Yay my eyeshadows arrived today :D A lot of people having been doing reviews on these eyeshadows and I got sucked into wanting to try these out for myself. I have swatched these instore and they have a lovely pigmentation and a reasonable selection of colours. These retail around the AUS$20 price mark each but sometimes you can catch them on sale [buy 2 get 1 free etc] but still a bit exy compared to the prices in the US >.<
I just bought mine on ebay from the seller [nikkidvc] who has a lot of drugstore products that are decently priced. [well works out much cheaper than aust retail prices :(]

Anyway back to the eyeshadows. I picked up 3 shades, because I thought these would be most wearable for me.
333 Golden Sage
890 bronzed taupe
899 endless pearl
I love the first two colours but to be honest I didn`t really like endless pearl. Endless pearl is a satin finish where as the other two are much more metallic. The metallic ones swatched and applied much better in my opinion. I wouldnt say endless pearl is really chalky i think its just my preference for shimmery eyeshadows in general. It makes a nice highlight colour. I wanted to use it as a neautral all over eye colour but it is a little light for my skin shade [probably hence why it came off a little chalky looking]
Packaging: These are somewhere between a pressed eyeshadow and loose powder. It comes with a little stopper which keeps everything in place :) Personally I think these apply much better with fingers than a makeup brush but for someone who has long nails like me, it can be a little cumbersome >.<
I kind of wish that there was the number and colour printed somewhere else on the container so you can keep track of it instead of keeping the ugly sticker. Its like 2 sides of a coin, the bottom looks nice and you can see the colour but you turn it over and its boring if you get what i mean. Not really a big issue but just something i noted.
I kind of wish i had picked up iced latte instead of endless pearl because the finish seems one i would like much more. however I think i needed a few less shimmery shades in my collection anyway :)
