I really like the color of this eyeshadow. Its very good for a blue smokey eye or an overall dark blue shadow color. It also works pretty well on top of an eyeliner to set it for some color. The pigmentation is good, it lasts ok and pretty true to the color of the packaging. The only thing I dislike about this product is the packaging. Putting it on using the applicator creates some fallout of eyeshadow on the cheeks, so just use a brush and swipe the color from the applicator. Also, its quite pricy for a small amount of pigment.

I was so excited to buy this mascara after seeing the Youtube makeup artist Kandee Johnson rave about its lengthening capabilities. I felt a pang however, as I discovered that it was around 12 bucks. That's almost as expensive as some mascaras in Sephora! I proceeded to buy it, still, intrigued by trying out a "tube" mascara and the prospect of long lashes. Now that was a mistake. As soon as I put on the mascara (primer first, then the "tubes"), I was instantly unimpressed. That's it? An added step of primer and spidery lashes? I was very disappointed. The pro here is that its very easy to wash off. I will not be repurchasing--there are cheaper mascaras that give a more dramatic effect out there.
