Let's start with the darkest color, Mannequin
Comments: I love shimmer eye shadow that have very fine glitters/shimmer and this is one of them. The color is not too dark when you apply it and is build-able. It's easy to blend as well.
Next is the midtone, Kitten heel.
Comments: Same comment as above, although the color is too thin. I don't really see how much of a difference even after a second application. The color may improve if there was a lid primer but since I don't have that now, I cannot attest to it. I think this color will be better for those with fairer skin tone.
Comments: This color is the farthest from the one posted in their website. I am not a big fan of it though because after I applied it since it hardly showed. It would be a good base. It may be a great eye shadow for when you're trying a pin-up girl look.
Here's the swatch of the color on my arm, and since the back part of my forearm is lighter than my lids, I guess I am right with Kitten Heel looking better on a person with fairer skin.
Here's the swatch on paper.
I super love this packaging. It's super convenient, you just slide the cover and you're ready to go.
