My Thoughts:

So I haven’t only done the blue eyeshadow thing since middle school when I was first learning about makeup. Yes, we’ve all been there with the all blue eyeshadow like wannabe mermaids or something. I was surprised that D&G even made this color set because I don’t see it being very popular. Bold colors like this are very limited with customers because mature skin clients won’t touch this with a 10-foot pole, and I don’t feel comfortable only using these colors in one look. I personally think you have to offset it with other colors to make it look okay. When applied with only these colors, it just looks like big blue blobs/bruises on your eyes. I don’t know about you but unless it’s Halloween time, that look isn’t going to trend. For example, I’ll use the lighter blue as a inner lid shade, a light matte gray in the middle of the lid, blend out the crease with a dab of the darker blue and a darker grey, and then line my lash lines with the dark blue to give it a vibrant pop. The product glides on so smoothly and blends like a charm. It doesn’t pick up too much product when picked up by a brush nor does it have any fallout when applied. This color set is unavailable because I received it from a friend who works at Saks Fifth Avenue from one of her goody bags that she bought. D&G does not sell single shadows to restock if you run out of one color before another.
