I recently ordered the lightest color available in this glimmer eye shadow, and it's very nice. I use one of the Bare Minerals soft brushes to apply. One swipe gives you a nice shimmery look, and you can add more for a more dramatic look. It is very smooth and stays on all day without feeling clumpy or rubbing off. I would highly recommend it. I will definitely be ordering this glimmer eye shadow in a variety of colors. However, I highly recommend using one of the lighter shades as a highlighter for under the brow. Really, I use this as all-over eye shadow in the summer for a subtle look. I think the darker colors would also be nice to create a smoky eye. Just be careful not to take too much onto the brush as the excess will fall all over your face like any loose powder eye shadow. This is definitely a superior product to any loose eye shadow I've purchased at a drug store.
