ck one color makes amazing cosmetics. The colors are wonderfully intense and the pigments are so bright, which are great for staying power and really brightening the eyes. The shadows are long lasting and you can apply them wet or dry. Used as a powder, the eye shadow lasted pretty much all day. However, when applied the shadows wet, halfway through the day they started to crease. I was able to overcome this obstacle though, with the use of a primer before apply the eye shadow.
