Review: The colours are so pretty and they do shimmer! They are not the pigmented type. The brown and gold can be worn during the day and black is best for night. These are awesome over eyeshadow, especially matte, just to add that extra little sparkle. If a primer was added, then this on top then the colour would boost a bit more.

I only worn this on a night out just to add a bit of sparkle to my eyes. Using this above a base whether the base is primer or eyeshadow, these do last long! As without, the lasting is ok especially with my oily eyelids. The shimmers are finely milled. I believe its more fine than the barry m dazzle dust therefore making it more harder to handle. Brush and fingers would be best. To get more of the product, wet the brush or finger slightly to grab more of the product. Just make sure it isn't really wet. For the price, which also includes eyeliners, it's worth it! Overall, I do like it due to its flexibility however I do wish they we're more pigmented.

Review: Pigmented and soft eye pencils. Pigmented from one stroke. All three are a lovely colour with matte and metallic eyeliners. These contain enough wax to prevent the skin pulling while applying. These have ok lasting power. They do last for around 5 hours then smudge due to my oily eyelids. A bit of primer before hand will help a bit more. These don't smudge as much in water. I had wet it and after one swipe, most of the colout is still there. After constant rubbing, the colour is still there but less pigmented. Even with vigorious rubbing, it's still there. Amazing I know. Price wise, these are worth it even though I've received it as a christmas present, yet I've researched this.

  2. First thing I thought when I saw the pigment swatches was that they weren't at all pigmented :(

  3. >< The pigments aren't very pigmented at all. They'd probably be better layered over cream colors. I like the blue eyeliner though!
