Have this in turquoise. It is a bit too bright really, I got it because someone recommended it and turns out they actually use a green bourjois eyeshadow pot most the time. One day I put a lot of effort in to my eye make up only for it to really fade after 2 hours! Hence why I was recommended this.

It does stay on for longer (not sure about 24hours),
very colour intense,
good quality
I like the packaging
Feels nice when applying
easy to apply (and not that it matters but -cool name for a product).
Buildable :)

Really should have morr variety of colour options - in UK, dont knoe if its differeny elsewhere
Too colour intense really
Cant really get a smokey effect

I have two of these bad to the bronze and too cool. I've only had them for a little bit and they are do crumbly. When I swatch it chunks come out if the package. They go only really streaky so you have to spend a lot of time to blend it all out to fix it. Not to impressed.

I have these in 7 colors and absolutely love them! they last all day basically 8 hours. They can be used as primers with shadow on top.

LOVE the colors and how long it stays. My only one problem with it is how fast it dries but it's nothing a hair dryer can't fix. :)

I use one of these every day as a base for my shadows. Barely branded and inked in pink are my favorites. Tough and taupe is a great one without shimmer and a wonderful base for a smokey eye. Bad to the bronze goes with everything!!!!

I absolutely love this! I have the 'on and on bronze'. it's great as a base or even on it's own. too bad they don't bring all the colors where I live.

This is the type of makeup product that I will bring to a deserted island if I'm like exiled there. The quality of these presh babies rival MAC paint pots and some are even better in terms of staying power.

Seashore Frosts (LE): metallic sky blue based duochrome with seafoam green/light teal/peachy gold/slight palr bronzy sheen/hint of lavender with pinked peachy shimmer
Pure Nude (LE): ivory with golden/iridescent microglitter
Nude Complement (LE): light bronzy taupe
Beige-ing Beauty (LE): light peachy beige with heavy sparkles
Bad To The Bronze: dark metallic cool-toned bronze
Waves of White (LE): metallic white with icy blue and iced lavender duo-chrome
Sandy Shores (LE): pale frosty yellow with white/pale gold/mint green duochrome
Electric Blue: deep pearlescent navy
Barely Branded: metallic pale champagne-beige
Tenacious Teal: bright turquoise-blue with green shimmer
Tough As Taupe: matte warm grey
Pomegranate Punk: pearlescent burgundy-plum

All these shades, (plus other LE shades that are impossible to find in Canada, I would presume) are exceptionally pigmented, feel like butter on my lids, and pretty much stay on for 24 hours as advertised. They are waterproof, sweatproof, smudgeproof, anything-proof once they set and they set within a minute so you have to work with one eye at a time.

The matte formula tends to dry out a bit faster and tugs more at the skin, just FYI. But that's not as bad if you use a synthetic brush. Another thing, I find that using the ring finger to apply is the best way since the body heat melts the cream a bit and makes application even dreamier and creamier and generally awesome.

I rarely go and buy HE cream shadows now, and it's all thanks to these.
Prices vary depending on where you live and in Canada, these cost anywhere from $4.96 to like $9 if you unlucky enough.

Try, and fall in love :3 <3

I hate to be a Debbie Downer but here goes nothing: I love the variety of colors it comes it but I do not the way it glides onto my fingers and eye lids. it dried up SUPER fast. I am one to always tightly shut my makeup jars so my makeup does not dry up. after it dried up it would look clumpy in my eyelids and uneven.
