From reading the reviews, it looks like this product has been discontinued. I knew they stopped selling it in Nordstrom but figured you could still buy it in Calvin Klein or elsewhere. Anyway, I have this in Driftwood which is a perfect bronzy/taupy brown. I love the texture and sheerness of it and it stays all day. It seems to last a very long time so I'll be dissapointed when I run out if I can't replace it.

I bought an eye palette in Khaki, and it stays on for a really long time and doesn't start melting into the crease of my eyelid. I think it works really well and I'm definately going to buy it again after the one I have runs out

I got a pallete of 5 brown/neutral shades of this for Christmas and was very impressed with the texture. It glides on smoothly and creases much less than other eyeshadows. It also came with a good quality brush which was a big plus.

I have the quad, with Bittersweet (dark brown), Aubergine (dark purple), Almondine (taupey beige), Woodrose (pinker version of Almondine). This is the worst e/s ever, esplly for a high-end one I bought through Sephora. All the colors apply muddy (with grey undertones) and are boring. The e/s aren't very pigmented; are hard to blend; and fade super fast. I'm going to give this away.

I have Calvin Klein eye shadow in Tourmaline, kind of a neutral faintly iridescent old rose color. It looks very pretty in the compact. Sadly, I have had lousy results with this shadow. It seems to have poor pigmentation and has a harsh, dry drag across my lid during application. Disappointing.

I've been using Calvin Klein eyeshadows for a little over a year and I am very happy with the ones I've tried: Shell, Pecan, Taupe, Almondine. They stay on all day, don't crease, (unless I have concealer on my 'lids), and the colors don't change through the day. I really like the fact that there are plenty of neutral shades; Lots of beiges & browns. The only real downside is that I don't like not having a little space in the box for the applicator but I guess CK assumes we all use expensive eyeshadow brushes! I'll keep using these unless I find something I like even better. NOTE: I've heard that CK has discontinued these items but they are still available on ebay.

I like Calvin Klein stuff cos of the wearable colours, high quality formulations and classy packaging. The eyeshadows are a bit of a disappointment in in the line- OK but don't live up to the rest of it. I find the shadows a bit wishy washy with slightly dull colours and poorly pigmented shadows. I can say that they don't crease badly on me though- so thats an upside. D.xx

I think these eye shadows are terrible. I bought Almondine, and it creased literally minutes after I first applied it. The eye shadow just wouldn't stay on my eyelids! The packaging is cheap and nasty too. Waste of money!! Gimme YSL shadows anyday.

I think CK e/s are very underrated. These are my favourites in line with Stila and MAC. I own Woodviolet (almost matte brownish blackberry shade), Taupe (a really neutral, slightly shimmery gray/beige), Jadeite (shimmery jade), Bluestone (almost matte blueish gray), I owned but swapped away Woodrose (almost matte light mauvish pink-beige, didn't show up on my PPP skin, nice base shade) and also the new summer duo in Mist/Pacific (light shimmery silver/white and a shimmery blue-greenish mermaid shade). I find that these have good staying power, the shimmer is subtle, nothing like Stila's or MAC's frosty e/s, thus they will also look good on mature skin. I like the plexi-plastic-packaging- it's slim and stylish. If you compare the amounts of product you get, you'll find that Stila is actually cheaper than CK, yet I love them because with Stila you can hardly find anything with moderate shimmer, it's either matte or frosty. The shade selection is rather limited, but they do have some nice stuff (the taupe e/s is the best I could find- truly neutral!).
UPDATE: I own a few more CK e/s now- I find that they vary in quality a lot, there are those great in consistency (listed above) and then some others that are not as silky. Also I didn't notice before because I always use e/s base: you HAVE to use a base to make these show up properly, but then they stay on the whole day without creasing.

it came in a great clear lucite container, so i just couldn't resist. but it wasn't pigmented enough for me. it ended up being just a wash. i couldn't build it up. i may try it again sometime, when my preferences get more subtle.

I am really happy with this product. I bought the 4-color holiday palette which includes bittersweet, almondine, aubergine, and woodrose and the colors are both subtle and bold all in one compact which means that I can go from an office-friendly eye to a sexier evening eye without lugging around extra shadows in my bag. These shadows have a nice satiny luxurious feel and I don't notice any creasing. This is a definite thumbs up!

The are my favorite eyeshadows. They are sheer, but that is the look I like. I have not had a problem with them staying at all. I have about 8 different colors and they are all winners.

I enjoy Calvin Klein products. I thought the eyeshadow had pretty good staying powder, without much creasing.

Calvin Klein's cosmetic line is like his clothes - classic, modern, and this packaging is impeccable. I do like to experiment with my eyeshadows and I found his eyeshadow line (in colors) kind of boring. These are quality shadows, though, long wearing, no creasing (altough I did see a slight color change as the day wore on with some). I usually will wear these shadows to my office and save my more "bolder" eyeshadows for going out! I bought Henna (a beautiful warm brown/orange - very wearable!), Taupe (too light for me), Espresso (great dark brown - I use this for lining my eyes for a smokey look!) and Khaki (another great basic).

I got these colors in Taupe and Woodviolet, two favorites in this line and was sorely disappointed. Found the colors very nice but they faded very quickly. Did not last even with a primer. Would not purchase these again.
UPDATE this line has since been discontinued.
