i loved the packaging.

I also think that the eyeshadow is highly pigmented which is great. I put it on in the morning before going to work and i didnt have to reapply. One small sample can last for a while.

I got the green shade which was a great complement for my green contact lenses but i think that they can improve more on this because although it was great, it wasn't really that perfect.

Will I buy this? you bet i will. I hope to try other colors too. I hope they sell sample sizes because I don't think i can finish full-sized ones.

I would say I have mixed feelings about this product. The color was super vibrant and it went on very pigmented. It only took a tiny bit of product to spread a good amount of color on the lids. It has a frosty shimmer to it and goes on evenly, but tends to sheer out over the course of the day. The color itself, although gorgeous on its own and perfect for more whimsical looks, didn't totally work well with my warm morena skin tone. It's a very light and cool seafoam green hue that I'm sure will look stunning on fair skin instead. It performs fairly well and is awesome as a mineral makeup product, but I'd surely prefer trying out other shades in their line.

Amazing eye shadow! It's highly pigmented and doesn't wear off (even with oily lids). You'll only need a small amount for each eyelid. The shimmers aren't overwhelming yet looks incredibly great. I'll definitely buy this one!

The color is too cool toned for me but I like how fine it is. Minimal fall out, mostly because of the sparkles.i thought this was going to be dark but when I swatched it on the back of my hand, it is light. You need to really pack on the color onto your lid to achieve that greenish tinge. I did not break out from the eyeshadow which is great considering how sensitive my skin is. i would love to try other warmer colors from V&M now that I know I am not allergic to their eyeshadow.

Ordered this for my wife and one word to describe the product is messy. Difficult to use and is hard to apply.

Halo is a nice shade. I have fair skin and I liked the way it complemented my skin tone, It's shimmery alright and pigmented, thus it would take a brave soul to wear this out in the day. I wore it out and it garnered a few stares. The texture is nice and I do like using a primer underneath to bring out the color more.

I love mineral make-up. This is a good sized sample of mineral eye-shadow and you need to apply just a small amount because it is highly pigmented. The texture is good and easy to blend. However, I find the color and final appearance too shimmery on my lids. I'd use it as a highlighter if in a different shade. I think the price is reasonable and i would buy it -- but in a different color.

I like how the color looks on my eyes. Not too loud. It's really shimmery so I might not be able to use it as much. The texture is good and it's very easy to spread. The only problem I have with this is the container which is very messy.

First off, the color pay off is amazing! My only gripe is the container. I had a hard time trying to prop it open but after that, it was all great. The texture is nice, it doesn't have any weird smell and most of all, it didn't irritate my eyes. Would love to buy it if they change their packaging.

I don't usually wear eyeshadow but if I do I usually go for the muted ones. When I tried it, I like the way the color came out. Though the fact that it was not a pressed eyeshadow worked against me. I find it a bit messy to apply.

Its my first time to use powdered eyeshadow and let me say I liked it. Its very simple to apply, a little goes a long way. And even without primer or concealer or foundation, it stayed for hours. Would love to get different colors to mix and match.

I'm always on the lookout for mineral makeup, most especially those labelled paraben-free. Thanks to Sample Room, I got to try a paraben-free mineral eyeshadow :) The powder was smooth, application was hassle-free (I'm a newbie makeup wearer, hehe), the color was vibrant, and I didn't get any rashes the morning after coz I forgot to wash it off before I went to bed! Forgetting to remove your makeup is a big no-no and I'm just thankful Venus & Mars' mineral eyeshadow had no harsh chemicals.

Venus and Mars mineral eyeshadow smells like color pencil and it was hard to apply and even out but it lasted all day. Removing it is easy but i will not buy it because i had a hard time applying it and it was messy since its in powder form. The color is nice and attractive. Lastly, the product did not give me any irritation.

The last time I used a mineral eyeshadow was 5 years ago, it was all the rave back then. Getting this sample brought back those memories. I like the color, though not really an everyday color to be used. It has a slight minty scent to it which isn't necessary but works as a bonus for me. It didn't irritate my eyelids when I applied it, very pigmented when applied. The only thing that I don't like with mineral eye shadows is that it's messy but if there is a color that I'd like from the line, I think I will but one because it is still cheaper than buying regular eye shadows plus a little goes a long way.

What a gorgeous eyeshadow! In the jar, Halo's color is like pine green (think Crayola!) with chunks of glitter. But wait until you apply it on your lids. It transforms into a pretty shade that is a cross between aquamarine and mint. Although I am a matte eye shadow type of girl, I still find the shimmer tame enough to be wearable even for a day-time look. Very flattering to Asians' eye and skin color. There is no rating for the packaging but I am giving V&M five stars for not using plastic zip-lock bags for their samples. My only suggestion is for them to post a complete list of ingredients either on the container or on their website. I have a severe allergy to one common mineral make-up ingredient, so I always check the ingredients list before purchasing. All in all, I am pleased with V&M's eyeshadow in Halo and will definitely try their other shades.

I've been a fan of mineral makeup and V&M Mineral Eyeshadow is my first on these kind. At first, I was a bit hesitant 'coz i'm not the usual fan of green colored eyeshadow,but since it's really pigmented and the texture's nice, I came to like it. The packaging was just a bit messy though.

Halo is a gorgeous aqua green shade that makes me think of anything underwater-y whenever I look at it. It has shimmers in it but not too intense and sparkly; just right for me. It's definitely not an everyday shade (well, at least for someone who's more drawn to neutrals like me). It is fairly pigmented, especially with primer/base underneath. Just like with other mineral makeup, application can get a messy because of its loose form, so I make sure to always apply primer or an eyeshadow base underneath it. I also sometimes use it wet to make the color even more vibrant, especially when I want to use it to line my eyes for a pop of color.

This eyeshadow is very good for those with very sensitive skin. When I applied it , It looks heavy but it lightens after few hours. However, I just don't like how my eyelids appears like after it fades like smudges.
