I notice that when I use this eye shadow, the pigments are very vibrant (but subtle), and I didn't need to put on a whole lot in order to get the look I wanted. The different colors compliment each other perfectly, and the shadow itself is very smooth and silky, and has a very nice texture overall. It also will stay on your eyelid all day without fading, and it's still vibrant on my eyes. The only downfall was that I noticed that there was a ton of fallout, but that's normal for shadows. This truly is a nice product for a wonderful price.
