I bought the shadow duo in 965 which is a pretty aqua blue on one side and a pearly shimmery taupe brown on the other. I love both of the shades and when I originally purchased this it was for the aqua shade. I have had this for about 7 years which is probably a big no no if you ask any expert how long it is okay to keep eyeshadow, but this still applies like a dream and has not changed in texture at all since the day I bought it. I love the aqua but hardly ever find myself using it, instead I am always reaching for it to use the taupe shade. It is so beautiful, somewhat similar to MAC Patina, but different. I used this almost everyday when I first bought it and I still have plenty of the taupe shade. The aqua side doesn't even have much of a dent in it even though I have definitely used it tons throughout the years. For $14 I think this is money very well spent. I just wish I had the option to buy a back up.

I am not impressed at all. The price is too high when you get drugstore quality. I have had a grey and nude shades of this eye shadow. The colors are pretty low in pigment and not very smooth at all. This is drugstore quality. I do not wish to bash the whole brand tho...I like Biotherm eye pencils and their powder blush but skip the eye shadow.

#410 Play On is an absolutely beautiful and unique velvet coral pink eyeshadow. there is no shine or shimmer. It is very bright in the pan but goes on as a velvety smooth pinky-peach. I have very pale skin and this color does not leave me looking like I have just been on a crying binge like so many pinks do. No, this color brightens up my eyelid in a gorgeous, natural way and makes my turquoise contact lenses 'pop'. I use the little sponge thingy it comes with it pat on my lips sometimes and then add clear lipgloss for a great natural look there as well. I mix a little swipe in with my mark powder blushes - this color is versatile as all get-out!
It's $18 Cdn. at Shoppers Drug Mart and worth every penny. I'll buy this until they take it off the market! Should add the colour can be layered on for a deeper, more intense colour. There's testers so you can try before you buy. Always a good deal.

I wanted to try these badly so I swapped for one:#420 which is described by the first reviewer very well.But I'm not happy with it as much as she does.I don't like the texture much.First it's a hard work to blend the shadow.It doesn't go smooth as I want and the color barely shows up on me.It's not because of my coloring though!Similar colors from other brands show up on me but this one looks pretty boring.The shimmer is only on the surface,you can't get any on your lids which is weird.I think it's not pigmented enough to satisfy my liking.So I'm glad that I won't be spending $$$(which is already high for these cheap-looking shadows)for more shades.

The colours in this range are really cute and the packaging is nice and so when buying my Biotherm foundation I purchased 3 (410, 320, 100). There are all fairly 'out there' colours, lime green, neon pink, pale pink. I wanted to try out some interesting looks/mixing etc. It didn't work, apart from the fact that the brush given is worse than normal e/s brushes in the pot, even with a good brush this product was hard to mix and blend. It went on really patchy. I won't repurchase and now need to think of ways to use these up!

I have to say I think I found an eyeshadow that I'm in-love with. While at Macy's I noticed a lady with beautiful makeup at the Biotherm counter. I asked her if she was wearing Biotherm and she pointed out the colors she was wearing, She showed me four colors that were all nice but since I had similar colors in other brands I only bought 2. I have #420 which is a warm/brick/ruddish/neutral w/ a slight shimmer to it and #715 which is a charcoal/black color w/ slight shimmer as well. I must say that these eyeshadows go on VELVET smooth, they blend effortlessly!!! I like them as much as Stila or Mac. The only problems are they have more of your everyday basic colors, even the purples and blues are muted. Also the packaging is a little cheesy for a 14.00 e/s. This eyeshadow IMO is worth trying out, at least one or two colors anyway. I will definitly be adding to my collection!!! Also I have oily skin and I've been wearing it now for 8 hours and no creasing!
