These shadows are a steal for the price. I just wish they were more readily available. I highly recommend!

Bought mine in the refillable pan and put them in a Z palette. Love all of the shades I have. Love the wide selection of matte shades, and the luimieres look great too. Great for the price! I will be buying more.

I agree with the reviewer below. I don't understand why these eye shadows don't get more love! They are amazing for the price. Being a professional line, they are generally found in theatrical supply stores, many of which are online as well (Frends, Naimies, CameraReadyCosmetics, Int'l Funshop, just to name a few...) I have a few of these and can't wait to get my hands on more. In general, the "Pressed Eye Shadows" are all matte in both neutrals and brights and come in the larger 36mm size. You can get them in either pots with the black matte rubberized coating or in refill pans and they sell 4, 8 and 12pan palettes. (The Lumiere line consists of the metallics and shimmers).
The texture of these are smooth, almost creamy and for mattes are not difficult to blend so they're easy to work with. They're also quite pigmented so these will last a long, long time.
At posting, I generally found the pricing to be around $8 for refill pans and $9 for pots though it may vary but that's within the US. (I tend to shop online. I'm sure these are more in Canada, I just haven't had the chance to find out in person. The closest theatrical store to me is a good hour's drive.)
Also, I found a great Australian site that has actual pictures, not just colour swatches of the shadows, which can be found here: http://www.scottysmakeup.com.au/Search.html

Also, you may not find every shade at every store. I had to shop around a little to get the ones I wanted, but they're worth the effort.

Brilliant color and loooong lasting

I have this in Raisin. I absolutely love this shadow and color. I use it as more of a transition color between my browbone and crease, but it also makes a lovely lid color. I'm always surprised to see so few reviews about Ben Nye products. The are superb quality at ridicilously cheap prices.

These shadows will last all day with a primer underneath. I have been out in crazy heat and humidity and this stuff will-not-budge! It blends very easily and you get a lot of product. I can't wait to try some more colors.
