I bought this and fell in love- I had so many compliments! I have noticed it is flattering on different eye/skin colors. My sister loved this color so much on me- I got one for her and she loved how it looked! (i have blue/green eyes, she has brown). It changes according to the wearer which I love! I am also a huge fan of eyeshadows that you can layer to build intensity! I would definitely recommend this eyeshadow color!

I was looking for a more neutral color to wear as a base, as I wear other glimmers as an accent in the crease. I had bought a kit with a color called "Shimmer" that I absolutely loved but knew when that ran out, I would lose my neutral shimmer... so I started on the hunt for a replacement. I picked this one up at my local Bare Minerals store, after looking through the samples. This color was actually suggested and I am glad it was... love it! I may start going with this color as my base, and continuing to use 'devotion' as my accent color - looks great.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous - a sparkly taupe colour that blends well with other colours such as coffee bean/ tiger's eye and many others. No irritation and I am a contact lense wearer. Beautiful.

Absolutely in love with this eye shadow. I have zillions of shadows, but this is my personal favorite. I get compliments on my makeup each time I wear this!

Pretty much the prettiest eye shadow I have ever used! Stays on all day and I always get compliments when I wear it. I love the glitter! Will buy again and again!

I have the fairest skin ever, freckles, blue eyes, and this is sooooo pretty!!!
I like to use it wet on my eyelid and dry as shimmer.
If used wet it lasts all day while giving you a foiled look.

The color is a mix of taupe and sand with lots of glimmer.

Goes well together with Queen Philly, Moss and Queen Tiffany.

I adore this shadow. Truly, it is such a lovely thing.

I got this with a set, and didn't think too much about it, especially since I figured it would be a huge pain to use.

Then I tried it - a shimmery, icy taupe - perfect for the whole lid or just highlighting the brow - goes on like a dream and stays put (however, I always use primer, under all shadows). Looks like I may never run out, given the fact that I hardly use anything when applying this. This also works when applied with a wet brush - it's pretty major bling.

I especially love this as a brow highlighter, with Long Island Iced Tea (from the Candy Cocktails set) on the whole lid and Kir Royale (also from the Candy Cocktails set) as a soft liner.

A really nice eyeshadow. Lots of shimmer yet it can be worn in a soft look. Celestine is like an icy taupe. applied dry gives a softer nautral shine look. worn wet gives a more dramatic foiled look. I will not repurchase because there's just SO much in the jar I highly doubt I will be runnning out any time soon.

BE really makes some of the most beautiful eyeshadows. This is a very light cool taupe, and its shimmery in that way where it looks wet, not glittery. Using this wet is my favorite way.

Celestine shows up as a cool-toned brown taupe that gives a strong pop of silver glimmer when the light hits it. The pigmentation is light (and the shimmer strong) -- normally that's a combination I'm weary of but with this shadow it works: the light pigmentation tames the strong shimmer, and makes this a workable daytime look that can still be jazzed up for evening.


I should emphasize that for me application was key and that a little product goes a long way. The first time I tried it I used the amount of product that I normally would for a lot of my lighter and more matte BE shadows. This was a mistake. My eyelids looked like garish disco balls (to say nothing of the fallout I created). Next time, I used a very small amount of product on a MAC 217 with a light hand. World of difference.


As for staying power I was impressed -- some fallout during application seems unavoidable but over UDPP my lids still looked great 7 hours later.


This leans cool so if cool tones don't play well with your eyes I'd probably avoid it. Also, while the color does show up decently on me I should note I have fair skin.
