This is such a nice and wearable colour and such a great product! This is in my top 3 most used eyeshadows - it can be worn in basically every look ranging from romantical pink to dark smokey eyes, and is a beautiful ingredient in a sober everyday look. It is a nice icy, greyish taupe with great pigmentation, and can be worn dry for a softer look and wet for a more glamorous gleaming look. I own this eyeshadow in several colours but this is my favorite one.
I haven't even tried the applicator, it looks cheap and unreliable.

This has to be the best eyeshadow I've ever worn for daily use. This color is perfect and goes with everything. I apply it dry for work, and wet for night/going out. I've owned this for about 2 years and I haven't seen the bottom of the pan yet.... meaning it lasts a longgg time. I'm sad that all the Walgreen's around me have discontinued the Isadora line, and now my only option is to purchase online.
The shadow is very silky smooth, and blends in very well with other shadows. Applied wet gives a very foil pigmenty like appearence, and makes the shadow last longer. This is a frosty brown-taupe. I wear it with a small line of black eyeliner. I've gotten so many compliments on this, and the color is best for blue eyes.

I've been wearing this shadow for maybe a year but recently for some reason I tried applying it with a wet brush. Oh my what a difference! It has tons of pigment, stays on all day and just gleams but not in a Las Vegas showgirl kind of way. It's a taupe-y/brown shade and complements my blue eyes, fair skin. Highly recommend this shadow.

This shade is a light shimmery metallic silver taupe. Since I'm a taupe addict, I just had to have it. It is cool so it may not look very good on some warm ladies, but if you've worn cool metallic taupes in the past this will be a nice addition to your collection. In the container the eyeshadow seems to be similar to MAC Mineralize eyeshadows, but these are far superior. This shadow is super pigmented, applies like silk, lasts forever, and blends like a dream. Some people may think that the price is a bit steep for a drugstore eyeshadow, but trust me it is well worth it. You get a ton of product for your buck. The packaging isn't fantastic, but is nice nonetheless. The compact is a round dome with a clear lid and curved applicator. The pan of product itself is also domed so you probably wouldn't be able to depot to save space. These shadows do seem to be a bit fragile, but no super fragile like MAC mineralized items can be. Definitely check these eye shadows out the next time you're at Walgreens you wont be disappointed.
My coloring: light yellow/olive MMM with dark brown hair and eyes.

99% of the eyeshadows I own are MAC, but every time I go into Walgreens, the Isadora Gleaming Wet Dry shadow display lures me over. The shadows look so soft and beautiful, but each time I pass them by because I thought $8.99 was too much for an eyeshadow sold at the drugstore. However, I finally gave in a few days ago and purchased one in Icy Khaki, figuring I couldn't go completely wrong with another taupe. I am so glad I purchased this - it definitely has one of the best textures of any eyeshadow I've ever used. It's very rich, soft, and nicely pigmented - just as good, if not better than a MAC Veluxe Pearl formula. I used a MAC shadestick underneath, and the color lasted all day until I took it off before bed. The color is a very cool (icy) silvered taupe, a little heavier on the silver than I would like it to be, but nonetheless very pretty. I will definitely purchase more colors from this line, worth every penny.

Gleaming Wet/Dry eyeshadow is a great alternative to department store brands. It's highly pigmented and doesn't even need a primer. This is available exclusively at walgreens/walgreens.com. However, I must stress this is NOT a drugstore brand just because it is available in a drugstore. Isadora is sold in IsaDora stores all over Europe. This is a high quality brand, much better than anything else you can buy at drugstores. This shadow goes on silky smooth. However, it is a little pricey at $10.49. In my personal opinion, it's money well spent.

These new dome-shaped shadows from Isadora are all so beautiful, that I caved and purchased one of each shade. There are six shades available right now at Walgreens, but the Isadora site shows more of them. The best part is, there are testers!
This Iced Khaki shade is the most wearable, pretty taupe I've ever seen in a shadow. It is a very cold grayed-down brown, with shimmer, and it's the first taupe I've found that does not turn warm on my skin. I did not even use an eyeshadow primer, and these Isadora colors last all day on me! They are the creamiest powder shadows I've ever found. I cannot rave enough! They are $10.49 USD which seems very pricey for drugstore shadows, but the quality is even better than, say 80% of what you find in department stores. I sure hope that Walgreens expands their Isadora line, especially now that they are discontinuing the Arissa line.

I think this looks a LOT like Shu 945. The texture is amazing and it goes on so well. You can find it (with a sample on display too) at Walgreens in the Isadora Spring Line. The dome shaped container holds a lot of powder and you can use it wet or dry. This looks amazing on it's own merit, or with Stila Kitten. Try it!
