This thing is great because it's a mauve and taupe combination that's nicely pigmented, but also light enough not to make anyone look like an inadvertent Taylor Momsen. Plus, the shades really brighten up your whole eye area. It's like a full night's sleep in a couple sweeps of a brush. Plus, it looks great on any eye color, so whether you're a hard-to-complement blue-eyed lady or a brown-eyed girl, it's guaranteed pretty. Oh, and you don't have to have deep sockets to love these colors — they're perfect for anyone who needs a quick fix for tired eyes.
