I received a sample of the color "silver sands." I was hesitant at first because I have only used cream eyeshadows a couple of times before and I didn't like how they felt on my lids. I tend to stick to powder shadows for that reason. But this sample was different! First of all, a little goes a long way, so I only had to apply a small amount and it turned out to be a nice color. Second, after applying, it dried looking like it was wet, but felt like a powder shadow, so that was nice. Would like to try different colors in the future.
