I have this in Solar, which is a lovely metallic bronze color. This is a great quality eyeshadow, soft and blendable.

Senna eyeshadows come in a shiny gold flip-top container with a clear/frosty lid. They retail for $16.50.

All of their colors are manufactured in the USA, which I like as a consumer for the superior quality. Even when you buy their shadow palettes or envelopes, you get the exact same USA made colors. These eye shadows last the longest on my oily eyelids and when I use Senna's Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer underneath, I can wear my makeup for like 15 hours without worrying about it. All of their shadows are highly pigmented and blend like a dream. All of the Matte colors are highly pigmented, soft and easily blendable. None of the sparkly colors are chalky or gritty. None of these colors are ever streaky and the quality is consistently great. I'm sure you can tell that I am describing common problems with MAC colors, which I have come to really not like after trying Senna's shadows. There are 4 different finishes and I love them all equally - Matte, Sheer Glow, Sparkling and Metallic.

Here's my favorite colors:

Matte: Canvas (perfect base/light nude color), Lavender Smoke (smoky purple), Peacock (an AMAZING dark teal - words can not describe how great this color is)

Sheer Glow: Daisy (bright sunny yellow), Haze (pinky/purple dual reflective), Dazzle (golden/plummy shading color)

Sparkling: All of them! This is the best sparkling shadow I have ever used, and women of all ages look great wearing these since the sparkles aren't overpowering huge chunks of glitter. Pistachio is the most fun color, and Bewitched is the best lining color.

Metallic: Pink Martini (golden/pink opal-like highlighter), Fantasy (shiny blue/purple), Sun Dance (the most amazing gold - looks like real gold leaf), Firefly (reflective golden pink).

I have this eyeshadow in Aquamarine, which is a fairly sheer silver-blue-green. The formula is soft and easy to blend, but the color turned out to be a lot more boring than it appeared to be in the pan. Based on the other glowing reviews I may try another shade, but Aquamarine was a bit of a disappointing introduction to the line.

I have lots of Senna eye shadows that I purchased through Senna's website and I depotted most of them because they fit perfectly in MAC palettes. Senna has a large range of shades from neutral to dramatic, and they come in several different formulas. I haven't been disappointed with them yet. They're very nice quality and apply very smoothly. I will buy more! I have pictures of some of mine in my profile.

got marabou in a swap... LOVED it! it's a glowy mauve-ish pink shade. it's from the "glow" line of shadows by senna - they are very aptly named. it really does make my eyelids glow. they don't shimmer or sparkle, they just glow. perfect.

This shadow (FIREFLY & GRAPHITE) are very nice colors. The shadow goes on smoothly and evenly. Lately, they are not lasting as much as they did the first few days I wore them, not sure why.

I am trying more colors soon..

I got one shadow from senna and its a trio called happy 4th of july. It has a large white portion and a smaller red and blue strip. Kinda like the Pop eye cake shadows. I was scared about the bright red at first but mixed with the bright blue it was more purple so it wasnt scary. The white is a shimmery white. The shadow lasted all day and didnt crease but i did wear it with mac eye paint as a base. Alone it lasted quite a while too. Very pigmented shades. I would try more senna if i had any around.
*update* recently got my hands on another shadow. Masquerade is a beautiful shimmery rich purple. Not a red based purple but a blue based violet one. Very pretty. Nicely pigmented, glides on smoothly, lasts all day with a good base. The pan is the same size as a MAC pro pan but the actual senna container is a larger gold and white flip top compact. Retails for $16.

I'm very impressed with the silky texture and blendability of this eye shadow (would rate it way better than MAC for these qualities). This brand is available at only one local department store near me, and for months I could never find most of the eye shadow colors in stock (I just found out recently that this was because the company was in the middle of revamping their current shades). I finally tried the Pretty in Pink Face Folio, since I was so tired of waiting for individual e/s shades to come in. The Folio contained (along with 3 powder blushes) 4 eye shadow shades: Marabou (a somewhat frosty mauve), Forbidden (semi-matte dark purple), Amethyst (satin) and Tiara (matte petal pink). They are all so smooth to apply, and last beautifully all day without creasing (price-wise, though, the Folios are extremely high [$75], considering how much more you can get, for far less, in collections from Philosophy and other brands). I also purchased the individual new spring shade, Black Plum. This color is absolutely gorgeous, and wears perfectly as a liner. I would love to buy more Senna e/s, based on the quality alone, but doubt that I will anytime soon, since most of the new shades are of the glitter variety.

I have 2 Senna eyeshadows: Pink Slip and Amethyst. i got them in the Glamour Kit (awesome kit!). The pink slip is a light baby pink with a bunch of subtle glitter. looks very pretty on as an all over wash. The Amethyst is a pretty shimmery dark puple, amethyst shade that looks pretty in the crease with the Pink slip as the all over wash. very blendable and blends well. just wish the packaging was better. cute but so many other brands have better packaging. the same size as mac eyeshadows
