I have medium skin and bright blue eyes and this shade looked different and I wanted to try some different colors on my lids rather than the shimmer silver and black smoky look that is my go to style for my eyes. I have a hard time finding shadows that are easy to apply and not outrageously priced and that also compliments my skin color and my bright blue eyes. I did like this shadow for several reasons but the color on my skin just looked funny. I think the combo if my skin and eye color just made it not work for me. I think this color would better suit those with darker colored eyes but it just didn't work with my blues. I liked the shadow itself, easy to apply, can be applied with a finger tip, brushes, or a foam tipped applicator. It stayed on long and lasted me all day with little creasing. I think when it did crease it was when I used too much trying to get the color right. I liked the gold color the best. I think it would look great with dark colored eyes and with the smoky style. Lighter colors by the nose and darkening as you work your way out to the outer eye. I ended up giving it to my mom and she did like the color but she is more prone to use browns than I am. Overall a good shadow just not my pick of shades. I reccomend it to those who like these colors because it is a nice shadow.
