I have the Black one. It gives fallout, and it's bit very pigmented. The packaging is okay. I like that the lid is see through, so you Can see the Color. It's not a great Black eyeshadow.

I bought this today in the shade "621 Sparkling Gold". It was an impulse purchase because it was 15% off in this department store and didn't really think much of it. But when I swatched this, I was amazed, this has really nice pigmentation and texture. I have been looking high and low for a dupe of MAC Patina-eyeshadow, which is very popular shade, a neutral taupe with a hint of gold. And I think that this eyeshadow is very similar to Patina! I personally don't own Patina, but my friend does so I have seen it in person. Sparkling Gold lacks the undertones of green and pink, which are found in Patina, but the similarity is very close. Sparkling Gold is also maybe a touch darker. I googled this shade and it seems that this shade isn't sold in America, ( I live in Europe) but I think you can order this from Amazon. So if you are looking for a dupe for MAC Patina, this is for you :)

I bought this in 'luminous green'. It was a dirt cheap impulse buy, the kind I inevitably regret, and alas, this is no exception.
In the pan, a gorgeous, bold, green with gold flecks but the pigment is useless and the colour doesn't translate well on lids. Far too translucent, even with primer and a neutralising white base under it. You can layer and layer til you're blue in the face but there's just not enough pigment in it to do the job. Rubbish.
1 lippie for the pan colour being gorgeous. 1 more for the packaging being ok and the low price.
Needless to say, I won't rebuy. I'll stick to MAC pots.

I have this in beige nude, its not exactly ''nude'', more like a taupe shade with some shimmer. Makes for a nice everyday/work and school appropriate colour. I apply a wash of it over my lids and some mascara and I'm good to go! Quite pigmented and not chalky at all. I apply a primer underneath because they will fade/crease with my oily skin.

I'm pretty impressed with this shadow. I have this in '850 Smoky Black' which is just a matte black. This is pretty pigmented and I use this mostly as a liner with a damp angled liner brush, to set my pencil liner sometimes and as a defining shadow on my outer v with other shadows to create that smoky eye effect. You do get a fair bit of fallout from these shadows which can be a pain considering the shadow is black, but that's nothing a cotton pad with makeup remover can fix. It was a bit pricey since drugstore makeup in NZ is pricey in general, but overall it is a good product to try out. Was worth my money. :)
