About the Colour and its pigmentation:
A great highlight colour when you don't want shimmer - it's just off white and matte without being chalky. It's not super-pigmented, but then you don't want it to be for highlighting.
What is the texture like?
It's a very smooth shadow, not chalky at all, and it blends very well. It's very similar in texture to the Make Up For Ever shadows.
How long does it last and is it easy to apply?
It wears quite well if you layer it up, although I do experience some fading. It's easy to apply, as it blends easily and you can build the colour up.
How does the packaging look and how good is its quality?
You can only buy these in the pan and they're the same size as a MAC shadow. The packaging is fine for what it is. They're not as big as some.
Is it worth the money?
They're quite expensive for a pan - the same size as MAC but more expensive. It's not particularly unique - I'd compare it to MAC's Mylar but tt's worth the money if you want the colour and finish.
When to use:
Great for below the brow and on the inner corner you could probably use this for highlighting the top of the cheeks and down the nose if you wanted.
