They glide on the lid with such unbelievable ease, blend beautifully, and the pigmentation is unreal. For the $5.00 price tag these shades are a steal for any makeup enthusiast. For my oily eyelids I felt these lasted quite well without a primer, but a primer can increase the longevity. Application is best done with fingers since it packs the color on much more richly. A synthetic brush can be used especially for blending, but using …
