I got the Bentontine Clay. I could barely see the color. I like more matte colors. Might like a different color next time - will give to my daughter.
As a little older female, this tan is a nice base color for everyday wear. It doesn't age me but is a good base for other color or simple day wear.
Maybe A Different Color...
These eyeshadows are super pigmented, I will give them that, but the color I received was awful, at least for my skin tone. It looks like a denim blue and reminds me of a shade that would be worn in the 80's with crimped hair and bright pink lipstick. No, thank you. Maybe if I would have received a neutral tone I would have liked it better.
What is this, a sample for ants!?
I actually liked the blue color quite a bit, but the teeny little container it came in was sort of hard to work with in my regular human hands. If the full-size was $15, I'd buy it.
Love this eyeshadow!
I wear glasses, and the nude/light brown shadows completely disappear under my glasses. This eyeshadow in Blue Toile, just the right amount of pigment to make my eyes look lovely under my glasses. I would definitely buy this again!
I tried a sample size of the Granite color, and really liked it. The compact shadow, at first, seemed very dark, but after using it I realized that it is just the little bit of shimmer and tint that I needed for my everyday office look. I threw it in my purse to reapply for date night after work, and it built on itself very well.
a daily love
I use this product daily - love love love. It goes on nicely and stays on throughout the day (i do use eyeshadow primer too). It is very pigmented - i don't have to do multiple applications in order achieve a dramatic eye.
I got a tiny sample (tiny in a cute way, it's actually a nice-sized sample, about what you'd get in a palette) in my box a few months ago. I used it frequently then but forgot about it and recently pulled it back out. It's nice. I believe the color I have is Granite; it's a metallic taupe-like color. Nice pigment, shimmery but not too much. The color is a nice neutral, and even though it's a shimmer I wouldn't avoid wearing it during the day.
I fell in love with the tiny compact that came in my box. So petite. Its a nice blue, not one of the bright ones from the 80s ha. It goes on nicely.
My gorgeous eyes...thank MAKE for sampling such fun size
Satin finish in GRANITE....has not been replaced in my makeup bag. Smooth enough to apply with your fingertips if brush is not handy. Great sample Birchbox, keep them coming, send us other colors, pretty please.
