|From top to bottom: Suede, Chocolate, Aqua, Pinky Beige|
Suede is a medium beige gold that makes a great neutral shadow for everyday wear. I applied this above the Aqua up to the crease using the doe foot applicator and it smoothed out fairly well. I used my finger to smooth out edges or clean up areas I didn't want shadow.
Using a shadow brush I applied Chocolate, a medium bronzy brown, in my crease and on my lower lash line. The main problem I experienced was the shadow drying before I blended well, visible by a too definite line of demarcation on one eye. I was afraid to mess with it too much and make myself late for work, but blending is the challenge here.
Pinky Beige is another great neutral color that applies as a medium peach tone and will work well with Chocolate. Update: I added a picture of Pinky Beige with Chocolate at the very bottom. It applies lighter than it looks in the tube and is more peach than pink on me. I really like it.
I had read a few reviews that indicated these shadows took a lot of patience to get them looking right, so I was expecting more trouble than I experienced. They applied well with both the sponge applicator and a shadow brush, you just have to work quickly because once they dry, they are set. I used an eye primer, which I do with all shadows since my lids are quite oily. Nine hours in and I had no fading or creasing, although I read other reviews that indicated they creased easily.
