These cream eye shadows are awesome! They are so creamy, silky, smooth, pigmented and just all around great. They’re great when you're in a rush. Rub your finger around in the jar (always with clean fingers), smush it on your eye lid and you're out the door. Damn you Jersey Shore for ruining the word, "smush" for me. I mean you can literally put on your lid color, crease color and highlight in less than a minute. Maybe I'm not good at putting on eye shadow or something, but that is just extremely fast for me. Something I'd recommend that you do is get a small spray bottle and fill it with some Isopropyl Alcohol with the highest concentration you can find (it evaporates quicker, the higher the alcohol content) and do a quick spritz over the eye shadow you just used to keep your eye shadow from harboring bacteria, so that you don't infect your pretty peepers. :-D I'm going to buy the rest of the colors, except for the teal, because I just don't do teal. They also have pretty good staying power on their own, but I always put all eye shadow products over my eye primer when I know I'm going to be out for a while. Only on a really, really rushed day I did use these alone and they held up surprisingly well. Not as well as they do over primer, but I was surprised at how long they did hold up. The only downside to this product is that the jar that they are in is just WAY too huge. It would be so much better if it were in a smaller jar because I mean these things take up so much space. It is just kind of overkill. Packaging isn't important to me, so I mean that's a miniscule dislike. The product makes up for it. I think they are very worth $3!
