This is a really pretty peach colour, but unfortunately, it does not show up on the skin at all. I am very fair in skintone and even I could not obtain any colour payoff. It just lacks pigmentation all together. It is definitely a light wash of a shade, which I would be fine with, but even at that, it really didn't give anything. I will use it as an "invisible" transition shade for natural looks if I feel like adding an extra step that will barely give anything. :) The feel is nice and the shade in the pan is nice, even the package is nice (nice feel, closes and opens well). I haven't tried much in the Almay line yet, but this was very disappointing - I would have thought this was a drugstore product from the 1980s given the quality. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

I was attracted to this shadow due to its beautiful peach shade, but it's definitely lightly pigmented at best. I expected the shadow to be more pigmented, since it looks awesomely bright in the pan. I'm a little disappointed by it, but I use it with a dense eye brush and layer it on until I get the colour pay off that I want.

I didn't feel attracted to any other colours in the line, and I won't repurchase this shade because I like my eyeshadows to be really pigmented. For the price, it's alright, but there are shadows that are around the same price (Annabelle) and a dollar or two more (Nyx) that have much better staying power and pigmentation.

I don't use any other Almay products anyhow, but if this eyeshadow were more pigmented, it would be beautiful. The colour in the pan is such a true peach colour. It's definitely a shadow for people who like a more sheer colour pay off that helps to make peach tones more wearable for them.

I thought I had found the perfect purple eyeshadow. This is a complete waste. Do not buy. The color looked so deep in the compact until I tried it on. I has no color whatsever. It's like applying a lipstick that you think will be a bold vibrant color and it turns out to look like tinted chapstick. Very weird texture. Would not repurchase.

People have complained about low color payoff in reviews of other shades in this line, but my experience with Peach Fuzz was divided. I put it on with a sponge applicator, not a brush, and am able to get a good clear shade. But I do have to use a VERY heavy hand and keep dipping back in the pan. At $5.50 it's worth it.

I really wanted a peach shadow and Peach Fuzz was the cutest color in the drugstore. It was $5 (which is not bad for eye shadow) so I picked it up. This is kinda random but the little teardrop packaging is so cute!

I used it with a standard eye shadow brush over the $1 elf primer. As many reviewers said, the color payoff is very weak, but then again it's called "shadow softies" so I wasn't expecting bold color. For someone who likes natural makeup, this is the perfect color for a "pretty glow" kinda look.

The weird thing about this shadow is the texture. It's kinda "creamy" but yet powder-y at the same time if that makes sense. It's hard to get the shadow like off the brush because of the weird texture. Also it creases :(

Although I liked the color, there is definitely a better shadow out there! Not a terrible eye shadow, but certainly not the best.
