Nicely pigmented; almost all twelve shades have great pigmentation. The only shades I had trouble with were the neon shades: 03 Shocking Pink and 08 Olympian Blue. Shades 01 White Lie and 05 French Vanilla slightly lacked pigmentation compared to others, but they are lighter shades to begin with.

Milani Powder Eyeshadow Review:
I really liked these pressed-powder shadows from Milani. The pigmentation was surprisingly good for a drugstore pressed shadow. The texture of these shadows was nice; silky smooth for most of them. They blend nicely too.

The only shadows I had any issues with as far as the way they felt and the pigmentation would be the two neon shades: 03 Shocking Pink and 08 Olympian Blue. They were less silky smooth in texture and not as great for pigmentation (needed to use more), but would be perfectly fine if used over a shadow primer.

If I had to pick a favorite shade, it may be 12 Just Perfect or 11 Caramel Brown, but really like all shades! You can't tell by the photos, but shade 06 Tickled Pink is a gorgeous golden pink shade... reminds me of the NARS Orgasm shade.

Overall, I think you get a great value in these shadows and there is a shade for just about everyone; I'd recommend!
