I have had this color for some time. I use it almost daily, but didn't realize that it was suppose to last all day. I do not wear a lot of makeup and do not wear it on a daily basis, but when I do use this, I will apply it in the morning. By the time I get home around noon or later, it is no longer on my eyes and if I wanted the color to be present I would have to reapply. The actual colors are very flattering and would probably work on any skin tone. They blend well and look nice. You are able to make a smokey eye with the color available in the selection. It can easily be adapted for day or night with the addition of eye liner or heavier mascara. The colors are not bold, but subtle. If you wanted a more dramatic result, you could wet your brush and apply the power to your lids wet. The applicator that comes with the kit sucks and does not last. I have had to hold the sponge portion on the stick in order to apply the eye shadow.
