Too Faced Galaxy Glam Baked Eye Shadows in Magenta Moon, Amber Asteroid, Mocha Meteor, Super Nova

Super Nova, Mocha Meteor, Amber Asteroid, Magenta Moon
These Too Faced eye shadows are described as "opalescent pigments baked into silver domes and swirled for a multi-dimensional smokey-eye that’s light speed ahead of other shadows".  I got two of mine in a set from Sephora, and the other two I bought during the Too Faced 80% off sale, which made them a steal.  Like most baked shadows, these can be used either wet or dry.  If used dry, they produce a softer wash of color, whereas wet produces a much more pigmented and intense color build up.

These are marketed as being perfect for achieving a smoky eye, but what I like about them is that except for Mocha Meteor, they have a slight duochrome effect.  Super Nova, a black with purple cast, is the only non-brown out of the four. Swatches are shown as dry first, then wet.

Mocha Meteor is the least interesting of the four to me, as it's basically just a coppery brown.  Pretty, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Amber Asteroid is a brown with a golden green shimmer.  This is my favorite of the group, probably because it works well with my coloring.

Last is Magenta Moon, a brown with a pink cast.  It can be hard to distinguish between the browns based on these photos, but they do look different in person.  Mocha Meteor is more shimmery and the color of the swirls in the brown do give each a different tint.  It's a bit more evident when you see them side by side.  All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Too Faced currently has five of the Galaxy Glam shadows on sale for $17.55.  I don't think I paid more than $4 for each of mine, so I'd wait for a bigger discount if these interest you.
