This is a trio of highly pigmented greens, each very different in tone from the other. . I need a cool frosty green in my makeup kit, and that is the color recommended for "browbone" in this trio of greens. It is quite frosty & silvery and buffs to a high shine. I am most likely to use this on my eyelid. . The middle color, recommended for "crease", is a true green, a nice leafy green, a bit on the bright side. Again highly pigmented and with a good bit of cool shimmer. . The third color, recommended for "eyelid", is a surprisingly matte yellow-green with a good bit of gold shimmer. I have a fair number of shimmery yellow-greens in my makeup collection - one going back to the mid-1960s, even. This color just does not cut it. The base is matte, and the color is more than a tad dull, so that it looks a bit sickly, even for a yellow-green. The gold shimmer doesn't show up on my lid as much as it does in the pan. I'd seen it on the web in various reviews and it looked better in those photos than it does on me. . I love strange colors and strange color combinations. But the combo of frosted pale cool green on the brow, intense true green in the crease, and matte dull yellow-green on the lid does not work particularly well, in my opinion. However, each of the colors delivers great color payoff, and i think combined in pairs, or individually with other colors not in this trio, they will look much better than used as trio in the suggested locations. . I considered returning this, but hey, it was on sale and only cost $1.20, so i'll keep it. . EDIT: I've been experimenting with this shadow trio, and i find that these shadows irritate my eyes painfully, which is rare these days - so i knocked my rating down a notch.
