Yes! I think they blend easily and have great pigment. They are pressed harder than say tarte shadows so I don’t get much kickback or fallout. I wet my brush when using the shimmers. It’s what I have on in my profile pic.
Yes, but I find them quite powdery so I would recommend using a primer. I use the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion which really works well with any eyeshadow. The colours are great and they are super blendable so yeah I would say really easy to apply. Worth the buy!
