Product: 
These formula on these are an ultra pigment dense gel to both hold the colour and not dry down in the pan. They are all butter smooth in application with a finish that is shimmery or metallic.

What's impressive is that the formula doesn't dry out like other gel based eyeshadows and the closest to Makeup geeks I've tried is Yaby cosmetics Pearl Paints Eyeshadows as they too are one of the first to do the gel based eyeshadows but they also don't dry out in the pans.

If they Break!!!
It is heartbreaking to see an eyeshadow shatter let alone one your received in the mail already broken. My High Wire came cracked and when I flipped it over this happened.

broken pan
But don't panic! This formula is actually self-mending. No need for binder or alcohol, the strange truth is all you need to do it scoop up the product into the pan and press the product down with a sanitised finger. I tried used a cloth to press but most of the product actually cling to cloth, so I found a smooth cleaned finger worked best. lol

Gather back up.
Mushed back int the pan
Mended eyeshadows: High Wire on the second top right corner.
Verdict:
Definitely a keeper! these are sooo nice to work with and put a number of brands to shame when it comes to their shimmery shadows.
