I purchased mine at Target for $6.99
I've heard a lot of people say that this is a dupe of the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill, which came out earlier this year. I don't own that product, but I've seen swatches and can see why this would be a drugstore equivalent.
The color I purchased is true to its name, a taupe with a lot of brown/bronze in it, very warm-toned. I actually like this color a lot, although I do think the metallic finish could sometimes be too much for day-time.
As far as application goes, this color definitely is more vibrant when applied with your finger, which warms it up. And although it did crease on my eye, it lasted longer (about 4-5 hrs) than any other powder eyeshadow I've tried without a primer on my oily eyelids. With the Urban Decay Primer Potion, it lasted a bit longer without creasing, but still creased after about 7-8 hours. If I didn't have such oily lids, I'd probably give it an A+.
Definitely. If I actually wore eyeshadow on a daily basis I'd definitely get more colors.
Would I recommend it?
