This is an easy every day color for the eyes, and a perfect color for a blush. I am 60 years, with fair skin/ underlying yellow tone.

The image online looks orange. It's not.
The image online looks orange. It's not. I wouldn't have ordered this, except that I received a free sample and found it was a good color for blue eyes, fair complexion. Now Real Purity has eliminated free samples on special promotion days, which is the only time order. I hope they reconsider. Free samples sell products.
I ordered the fawn eyeshadow. I was very impressed. The color was rich and lasted all day. I applied it at 10 a.m. and removed it at 7 p.m. It was as rich in color as when I applied it, no fading. If you want a waterproof eyeshadow, this would work great. No budging when I splashed water on my face; however, it came off easily with make-up remover.
great color combo
Fawn and Walnut make a great eyeshadow color combo. I apply Fawn with an eyeshadow brush from lid to brow and Walnut for the contour color. Love the classic and natural-looking matte finish.
excellent for blue eyes
Walnut, Vanilla, and Fawn are excellent shades for blue eyes. Developed sudden allergy to mascara and used Walnut as eyeliner in lieu of mascara and it defines and enhances blue eyes. Vanilla and Fawn are subtle, buildable, and beautiful on blue. No itching, watering, or red eye. Also recommend the mascara; some complain of clumping but I've had no problem.
Very nice, natural colors
Very nice, natural colors. I feel good about using these colors because they have only the necessary ingredients. I feel like they are healthier for my skin. I also like that they are pure, but pressed, as loose eyeshadows can be very messy!
Here is what I've tried:
Coral - a soft matte coral, peach
Fawn - a soft matte beige-neutral
Lizard - a soft frosted forest green
Chocolate - a soft frosted grey-brown
Multitasking Hint of Color
At first I thought this was way to light to be of any use. However, I was so wrong! After I do my moisturizer and/or foundation (depending on how much make up I want to wear on any given day), I dust a little of this all over my face...concentrating on the cheeks. I still hit my cheeks with a little blush when I'm going out or want to bump up the look....but Fawn is a wonderful color to warm up my whole face just a tad. I have cool, fair skin in a light to medium tone (depending on summer or winter). I use it as a base on my eyes, which works great. It is sold as an eye-shadow, but I have found it to be a staple for my whole face. :)
lovely colors and easy application
I have now rec'd 3-4 different powdered eye shadows from you. They are all very lovely colors, accurately represented for the most part by your diagrams on line. A little goes a long way and they blend and apply very easily. I have a "less is more" philosophy regarding make up, especially eye color. I apply color lightly. Just for kicks I tried the "smoky eye" tech. with amazing results! That is more than I would generally do, but it was fun just to see if I could achieve the dramatic look. Your products make it very easy. Also, they do not irritate my eyes at all and are easily washed off. Yet the colors last as long as you want, no creasing, smearing. I have been able to use powdered or other types of eye shadows for so long. This is very refreshing. Thank You for providing a "clean" and natural choice.
These are the first compressed mineral eye shadows that I have found and I love them! No more mess with loose mineral powder eye shadows. Makes traveling with them a breeze. Smooth application with no irritation to the eyes and I wear contacts. Only wish there were more neutral colors to choose from.
