These iridescent colours in baby pink, greyish brown, mauve, and deep red-based purple with a flat white brow and tear duct colour, are great and will really bring depth and sparkle to brown eyes. I have never gotten so many compliments on my shadow and my eyes! They come in a great compact with a good sized mirror and two applicators that aren't half bad, though I would recommend using a brush to apply and blend. Oh the blending, these shades were made for it and seamlessly transition with minimal blending required. The colours sparkle and shine with out upstaging your peepers or crossing into a work inappro glitterfest. I am in Love!
I understand $56 is steep for eye shadow especially in this economy, BUT when sized up with it's competitors, namely Chanel, you seem to get way more shadow for your dollars.
+: amazing colours for brown eyes, easily blendable, stays put for hours, perfectly iridescent, great packaging
-: cost is steep
Note: I tried to take a photo of the colors on skin, but I do not have a camera that captures the awesomeness. I wouldn't want to under sell this great compact!

EO should have called this Dreamsicle if you ask me. It is really more of a vanilla/tangerine scent than coconut, but you don't hear me complainin'. This stuff is divine! It lathers like it has all the SLS in it that those not so earth friendly products do, but you won't find any of that here. You know what else you won't find? Synthetic fragrances, dyes or animal testing. Consequently, my skin feels lush and my conscience feels clean upon stepping out of my bath or shower. That's right no confining this bubble to the bath. It is super useful as a shower gel too, and at anywhere from $8-12 it is not going to have you counting out your coins.
+: Divine smell, low cost, moisturizing, Earth and animal friendly
-: none from where I am sitting
