I'm a beauty consultant and I get these half off $4 to sell wholesale $8. I think the price for less than a gram is outrageous. If you figure the price of a high end pans like Anastasia Beverly hills which mary kay eyeshadow is the like the same formula and less than a gram per pan; you still get a better deal with Anastasia because they offer palettes of 12 shades for $50. Mary Kay doesn't offer palettes. The color scheme is underwhelming but pretty. But I'm mad at the price not the formula. I love how soft, blendable and pigment is lasting. But you have to deal with flimsy cheap packaging so you buy the compact $17 and pocket size. might as well buy a z palette for $20. so let's say you purchase mary kay compact and 6 shadows to fill it; that's $65. I say do yourself a favor and go to Sephora and get a palette. if you prefer singles, color pop $5 for very good eyeshadow with all sorts of colors. Mary Kay colors are basics. They try to sell you on the fact that it's enriched with vitamins a, e and c. First if all, vitamin c is not sustainable so maybe if you took it out, it would be less expensive. As a matter of fact take all the vitamins out because more than likely we are going to use an eyelid primer and none of that goodness is going to be absorbed. And even if you don't use a primer, I'm skeptical that an eyeshadow can help reduce wrinkles. so to sum it up, quality 5 stars, packaging 1 star, price 0 to 1 star. all together it's a 3 star if you don't mind the price but I say skip the shadows and get any of there foundations, tranluscent powder or blushes.
