hell yes girl! it's quite honestly the best eyeshadows invented. mac is pretty damn good. ain't gunna lie. but... ben nye is the sh**. It's supposed to be for stage makeup, rightly so, but it's also has really great foundations, which are kind of heavy, because some people like me, don't like my freckles!

I use Ben Nye eyeshadow almost exclusively. I have dark skin and other brands just don't have enough pigment (they either barely show up or they look ashy). Ben Nye has, by far, the most vivid shadows I've ever used,

I've never used Ben Nye but have heard *so* much about it. Could you guys recommend what shades to buy to try the brand out at first / where I can buy them?
Thanks

Alrighty, thanks! I'll keep looking to see if I can buy it on the net.
Since it's stage make-up, is it really heavy or just highly pigmented? I don't want something that feels like cake

I have lots of eyeshadows and one blush ... they feel normal. The only difference is the amount of pigment.
