Use

This product is marketed as an eyeshadow product in convenient rollerball form. The set of four colors ranges from a shimmery white to deep chocolate. These eyeshadows are best used for a night on the town, as they're very shimmery. They're not suitable for a work or professional environment in the least.

The ingredients as listed are as follows: The ingredients listed are Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Red 40 Lake, Phenoxyethanol, and Ethelhexylglycerin. Although there are no parabens, some people are sensitive to phenoxyethanol and/or ethelhexylglycerin, so do be aware of that.
    • Going out

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Although the rollerballs are a fantastic idea, in practice they don't work so well. You have to angle the bottle just so in order to make the powder come out, and then it feels like too much. The color is very thick and keep in mind it's SHINY-so you end up looking like a drag queen. You also end up with sparkle dust all around your eyes. It does feel good going on, but if it doesn't perform, what's the point?
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

I did not notice any odor to the eyeshadow, and of course I didn't taste it. As a rule I would not recommend ingesting beauty products..
    • No smell

Performance

This was another area of great disappointment for me, because the colors are SO pretty. The shadow doesn't last at all! I would say it lasts 3-4 hours, max, on not even a hot day (and I don't sweat much, either.) On the plus side, you don't have to worry about scrubbing it off! It does feel natural, not cakey or gloppy at all, and that is about the only good thing I can say about it, performance-wise.
    • Feels natural
    • Reapply often

Packaging

I really like the packaging for this set. It's elegant but still youthful and fun. You can see the shades through the clear plastic window. The box is fine for storage, or you can throw it out and keep the bottles in your makeup bag or whathaveyou.

A note about the bottles themselves: I have had this in my makeup bag for months and the bottles haven't leaked yet.
    • Does not leak

    I love that this is super shimmery, but hate that it doesn't stay on or anything. I'll stick with my cheaper, good quality mineral shadows. This is extremely outrageously priced! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the review. It's too bad it doesn't last longer.

    Cracked up at the drag queen comment. Thanks for sharing I was looking at these not too long ago. Maybe a good thing they are out of stock. If it does not last long then I don't want it.
