First, I will talk about the packaging; I am really impressed with the good quality packaging. It is attractive and decent. The lid is of opaque plastic material, and is hard and un-breakable. It cannot break even in the shipping, which most of the products do, while they are in the shipping process.

The eye shadows are beautiful and very pigmented. Both the shades I received are gorgeous shimmery/metallic color.
Studio 54, is a metallic dual tone shade, of purple and blue. I think it is blue specks, which give blue shade. It is a metallic color, so it does not have any fall outs.
The eye shadows are very smooth and pigmented; which makes the application easy. Does not crease or fade away at all, even after a good 3 to 4 hours. The color pay-off is amazing, you can see the looks I created with it. I have not used any primer or eye shadow base. You can always build up the color accordingly.
Looks I created with the eye shadows:
For the first 'silver smokey' look, I have used silver eye shadow, which is Star Struck. With it, I have used some other colors too. As it is a shimmery sparkly color, you cannot wear it alone, you need another color to tone down the color. Though, it is a beautiful color alone.
I used the silver on my brow bone and on the inner eyelid.
As it has little shimmer/specks, it does have a little fall-out, but not as crazy as some of the shimmer shades. You can see tiny silver specks on my eye lashes too. IF you want to stay at a safer side, apply the foundation and concealer after you are done with the eye shadow, while using silver, and some other dramatic colors with it.
The other eye look is created with Studio 54, which is a dual tone color. I have used it on the eyelid. You can see the beautiful purple color, with the shade of blue peeking from inside and giving two shade effect. With it, I have used dark blue on the outer corner and dull gold on the brow bone. There was no fall-out after using this color.

Conclusion is, I loved the eye shadows. They are quite expensive for a single eye shadow, specially for US in Pakistan. But for girls outside Pakistan, these shades are worth trying.
