I have been looking for this kind of eye shadow for awhile, especially in non crazy colors. I have noticed actresses wearing it and it really adds definition to their eyes. A few things: I LOVE the colors that are in this particular palette. You can go as light and as dark as you would like. Easy to switch from day to night time wear. My biggest complaint? There is no applicator and no easy way to apply besides using your fingers. I thoroughly wash my fingers each time I apply this. But., I fear cross contamination as well as bacterial growth. I put one finger and apply the lid color to each eye and then I switch to another finger and apply the crease color. I have tried using a stiff brush for the crease color but the shadow clings to it. It didn't come with an applicator or instructions so I have no idea what the manufacturer intended. So I recommend it for the great color but try and figure out a good way to apply it .
