      Comments about Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Eyeshadow Set, Palette #1, 1 set:

      This is my first Kevin Aucoin product and I am very pleased
      with this eyeshadow palette. The colors are perfect for those
      with brown eyes, and I believe it most certainly can be used with
      any eye color. The packaging is very nice and the colors are
      just the right pigment and are long lasting. Easy removal too.
      I'm glad I made this purchase and I look forward to buying
      more Kevin Aucoin products.

        Amazing colors, like none I've ever found. They go on like silk, the shimmer is subtle but striking, and I use every color in the set. That NEVER happens. Kevyn, you are still very missed. Sigh.

            it's about time that someone, somewhere came up with the difinitive eye shadow palette for brown eyes! in my many years of buying make-up (i just turned 60!),everytime i see a beautiful trio or quad selection for brown eyes, i buy it thinking this is it..i'm done..no more hunting for the perfect color range..
            well, guess what? i AM done. kevyn aucoin is truly a genius..
            now, i guess, i'll continue to hunt for the perfect foundation (georgio armani is pretty close).buy this palette..but only if you want to be done!

            I love these shadows, but unfortunately I'm allergic to them. I'm also allergic to all eye makeup manufactured by Loreal. Perhaps they share a manufacturer. Other than that, the colors are beautiful and long lasting. They have a very slight shimmer which saves them from being too flat looking. I can wear them on the upper eyelid, but not close to my lash line. Overall, I recommend these, unless you tend to be allergic to eye makeup.

              Use a light touch & good lighting when applying - shadow can be surprisingly dark otherwise. Easy to blend & lasts all day for me.

              Kevyn will always be remembered. I have always admired Kevyn Aucoin's make-up artistry. The eye shadow palette was the first - but certainly not last - product from the Aucoin line I will purchase. Simply: The VERY best eyeshadow I have ever used! Power powder - a smooth, almost creamy feel. Dense, fully pigmented, yet translucent color. You can apply color sparingly, or layer for more depth, vibrance, even texture. The variety of looks - in this small palette is remarkable. Don't be fooled by the restrained neutral palette. It ROCKS! Thanks - I'll be back for more Love to All!

              Comments about Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Eyeshadow Set, Palette #1, 1 set:

              Hands down, this is the very best eyeshadow you will ever use or try. It is extremely blendable. It does not crease, shift or move. Though many of the colors in the various palettes include mica or other "pearl" components, these do not "escape" from your eyelids to the rest of your face during the course of the day. You can use the shades sparingly--you needn't load your eyes with lots of product--and the palettes are long-lasting. I am a huge eyeshadow "collector", and my favorites used to be Dior, Chanel and Nars. Now that I've found Kevyn, however, he leaves them all in the dust!
