I was looking to replace a discontinued Estee Lauder cream shadow that was my go-to eye shadow for years when I found this. I came across the RMS eye polish line after being introduced to their illuminator, which if you haven't heard about you should go check it out! (It can be easily layered and gives a look similar to celeb icons like Alicia Vikander). I approached the eye polishes with the same idea: that I would love them. But not so fast.
Solar seemed like it would match the cream shadow I had previously owned and it had natural ingredients, something that is great if the product actually works! But I have olive skin with a hint of a yellow undertone and this color ended up being too warm for an all-over eye lid look (It gave a little of an orange tone against my skin, too warm for my liking). I decided to keep it, however, because it worked really well in the crease and outer edges of my lids, worked well as a day to night look, and didn't have the warmth if used wisely.
For those worried about irritation or creasing:
Before I purchase any makeup products it normally takes a good amount of research for me to decide if it is the exact product I'm looking for (I've had negative experiences in the past both with irritation and poor product performance). This product caused zero irritation; compared with MAC, Smashbox, even Clinique products that have caused irritation. Even though this is touted as a natural line that has a large green-beauty following, rms products hold their own against luxury lines, IF you have the right skin for it. I personally have very dry skin; no oily T zone by the end of the day. RMS eye polishes are fairly thick and do seem to have an initial oily/paste-like texture but I preferred this because it was very moisturizing for my skin. However, those with oily skin or hooded eyes should be a little cautious: these would probably crease and not give the look you want.
Overall: I liked this product and though I wouldn't buy this color again, I'm giving the other colors like the cooler toned brown called Seduce a chance. A quick google search pulled up something interesting: Pharmaca is having a sale for October right now and you can pick them up for $22 (free shipping over $35) if you're tempted to buy! ;)
