Here are close-ups of the product in groups of 3, followed by swatches:
Group 1: 222-Infinite Sky, 998-Sultry Smoke (matte), 889-Midnight Blue
Group 2: 333-Golden Sage, 555-Perpetual Pearl, 999-Eternal Black
Group 4: 890-Bronzed Taupe, 891-Continuous Cocoa (matte), 892-Amber Rush
Overall, these are each nicely pigmented. All my swatches are dry so I can imagine how intense the color payoff would be if they were swatched wet. There is a bit of fallout so I recommend applying before foundation. Research indicates that they are varying in price between $7.99 and $9.49. I found mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $8.79 each. Considering Chanel's version costs $36 (includes a brush) and Giorgio Armani's version costs $32 (includes a "press insert"), these are a nice way to try your hand at these types of shadows, without the pricey investment of a high-end brand.
My rating: Booyah!
Have you found these near you yet? Same shades? I'd love to know.
