Holy Grail Status
I got it in Brown Perfection and I so happy happy I will get more shades. The color (dark brown with fine copper shimmer) is complex enough for this type of formula and stays put through out the day. What I liked the most about the formula is that a smooth thin layer is enough for even coverage. Many cream shadows are patchy and you need to keep adding layers and layers which end up enhancing the texture of the skin and can age anyone 10 years. This does not give me much time to smokey it out before it sets and doesn't budge so I recommend doing one eye at the time.

There's actually nothing to dislike about these sticks. So many compliments whenever I use this, and the staying power is really impressive. I have Laura's caviar sticks and have used them for a couple of years, when you are on the go nothing beats this kind of easy eye make up for convenience as you don't need brushes. So easy to blend. But since trying this I am completely in love. I was out all day yesterday and this didn't budge at all. It was rainy and cold then hot at the restaurant and thanks to Terry my eye make stayed flawless, no creases. It is expensive but the pigment is true so you don't need lots. I bought number 4 but covet the whole range, will definitely be building my collection up!

Best Cream Shadow Out There
This has the ultimate staying power. You can truly go 12 or 15 hours without this moving, transferring or fading. It's like cement. And yet....it's very buildable and blendable (though it does set fast, so you have to work quickly) and flattering.
I love the versatility, from a subtle wash of color all over the lid to using it with a stiff brush as an actual eyeliner, this is really great for those of us who like a fast, easy look that has impact.
Having said all that great stuff about this product, I do have to warn you that some of the colors are outright glitter bombs.
For instance, Misty Rock looks like the perfect mauve taupe color until you put it on and all you see is sparkle. That's not a look I'm particularly fond of on myself, so if you're like me, try these out in person if you can to avoid disappointment.
Other colors like Brown Perfection aren't shimmer free, but they have a very subtle sheen to them which is more likely to be flattering and actually show the color rather than glitter.
