I am so impressed with how long this one compact has lasted me & the quality is still the same as when I bought it fresh. I mean this thing is OLD now. There is a dip along all the shades but I am nowhere near hitting the bottom of this. Ive used it as eyeshadow as well as all over highlighting. It adds a beautiful glow to my makeup after I am done setting it with powder. Ive used it during the daytime because it isnt overkill shimmer. Just adds a beautiful glow.
