I have a love affair with eyeshadows and I keep coming back to these! They are well worth it and you can change out the colors as you like. Wonderful product!

These eyeshadoes are very good. Great colour range and inexpensive. The only downside is some of the light colours are very shiny and you do have to buy a case but like a previous reviewer wrote, they don't cost much. Less expensive than MAC and Bobbie Brown for almost the same results.

I have two full 8 shadow pallets of thesse and can do alot of differnt looks with them.They blend very well and have good staying power.The only real negitive is that you would pretty much have to buy a case for it because it just comes in a very thin plastic case.But the pallets are pretty cheap and come in 2,4 or 8 shadow spaces. All in all a very good product.

I think these are the best inexpensive eyeshadows around. The colour line is similar to Urban Decay (very trendy) and the pigmentation is very good.

These are absolutely fabulous.
I am a bit of a make up junkie. I spend way too much on it. These shadows are the best shadows I have come across, and at $5 each they are a bargain to say the least.

I have had nothing but success with mark. shadows. (I'm also terminally old-school and still use foam eye shadow applicators for the best result.) Recently, I was craving the UD Naked palette and couldn't find one anywhere they were sold out. I looked through my current stash of mark. shadows, and then browsed the catalog in order to put together my own palette with a similar theme. I'm not saying mine is an exact dupe, but damn it's close and it totally satisfied my craving. These retail $6CAD ea., which is a steal compared to MAC.

My friend is a Mark rep, so I decided it was time to try the products she sells.
I started out with the neutrals because that is what I use everyday and used them for a long time before actually only one was used up and I had to order another one. At $5 each it's not a bad price I think.
Especially when paired with Urban Decays eyeshadow primer (which I only recently started doing), I feel these eyeshadows add some great color to the eyes. Yes you will have to apply a couple times, but I still think they are pretty worth it especially considering the price is pretty good

These are really great in pretty much all aspects:
Price for the amount: the pans are pretty generously sized for the price; it'll be ages before I use up even the neutral colors I use often (3-4 times a week).
Packaging: there are palettes you can buy to customize, and I have a couple, but I've been using an eyeshadow pan right in the little disposable plastic container it comes in with no problems. The best is that I don't feel bad about ignoring the colors I hate, because I just don't buy those!
Colors: there's a pretty good selection that mark. adds to occasionally. There's matte, shimmer, and "shimmerier" (there's no hard core glitter, which is fine, I would use those very sparingly and not often, if ever). There are basic colors and fun colors, so you can play around.
Wear: these stay on! I never have to worry about the color fading mysteriously off my skin, or settling into a barely-there version of the color I applied, etc. I don't use a primer and don't want to bother with one, so that's a big plus for me.

Ok so I have the Mega Palette to place all my stuff in.
- The blushes are amazing except they are all shimmery so if you are a matte blush person stay away from mark.
- the shadows in general are all amazing! I love them, great pigmentation AWESOME staying power and also they are a great size and will last forever.
-All the customizable palettes are absolutely gorgeous, in fact * true story*!
My mom saw my MAC 15 pro pan palette and said it was UGLY and looked cheap =( Then when she saw my first mark. palette holder ( this was awhile back when I barely beacame a rep and they gave me a medium sized one) she said that if they made one larger than that I should get it because the MAC one is ugly. So just about a week ago I ordered the large custom palette and it is prettier than my mac palette ( even though of course the MAC shadows are much better because of the color selection ) But anyway the mark custom palette is prettier and sleeker than the mac 15 pro pan palette. mark. shadows are really good, if you are a MAC addict you will love them trust me I did!

A great shadow for the price! They're a nice size, too, so they'll last forever. There isn't the greatest selection of colours available, but I haven't run into one yet I really didn't like. Sure, like all brands, some colours are better than others, but overall, I've been continually impressed, especially with the neutral shades (Nomadic, Fairydust and Magic are my favourites of those that I own). I love that a lot of the available colours are matte/satin textures since those are harder to find in cheaper brands, and I don't own all that many mattes to begin with. They wear well on me even without a base (no creasing), though like most shadows, the colours are a lot more vibrant with one.
My favourite thing about these shadows, though, it that they're customizable. I love that you can put blushes and eyeshadows in one palette, to create a complete look. I really like the actual palettes, too (though I could do without the brushes/brush compartment) they're quite sleek, and I like that you can actually see the colours without opening them. When you own a bazillion shadows it's nice to not have to open every palette to find what you're looking for. Definitely recommend! Mark continually impresses me with their quality products, and is quickly becoming one my favourite brands.

I love these shadows. With the economy and all, these are a very affordable way to get tons of variety for very little money. I love the fact that they come in the custom cases that vary by size (I have the largest and the smallest), so you can switch these according to season, outfit, or mood. You can also pair these with mark's bronzers/ blushes.
You can apply these dry or wet, for that extra pop of color. The colors also blend very easily. I have very oily lids and, when applied with care (primer, base, etc), these last all day without creasing. I have a few and have ordered some more.
Apple -- Not my favorite color of the lot because it is quite sheer, but is a very pretty pink and great for a natural summer/ spring look; better when applied wet
Corset-- Really nice dark gray; great for a daytime smokey eye look (not as dramatic as black)
Espresso -- Matte dark brown; very subtle on my skin
Retro Peacock -- My favorite of the bunch; dark teal with some shimmer
Fairy Dust -- Very shimmery light brown; great for highlighting; amazing when applied wet
**EDIT** I've found that not all the i-mark shadows are great quality. Some are actually quite chalky and difficult to work with. I still think these are a great buy though, and sooo worth the price.

very nice shadows for the price. i like that you can customize your own pallets.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I was very hopeful for these shadows and bought a whole bunch of them! I only fell in love with the light colors that I would use as all over eye or highlight. The color pay off is sheer at best. they didnt fade but you really had to give 2-3 applications to make it sick. Maybe a good primer would change this. The actually colors I feel arent worth it b/c they are too sheer! Stick with the neutrals!

Let me begin by saying that I am not an eyeshadow connoisseur, but I love to play. I own all sorts of brands and lines and colors of eyeshadow and I like most of them. I rarely dress to the nines, but I have to look pulled-together daily at work. For my everyday purposes, I-mark custom pick eyeshadows are absolutely terrific.
These shadows apply sheerly for the most part, which works for me. You can build color if you desire, which I usually don't. The colors are cute and mixable, and for the price ($4 per shadow!) I feel just fine playing with them and mixing things up to my heart's content. I do like the handy magnetized compacts because I don't like messing around with the stupid plastic clamshell thingies. I would like better packaging for individual shadows, but I suppose that would drive up the cost...which would drive down my fun.
The bottom line for me is that these shadows let me do what I need to do with my eyes on a daily basis, which is look professional. They cost little enough that I can have lots of different colors, which makes me happy. If I were the going-out-and-dancing-all-night type, I don't know if these would be vivid enough for that scene...though I've never tried them wet. And I probably wouldn't choose these shadows to wear to a white-tie affair, either (anyone want to invite me to one? anyone?)--I'd use my Kevyn Aucoin for that. But as things stand in my life at this time... ;)
In summary, these are cute and cheap. For most of us, they'll work just fine. If you're a high-profile professional makeup artist or Michelle Obama on your way to an international soiree, these probably aren't what you'll reach for first. But I love them, and I have probably about 10+ different colors.

I have 12 colors:
I honestly, don't like this product even for the price. the lighter colors are very very chalky and have poor pigmentation the darker colors are a lot better, less chalky, more pigmented.
I would not recommend this product. Try NYX eyeshadows instead. they're very affordable and has good pigmentation.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I have the colors:
-Fairy Dust: pinkish taupe color with gold and silver glitter. silky texture. good color pay off.
-Nomadic:creamy gold with gold glitter. chalky texture. bad color pay off. might work as an highlighter.
-Java:medium brown with red/pink and white glitter. silky texture. good color pay off.
-Tiki: dark red chocolate with red/pink and white glitter. silky texture. good color pay off.
-Biscotti: light gold with gold and white glitter. chalky texture. bad color pay off. ok as an highlighter.
-Vintage Khaki: dark olive green with gold glitter. silky texture. good color pay off.
The shadows are good for the price. All the shadows have glitter in them. Though, I notice that the more lighter the color the worse the texture and color pay off.

I like these a lot. I like to wear makeup that's not obvious (I usually apply very natural makeup) and these work well with that look. For something more dramatic though, I find that they're kind of bland due to how sheer and light the colors are. I really like the packaging, it's awesome how you can switch out makeup in a case instead of throwing out the whole thing (that way there isn't so much plastic going to waste).

I bought this in lovestruck and living doll. I tried each of them once, and I hated both of them. I loved the color of each of them in the package, but once I tried them they were hideous on me. But the thing I was most dissapointed with was the consistency of the shadows when I was applying them. To me it seemed like really old chalk that you had to scrape onto your face, I did not like the consistency or application at all.

These are only $4 plus tax from a mark.avon rep. They are very affordable. Packaging is nothing more than a plastic clamshell. The eyeshadows are ment to fit into a a special plastic palette with a magnetic strip. This allows you to change the colors in and out easily. The palettes range from $4 to $8 and can fit 2 to 8 shadows into them depending on your choices and combinations.
The shadows them selves range from very pigmented to fairly sheer, some may even border on chalky. They can be applied dry, or wet for more intense color. They blend easliy and last about 5-6 hours on me with out any primer. I don't have a problem with creasing but I'm sure a good shadow primer would boost the color intensity and wear of these shadows. I've used them over the mark i-glimmer cream shadows and this works great for making the colors of the i-mark shadows PoP!
I have a few colors, so I'll describe them for you:
Glitteratti: Shimmery silver
Tart: Shimmery lavender
Fairy Dust: Pinky-beige shimmer
Tiki: Medium bronze shimmer
Corset: Shimmery deep gun metal gray
Retro Peacock: Deep dark teal with minimal shimmer
Plum Velvet: Plum with red tones, also minimal shimmer
Over all, these shadows are a good buy and a fun product. They are affordable, and easy to use. I recomend them :)

I bought the kit and two eyeshadows from this line and I am thrilled! I bought two neutral shadows, Fairy Dust and Tiki.
Fairy Dust is a cool light shimmering pinky nude and it is sheer, but provides enough coverage to actually show up. It gives you the right about of shimmer without looking too gaudy. It is as close to a perfect nude that I have found since they discontinued my fave Lola's Skin Candy, although this one is more pink. It is perfect for all over the lid as well as highlighter - very versatile.
Tiki is a warm shimmery medium brown that looks dark in the pallette but comes out neutral and gorgeous against my eye color. I use this as a lid color, probably a bit too light for a dramatic crease however. Not too much shimmer as well. Great for day wear and night wear.
These are downright cheap, they last, they look great, and the packaging is brilliant. There are magnets on the back of the shadows that stick in the kit and you have enough room for two. I don't 100% love the brushes that come with it, but I never do - so buy your own. I didn't notice any creasing at all either. It is hard to tell the colors online so I research mine by reading reviews here - trust me, they look completely different on the web page. I will definitely be purchasing more of these.
