I went to check these eye shadows after I returned my Clinique skin care purchase last week. The Clinique products irritated my skin so I wanted to get something else. I bought 2 Armani eye shadows and I think the shadows are really over rated. They are not too pigmented. Actually I'm having tough time getting the shadows to show on me. I'm sure it depends on the color too but the colors I picked don't show as much as I thought they would. I think MAC shadows are so much better quality and the price is right. I've tried Bobbi Brown shadows now too (I have 2 palettes) and I have to say that MAC is way better.
