I can not rave about these sparkle shadows enough. These things are seriously great. I own 6 colors (not sure of all of their names): Smokey topaz, a bronze color, amethyst, sapphire, a silver, and opal. They are freaking amazing! I wear them everyday. They are super pigmented and give you just the right amount of shimmer. I pat it all over my lid, then blend it up to my brow to highlight, then I put a thin line under my eyes right below my lash line as well and I get so many compliments! They're quick and easy to use, look great, and last all day. The only thing is their a bit messy to apply, but honestly with any loose shimmer you will have that. Super impressed with these, absolutely in love!

This is by far one of the most favorite shadows I had in my makeup case. It lasts so long. the color of Smokey topaz is perfect and brings out my eyes. This lasts all day. I use a bit of primer underneath. I am excited to try some of the other colors. I picked it up on a whim one day and it's one of my go tos when I want my eyes to pop.

This is my favorite powdered eye shadow!
My three favorite shades are Smokey Topaz, Pink Champagne and Champagne.
I use any of these colors over my eye shadow base (NYX Jumbo Eye pencil).
They work great and stay on all day.

I use the pink as a highlighter or a shimmer for across the shoulders. It is subtle, shimmery, lasts long... it's not one of my fave products, but I like it well enough.

I have been using these for a long, long time now and I honestly think they are phenomenal! They give you just a shimmery glow and can be used for so many different things (highlighter, eyeshadow, shimmer, ect.). I have them in 3 colors, Champagne, 14 Karat Rose, and Smokey Topaz. Champagne is a beautiful, shimmery, nude that will look gorgeous on any skin tone. It's a perfect highlight, inner corner, or school-appropriate shadow. It's probably my most used color. 14 Karat Rose is a nice pink, although I don't wear it much, because I'm just not really a fan of pink eyeshadows in general. Smokey Topaz is a nice, darker, purple that is beautiful. I tend to use it when I'm going out at night or if I'm doing a purple smokey eye. I can't really say anything about the staying power, it usually works decently for me. I haven't really noticed a problem with the packaging, and the brush is decent. Do keep in mind people, that this is under $5 (It ranges from $2-$4 where I get it). That's a pretty darn good eyeshadow for that price (Over half less of the price of most eyeshadows of comprable quality!) The must have shade I would reccomend (at least out of the ones I have) is Champagne. I really, truly adore this color. I will most certainly buy this product again, as it has become a staple in my makeup bag! (:

fyi ladies I was reading the blog of Mario Devidanovic (Kim Kardashian's makeup artist) where he posted a list of products he used on her for one particular look that he posted a photo of. She had beautiful glowing cheeks. He wrote that he used this in Opal as a highlighter on her cheeks with NYX powder blush in Peach on the apples. I couldn't believe it! :) Give it a try if you want to look like Kim Kardashian. Take that, department store snobs!

It's funny, I bought these in the same shades as the previous reviewer! 24k Rose, Champagne, and Pink Champagne.

The packaging truly does suck, but I *love* the shadows inside! They last decently, very pretty as highlighters or, if applied lightly, a lid-wash.

Will definitely repurchase if these ever run out (seems kind of unlikely at the moment!).

Get a coupon or a BOGO and try these out!

I love these and would repurchase but only to depot them.

I bought these in champagne, pink champagne, and smokey topaz and they are very shimmery and easily blendable.

But I don't like the packaging and rated this very low. Look around for a depotting tutorial on YouTube because the way this is packaged, you can't use your own brushes and the brush it comes with is fairly cheap.

I bought this to use as cheap halloween makeup (dd was going as a fairy, and I wanted something super sparkly to brush across her cheekbones and eyes. It worked ok for that, but one day I wanted to try pink eyeshadow (I got the rose and champagne) and used on myself. It's the perfect pink for my coloring; too many are either too pinky and make me look like a rabbit, or so gold that it doesn't even go on pink for me (Milani). So I keep it around for that, but I do hate the packaging.

I keep my makeup simple and these are great for a shimmery yet subtle wash of color that helps brighten my usually sleep deprived eyes. They last all day on me and are very easy to apply. The brush applicator sucks just like everyone mentioned so i just use another brush; dip and shake a little - quick, easy, subtle and cheap - just what i've been looking for. Edit: Just found the Smoky Topaz and love it. It's the perfect sublte purple that doesn't make me look like I have a black eye.
