Nice eyeshadows for the price. I would never have thought that a pink would work on me (NC30-35), but paired with the dark charcoal shimmer, it looks fab! These aren't super-cheap in Canada, about $6 each (especially since you need to buy a palette to put them in, as the shadows are sold by the pan), but they're not expensive in the least. I think I got this duo for cheaper than CAD$12, too, so it was a good deal.

I love this duo - I mainly bought it for the grey. It is perfect for a smokey eye, or if I want my liner to be more subtle. I can also use the pink as a sheer, pretty wash over my eyelid.

I've only tried Corset which makes a great liner and gives the perfect smokey eye look. It's more of a soft black versus grey but I would never dream of putting it anywhere on my lids! Way too frighteningly dark! I will try Cake, the pink shade, maybe today. Pink E/S's have always scared me but I can pull off MAC Jest & Pink Freeze. I'm afraid I won't be keeping the Cake one but who knows, we'll see if I edit my review! Light pinks and dark greys look great combined in wardrobe but they are not colors meant to be paired on the eyes! I can't help but think Goth/pink eye sickly look. I bought it in the first place b/c you were getting a pair of shadows for the price of one and as said before, you never know what will work until you try it out! Since I like Corset, it was worth the purchase and it went straight into my face case.

I just received this eyeshadow today. I bought it when I realized that, after going through my dozens and dozens of eyeshadows, I didn't own a single dark grey. Cake solved that problem perfectly. It's a shimmery dark grey that goes well with my blue eyes. I don't like super-dark eyeshadows all over my lid, so I use this as a liner, and it works nicely that way. (I use it with a dampened slanted liner brush.) And Corset is a light shimmery pink - a nice color all over my lid when I want my liner to stand out. I don't care for the packaging, since it's just a flimsy plastic case. I would prefer a sturdier case, but for $6 for two large eyeshadows, I won't complain too much. I'd definitely repurchase.

This is a gorgeous duo that I knew I just had to have when I first saw it in the mark magalog. One of the colors is a very pretty light pink with barely noticeable silver shimmer, perfect as a wash over the entire lid. The other is a deep, shimmery grey that's fantastic used as a liner or in the crease. Both colors are smooth and very easy to blend. Like all the other i mark shadows, their lasting power is what I would call fair. Doesn't disappear, but certainly doesn't last all day and evening on me, even with a base. Still, for the price, mark's eyeshadows are excellent and I only wish these two gorgeous shades were a permanent addition to the line.
