I'm wondering if the reviewer below got a different product to me or perhaps they just don't mind the things that I hated about this eyeshadow! The colour in itself is lovely. That's all I can say. However, it is NOT infused with gold shimmer. It's more of a silver shimmer. The texture is difficult to work with and the fall-out is HORRENDOUS! This stuff leaves little flecks of shimmer everywhere. I had it on my forehead, my chin and seriously bad all over my cheeks. The fall-out was a lot worse than, say, an Urban Decay glitter eyeshadow because the flecks were a lot smaller and just would not budge. This is the ONLY eyeshadow I've ever had where I gave up after applying it and removed it. I then started all over again with one of my faithful Urban Decay (non-glittery!) shadows. And then I threw this in the bin in anger. No point returning it for me, the travel costs to get where I bought it from would defy the whole point and eBay now have a policy of not allowing used cosmetics to be sold. So in the trash it went. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I would never touch it again. This was my first Guerlain eyeshadow and it will definitely be my last. I was unfortunately seduced by the tester shadow in Debenhams, and it did indeed look great on the back of my hand. The shop assistant then convinced me to purchase and I really wish I'd ignored her because I was about to leave it, owing to the huge price tag, and go for an Urban Decay or Mac shadow but ended up getting talked into it. Never again! If you don't mind fall-out and you're not too bothered about texture - this wasn't the best to blend and didn't have the velvety, buttery texture of my Urban Decay and Mac shadows - then this is probably a very pretty colour for warm-toned brunettes like myself. But I don't want to look like a disco ball. I was extremely disappointed in this shadow. The two lippies I'm giving are for the colour alone and the quality of the packaging and the lovely little applicator you get with it - which I have kept!

This color is gorgeous! A peach infused with golden shimmer. It is what I thought that MAC Pigment in Melon would look like (unfortunately it's just golden on me). Usually peach eyeshadows are either too light that don't show up either too golden. This is a color which has depth. Although the golden shimmer may look too much, the actual color is visible, it doesn't look like gold. It is very pigmented and the texture is as soft as butter. It looks amazing with Chanel Reflex and In Love blushes and a peach lipstick for a monochromatic effect on the face, or with black eyeliner. I also believe that it will look great in the summer with tan and bronze colors. Somewhat expensive but given the quantity you get and how pigmented it is, it's difficult to run out.
