Probably the best eye shadow I have ever used.
Fantastic quality, great pigmentation, great staying power and it feels really nice on my skin.
They also blend very well, which i find very important.
I also only need a tiny amount and it will last all day.
I have got a couple of their beiges, browns, pinks and purples and I absolutely love them!
I have a solo purple (solo 07 my all time favorite purple eye shadow) which brings the green of my eyes to live really well, and it looks really natural and classy at the same time.

First of all, I got this e/s duo in "emozionante" for pretty cheap on eBay. At that discounted price, I would buy it again but I don't think I'd pay full price for this. Also, I have only applied this dry, without primer so far so I will be back to update once I've tried is with primer and applied wet - hoping my rating will go up!
* Very nice, flattering colors. The lighter shade is a very pale lavender, almost white, with just the slightest sheen. The darker shade is a matte, medium, grayish purple. They look great together and compliment my green eyes nicely.
* Applies and blends easily (with a brush, the sponge applicator that comes with this is pretty much useless). Easily layerable so you can do a sheer wash or a bolder application.
* Does not irritate my eyes, which are generally irritated by everything.
* No staying power at all when applied dry. I have oily, crease-prone lids anyway but this e/s fades and creases faster than any other shadow I have worn. Results may vary with primer or different application, but at the price they charge for this stuff I find it insulting that you have to spend more money on more products just to make it stay on for more than an hour.
*** Will try it wet today and then with a primer after I buy a new primer. Then I'll be back with updates.***
APPLIED DRY, WITH PRIMER: Stayed on longer but still creased faster than other shadows I've used. With a primer, it lasted through a bit more than half my work day but the creasing happened very suddenly after that so I'm not sure exactly how long it lasted. Basically, I checked it at one point and it still looked great and the next time I went to the restroom it was almost entirely gone, except where it was hanging out in the creases.
APPLIED WET, NO PRIMER: Could barely apply it, had to use a lot of product to get any color at all. Once applied, didn't last any longer than dry with no primer - AKA, less than one hour before creasing.
APPLIED WET, WITH PRIMER: For reference, used with BeneFit Stay Don't Stray. Better color payoff than any other application method and better staying power. Still creased a lot by the end of a work day but not nearly as much as above. Just to try it out - I touched it up when I got home: Very hard to do with this stuff - it's better to just wash your face and start over if you want to reapply before going out after work.

Love this! I have the 04 Caloroso. It's a duo of a deep bronze brown color and a very light peach, both with a hint of shimmer in them, especially the peach shade. I read the other reviews saying the colors are not very pigmented, but I have to disagree. I expected something very sheer from the reviews, but to me the a little goes a very long way. These colors make my reddish brown eyes look very deep and chocolate like. Great texture. I'm hooked!

This is, imho, a truly horrible eye-shadow. They compete with Bourjois for the title of Hardest Eyeshadow Ever, and are so sheer it's hardly worth the effort of taking an ice pick to scrape some off. The shimmer is nice, but the pigmentation borders on nonexistant, and the colours are relatively lackluster. Unless the testers I used were defective, I haev to say this is definitely one of the worst e/s's you'll be able to find.

I bought this eyeshadow duo in colour 03 Emoziante.This is the newest shade available.The other 4 shades are available for a long time already.This newest shade is also the most "spectaculair" one.Two lavender purple shades.
The packaging is ordinary.It comes in a plastic black box with a little mirror and a little eye shadow brush.
When I aplied the darkest shade lightly it looked more like a taupe shade.When I aplied a second layer it looked purple and when I aplied a third layer the purple became darker and more intense.Both the taupe colour and the purple colours were beautiful!Taupe looks great with my blue eyes and purple looks great with every colour eyes.The lighter colour is a bit shimmery wich I always like on highlighters.
This is a great every day colour duo, but it can be used for a more dramatic look in the evening too if you layer it (and use some eyeliner).
I don't no yet if it has staying power, but if you won't see any new comments on that from me you can be sure it has.
All Dr.hauscka products are natural and not tested on animals wich I think is very important.Because it is free of synthetic preservatives and scents the chance you'll have a break out or any other allergic reaction is minimal.
This is a great product.I recommend this to everybody who likes taupe/purple eye shadows!The only thing I can imagine people don't like is the typical scent it has.It doesn't bother me, but it could bother others.It is not a chemical scent.It smells like essential oils.It will be gone after a few minutes anyway.
The price was the same as the price of the lipstick (about 16 EURO).Only in Germany it will be cheaper.I should go sometimes to Germany and buy lots of Dr.Hauschka and Weleda products wich I like so much.I always go to the other neighbouring country Belgium, because I live so close to the Belgian border.
