Hello ladies,

I am an eyeshadow person as in I love collecting lots of Eye palettes. I do use them but not on regular basis. I never tried any eyeshadow from this brand before and I should not have as well [I thought so before]. I won this Gift hamper from "Body Shop" quite sometimes back but did not actually got time to play around this baby ... Enough of the background Let's just quickly get to the review part ...

PACKAGING : It comes in a transparent square box holding four miniature square boxes that contain the eye shadows. The bottom of the box has the details of the colors printed.The drawback is square boxes opens both way making it vulnerable to spill all over.

PIGMENTATION : The pigmentation looks pretty strong and lovely on the fingertips, but on applying on the eyelids, the colors just don’t show up well. Even quite few application are needed with darker shades too. Using primer do help a bit.

FINISHES : They have shimmery finish finishes to them which means a lot of fall-out ... SAD !!! but they can be used wet or dry. and Yes they are easy to remove :)

TEXTURE : The texture of these eye shadows are soft and smooth. The formula is really silky. It feels so light on the eyelids. It glides on the lids evenly with a little effort. Overall, the application need a little bit of effort. 

LASTING : The staying power is good upto 3-4 hours without any primers. When the eye shadow is used with primers, it enhances the staying power to 6 hours or so. 

OVERALL : I do not find its worth the price. It's not travel friendly. Shimmer falls all over the face, even the blending needs effort ... so Yeah !! won;t recommend using it ....
