Rose gold is very light, pretty much just gives your eyelids a golden shimmer. Exquisite garnet is a light shimmery pink that looks really nice. Luminous crystal is purely all sparkles. It's kind of loud but still pretty. Wicked onyx was my least favorite. I don't like the color or how it looks on my skin. I wouldn't recommend it for a smoky eye either. Overall, very nice for the price. Love the brand. Only gave it four stars because onyx was disappointing. If you plan on wearing it the entire day you might have to reapply it two or three times.
