I have a TON of different brands of shadows, with the majority of them being high end products. I can easily say that this brand is now my favorite. They go on beautifully, so pigmented and soft. They blend wonderfully, and last throughout the day (with primer, haven't tried them on my eyes without yet). They are definitely as good as, or better than, Mac eyeshadows. With the price of $6 per pan, there is no reason not to not give them a try! Love love love!!
