Like the rest of Lime Crime's loose shadows, I think that at retail price they are too expensive for how much product you receive. Otherwise, they are decent products. Despite how dark the blue looks in the pot, I had to layer it a few times for that heavy swatch of color you see in the above & attached photos. Also, when dry, it kind of applies like a matte shadow would and it has more of a sheen than a distinct shimmer like Circus Girl (yellow) unless you stare at it up close. Shoe Addict also leaves behind a light blue stain upon removal (when applied wet). Initially, I was pretty disappointed with the actual color of this eyeshadow because the official swatches are so misleading! I thought I was getting a wonderfully bright blue instead of this dark one.
I purchased this product on clearance and I am still returning it. Even on clearance it's too expensive and there is very little product. I wanted to try the item for myself and give it a chance even after all the negative reviews. I purchased several of colors that caught my attention. The colors are not vivid the pictures on the website are way to vivid don't get me wrong you can get that color but you will have to layer on color or use a white base. I sadly have to agree with all the bad reviews about this product EXCEPT for the customer service I cannot complain about the customer service I had a couple questions and I billing issue when checking out and they were all both answered and my billing issue was resolved promptly and correctly. I was also was upset at the fact the box gives the illusion that the container will be bigger that what it really is, the the box has a spacer A SPACER, who does that? why? I will be returning all the magic dust that I purchased. I will keep you posted on my return experience.
