Review: I have learned to not expect a whole like from drugstore eye shadows. I find that sometimes they are way to powdery, caulkey, and the pigmentation is deceiving. I was wrong with this duo. This duo is a great dupe for Nars’ Pandora eye shadow duo but more affordable. The textures on the eye shadows are creamy. They go one the eye effortlessly and stay on. The white eye shadow is pigmented but yet glides on like silk. Both shades are matte, which is hard to find, and when you do find them they tend to be caulky and patchy in places. Going back to the white shadow, it is not stark white so any and all skin tones can wear it but goes on like a nice high light. The black eye shadow is one of the blackest backs I have every seen for a drug store band. It is a true black, very dense and smooth. The black eye shadow makes for a great liner, a setting powder for any liner you put on or even a dark shadow to smoke your look out a bit. Just be sure to use a light hand because with the shadow being super pigmented and matte it will be harder to blend out. I would also becareful because with any good black matte eye shadow it will fall out.


Overall: If you are looking for a dupe or even a good white and black eye shadow I would recommend this one. I love the pigmentation, the feel and everything about it. With this price I feel that you cannot pass on this one. Everyone needs a good white and black eye shadow in his or her collection. Happy Shopping.
