I expected much more from this product. Clumpy, VERY thick, maybe it's because it was the waterproof version, but for $9 I expected more. Uncomfortable to use container (square). Very disappointed. Stiletto? More like "pump".
I LOVE this color! The Sunkissed goes better with my NW23 skintone than the Terra. It's HUGE, so not handy to pack in a purse (no mirror either) but great as a staple. I even use as a shadow when too tired, sick, etc. to do my whole routine.I wish it had a tad more shimmer, and was a little denser, but all in all it's a great product.

The colors are pretty pigmented, but texture a little "dense" which I've found is a problem with some Maybelline shadows, you have to dig a little off before applying. Lid color-somewhat shimmery brownish/grayish (no name on the colors) color, TOO warm for my coloring. Crease color-a pretty slightly plum/charcoal. Highlighter-Silver. Eyeliner or smokey-Black w/small sparkles. I would buy this again if the lid color worked, other wise I have to toss, give away, or combine with other colors I have. I wish companies would stick to warm, cool or neutral!

Blush brush-Nice product. Concealer-I liked this better for eyeshadow use! Eyeliner-A little big, but is stiff enough for liner use. Eye Shading-Do NOT like the shape of this! Doesn't work well as a shader. Who created this? A 5 year old? It should be angled or a flatter top at least. Worked better for applying lid shadow! Lash & Brow-Good product.

Good product, but I don't like the full size. Maybe because I'm a small person with small hands, I find smaller brushes easier to use? It does what it says-it shades well.

I like the small size of these brushes, but that's about it. Blend-Too big! For blending one's entire face I think! Lol. Def oversized for shadow blending. Crease-The shape is perfect, a sloped/soft angle, but it is TOO big! It goes up onto my brow bone! Also a little too soft. Shade-Ok, but an angle shape would be better. Esp if using the "v" technique. Smudge-A sponge like most smudgers are would work better than the brush. Too soft, seems more like a lipstick brush!
BEAUTIFUL color, a little warm for me. Kind of a matte bronze/java/clove color. Highly recommended as a great basic neutral for gals with warmer skin tones!
Nice color, a little too warm and light for me. Nice texture and staying power.
ANOTHER pretty color, just not the best on me. A slightly shimmery aubergine/plum tone, ok but not as good as a violet tone. Same complaint about MK mineral shadows-texture/staying power *Sigh*.
Another pretty color, but not enough "oomph" for me. Someone with softer overall coloring it would work. Same complaint as Iris-texture of mineral shadow not as nice as the Signature shadows, and don't stay on as long.
I love purple tones, they compliment my brown eyes (and cool coloring). This is a mid-tone color, pretty, but just did nothing for me. Didn't have the nice texture the non-mineral MK shadows do, and not as good of staying power.
Very pretty color, mid-tone (for the eyelid), soft rose w/soft shimmer, just didn't work for me. Great texture however.
Nice color, too warm for my NW23 coloring. Listed as a mid-tone, for the eyelids. Great color for someone with warm coloring. Smooth texture.
Very pretty color, matte, a little too light for eyelid, more of a highlighter (unless you prefer light lid colors, I prefer mid-tones), I only use shimmer or frosted highlighters. Nice neutral tone. Wonderful texture.
BEAUTIFUL color, just as described, Adobe. However, too warm for my NW23 coloring. Smooth texture.
