This is honestly the worst eye shadow that I can recall EVER using. I bought this in Taupaz at CVS on clearance but someone could not pay me to put this on my eyelids again. The packaging is misleading because the color appears to be a soft almost "pewter" color on the outside but instead is a murky brown once applied. Ironically once I began to use this the color on the outside of the packaging showed more of the true color inside (maybe I stirred the stuff up) The minerals stuck to the applicator in globs and made my eyelids look dirty and streaky. Also, once it dries it's impossible to blend or even remove. I just covered it up with another eyeshadow for the day until I washed my face. Just ignore this product and let it disappear into clearance oblivion where it belongs.

CVS is having a clearance sale on these in my city. I tried amethyst and plum garnet. Amethyst on me looks pink in some light, and very light purple in other light. Plum garnet looks like a dirty bronze color. Application is a little tricky due to how quickly this sets. Since I already have shadows similar to amethyst, and I didn't like the plum garnet shade, I will be returning these.

I hate how PF keeps putting out the same 8 or so icky, drab colors in different packaging. I bought this in "amethyst". Despite the name it's more brown than purple and is a pain to apply. One side of my eyelid is always grossly darker than the other and it dries so quickly I can't blend it up fast enough. I'm pressed for time in the morning as it is. $9 wasted.

It is difficult to blend but it is long lasting. It took me at least three times to get the right application. A wet Q-tip can simply fix a mess-up.

I bought this in Sand Stone which is a very pale beige. This stuff is clumpy and unblendable. I do not like the wand; it doesn't twist into the container which can open in my bag. I got this for $1.50 which is still too much. They need to go back to the drawing board with this.

Love, love, love, love this stuff! So easy to open and close, and I don't flick powder anywhere. I like the cooling sensation when I put it on, and the nice shimmeries it has. I have this in Sandbeige and it really hilights my eyes! I hope they make more colors of this stuff!

I have this in Sand Stone. It came for free with a bronzer I bought. It's a pretty colour but very difficult to blend. If you put it on thinly and quickly it looks okay but still a bit chunky and uneven. Glad I got this for free so I know never to buy it.

I liked the idea of using a liquid mineral shadow so I was anxious to try this new shadow. I've never used this brand before as I don't usually buy drugstore makeup but the ad sounded great. What a horrible product! In spite of shaking the product several times the shadow application (sponge tip wand) was splotchy and uneven. The color - Brown Stone - was described as "luminous" but it was a throwback to 80's super-frosted shadows. It dried almost immediately and made my eyelids look super crepey. And I don't even have crepey eyelids! All this plus super cheap packaging. I know there has to be decent drugstore MU out there but this sure wasn't it.

I just bought this eyeshadow in Topaz, and I absolutely HATE it ! At first, I tried it on my hand and it felt cool and minty. The next day I applied it on my eyes.. It goes on like a powder but turns on into liquid/ creamy texture within a few seconds!! Not enough time to blend it in really well.
It dried like a concrete on me and caked after just an hour or so. Not a good feeling and look. BE WARNED.. do not buy it, horrible horrible eyeshadow.I wish I could return it, but the package is open, total waste!

I was looking in the CVS for a highlighter similar to that pencil from Benefit, and I found these eyeshadows that are packaged like lipglosses. They are new as of 2007. On the package it says, "Long Lasting 12-Hour," "Loose powder transforms into sheer luminous liquid veil that sets instantly," "Minimalist formula helps reduce risk of eye irritation." I found all of these things to be true. I bought the ROSE QUARTZ, which is a shimmery (not glittery) beige/pink. All I have to say is HOLY GRAIL HIGHLIGHTER!!! It melts into the skin and looks moist but not greasy. Great for the inner corners of the eye and the browbone. Oh, and this is $6.99, so Benefit can kiss my bootay!

Let me preface with two points: I've never met an eyeshadow worth the time it takes to apply, and I HATEHATEHATE shimmery makeup. So if those two things don't apply to you, then mentally add a lippy or two to my evaluation. :-) The good about this product is that it doesn't crease as badly or as quickly as dry shadows, though there are many cream shadows that do much better in that arena than this one. The bad is that it seemed to disappear completely within a few hours. It was really too sheer to be "wow" even when first applied. So I returned it.

First of all, the colors are fantastic, beautiful application! I loved this package. For the FIRST TIME I can actually take a loose powder with me to work, the gym, etc. and KNOW there will not be a mess. It has an adorable little mirror on the package so it is super easy to apply (even in the car)!!! Please please develop more of these beautiful colors for spring and summer.

Wow, what a steal! This product is great because it provides mineral benefits without the cost of more expensive brands. I loved the cool moisture feeling when I applied it too my eyelid and found that it was much easier to blend then dry shadows. Plus the package is great, it has an attached mirror, perfect for a woman on the go!

I was really surprised how much I liked this product! The cooling feeling you get on contact is amazing!! I loved that it lasted all day without any creasing! I actually liked the applicator, I found it very easy to use and I didn't feel that you needed to be a makeup artist to use this.
I bought Sandstone and Rose and I think they are very pretty shades, I wish there were more shades to choose from!
