Packaging is really cute. Only color that i would always reach for is the dark purple one. The other colors were just too sheer or too blah for me. I'm gonna try and find the dark purple shade in a single pot.

The review below breaks my heart :( haha, I absolutely love this trio and I don't usually say that about most shimmer shadows. The colors are sheer and not very true to how it looks like but they are so pretty! I mean it really stands out after I apply it to my lids! I use the light purple as an all over lid and the dark purple/brown on the crease and outer "v", after I put the light champagne in the middle to make it pop, love using this as a daytime smoky eye look. The packaging is very unique but a pain to store sometimes. I've dropped it a couple of times and one time the ball of the darker purple broke off! I was so sad! I tried to fix it using alcohol (saw it on someone's blog) but it didnt fix the problem much, ended up just putting it in a little jar I bought from walmart but there's so much product still so I'm very impressed and even though I can't imagine using this up EVER I would definitely buy again! BTW I've never experience much if any fall out using these shades and the double tip applicator it comes with is very useful, the pointier side makes it possible to put the colors into the crease with ease.

I really wanted to like this palette. I had it for so long and just couldn't get it to work for me.
In theory, these colors are lovely - exactly the kind of colors I like to use with my brown eyes, purple-y and brown. I tried to apply them dry and felt like I had to really work with the brush to get any shadow on it. Once I applied it the color payoff was horrible, there is very little pigmentation and a lot of shimmer.
I tried it wet and still wasn't in love...the only shade that got any use was the dark purple/brown one that I would occasionally use as a liner. I finally threw this one away and would not purchase it again.

This is my go-to eyeshadow trio. I've never tried it wet, but I love the colors dry. For me, it looks pretty natural, but really makes my eyes look amazing. I have two ways that I like to wear it-- one way, I use the purplish color all over the lid, use the dark color as a liner, and champagne-ish color on my browbone. My favorite way to wear this, though, is using the champagne all over the eye, the purple on the brow bone, and the dark color in the crease/outer corner of my eye. I always feel good when I wear my makeup this way, and tend to get cmopliments on it, too.
The quality of this product is good, too. It never creases with me, even when I don't use primer (which is probably one reason why I wear it so often-- sometimes I don't have time for primer) and the colors stay pretty vibrant all day. I never have to re-apply.
I have only two complaints with this product-- it's really hard to find in my area (they stock all the other trios but not this one), and the hinge for the lid breaks pretty easily. However, the beautiful colors make up for this, to me.
I've used a couple of their other trios and liked those, as well.

I have the other 2 baked sets. I was thinking this would work as good. It didn't the darkest color is too chalky will not blend. And has too much fall out. The 2nd colors like a pink mixed with a hint of gray. It is also like chalk. The 3rd color is not bad but not good. Sad that I picked this set up. I will not be wearing this. Wet is no better. It has no fall out but I used one of the colors as a liner. lol It cracked.

I remember buying this and never using it.
The colors were far too shimmery for my liking and not pigmented enough. The shimmer was also very irritating for my eyes.

I already did reviews for Baked Sands and Baked Sugar, and mentioned in both of those that the shadows all had an odd but very fine rainbow opalescence to them... well, it's far stronger in this trio. All the shadows in this palette are shimmery/frosty/quasi-metallic, and somewhat difficult to describe. The lightest shade is a frosty neutral taupey-pink color, the medium shade is a light, shimmery lilac-pink color with and alternating peach and purple opalescence (the best I can describe it, sorry...), and the dark shade is a halfway metallic deep maroon shade. The colors really are deceiving because they look completely different when used with vs. without a base. It's hard to describe, but without a base, the colors look more true to how they appear in the palette. On top of a base, though, the lightest shade becomes heavily frosted with not much of that pink color coming out, the medium shade's color also gets washed out and substituted for a more frosty look, and the metallic color gets darker without becoming more metallic, making for almost a depressing, stained look to the color. The two lighter shades are so close to each other, especially when frosted out by a base, that they're hard to distinguish from each other... the fact that the color gets washed out really doesn't help, and doesn't make them any prettier. I'd say these shadows are most functional as sheer toppings to other shadows for the shimmery opalescence effect. Otherwise, I would never use these on their own. As for the darkest shade, I'm not into that stained look, which really ends up making the skin look sickly, like I got punched in the face and am bruising. The packaging is terrible (as I noted in the other reviews), a dome shape that is difficult to open and impossible to store via stacking or standing on its side. I would not buy this palette again. Don't let the colors deceive you.

My sister gave this to me because she never used it so being a fan of two other baked trios (baked sands, and oatmeal), I decided to try it out. Compared to the other trios, this one falls short. The pigmentation is not strong at all and just looked like a mess on my eye. What a shame because the colors are so pretty.

I absolutely adore this trio! I have hazel eyes and these colors are perfect for bringing out the green in them. You can easily go with a more natural look, or build up the intensity a bit for a dramatic look. I haven't tried them wet yet, but I get good payoff with them dry, especially over a base. (One cool thing I found on bases for these: If you have the Revlon Cream Shadows in Wild Orchids [the purple one] the second shade from the right matches the lilac in this trio almost perfectly. They are both lilac with gold shimmer. The burgandyish shade and the pinkish purple one are also fairly close to the other shades in this trio. I just thought that was cool, and when I use them together I get a really neat effect.)

I'm a little disappointed, as the colours looked so pretty, but they are not very pigmented. I will have to experiment more (especially wet), but as of now, I can't see these becoming a favourite.

I bought this shadow years ago, and I'm convinced it'll take years before I use it up! I liked this set a lot. The colors go from your lightest (iridescent white/pink,), medium (a shimmering, sheer lavender), and a dark purple/mauve. It requires no brain work since all colors are present for a made-up eye, or casual. Totally day-friendly, and I used them wet too if I wanted a more dramatic effect. These can be a little sheer, (aka not heavily pigmented), but they do the job. I guess I had them for a little too long since the one shadow started to come unglued (yes they are glued in) to the container and fell out which was a little annoying, but it's still usable. I won't run out and buy another since I have other better shadows and this one still has MILES to go! I've since ventured to other brands like MAC and Bare Escentuals, but these are definitely reliable shades that I know I'll never go wrong with.

I got this in a free pack with one of the other eye shadow trios. It's a really good trio for a night out. I've found that it looks good with a purple eye liner

I got this trio free in a package with my purchase of the Baked Sands shadows. There is a pale shimmery beige that can double as a lid color or highlight, a pale lilac with an iridescent gold finish I like to use on the center of the lid for a little sparkle, and a nice deep plum for the crease that also looks good smudged on lower lashlines.
UPDATE: One of these shadows did break as the shadow "ball" did separate from the pan. As other reviewers have noted these shadows do seem vulnerable to breakage. I'll have to repair it via a YouTube tutorial on the subject.

I haven't tried it wet but maybe that'll work better. They are so frosty that w/ the lighter colors, you can't tell the difference between them. That's why I hate frosty shadows. However, that darkest shade is so pretty! It's pigmented and not shimmery at all! Easy to blend. I really like that shade... only though. And packaging is annoying.

My mom actually bought these and said that they were too shimmery for her and they caught in her wrinkles. I like them better than most eyeshadows. They are shimmery WITHOUT being sparkly and you can get cool effects with the wet look. The brush that comes with is a good size and the colors go on about the shade that they look. I'm not really a neutral girl, except for work, but I'd buy these again. I think the packaging is bulky, but atleast it doesn't come open in my makeup bag.

this is a good eye shadow.best when used wet. this is kinda pricey for drugstore but it lookes good on you

For some reason these aren't as pigmented as the sands collection, and I've had the pans fall out, too. But only with this set. I have to use them wet to get the effect I want.

I LOVE this. I bought it ages ago when it was coupled with Baked Sands for around $5, and it is one of the few eyeshadows that I use constantly. And I still have plenty left! Also it compliments brown eyes wonderfully, I always get compliments on how pretty my eyeshadow is when I wear this. It's shimmery without being too shimmery, and sooo versatile. It looks great as a day look, and even as a night look if you use the dark color on the lids instead of the lighter purple. If you apply wet, it's even darker and more brilliantly colored, and I've noticed that both ways they last really long. Also the applicator is better quality than most other applicators that come with drugstore eyeshadows (for instance the Maybelline Expertwear Quads come with really rough applicators), this spongey applicator is soft and I actually use it, a lot. I use the lightest color as a brow highlighter and on the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up, or you can put it on your lids for a sheer, light shimmer. These eyeshadows are AMAZING! I will definitely repurchase when/if I ever run out.

I only like two of the colors, the plum and light pink(?) e/s. The other light purplish(?) color barely showed up, even when i applied wet.
