PACKAGING:The eyeshadow comes in a dual ended packaging with one end having the lighter shad hat has a round tip and the other having having the darker shade having a pointed tip for definition in the crease.


The lighter shade that is step 1 is a deep purple with slight taupe undertones making it  a perfect everyday wear shade. The darker shade that is step 2 is a beautiful khaki green with golden shimmer.


TEXTURE,USAGE & LONGEVITY:The shades are really smooth to apply and blend well resulting in a quick look.You can also wear single shade.Both the shades compliment each other very well.

It creates a nice, subtle and shimmery look.These shades can be used as base for powder eyeshadows too and the result is even more glamorous.


On my eyes,they stay for about 4-5 hours without creasing but i am sure that they will crease on very oily lids if used without a good primer.After hours you can easily fading in the crease and the intensity all decreases.


These are creamy shadows and are decently pigmented.It is easy to create a look with them but over use can lead to merging of both the shades that cant be distinguished!!!
