I liked this eye shadow and I was happy with the color I chose, hot cinnamon. But, ... I could do without the sparklyness. I put it on and then there is sparkles under my eyes and on my cheeks. The description didn't say it had sparkles. I have only worn it once because of that.
Received as a "free with purchase" gift and subsequently purchased the compact. I like subtle colors and "Tranquil Moon" (satin) is my absolute favorite. With a hint of lavender it is just enough to notice but definitely not overpowering. It gives my eyes the pop effect without screaming it. I am over 50 and need to be careful not to use a mascara that accentuates the looser skin, and this does not. I sincerely love the color and consistency and have had pleasant compliments. I love this mascara.
I got the shade "Nude Fresco" and so far I've been pretty happy with it. I have moderately fair skin, and this shadow gives a nice, subtle shimmer highlight to my eyes without being too much to look natural. However, it does crease throughout the day. Overall, I'm happy I made the purchase though I may look for something different next time!
I started using this eye shadow a couple of years ago and was thrilled with it! When combined with the EL eye base, it's the best I've ever used. Blends nicely, lasts all day/night, and a decent selection of colors - although it would be nice to have more matte colors to choose from. I do like matte finish colors better, the Sandbar Beige is the best, it's most like my natural skin tone. I hope they never discontinue this color!
Enchanted forest is a beautiful color. I have green eyes and light skin and this color is not dark. It is a silvery grey green and I have never found a color like it at any store. I have tried greens before but just because someone has green eyes it doesn't mean all green eyeshadow looks good on them. This one is a winner.
The colour that I ordered arrived a bit darker than I expected, but it's pretty close. The shimmer to the eyeshadow is the perfect level - enough to add some pop to your eye but not so much it's glitter. The only thing that would make this better is having a slightly longer brush.
Based on reviews from other customers, I chose Glistening Gold and Enchanted Forest for my green eyes. My eyes look beautiful and the color is really enhanced. I don't look made up at all, just very natural. Used with a base, the color lasts a long time.
I thought most cosmetics were all about the same. This eye shadow proved me wrong. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day, no creasing or wearing off like other brands. Just wish the applicator had a longer handle to grasp. I'm sure I'll get used to it. I love all EL items I have tried. Truly a remarkable product line.
I bought this eye shadow in color "Enchanted Forest". I actually bought it based on a recommendation of one reviewer who said that it makes green eyes stand out. My eye color is somewhere between green and a little bit of hazel. This eye shadow color and the right amount of shimmer in it makes the green in my eyes more prominent. So overall I am happy. I also love the elegant packaging.
