I applied this makeup using the included sponge (to get a more concentrated application), but the colors still went on sheer and had to be built up to be seen. When used with a primer, they tended to last for several hours, but faded to colorless shimmery shades by the end of the day. It's no surprise when you look at the ingredient list, which starts with Talc. According to the EWG, this product is quite gentle, rating just a low on the Skin Deep database. However, this seems to be a case of "you get what you pay for," as, for $2, you are buying talc, mineral oil, and lake colors, which many natural product consumers choose to avoid. It was good to see that this product is vegan (E.L.F. is a vegan company), paraben-free (many of the studio and essential eye shadows are not), and appears to be accidentally gluten-free (though this is not confirmed by the company). If you're looking for a cheap eye shadow to experiment with or use occasionally, these sets might be a decent vegan option.
