I bought 4 of them (Teak, Sungold, Vanilla and Sky Blue) and was really excited about them. Well I was really disappointed. It was too drying on my lids, too sheer to have any color and it dried up my eyelids considerably even though I normally have oily lids. I didn't like them at all. For $14 a piece, I am hugely dismayed. Chanel, Dior, Lancome and Shiseido eyeshadows are much better.
like the single eyeshadows because I can pick and choose which colors I want. They are only 10 buck where I am and Im a do it yourself palette girl and thankfully with these dont have to do the bake out freeze out thing. Find these comparable to MAC in texture dont know why everyone seems to knock this brand. Anyway the dark colors are great to use as eyeliner, they go on smooth, I didnt even have to wet my liner brush. Also prefer matte shades anyway since most shiny eye makeup looks gross on me anyway .
Giving it a four because would like to try a few other brands before deciding if this is the best. A silky well pigmented shadow that goes on smooth as good as Mac. Like the single eyeshadows because I can pick and choose my own palette. I may be in the minority here but I hate most frosted e/s and thankfully EA didnt jump on the everything must be frosted bandwagon. (Do we all have PT jobs as Las Vegas showgirls on the side?). Have Teak a wonderful basic brown- also great as a eyeliner and a pale pink similiar to Macs yogurt I like EA better because there less e/s "dust" and are well milled only gripe is the pan size is v. small but but at least not as expensive as say BB at $18 a pop either. Ten dollars a pop not dirt cheap but Ive seen e/s that were more $$$
I have vanilla. It's a nice highlight/all over color, in a nice pale tone (matches my skin) but it has only average blendability and consistancy. I can buy cheaper.
I have 6 of these shadows. They are very sheer and have no staying power at all. I also have trouble blending them. What little color that actually remains on my eye lid is stuck in the crease. I am not impressed.
I have two eyeshadow palettes, one with brown, earthy tones, the other with feminine pink tones, and both are very nice. Additionally, they smell very fresh and natural, which is really nice and assured me of their quality.
These eye shadows are OK. They are supposed to be triple milled. I'm a lll-mmm and have sherbert which is a peachy colour and it does not show up at all on my lids.
Very sheer, overpriced shadows that are surprisingly bad considering they come from one of the most famous names in cosmetics. I had to practically dig in an applicator to get anything onto my lids; with a brush, almost nothing happened. The matte shades offer a good theoretical alternative to the shimmer, shimmer, shimmer so prevalent now, but EA needs to give these guys more pigment.
I have one of these in a beautiful turquoise, it could be plum, yellow or even black and I wouldn't notice. If you like sheer colors they might work for you, but I never managed to make my eyes look anything but awful with this one. Applied with a brush you don't even notice you put it on, and applied with a sponge or even a wet sponge it just looks awful, yuck.
I got several EA eyeshadows as part of a GWP and I was very unimpressed. The texture of the shadows was very silky, almost creamy (hence the rating of 2 lippies) but they refused to show up on my lids. Keep in mind that I am white as a ghost and have no problem with even notoriously unpigmented e/s showing up on me (i.e. L'Oreal Wear Infinite). I'm glad I didn't spend any money on these because they ended up in the trash.
