I love this eye makeup. It goes on soft and buttery smooth. You can use the lighter colors on your lids and the dark color on your brows. You can even use the dark color as eye liner if you barely wet a teeny brush and apply it. However, this product came all beat up! It was not wrapped. It was just stick in a box. It was like powder. I could have returned it, but I kept it because I was completely out and really needed it. I made it work for about a month. Then I gave up and got a new one from the smashbox website.
So far this eye shadow seems to be of higher quality than the ones I've used recently; NYX, Revlon, Loreal.I'm aging and once oily eyes are now dry so I have to put a primer on first.So over the primer, the shadow goes on smootly. It does not drop fine particles all over my face like many other powders.I first apply with a brush and then mostly even out with my fingers.It doesn't have sparkle but it isn't flat either.It's just right. So far, I like it.
The colors are amazing and very easy to shade.But it crumbles so quickly.I’ve purchased at least two, thinking it was a batch and wanting to give it another try, but each time the result is the same:it crumbles!
I love the small case and the colors, although I wish that the company hadn't discontinued SNAP QUEEN. I have allergies, found that other with other powder eyeshadows, particles get into my eyes and are irritating. Smashbox Photo Edit Eyeshadow Trio lasts, isn't messy on the brush. I like that I can mix the darker color with water for an eyeliner look.
