Sonia Rykiel Rayures Rykiel N Striped Eyeshadow: I am NOT impressed

I normally steer clear of Sonia Rykiel makeup. I tried many items and most of them failed. I don't like the eyeshadows, blush, cream liners, jelly eyeshadows and lipglosses (and maybe some more items that don't come to my mind right now).
The items I like are the lipsticks and cream shadow duos but away from those the overall line quality is just mediocre considering the high pricetags.

And yet again I ended up with one of the new Rayures Rykiel N Striped Eyeshadow in 02... I just couldn't resist when I saw it offered for US$19.99 shipped and the color combination looked so pretty.

The striped shadow trio is tiny, just the size of a SR eyeshadow single. The individual stripes are wide enough to pick up the colors easily with a normal brush so you won't suffer like with Kate's Deep Eyes N =X

The shadows are a bit rough and sheer.
The pale yellow and white colors are a bit sparklier and sheer whereas the teal color (it looks more teal when applied than aqua like in the pan) has decent color pay-off and a satiny finish. My problem is that the shadows get dull and fade and the teal color gets messy and turns more green after some time wearing it. I always use a good primer and don't encounter this problem with other shadows so I blame it on the SR trio.

It's not the worst shadow trio and maybe I can make it work better.
I wouldn't have put it in my "I am not impressed"-category if it were a cheap brand but for the price it sells it has to perform well as it's a high-end brand. But again this product is just mediocre!
