The packaging is simple: glass jar with a heavy plastic screw top. It has a wide mouth that allows easy access for your fingers or a cream shadow brush.
It looks pretty blah in the jar, really. In shade it looks like a boring beige, and even in sun it's just another sandy gold. I wouldn't have taken a second look at it if a MA hadn't pointed it out as one of her favorites. But look what happens when you put it on!
The photos really don't do this shadow justice. It *glows*. I can't wear it to work without toning it down with a topping on powder shadow. It really brightens up my eye area, and it lasts ALL DAY. Really. If I put it on at 7am it is still there in all its glory when I get home at 7pm! And have I mentioned that after it sets it can't be smeared or smudged?
If you need an eyeshadow that lasts and lasts without fading or smudging, this is an excellent choice.
