First, the colors I got didn't match the description. I got no tiramisu. Instead, I got a shade that was actually lighter than the hot toddy so the smokey eye directions are wrong. This stuff is almost pure glitter and sparkle more appeasing to a teenager. A tiny amount sends your eyes into a shimmer like crazy - and you can barely tell the color of the shadow underneath. The price on this makes this a big miss with me. I needed a simple, daytime smokey eye. Since the colors aren't the same, I can't achieve it with the set, but further - it's not subtle... AT ALL.
This a great product from a local company to me in Portland, Oregon. These are great and having been a fan of these for years, happy to see they were on birchbox! These colors are simply beautiful! I am in love with the quality of colors and the little bird design and outer packaging is beautiful! Will definitely re purchase more of this brand!
Love It !
I love the colors and the shimmer. But my most favorite thing is that it doesn't make me sick or give me a headache which is hard to do with eye make-up for me. I really love this product all the way around. Thank you !
Creates a Fabulous Glow
The eye shadow I have used every day and I love the sparkle and bling it brings. The shimmer power I save for special occasions and have used it on my daughter for her dance recital. It creates a fabulous sparkle and glow.
A lot of pigment
While all of these colors are gorgeous, the pigment is a little to overpowering for my taste. I love a great neutral smoky eye but this is too much. I may try using a natural brush instead of synthetic to see if that changes the application. Like I said, colors are great but they are extremely bold.
Soft shimmer, super pretty
Firstly, I love that these powders are pure and for sensitive skin. I'm definitely thinking about investing in more of Altima pure products once I use up my other products. The hot toddy color is a little too orange for my skin, but tiramisu is a great darker color for when I want to do a smokey eye. I LOVE the shimmer powder for highlighting, it adds a perfect luminescence to add more definition to my face! It's a great little package!
HAVE IT, LOVE IT
I bought the set and it makes my eyes look so sexy! Stays on well. Blends well. Really like these eye shadows. Together they are a knockout. Great for the evening but I also us it for day time also.
This product is fun to use and the colors match my style perfectly. It gives a nice shimmer without being too in your face.
Love, love, love!
All 3 of these ended up looking really nice on my skin. I'm pretty pale with rosey undertones. I like to use the Hot Toddy and Tiramisu to create a more dramatic look. Otherwise I'll use the Hot Toddy for daytime. I use the Firelight as a highlight to my cheeks but have used it on my eyes too. Overall the colors are great and they last a long time. They didn't crease for me on my eyelids which usually happens.
I love the colors in this collection! They go on and blend together well. The only complaint I have is that the colors aren't more intense.
