittery and Sparkly, they need to make nude cream eyeshadows. I have 3 and I never use them.
I really don't like this product. Whenever I use this over a primer they crease like crazy. They suck as a primer as well. They don't help shadows last. I do use the first two shades as a base over UDPP and under someother shadows and they work to cancel out my veins, but their not worth the money. I'm just using it to use it.
The one I got is eternal summer and I really love the color combination to be honest. Though I found this product a waste of $8 and I wish I listened to my sister. I fell in love with the orange shadow and I thought it would be perfect for summer. Once I applied it, I ended up applying three layers to get it to a bright fun orange but it didn't gave me anything. I even applied a powder eye shadow to set it and to help the orange stand out more. It helped...a little and next thing I found out it kept creasing. like BIG TIME!
Color combo - cute but not worth the $8 and maybe it works better for light skinned color people.
I bought this one in 711 Black Magic / Magie noire. Pigment is great if I don't blend. When I am trying to blend, they are really really really difficult to work with. It does not give the smooth creamy shimmer color as other cream eyeshadow does. They crease on my lid very quick. Even with primer and pressed color shadow, they crease within half an hour after I applied. I cannot find anything good about it except the package is not bad. It is expensive and it's a completely waste of money. Absolutely the worst eyeshadow I have ever tried so far! No way I am wasting money on this again.
I had this in Precious Metals, and I've had this quad for at least a couple of years. I found it stashed at the bottom of my eyeshadow palettes (that should have been enough of a warning) and decided to try them out for a week. I just couldn't get them to work. The colors are beautiful, and they really do make powder shadows looks fantastic (the burgundy shade did wonderous things to that interesting eyelid color in the WnW Petal Pusher palette), but they crease like crazy. I tried them without primer and worn alone, with primer, with primer and with powder shadow packed on top. Nothing could keep these from creasing, even though I never put them in my crease. They're just too creamy. I tried applying with a lighter hand, but then I was just left with patches of glitter and the powder that I tried to put on top would clump up. Not attractive. I really wouldn't recommend these to anyone, they come in gorgeous colors but it's not worth it if they're going to crease up after half an hour.
I absolutely love the rich feel and gorgeous finish of all these shadows. Each one I own applies and blends like a dream and has a simply beautiful luminous finish that truly does light up one's eyes. As for the shades, the quads I own (as with the Revlon Colorstay, some were bought in India and others in US:)
-Moonlit Jewels: I love this one on my skintone. It has a warm toned coppery brown, a light golden brown, a slightly aqua-toned green and a royal blue. All four are just divine on Indian skin, truly beautiful.
-Not Just Nudes: Very pretty for such basic neutral shades. It has a dark shimmery brown, a semi-matte medium brown, a shimmery golden brown (a bit lighter than Moonlit Jewels') and a semi matte cream. Medium and darker skins may make the cream a bit too light but the other shades are very pretty and versatile.
-Precious Metals: Another nice neutral quad with a metallic twist, a bit edgier than Not Just Nudes. Has a silver, a gold, a copper and a rose-gold that should work on any skin tone. Very versatile and pretty, I love the luminous glowy look these have.
-Va Va Va Bloom: Pretty two-shade plum, mauve and peach quad, goes fairly well with my skin tone but runs a bit cool toned. Would be lovely on anyone with cool undertones.
-Endless Summer: Purchased in US, was a new (non-LE IIRC) quad for summer 2011, has a baby blue, sage green, coral and canary shade. I love the sage color, the rest I can take or leave. Coral is quite bright & tricky to pull off, and the blue & canary are a bit light for me. Still great shadow quality.
Just a warning/reminder though: Remember cream shadows (of any brand) don't have the staying power of powder. Primer & occasional touch-ups will be necessary, especially if you have a long day.
