The pigments come in plastic jars that have twist-off tops and sifters inside.

Quality: 8.75/10

Pressed Shadow
The pressed shadow in Serpentine Palace is a metallic forest green. It applies smoothly and the pigmentation is good.

Artistic Pigments
Lost in Nishitama is a shimmery terracotta brown. Secret Samurai is a shimmery, light taupe. Digital Dragon is a shimmery, medium gold. Shallow Depth is a pool blue with silver glitters.

All 4 colors have great pigmentation and apply evenly.

Cream Highlighters
Gold Rush is coppery and Rising Sun is a pale gold. Both have a sheen to them.

This product is smooth and creamy in consistency. The pigmentation is strong, but is easily thinned out with blending.

Cyber Gel Liners
White Rice is silver, Weekend Warrior is a light violet, and Bonsai Forest is a dark forest green. All the colors are shimmery.

These glide on smoothly but you have to layer Weekend Warrior because it’s less opaque than the other 2 colors.

These liners also dry up after a couple of months, so really make sure to keep the lids tight.

Ease of Use: 9/10

All of these products are straightforward to apply. The shadows go on evenly, the cream highlighters are easy to blend out, and the gel liners are smooth. You may need to layer the liners.
