These smell good, but the appeal stops there. They make my eyes water, even when I keep them away from my eyes, which is the main purpose of wipes for me anyway. I like to use them to remove the eye makeup I wear. I can't use these for that, and even when I use them on the rest of my face I get really irritated and teary. I will not be repurchasing.
I was intrigued by this product, because I have problems with some powder eyeshadows and their staying power. This claims to last 24 hours but I have even less luck with creams than powders. I decided to buy this color because it looks a lot like my beloved HIP pigment in Tenacious, which I love but is very messy to apply and has a lot of glitter fallout. This color is very similar, a rose gold peachy copper. I was very impressed with the texture of the product, and with the wear. The color payoff is intense and the glitter/shimmer is really deep. I prefer to apply it with my finger than with a brush, but it only takes one coat to look perfectly applied. It blends well. I don't know about 24 hours, because I am never up that long, but it wears all day with no creasing or fading. I like it with MAC Club in the crease, or on its own. I will definitely buy again and I went and bought 2 other colors to try.

When I first bought this, I tried to use it as a bronzer on my cheeks after I put on my makeup and it just disappeared so I thought it was pointless and it sat in my cabinet for months. But then I couldn't stomach having spent almost $10 on it and having it just sit there so one day I decided to blend it with a foundation that was a touch too light. I love it when used this way! It darkens my foundation about half a shade and adds a nice bronzey glow. I put a dab of it on my cheeks and chin with my foundation and blend them together with a foundation brush. It adds a more consistent glow than powder bronzer does. I recommend it for a subtle, natural glow on fair skin.
I love MAC eyeshadows and this one is no exception. I didn't use it a whole lot when I first bought it, but I recently rediscovered it in my collection and now I use it 4 or 5 days a week. The color payoff is great and the intense reddish copper shimmer looks great with a tan. I use it as an all-over lid color most often with a gold shimmer highlighter on the browbone. It works as a crease color too but I love the intensity on the lid.
