Found this in the sale bin for about $2 (which is pretty good for a L'oreal e/s) and the colour didn't look that impressive in the pan, but I figured.. why not? I've had it for 2 or 3 years, and forgot about it. I noticed this today while cleaning out my stash and tried it on dry - looked okay (a good neutral eye) and applied pretty beautifully. Tried it on with my favourite eyeshadow "primer" (contact lens solution) and the colour was a lovely shimmery copper that suits darker skin tones perfectly. With some smudgy black liner this creates a really nice exotic and simple look! My only complaint is that the packaging is awful: the plastic 'window' in the lid fell out five minutes after I opened it, and the eyeshadow has gone to bits in the pan..
Great colour for darker skin tones overall. Might look great with blue eyes too!!

I found this in a clearance bin, can't remember how much exactly. The shade is a nice bronzed copper. It is a little orange looking on me, but I imagine it would be nice for those with tanner skin-tones. The eyeshadow is fairly pigmented, and is of a shimmery finish. I would wear a primer with this if you have oily lids because the colour doesn't last long if you don't. They blend well with other shadow colours and would look nice for a bronzed smokey eye. Might try this later in the Summer when I get a bit tanner. :)

I bought this on a whim one day because it was on sale and I'm glad I was able to use this as a trial for this line of eye shadows. The shadow itself is alright but the shade doesn't quite work for my skin tone. It's pretty basic, solid, typical expected quality eye shadow.

This is my favorite Eye Shadow of the moment. I found this at rite aid for just a dollar so check out your local drugstores and see if theyre on sale!
I use this color ON TOP of sparkling rose, and BAM I have my favorite neutral eye. Its such a gorgeous true copper color that I find works reallllly great with my fair skin tone, although I feel like this can work for alll skin tones. Its absolutley amazing on the outer V but I can definitley see that as an all over lid color. Im really happy with this purchase and if I can, I will try to find a back up :)

I was pleasantly surprised by this. Bought it SO randomly at d/s one day b/c I was getting tired of looking and just grabbed something that looked like a brown that might go with my blue eyes. I didn't read the name of it, but that might have clued me in that it was going to be coppery! So pretty, so pigmented, so great. I just love it. It's an orangey tone that is medium-light, but still darker than I thought it would be judging from the color in the store in the packaging. Not a color I see all the time in the drug store for some reason. It's not at all reddish or pinkish, just very orange with a yellow-ness even to it.
