I love love love this eyeshadow. I bought it in the Taupe duo and it is a wonderful everyday, go anywhere color on my LLL skin and hazel eyes. I am fairly cool-toned and this is the first taupe-y colors I've tried that didn't apply as warm on me. The texture is incredibly silky and blendable, and I need to just tap my brush in the pan, whereas other brands (including Lancome, EA, Clinique etc) require several swirls of my brush to pick up enough shadow to apply. The packaging is just okay, and the brush included in the bottom of the container is useless as an e/s brush but is actually the perfect size for a concealer brush - and I think it's taklon - not sure, though. I plan to buy the Berries duo when I can find them.

I have been using PF eyeshadows for many years, I will be 50 this year and shiny glittery shadow is a no-no for day and almost always a no-no for evening, so I was thrilled to try PF and have stuck with it. Even Paula Begoun the cosmetics cop loves the shadow. Now, I also switched a couple months ago to Aromaleigh MM for my foundation and will never look back. That stuff is great, for face and cheeks, but I am very clumsy with the eyeshadows and was looking for a pan shadow. I have bought (with coupons on packages, cost each was about $4) three different sets and am delighted with all of them. I even use the taupish one for my eyebrow powder, here in Florida most makeup winds up around your chin by the end of the day, this stuff STAYS and never ever winds up in creases. Kudos, PF!

This is a great, long-lasting, matte eyeshadow. My eyes are very sensitive to everything but mineral eyeshadows, so I was really excited to find affordable mineral eyeshadow. It goes on smoothly, very matte, and is long lasting. My only complaints are that there isn't a lot of color selection, and that I'm not a fan of the way Physicians Formula combines 2 colors in the pan. Nice in theory...but I have to be careful that the brush picks up the same blend of colors when applying to each eyelid.

The matte formulations are wonderful--amazing coverage and staying power. I tried the luminescent ones and am not nearly as happy with those. One crumbled beyond repair and had to be tossed after one use. The other one ("nude", I believe it is called) is pretty, but just a little too shiny. Also, the luminescent ones do not seem to apply as evenly as the matte.

I'll start the reviews on these. I purchased two shade duos. Taupe Minerals and Terra Minerals. First, let me say that PF shot themselves in the foot by making the swirl looking pans. It makes the shades look muddy in the containers, which I believe may be why I'm the first to review them. When you look at these in the packaging it's hard to tell one color from the next. The shades are very neutral with no shimmer or outrageous looking colors. They are also pressed into the pans rather than loose like most of the etailer brands. The packaging is bulky but I throw them in a gallon ziploc and don't have a problem with it. There is a lid over the shadow and then a lower lid to hold the useless (already pitched) brush and mirror. Why do these people make things so bulky. and who needs a teeny mirror if you're going to put it on in the bathroom anyway. I gave packaging a 2 for crappy but non-leaking. The shadows themselves: Terra are light terra-cotta shades a teensy bit orangy and a neutral slightly orange brown. Nice enough for blue eyes, but not the pop I'd get from a truly rusty shade. Taupe are even better. The one shade looks to be a brown, but it's a non-shimmery white-ivory shade. Also included is a taupy brown shade which looked great applied with a wet brush. Very nice for my blue eyes and a good basic neutral shade. Despite my tone about the packaging and gimmicky swirl I like these shadows. I caught them on sale at Walgreen's for under $5 for 2 shades. My collection of Larenim and Aromaleigh are shimmery and fascinating for colors, but somedays you just want a neutral eye. Why pay more for taupe or ivory? I'm also planning on getting the berry shades when somebody gets them in stock.
