Absolutely absurd price for a single eyeshadow, but otherwise I have no complaints. The compact is grandiose for such a modest rectangle of pigment, the texture is exquisitely fine, like silk, so blending is almost a non-issue. But it's the color that got me.
I looked high and low for a lilac that effects the perfect faerie glow on my cool complexion, an ethereal but not insubstantial complement to the pinks and berries that populate my lips and cheeks while brightening my dark brown eyes. This hits the spot. It's not a chalky, easter-egg pastel, thanks to a pearl-grey undertone, and the shimmers are a complex mixture of silver-white and blue iridescence. It lasts well enough, longevity is not really an issue for me.
A point off for the price, I'd take off more, actually, but not only does this product deliver in terms of quality, it's also an essential shade as far as I'm concerned.
