Got this on sale for $5 @ Sephora since I needed something to qualify for free shipping. I must say, it was the best $5 spent. I use it almost everyday, it gives me the best neutral look and it's so easy to carry around. I have already made a huge dip on both sides and will be very sad if I ever run out.

I don't know if this is still $5 at Sephora, but that's why I got it. I love golds/bronzes for eyes so this is my everyday eyeshadow. The pigmentation is pretty good in comparison to other Smashbox eyeshadows that I've tried. I really like the shimmer in this. There is minimal fall-out. My skin is oily so I have to use primer anyway, but this stuff will last. I think it looks good on my medium skintone (I'm Asian...NC38), but I have some friends that are tanner than I am and it just looked washed out on them.

When I saw this for $5 I was shocked, I had to get it. Its a beautiful gold color and the dark color is a good everyday brown. This is perfect duo, its a generous size. I dont think its cheap, it lasted all day on me without a primer. I love sephora deals.

This eye shadow duo is mediocre at best. It gives you a basic neutral eye, except that the shades (particularly the darker one) are too bronzed for my liking (hence my two lippie rating instead of three). This was a disappointment considering that the picture on Sephora.com showed the lighter shade to be a dusty pink with a hint of peach and the darker shade to be a medium brown that I imagined would apply more or less as a light brown or taupe shade.


This duo is being sold online only by Sephora for $5. I'm not sure why its price is so cheap, but I can guess. Anyway, I don't think this is even worth $5 and I will be returning it. Five dollars is five dollars, right? =)

I have to agree with sugarlumples-- this duo is terrific! I also picked it up for $5 at Sephora.com. I love how the peachy color brightens (or at least appears to brighten) my blue eyes.

This is a great value. The duo is $5 at Sephora. It is a great way to try out Smashbox eyeshadow and not break the bank. The colors in this set are neutral and highly pigmented with a bit of shimmer. They go well with my cool fair skintone, but would definitely work with many other skintones. This shadow goes on smoothly and resists creasing throughout the day. The color in this set is described on Sephora's site as: Glow/Getter (peach champagne shimmer/ dark warm brown sheen)

I cannot recommend this eye shadow enough, especially at the price it is!
