I have the bronze shade but I want ALL of the shades (at least all the vegan ones) because this formulation is insanely great! The pigmentation is wonderful and it stays place all day -- even through my 18 mile round-trip bicycle commute! These are fairly easy to blend before they dry, but they dry quickly so you need to work fast. Usually I apply with my fingers all over the lid then blend out, either as a base or as an all-over shade. Also, it can double as a very subtle liner if you use a stiff, short angled eyeliner brush.

LOVE this eye shadow! I got plum smoke and it goes so well with my brown/hazel eyes. Let me tell you, I stink at makeup application..but this makes it so elementary! I use my fingers (probably a big no-no, but oh well) to apply it to my eye. I can make it as light or as deep as I want to. It also lasts a long time! I wore it through my workout and it never came off. I want more colors... Please get them back in stock, Tarte! :-)

I bought this in the pink and immediately fell in love. I was hoping they would get a lighter, skin toned color to use as my base color but alas, no such luck. This shadow is easy to apply (I use my pinky fingertip) and you can easily layer it to create a more dramatic look. I will say, though, I bought the shimmering bronze and was not impressed. I'm not sure if it's the color or if it was slightly dried out when I received it but either way, that guy sits in my drawer like a man in front of a TV.

I got this in the Seashell Pink. It's a very pale, bronzy-pink. While a lovely, soft shade, it barely shows up on my lids (I have very fair skin). I think it might be more dramatic or noticeable on darker skin--sometimes pale shades are like that. That being said, the formula is wonderful. I find that using my finger works better than an eyeshadow applicator or cream shadow brush. I can put more on that way & spread it around better. I have oily lids, but this mattifies my lids while still having a healthy shimmer to them. Lasts all day / night; no creasing. Really love the formula, but I would try a different shade for my skin tone next time.

I have this in Slate, and it helps me attain a really simple eyeshadow look. I just apply it over my lids with a cream shadow brush, and maybe if I have time, a little darker shade in my crease. It looks great by itself too. Very creamy texture, but it does dry out if you don't use it after a few months.

I have really oily lids, they look gross. I have to use a primer when I wear powder eyeshadow. I just got the slate and have used it a few times without primer, it's great! I was extremely skeptical, but now I can't wait to collect the colors! Lasted all day without smudging, fading, or creasing with no primer. It looks like I have the eyelids of a normal person. Slate has a pretty, understated effect (shimmer, not glitter). However, you can easily build the color. Primer underneath also darkens it. fairly easy to apply, I use the tips of my pinkies. LOVE!

I bought seashell pink and will probably buy more colors soon. Great fresh look, easy to apply and stays all day.

I bought this in Slate, and I wore it for a "Great Gatsby" themed party. It was amazing and it stayed on my lids the whole time!

I have gotten both slate and seashell pink. I love them both! For me I like to sometimes have a very natural look to my eyes, nothing too flashy that stands out as like "BAM! I'm wearing eye shadow!" And this is really great for that. I just put a little bit on my finger and rub it across my eye lid, and that's all I need, it is so pigmented. My eye lids always feel really soft after using it. And the best part about this is that you don't need a primer and it stays on all day without creasing. And if you do like a heavier look, you can just add more eye shadow. You just have to be quick with applying and blending because after like 10 seconds, it sets. I love these, I use them every day and I'm not even close to the bottom of the jar, definitely worth the money!

I bought this shadow in a very light color (that I don't see anymore) for the lightening effect and always liked it until I ran out. You have to use your finger to apply but it does the job well.

These give really nice color payoff and stay smudgeless and creaseless for me even without a primer, but I find them a little dry compared to other cream shadows, and a bit difficult to blend. They work best for me if I use my fingers, since the heat from my hands seems to make them a little more emollient.

I want to try this in shimmering moss and slate! They look like they would go on really smooth and last all day and night.

This is my favorite eye shadow. It stays on as until you take it off. I wish they would bring back the taupe.

I purchased this in Plum Smoke. I also have the Beach Bronze color (now on the Sale page), and the Rich Brown color which seems to have been discontinued. All the colors I have are lovely. If you have a light hand, they can be made to look very subtle, with just enough color depth and sheen to enhance your eyes without screaming "I HAVE TONS OF MAKEUP ON!!!". If subtle isn't your thing, they are very buildable, so just keep layering to the desired depth. Personally, I have never had problems with these creasing or caking up. I make sure there is NO OIL on my lids (including eye creams and natural body oil) and apply the cream shadow gently with a small, flat shadow brush. This seems to work well for me. I'm not sure if using a primer underneath these cream shadows would help prevent creasing or make it worse as I have never tried it.
