Interesting brown/ teal colour but the powder is difficult to work with. It falls onto other areas of your face easily and is tricky to get rid of once its there. VERY dark. It's only necessary to apply a tiny amount.

I think this is the best out of the Loreal Hip pigment line, I own a few of the other pigments and Intrepid is my favorite out of my entire pigment collection :) I think this was actually the first pigment I purchased when I first really started getting into makeup, the color is so unique and beautiful, a little expensive for such a tiny jar though. Mine is half full now, I loved it so much when I first got it that I wore the same Smokey eye (Alternating only crease colors) for like two weeks! So its now half full :/ and I should repurchase and I would but.... I think it was a little expensive for such a little jar and I really want to try Macs Blue brown ,even though I heard its a exact dupe, you get way more product for a few more bucks. Wears well on dark skinned brown eyed girls, stays on all day without creasing or fading on my oily lids.

This was my first HIP loose pigment purchase, a few years ago. Iím pretty sure I got it on sale or clearance somewhere, because I am not a big user of loose pigments (I generally find them messy and too hard to use). In the pot it looked like a nice, deep taupey shade, so I was surprised (unpleasantly so) when it showed up as a reddish-green on me. So it sat in a drawer unused all this time, until recently Iíve started looking into getting MAC Blue Brown pigment. When I found out I had this so-called Ďdupeí in my collection all this time, I became determined to make it work. The most interesting thing Iíve found about this is it is such a complex mix of colors that it really takes on a very different look depending on what other shades I pair it with (and likewise, I think it will show differently on everyone depending on your eye color, undertone, etc.). I get hints of brown, red, and green from this. Oddly enough, I consider it a neutral, because it really does go with many colors. I like this best applied over a taupe base shade, as this seems to cut down on the undesirable (for me) red tones and reflects more of a teal-green. I also like this over a champagne/gold/khaki base shade, and it reflects more of a hunter green. Because itís a loose pigment, its bound to be a little messy. Iíve found the best way to apply is to tap the jar upside down, and then apply the product that has collected in the lid using a dense, smudge brush. I buff it right along my lashline, and then just lightly blend upwards over my whole lid. It lasts all day over a primer/base shadow, with minimal fading, and without creasing. I am glad I didnít dismiss this shade all together, though it took a little experimentation to get it to work for me. Even though the jar is tiny, I use such a small amount at a time, that this jar should last a lifetime. I would repurchase, should I ever have the need & it was still available.

I really love this pigment. The only problems I really have with it are that it is a little too red and somewhat hard to blend. Besides, that I really love the color. It's quite unique for a drugstore brand (though it is similar to a few department store brand eyeshadows/pigments). I like to layer it over a gold, like UD's half-baked, to make the blue/green sheen come out, to cut the redness a little, and to make my green eyes pop. Overall, I'm happy with this product and will repurchase again if I ever run out.

I absolutely love this pigment! I picked this up at Walgreens on sale for $3, rather than the usual $11. It's a beautiful red-brown with an emerald green-blue duo chrome. I like applying the dry powder all over my lid and then applying it wet either near my lashline or in the crease. :) The duo chrome shows up much better when applied wet. Overall a great investment!

I have all the hip pigments and this is one of my 2 or 3 favorites. It's a unique color. A deep and vibrant douchrome. Excellent crease color for evening. All of the pigments are good and pretty and easy to apply, but some (pink, cornflower blue) are not worth lemming over because the colors are to be found in any m/u line. Not this one. Well worth getting.

I got this in a swap, and was intrigued when I heard this was an exact dupe of MAC's Blue Brown pigment. I own both, and let me say this: it's true! They look exactly the same, however, I can tell that the L'Oreal pigment isn't as finely ground as MAC's, but it still provides that beautiful iridescent finish that Blue Brown does. The only gripe I have about this product is that, because it's not as finely ground, it produces a lot of fall out. Of course it can easily be swept away, but it's still a bit annoying. Nonetheless, if I happen to run out of both Blue Brown and Intrepid, I will definitely repurchase this!

thought the color was very pretty. very sparkle and translucent.

Very pretty , Got it in a swap as an add on and OMG I am happy . Its perfect for a different twist on the smokey eye ( the green sheen ) and for foiling it is amazing! I love it .

Like some others, I got this on sale at CVS for 75%. Not being an eyeshadow kind of girl, I normally wouldn't spend the regular price for this. It is also my first pigment. I'm SO glad I got it. Its the perfect color for a dark smokey eye. I'm not very good eye shadow technics and have always wanted a smoldering smokey eye and this practically applies itself. I wet the brush, dip it in the shadow and slather it on, use a dark brown gel eyeliner and get a very pretty smokey eye. The negative is that lack of staying power - it seems to lose intensity very quickly.

This is definitely one of the most unique colors I've ever seen in DSs. Dark base, some say brown, some say gray with a nice blue/green shimmer.
I love most of the L'Oreal HIP Pigments, they are just a pain to use. I find when used wet you get much better color payoff and less fallout.

This is the only pigment out of the HIP line that I deem worth a dern and I looooove it!! It is not much to look at from the swatch on the advertisement..but when you actually look at the jar from different angles, you'll notice the unique and GAWGEOUS, multi-tonal goodness of this pigment! It is best applied wet..more vibrant, better color pay off, less fall out..and is an amazing, reptilian shade..green, blue, grey and silver all rolled into one outstanding color that I still can't quite put my finger on. As other have said already, it makes for an incredibly unique and beautiful smoky eye but also works as a great liner and outer V shade. I've never seen another shade quite like this in d/s pigments. Highly recommend this lil gem! The little jar lasts quite a long time too since all you need is a tiny bit to get an alarmingly dense pay off. Worth the money..highly recommend!!

I kind of love/hate this.
I hate loose eyeshadows in this kind of packaging.
Its messy to all hell...
The color is amazing, its brown based with heavy greenish blue shimmer
I love it with a dark smoky eye look.
too expensive, for all that I could buy what its duping... MAC brown blue pigment

I've been loving the pigment the last couple of days. I put it over a silver eyeshadow the first day and then the next day I put it over a brown pink base. For both days, I used a dark green eyeshadow for the outer V. It looked gorgeous. I definitely like this better on top of another eyeshadow than on it's own. It's a little pricey for the amount you get though.

It's excellent on top of MAC's Club eyeshadow. I wanted to get the Blue Brown pigment to use with that but this is a perfect dupe for less! And MAC pigments are so huge that you can't even finish it all in a year or two so this was a better choice. I got it for a bit over 10bucks

Edit: I figured out how to describe this. It's like a glittery bruise.
I am just amused by the color, which I can't even really describe. It is unique, and definitely too over the top to wear as a wash (at least for daytime, for me), but could be used for a unique smokey eye look.

My very favorite eyeshadow! I absolutely love this bi-color and the creamy consistence of this powder. The only problem I have is that I put a lot and sometimes get it on my other parts of face where it is not supposed to be and it is hard to wipe it off. Otherwise - it is great!

This is a weird eyeshadow, but I really like it. It's almost exactly the same color as Urban Decay's Lounge (and I also hear it's very similar to MAC's Club). This can be applied lightly, which makes it a reddish brown with a green shift. Applied heavily it's a dark, vibrant copper shimmer with an intense green shift.
Because it's loose, this goes on thicker and darker than Lounge. I wore it all over my lids today (dry, not wet) with primer and it can be tricky to blend the edges because the change in color between light and heavy applications is so noticeable. I think this would be really pretty as a wet liner.

I wanted to get MAC Club but never got around to it. Then I saw this for only $5. It looks a lot like Club, which I will no longer get, because I really like this. It's such a pretty brown/blue duochrome. It looks awesome. To me, there is a lot of product but you need to use so little, so I'm sure I will never use this all up.

First off this was $12 for this tiny drugstore pigment and I couldve gotten a mac one for $18 and it wouldve been like three times the size! Anyways it's a great mac dupe. Deff to small and too expensive. At first I tried to pat it in with a spongetip. Joke! These things are like little balls and you need a good brush you can really smush it with! I had to apply it differently than I would my other pigments because of the texture which kinda stinks. Subsribe to my BLOG please crazian-kifmaster.blogspot.com
