This was a complete miss for the HIP duos that I have grown to love. Lets start off with that horrible pink color. That pink was so hard to use my brushes was picking up nothing. I dampened my brush with Fix + hoping I would get better results that failed as well. I ended up scraping my nail across the shadow just to get it out the pan. Horrible! As for the brown its a basic matte color, quality pigmentation I guess.

I used to eye the HiP eyeshadows when I was in high school, and now that I happen to get a hold of a couple of these Bright Eyeshadow Duos, I'm not sure why I wanted them so badly years ago. The colors look bright and promising in the pans, but applying them takes a lot of work. I find that the pans are so stiff that I had to use my nails to scratch the surfaces of each color to powder it up a little, and only then was it somewhat effective at building any intensity. Blending is terrible, since seems to apply unevenly even when patted thoroughly over a primer. This works out much better with wet applicators or brushes, but skip it if you prefer dry or on-the-go applications. I will be doing the latter.

I used this for the first time today and got tons of compliments. Product goes on smooth with great color payoff. It has been over 10 hours and no creasing! I am hooked on the HIP line. Will def repurchase

Good for the pink. Must use it wet for a really good eyeliner. Once you use it wet one time basically you have to use it that way from that point forward.

Not bad. Very pigmented. A bit chalky though.

Macbarbie07 recommended this in one of her tutorial videos and I instantly bought this duo. It comes with a bright pink and chocolate brown color. It really enjoy this in the summer or around Valentine's Day to spice up my look. I will make a repurchase of this again.

The quality of the matte e/s in this duo is better than other matte e/s in this line. Work well together and very pigmented. The pink is deeper and not so clownish and the brown is nice too. Its not as hard to work with. I used the brown on my lid and the pink in the crease and it was beautiful. Nice job L'Oreal!

I didn't like this product. I had high hopes for it when I bought it. The pinkish color looked really cute in the package and it looked like I could make a really pretty smokey eye with the brown included. Boy was I wrong.
The colors crease like mad. I really dislike it. I put it on for school and by second period, it had completely creased. I was ticked.
Not only that, but the colors fell flat for me. I do like the brown, I will admit that, but the pink is nothing like what it looks like it should be.
Also the shadows are very chalky and that's just something I dislike in a shadow.
Overall, this is a product I do not like, will not buy again, and would not recommend.

Great quality shadows :) I absolutely love HiP! (Great eyeliners as well!) These two colors are awesome, and I use them for a couple diff. looks :) I can use the deep side as a liner, and the pinky color in the outer v, crease, or over the lid :) (looks awesome with golds and nudes!) This duo creates a nice fun & sultry look IMO. <3 I love the pink so much, and the darker shade is so great to make any look a "night out" look. I would repurchase (I actually almost have too lol) and def. recommend :)
