I really REALLY wanted to love these eye shadow palettes. Yes, I bought both of them because of all of the glowing reviews. For me, these shadows are amazing but only for a couple of hours. I can barely get through half of a day of work without considerable creasing. This is very odd for me because I never experience creasing with any eye shadow. So, I thought that I was doing something wrong because these are supposed to be long-wearing and most review echo that. I figured that because they were so pigmented and creamy, maybe I was using too much product. I used as little product as possible- barely even one swipe- and I still had creasing by lunch time. I then tried every primer/base I owned and still have creasing by mid-day. I think I'll stick with my Make Up For Ever artist shadows. They have a similar feel and never crease.
