I received this sample in a box and was surprised at how long the sample lasted. The color was a wonderful shade that you could down play during the day and use it to exaggerate the eyes in the evening. The powder is very loose and somewhat difficult to get used to but after a couple tries it seemed easier. Be careful with removing the powder that falls away and lands elsewhere because the pigment will stay if not removed correctly. Overall, a great product with wonderful colors and lasts a long time!
