not the right color
Sampled

This is not the right color for me. Although I liked that the color is buildable or can be rubbed out to appear sheerer, this pink is not a flattering color.. and how do you sharpen it?

Bright but pretty
Sampled

I tend to prefer powder shadows, but since this was in my box I figured I'd try it. I received Jasmin, the pink color. It is not really a baby pink, but more of a bright shade. At least on my fair skin it showed up hot pink. It was easy to blend, however, and I was able to tone it down a little bit with just my fingertips. Paired with navy liner it was flirty and great for a festival weekend.

Different Color

The bright shade of pink has me not loving this - wish it came in colors that I would actually use every day. However, the application of this eyeshadow was nice and went on smooth.

Just OK

I received the green color in my April birch box. I did swatch the color and the consistency seemed very smooth and creamy but the color is something I would not use on my eyes. I have fair skin and brown eyes and usually stick to neutrals or purples. I want to say I wish I got a different color but all the colors seem to be a bit bright for my taste. I can see this working really well on someone with a darker complexion.

PINK :(

I love the thought of the pencil and the way it goes on, but unfortunately I received it in pink. Who wears pink eyeshadow? no me :(

ok but not a fan of the color
Sampled

I received the purple color in my box this month. What they describe as a "vivid violet" is a sheer pastel purple. Not gonna lie, I was not a fan of the color at all. I can't comment on the other colors, but this one was quite sheer without much color payoff. It was also very shimmery- too much for my liking really but someone else might not care. Much more shimmery than it appears in the stick however. I wore this over 8 hours without a primer, and I would say I have oily eyelids. There was a slight amount of creasing by then, but it was difficult to say for sure as it was so sheer. The coverage was not build-able as rather than adding another layer a second application would just start to remove the underlying layer. The pencil allowed a relatively easy application. I have a feeling that my opinion would've likely have been different with one of the more opaque colors. It smells terribly, but that really doesn't bother me for something I apply to my eye.

Blue eyeshadow?

I really liked the concept but the color was electric blue. Would be great to be able to state colors that I would use

I don't normally wear eye shadow but this is a very pretty color and goes on quite smooth.

Good for a bit of sparkle
Sampled

The pencil is a good size, and the formula slides on well. There's a deal of shimmer, but the color (Tej) is too subtle for my tastes. I would consider other colors in the collection after testing if they had a bit more payoff.

Awful Color
Sampled

This eye shadow is a nice consistency and the pigment is great, however I have red hair and received the bright pink- which is probably the one color I could never wear.
