Thrilled! I don't usually even look at drug store makeup, but I wanted to try some cream shadows and different colors than I usually wear, so I thought I'd try these and if the colors worked I'd look for them in a higher quality. But these are fantastic, and I'm sticking with them. I bought Tough as Taupe, Creamy Beige, and Deep Forest (which is a gray-green) from the "leather" collection, and Barely Branded from "metals." They are so easy to apply and they all blend very well together. There is no need for primer, and they last all day long -- they do not budge. You can make the barest sweep of color or really build it, but you need to work fairly quickly to blend colors because once they set it's not easy to blend. I like to use them to line my lower lids since I don't like a harsh line there. I've applied with brushes and fingers and both work fine, but fingers really melt it in, especially for the lid color.They come in a small, heavy glass jar. Kind of inconvenient for travel, but I guess that keeps them fresh longer. I may transfer some to smaller containers for trips.

A worthy impulse buy for those who don't wish to pay an arm and a leg for MAC's Paint Pots. I grabbed the entire collection of 10 shades for $70, as SDM puts them on sale quite frequently. So that's $6.99 per 4 g versus $26 per 5g for MAC Paint Pot. I use mine as base for flaky shimmery MAC shadows as well as rich pigmented liner that is water resistant, however easily removable and won't irritate sensitive skin. Oily skinned ladies are advised to seal it with identical shade of pressed shadow for extra insurance. I've had the collection for over 3 years now and out of curiosity I just stuck my finger in Tough As Taupe 35 and glad to report it retained all the good qualities. It glides, blends, stays and leaves as you wish to manipulate it. No chalkiness, no unpleasant smells. For best results use your fingers or very good quality flexible brush with high density. Flimsy brushes will give you streaks and prejudice against this product.

I have to get on the Love Boat for this one. On a whim, I bought this on sale for dirt cheap. Tough As Taupe looked to be the one I'd use more often but in all honesty I didn't have high expectations for it. What a surprise! It applies easily with fingers in a dabbing motion and can be used lightly but builds up beautifully. One must be decisive however because it dries quickly and is practically bullet proof thereafter; oddly enough, it's easy to remove. This color plays with the light in gray, brown and a touch of purple; and although it's matte, it doesn't look flat. I'm tempted to show this new favorite to my DD but I know she'll steal it.

I avoided these for a long time as I have oily eyelids and I thought they would look terrible on me. Turned out, I was wrong. They don't look greasy on my eyelids, they're easy to apply and they stay put all day.

Been looking for a subtle eyeshadow to wear while teaching fitness classes. I don't normally wear a lot of makeup for them, but had a big presentation and wanted to look a little fancier than usual. I bought Tough As Taupe, Barely Branded, and Bad to the Bronze. I wore Taupe and Branded because the Bronze is a little too brown on my green eyes. I start to look a little sick.Well, they really stick on there! I am a sweaty-Betty and both colors lasted from 6 am, when I put them on, through the workout (very sweaty) and home around 14 hours later. I put them on with my finger. Taupe is very gray, but I used it as the crease shade. Branded is very frosted/shiny and went on my lids for pop. If I find something a little darker, I'll wear that on my lids next time, but it looked good. Made a statement, but still on the natural side. These shadows have staying power. I didn't use any primer and they lasted through a tough trial. Recommended to those who lose shadow over the day, have oily lids, or need to wear something very lasting around water.

I have Bad To The Bronze, Sleek & Spice, Pomegranate Punk, Fierce & Tangy and Edgy Emerald.I'll happily admit that for a lazy girl such as myself, these are a dream come true. Application is a breeze (it's ... eye-shadow. Creamy eye-shadow. It goes on as creamy eye-shadow does) and they really do have great pigmentation and longevity even without a primer. Not one of the shades had to be even touched up during a 10 hour period. None. Not one. Zilch. Zero. None. The tangerine is exceptional. Don't get me wrong - the others are great, they really are - it's just that the Fierce and Tangy-iness of the aptly-named tangerine shade is just phenomenal. It's not a colour I would have usually chosen for a matte cream shadow but I threw caution (or, more accurately, threw debit card) to the wind and bought it anyway. It is bright, there's no denying it, and the brightness is welcomed. But if you want or need to it also blends down beautifully to become a subtle burst of sunrise, enough to cause a second glance but not so much that it leaves an impression that your toddler just drew on your face with her best crayons.I love 'em. I do also agree where people have said that one or two shades wear exactly the same, because there's no denying that a couple of them do just that. But overall they're great value for money and these little blighters really do last and last and last.Bonus: they come off really easily with whatever you use as makeup remover. No dragging or harsh rubbing necessary.

I super love this product! The creamy texture is just perfect for application using my finger and it glides on the lid smoothly. The glitter adds glam to the already wonderful bronze pigment. I wear this practically everyday. I go light on mornings during office hours. At night, I apply more for a dramatic effect. The packaging is nice and one tub goes a long way. I have been using mine for almost a year now and I am only halfway through. Definitely worth every dime!

These are SO GOOD! :D So far, I have Bad To The Bronze, Chocolate Suede, and Emerald Green and have been using them religiously. Pigmentation: Beautifully pigmented! Fully opaque with one swipe.Lasting: Lasts all day. From the time I put on my makeup (noon) from the time I take it off (9pm) it literally looks perfect. It sounds too good to be true haha.Colors: So pretty! Ranges from neutrals to bolds to smokes. Many colors to play with ;)Formula: Just like they are described as; a gel cream. They are creamy like a cream yet they hug on the skin like a gel shadow/liner. Application: With fingers, it's very easy to apply and blend out. It's tricky with a brush because it is a thick gel cream. Although it's thick, it's not heavy. They are great by themselves and great layered. Wonderful eye shadows, want ALL THE COLORS :D

I absolutely love this! First I got the "leather" one in "Creamy Beige", which is a slightly taupe-y brown and looks beautiful smudged out on my lids. I loved it so much I got the white one called "Too Cool" and I use it as an intense inner corner highlight or as a base for bright eyeshadows.One day, my class went on a white water rafting trip (+ cliff jumping) and all my makeup washed off/smudged/died except my eyeshadow! I didn't take off a lippie but I felt like I needed to mention that, because it is a cream shadow, its hard to blend if you dont get the right amount of product on your finger, and especially when its already on your lid because it really won't budge.

I absolutely love this product. It doesn't really move during the day and i have quite oily eyelids. It goes on quite nicely and can blend with other eyeshadows nicely. This product doesn't run out very fast so you do get your moneys worth out of it. Very high pigmented goes on smoothly.
