I like my eye shadows I have quite a few to try to 'blend' them and they are all from different brands. This one comes from No7 which I bought from Boots and it is lovely.
+++ What it looks like +++
This comes in an oval shaped compact which has a little window in it so you can see the eyeshadow inside without having to open it. It has a little applicator in the compact too. I have several colours including an olive green and a dark grey.
+++ Using it +++
They are easy to apply, the little applicator within the compact is a good size and it works nicely. The sponge on the end of it is soft so applying it is nice. I have had an applicator before which is scratchy so wasn't nice but these are fine. The shadow comes away easily and then rubs off the aplicator well too so no having to press on hard or go over and over your eye lid.
+++ Effect +++
It is a lovely eye shadow. The effect is nice, it's quite smooth so you can blend it easily with other colours which can make it look casual for day time or more smokey for the evenings. It stays on well too usually at the end of the day I still have some remaining.
+++ Conclusion +++
I am very happy with this brand of eye shadows and continue to add to my collection. The quality is lovely and I am very pleased with it.
I have only used this product in one shade - iced mauve. It looks more like a pink, and is very shimmery, and is not as pink as it looks. This product can be used on any eye colour. If you have green eyes like me they will be accentuate. I have lent it to a friend with grey eyes, and her eyes look baby blue, she too loves it. I wouldnt reccomend this as an everyday eyeshadow, as it is a bit too shimmery. Also you want this special look for special occasions so people see a real change in you. It is buildable and you can make the colour a little stronger, however this will just be a little too powdery. I find that is spill too much on eyellashes if you do that. I prefer it to be rubbed in to get an even look. I Would wear this with a black mascara to bring out the colour more, as it is shimmery it is best worn with mascara. It really does transform your eyes, however I find the colour does fade afte a couple of hours, however even if it is barely there is still opens up your eyes making them look very bright. I always get compliments about my eyes when I wear this, and I am sure anyone would if they wore this too. I have not looked at other shades other than iced-mauve, but I would recommend you try this, I doubt you'll be disapointed. Also you get a lot of eyeshadow for the price - £4.85 Oh and a tip, make sure you dont have spider lashes, they should be seprated nicely as the eyeshadow brings them out. If you have clumped lashes it will only spoil the look!!!!
