If you can find this at the dollar store, it's a great deal. The shadows themselves are great; they provide a nice wash of color that actually shows up. However, the packaging sucks. It's just a waste to use so much plastic for such a small amount of product, and the thin brush doesn't work well; it's better suited for lips. My eyeshadow brush doesn't fit in the tiny holes. But hey, four pretty shadows for $1? Come to mama.

I bought this for $1 from a dollar store. Yeah. I was really excited. I have the lip glosses, bronzers, and eyeshadows that came out in this line, and I knew this stuff was pretty pricy when it came out. But since it was limited edition, I was really happy to find this in Sub-Lime. I love the packaging. The given brush is really soft. I like the colors as a soft, simple look, or lightly brushed over other eyeshadows. Very glad I found this! I'd repurchase in other colors if it was available anymore.

I just HATE the packaging. It's very pretty on the outside, but the inside it just gimmicky and annoying in my opinion. I wanted to use my own brushes to apply, but the hole to reach the shadows is only big enough for the brush supplied...which is ok but doesn't compare to my own. So instead I used the little brush to take out the shadow, then patted it onto my own brush, then applied....phew! But luckily, the colours look really lovely and show up well on my pale skin. Not as sheer as I was expecting either. And they were only $4.99AUD each, so the dodgy palettes are reprieved....just. I bought Head in the Clouds and Sub-Lime. I had never had the guts to try any green eyeshadows since they are never recommended for cool, pale, blondes..but since it was so cheap, I thought I may as well give it a go, and they've brought out colours in my blue eyes that I never thought I had! I'm not keen on the russet colour in Sub-Lime, but I love the all the others. I wont be using these when I'm in a rush, since application is a fiddly pain, but I will be using them this coming summer.

I picked this up at the Dollar Tree. It was the only one they had & I almost didn't notice it. SO glad I got it. For one, this is *such* a cool case. I will try to post a pic of it. But the shadows are quite nice too. Yes they are sheer. But that can be very good, esp for daytime. Right now I'm wearing the peachy-tan shade, with the yellow as an inner corner highlight & a tan in the outer corner & in the crease.
The blue & green are very subtle & would also work for a great daytime look.
Not lots of drama here, but nice, soft, daytime-friendly looks abound

i just bought this and wasnt expecting much after reading the reviews on it. i am shocked that ppl thought it didnt have much pigment! i got Sublime & its very pigmented IMO. its a nice soft palette when used dry & when used wet the colors are fab! esp the teal/turquiose/green color. the rose/bronze color is a soft rose unless put on wet then its a brilliant bronze shade,very lovely. the lime/gold color is my least fav,but i think thats because i own so many brands of that same color. the cream color is very nice wet or dry, although i pref. it dry.
overall im glad i gave this a try even due to skepticism. im finding that Revlon has become an excellent brand over the years & im giving much more of their items a chance now =D

I RIS and wasn't really expecting much, but I have to say I'm impressed! The packaging is the best- when I'm done using up the loose shadows I will definitely add in my own pigment. There is a little hole in the middle for you to dip your brush in, but the little hole is covered when you close it. Well, onto the shadows themselves. They're not *really* pigmented, but as the name suggests, it's "Soft On The Eyes" giving it a very soft look that is subtle enough for everyday wear. I have this in Head In The Clouds. To my surprise- I really, really like it! (:

The packaging is wonderful and it def stands out from the other products. i bought this at Ulta for 5 for 10 on sale, and i have it in sublime and head in the clouds. Yes this is pretty sheer, but i find that when i dip the brush in a little bit of water or a mixing medium the shadow makes a wonderful eyeliner. So I use the brilliant turquiose shadow from sublime as a beautiful winged green liner! Overall, I love this product for the price that i've got it for (2 per palette) but i would never purchase this for the full price. took off one lippie because there is a lot of fall outs

I have this in two colors: Head in the Clouds and Whisper Sweet Neutrals. I bought this product excited by the packaging and by the fun colors inside--and it was on clearance at Rite Aid for only $2.50! However, I didn't read the packaging CLOSELY to read that these are SHEER loose shadows. The product is SHEER, as it claims, so don't be surprised unless you didn't read closely (like me!) Given that I now realize they are intended to be sheer:
Pros: Pretty sheer colors with just the right amount of shimmer. Really cool packaging--I like the color of the packaging, the design, spill proof aspect, and mixing wells.
Cons: The brush isn't very helpful--although it fits in the hole, not very good for applying the shadow. The shadow tends to get all over your face if you try and pick up a decent amount--you wouldn't be able to get enough on the brush for one all over sheer sweep without getting dust all over your cheeks. The packaging is also a little big compared to pressed eyeshadow.
As a sheer shimmer shadow (which is how Revlon marketed the product), it's decent, if on clearance because the regular price is a bit steep for drugstore. If you like sheer e/s, and can find it on clearance, give it a go. As for me, I probably won't buy this again because I prefer my shadows to be less sheer, and it's too much work and mess to build this shadow up on my lids even with eye primer.
UPDATE: I was able to decrease fallout through some practice with the silly little brush it comes with. AND the white color really looked fab on my lids today! But, it's still not reason enough to get me to repurchase.

I found these shadows at my local Dollar Tree today and I decided to pick one up based on the packaging. I decided that for a buck if I didn't like them there would be little investment involved. Well when I got home I did some swatches and was not impressed at all with the color payoff. I messed around with the package and was able to open up the containers, empty them and fill them with my favorite MAC pigments and Everyday Minerals eye shadows. Now I have a custom palette based on some of my favorites.

I bought these on clearance as well. I never would have considered paying full price because it was hard to see what you were getting. I actually thought the shadows were broken and not loose powder. The packaging is just awesome-I will be re-using these palettes again with my loose shadows for on the go in my purse. The compact is self sealing when closed so there is no mess and the colors do not mix. When opened there is a small hole to dip the brush into. The brush that comes with is adequate for touch up, I have found that my regular brushed dip into the holes just fine. The colors are sweet, soft and feminine. With spring around the corner I am excited to have these colors on hand. Application just dry is subtle. Wet is more of a soft, intense pastel look. I'm in love with them.

i got it for $2, b/c other people don't want it i guess... but the real price is $10 and i think that's a bit much. - i will only buy it again for less then $6. -and i got them for $2 lol!
but the packaging is awesome. and they don't fall out. but you don't get much shadows for the price. the colors are awesome too but you really have to know how to use them, just slap them on your face and they will look really bad. but over all they're too pricey, and you get too little. but besides that i think they're cool.

These eyeshadows are way too sheer to be priced at around $9. Thank goodness I got these on clearence for $2.50. They make okay highlight colors, so for $2.50 I am happy.

The packaging is great. The little wells that lock into place so no loose powder gets out. It's awesome, however, the color... not so much. You can't even really tell if I have it on or not. The colors are TOO sheer, it's not really worth it to cake on the stuff. I've seen better loose shadows.

I was sceptical of these at first, due to the not so favorable reviews. However, i decided to take the plunge and buy the Sublime set which has proven to be a winner. The color does take some time to get right, as the formula is loose, but once you get it right, look out! The product packaging is very good, in that you can dip the provided eye brush into the small hole of each color, so as to control the product. Only small beef is that sometimes, there is too much product on the brush and particles get spread over my face. I would recommend using the tap and buff method, to get excess shadow off the brush, so it won't leave particles on your cheeks or undereyes. All in all, this seems like a nice shimmery and subtle eyeshadow that I will most likely be trying in the other two sets of colors offered. Note: Only gave it a four lippie, as the excess keeps getting on other parts of my face. I think with time, this will be corrected however, as I perfect my application technique. Pretty colors and natural finish though!

i quite like most of revlons products
but this was kinda disappointing
the colours i felt couldnt give me more than a light wash of shimmer and the brush and hole was teeny tiny!

I have the Head in the Clouds version. The green and purple are very pretty pastels but the color did not show up well even with Urban Decay Primer Potion and I have very fair skin too. I plan to use it only as a light base for other eye shadows.

I got this in Sublime because it was on clearance at Walgreens and those colors looked brighter than the ones in the Head in the Clouds one. I was really interested in getting some loose eyeshadows while wandering in Walgreens, and there they were, so I got them, not knowing how they would be. These are very sheer even when applied wet. I use the brush provided to get the eyeshadow out and tap as much as will come off it onto the area they have for mixing and I use my EoB domed eyeliner brush spritzed with homemade mixing medium to wet the eyeshadow. After applying it, I go over it with the brush they provided to get the last bits of shadow off and try to deepen the color. I don't really like these shadows, but I think the case is great, so I'm going to use these up or at least use them so that they are only half full and then mix in some brighter pigments to make these more usable. These do not spill AT ALL when the case is closed, so they work well for travel as well. I'm going out of town for Christmas, so I have another month or so left to use these up some.
Edit Nov 16th: I'm liking these more now that I've used them every day. They are sheer, but they do shimmer too when applied wet, and I think they look great on me provided I mix them properly before applying them to my lids. Still love the case and my EoB domed eyeliner brush does fit in the little holes to get at the pigment, so I don't have to use their brush at all!
Edit Nov 25th: I have started using the brush that came with this eyeshadow set. I saturate it with the pigment and then wet it with my homemade mixing medium and apply. I started mixing shades and the pink and the aqua color mixed together make this mauvy brown color that is really quite pretty! I apply these every day and I can see myself finishing the pink and the aqua and putting my own loose eyeshadows in there to use. The off-white cream colored one is the only one I find isn't working out. It doesn't apply evenly the way the others do. Maybe I need to work with it more. I want to make more combinations to with the pink or aqua with the remaining two colors to see if they will work out better for me than being used alone.

I bought head in the clouds one.So far so good.

I did not like it at all! Its very shimmery, its hard to apply and it got all over my cheeks. I got it in Whisper Sweet Neutrals and all the colors look exactly the same. I am returning asap.

I wanted to love this, I so did.. I love the fact that when you close it, it protects the loose powders (even though there's only a teeny hole that they could come from. The four colours are quite light, and soft, just like the name suggests, but.. no matter how much I packed it on, the colour payoff was... for either a very pale person, but not me. I tried to build the colour, it just didn't work. :(
