I'll try and keep my review as unbiased as possible since I personally don't much care for sparkly/shimmery eyeshadows, but I was given this particular item for free, so I figured I'd give it a try. I'm not a big fan of L'Oreal products in general, but hey, free makeup. Please note that I used eyelid primer and setting spray with this particular product.
I got the shade Unlimited Sky, which is sort of a bluish-silver color. Applied dry, it's very unimpressive, so I tried with a damp brush instead. I did see an improvement in the color, but in order to actually get some decent results, I really had to pack the eyeshadow onto my eyelid. You cannot brush this stuff on - you have to get a generous amount on the brush and then pat it on, and do so repeatedly.
After piling the eyeshadow on, I wound up with shimmery blue eyelids. The color is a little subdued (so not insanely sparkly) and it did stay on for quite a while. Plus, I think applying with a damp brush actually helps bring out the shine in this particular eyeshadow. I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to makeup, and I personally would never spend eight dollars on a single color of eyeshadow, so the price itself would be a big turn-off for me. But, overall, it's not too bad of a product. I would not buy it for myself, but if you like shiny eyeshadow that isn't too loud or bold, this would probably be a good choice for you.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these eyshadows!!! They are just as good as the Georgio Armani Eyes to Kill, but they're so affordable. They're pigmented and gorgeous on the eye, and they don't have a lot of fallout either.
