Packaging: 8.75/10

This eye shadow palette comes in a rectangular, plastic compact with a flip-open lid. The packaging is light-weight, but also a little flimsy.

Quality: 6/10

Green With Envy contains a mix of neutral/brown colors and greens. All ten (10) of the shades have shimmery finishes.

The formula for these eye shadows is stiff and dry. I had to dig and scrape my brush over the top of nine (9) of the shades to get any of the powder to transfer onto the skin. Then, I had to apply extra pressure and go over the skin multiple times to get a smooth finish of color. The only exception to this was the second-to last color on the right side of the palette, which is a forest green color that went on fairly easily and with strong color.

Ease of Use: 6/10

This palette requires scraping of the eye shadows in the pans and multiple attempts at transferring the product from the palette onto the skin to get the colors to show up and be smooth on the lids.

Price: 9.5/10

Just $6.00 for ten (10) eye shadows shades for a total of 0.4 ounces of product is definitely a bargain. If only more than one (1) of the ten (10) shades were reasonable quality…

    I wish I had known about your site before I went out and purchased these. I am on a VERY tight budget, so even though they’re relatively cheap these were not even worth it for me. I agree 100% about the quality. I may even say worse. I got the green, blue, and purple one. & They’re all the same – the blue and purple have a few shades that are extremely bright and easier to apply, but they fade almost immediately.
