I absolutely loved this eye shadow!!! I think it is perfect for any eye color and it is so cheap at rite aid that it is so worth it! If you like shimmer, shine, and sparkles you will love this to!

This is such a pretty color! I could see this looking especially nice with green eyes. Unfortunately, I'm a super PPP and it's just not flattering on me- makes me look tired/hungover/sick/like I've been crying- you get the idea. Also, I wasn't crazy about the fallout that left glitter all over my undereyes. This could work for darker skin tones though so may be worth a try.

I LOVE this product!
It's a really pretty "pinkish gold" color that really makes my green/gold eyes pop! It stays for a long time and is really shimmery, but in a "natural-but-better" kind of way.
It's also really cheap (I think I paid literally 3 or 4 bucks for it) and there's a really good amount of product in it. Im not sure about using it as a highlighter though, haven't tried it yet, but I think it'll be too sparkly for my personal preference on my browbones.
My only complaint is the packaging. The shape is cute and very transportable, which is great, but the brush is sort of awkward to use and two times I've bought this product and the brush has been sort of bent and splayed, or the top doesn't fit as snug as I'd like...but they're definitely still usable.
The only colors I've tried are the gold, opal dust, and pink champagne, and the PC is defiantly my favorite. I do want to try the 12 Karat Rose, which is kind of pinky however.
Needless to say, I WILL buy again.

This is a beautiful eye shadow color! Its like a shimmery-pinky color. It works great as a highlight and on the lids. My only complaint is the packaging... its a bit awkward :/

I absolutely love this color! The packaging is really stupid cause you have to use their little applicator brush which isn't the greatest quality but I don't care I still love this product. It is such a unique and beautifully pigmented color. It is advertised as a sparkle eye dust, but I use this more as an eyeshadow, it isn't light like an eye dust, it is more along the lines of a pigment.

I heart these! I've got them in Pink Champagne and Champagne, and use them regularly. The pigmentation is surprisingly good, and with a good primer they stay put.
Despite the name, the champagne-colored shades aren't too glittery, and I feel comfortable wearing them at work over my E.L.F. mineral primer. I like to use UDPP in Sin for a more dramatic nighttime look with more shimmer. To be honest, the ones I have are so neutral that I really haven't noticed if there is a lot of fallout. There definitely won't be huge chunks of glitter all over your face, though.
The brush that it comes with sucks, but don't throw it away! It fits snugly in the opening, which makes these excellent loose shadows for traveling - the brush acts as a stopper to keep the shadow from getting everywhere. I didn't realize this until after I tossed one of the brushes, and now I'm kicking myself. For actual application, I use my Sonia Kashuk small eyeshadow brush, which fits perfectly in the little opening. This helps keep me from overloading too much product on the brush, as well.
I did give it low marks for packaging - there are some advantages to it as noted above, but I can tell when it runs low I'm going to have a hell of a time getting in there to get the rest of it out. The packaging design is great, I just wish the inner plastic "neck" popped out to make it easier to get into. For the price, though, these are great.

This product comes in a tiny bottle that holds a large amount of the eyeshadow. A small brush is included that makes it easy to apply the eyeshadow. I LOVE this color - it is very shimmery and gives your eyelids sparkle. It isn't extremely noticeable, but you can definitely tell it is there. It is a very natural-looking color, so it would match any outfit. The only thing I didn't like about the product was that it was so dusty I had to be careful not to spill it. Otherwise, it looks great when it is worn and doesn't need to be used with any other color. Extremely easy!

ohh how i loveeeee this eyeshadoww....the dust has a beutiful shimmer to it and the color is great...although the color is pretty sheer and not like dramtic visible or anything....the shimmer isnt overwhelming because its a very fine sparkle. i have no problems with sparkles falling throughout the day...it lasts pretty long and stays put...its pretty cheap..like 4 dollars? but the bottle is weird...it took me a long time to figure out and i almost broke it after twisting the cap off the brush has a little handle that you just pull out...i tried twisting the handle and almost cracked the plastic...the brush is bad so i just remove it stick my own brush it apply and replace the brush it comes with....i do think that when i start to run out the dust will be harder to reach and get to i wish it just came in a little pot or the kind with the filter thing at the top like mineral makeup idk if it is actually being dicontiued or not but since i love it so much im going to buy doubles of this color champange and smokey topaz

Nice color, pretty good pigmentation, and nice and sparkly. A good kind of sparkly! Hate the stupid packaging though! Will repurchase.

This is such a gorgeous pinky-peach-gold shade that makes my green eyes really 'pop'. I really love it and its one of those shades that you don't really need to add alot to it, to make a really pretty eye look. Normally, i just put this on over UDPP, but today, i put a little bit of the NYC sparkle dust in the champagne shade (light gold) in the area near my tear duct, and then used a copper-y color over my liner, and kinda smudged upward. It created a really pretty look and was so simple. And, i imagine this color would really compliment any eye color. It is pretty shimmery, so if you don't like that, you probably won't like this, but its a very good kind of shimmery IMO. Its not garish looking, and theres no chunks of glitter or anything (like UDs eyeshadows). Give it a try, its definitely worth it, although the packaging sucks....the only good part of the crappy packaging is its harder for you to spill it, like with other pigment containers. I find the best way to get product out is to remove the brush and then tap some into the cap of the container, then use another brush to pick up the eyeshadow and apply! This also makes it really easy to apply wet, because you don't have to worry about getting the rest of the product wet, because you have what you need in the cap.

pros: inexpensive, lovely color and texture
cons: the packaging and brush are wretched. the brush sheds in a major way, which is ok considering the price, but the packaging makes it difficult and messy to use with any other brush than the one included.
edit: gave this to my mom because the color didn't quite work on me, won't repurchase

i don't think this is getting discontinued because i bought this either in november or december and it wasn't that long ago. but i really love this shadow! its really sparkly and the color is amazing! and if it's used wet, it is 100 times better! the only complaint i have about this product is the packaging. it has this really terrible brush right in the middle of it which makes it hard to get the product out. what i do is just pour some out into the cap, but i know once i run low on this, it's gonna be almost impossible to get the product out.

Made a review for Champagne and now have to make one for this one. Such awesome shadows! Love the color of this one, its pinky/beige with gold and pink shimmers. Awesome for anyone :)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
It's getting discontinued?? I feel like I've seen it recently, though! :( Sad day, because this stuff is fantastic. Great quality for the price! Of all of the colors I think this one is the least saturated, but it is still very pretty. It goes on smoothly and has a pretty shine.
Yes, the packaging is just awful, but I'll say this one more time: if you flip the bottle upside down and poke a hole in the plastic base, you can then pry out that disk and put the powder in whatever container you like. It's worth it.

Well after reading the review below me that they are discontinuing this i am upset!!
this is my HG eyeshadow. My friend used this and another champagne eyeshadow as her daily look and i copyed her. This eyeshadow has the prettiest color! it is soo easy to apply and lasts all day. The shimmer is great. I go for this eyeshadow everyday as all it takes is one sweep on the eyelid!

I GOT NEWS DIRECTLY FROM THE COMPANY SAYING THAT THESE ARE DISCONTINUED!!!!! AGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guess what news i got....OH MY GOD!!!! this is amazing! except the packaging... but the color is gorgeous! it is a medium toned beigey pink shimmer. the sparkle factor is perfect, there are no big chunks, and it gives you a real pretty, girly shimmer. the packaging is dumb... so what i do to us it is i take out the brush (this just gets pulled out, i thought you had to twist or something) and put the cap back on. then, i flip it over and lightly tap until powder falls into the lid. carefully, i take the lid off and stick a normal eyeshadow brush in there. then i can apply it easily! This shadow is gorgeous and i am so excited to try the other colors! i havent tried it on my cheeks as a highlighter, but i will update once i do!
update! so i have worn this the entire day, even outside in mist and i have no creases! also, i put a tiny tiny bit on my cheeks as highlighter and i really like it! what i did was i tapped some onto my bronzer, and then used my fluffy powder brush to pick up both e/s and bronzer! work wonderfully
today i tried mixing this with my loose powder to create an "illuminating effect" and it was too warmy-red for my yellow undertones

This showed up as taupe on me. I swatched it, it looks exactly the same on my NC30 skin as wnw cafe cream e/s, and that product is more convenient as an everyday e/s so I just use that.

This is a beautiful, light peachy-pink that is perfectly balanced between cool and warm. It doesn't look silvery on me, but isn't too warm either (in some lights it is almost beigey or sandy). The shimmer is incredibly fine and comes across as a nice sheen that isn't too metallic. The packaging is okay, and the included brush is actually not bad (small, flat, tapered) though I think the brush's quality can vary from bottle to bottle. Very inexpensive too. I already have "Smoky Topaz" (love that one) and will most definitely try more of these guys :)

I would recommend this to ANYONE who's shimmer shy but doesn't want to look dull and flat. Yes, it's shimmery and sparkly but in a very pretty (and not garish) sort of way. Love the packaging and easy applicator. This color is fab for day or could easily be ramped up for night! Fantastic find!

I bought this after seeing a similar color by a high-end brand in Cosmo. I was pleased with the results. I have fair skin with golden undertones, and it doesn't look garish like some sparkle colors. I use it during the daytime for a more natural look, but it also works suprisingly well as a highlighter for cheekbones.
