The packaging is the same as the normal single shadows – but when you open them up you can see the difference in the pan – they are like a silky looking wave of shimmering metallic shadow.
I love how the shadows look in the pan, they look almost too pretty to touch.. but not quite too pretty to play with! The colours that caught my attention the most were Cyber Copper (a bronzey-brown), Cyber Green (a deep green-black shade, with some shimmer) and Cyber Pink (a pale pink with silvery shimmer).
It’s hard to describe the texture of the shadows – they don’t feel truly like gel or cream shadows – but they do feel something like super-super fine shadow that it milled so finely that it feels like it’s a liquid. It does have a slightly liquid feel to it, but it’s not a true liquid. If that makes sense.

There’s a bit of a difference between the shadows with the fine glitter in them – the cyber copper (bronzy/brown) felt the smoothest and this was the one without glitter in it. The cyber green shade comes out almost black-green with a mixture of bronze and gold glitters.
The cyber copper shade is my favourite of the three I’ve been playing with, definitely as personal choice. But all three of the shades are really impressive pigment and texture wise – I think Cyber Green would make a gorgeous smudged smokey eye and cyber pink is lovely for highlighting or day to day.
