The packaging is similar to Chanel's Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadows, with a square glass tube that's a little bit longer.
The 3 shades offered are Bahia, Havana, and Maya.
Each of the eyeshadows come with a toe tip applicator. What's special about these how well the colors apply using the applicator. It is not a fluid, but rather a creamy eyeshadow that is easy to blend. I find that using the doe tip applicator is the best method to deposit colors on the eyelids.
I had a bit of a tough time capturing the multi-color shimmers in these eyeshadows. They are very pretty and much more vibrant in person.
Bahia is a baby pink with silver shimmer
Havana is a chameleon. In certain angles, it looks like an olive shade but in others, it looks like taupe. This is a really unique shade with multi-color shimmers (green, gold, pink).
Maya is a dark bronze with multi-color shimmers. This was my favorite shade out of the 3.

These were taken in direct sunlight so you can see some of the shimmer in each shade.
Photo taken with flash with indoor lighting. It's interesting how the shimmers show up much better when the photo is blurred. I use the doe tip applicator to lightly press the colors onto my lids. If you want to blend, I recommend doing it quickly because these are not fluids, so they dry pretty fast. The colors may look shimmery in the swatch but are very soft and subtle once applied on the eyes. There's also no shimmer fallout for those who are worried about dealing with a glittery mess.
Overall, I have a hard time saying which is truly the stars in Guerlain's Inca Collection. I like all of the pieces because they're all unique. I like these cream eyeshadows quite a bit because they are richly pigmented, blendable, and don't budge at all once set. These colors make a beautiful base combined with the eyeshadow palette reviewed earlier. You can also use these by themselves on the lid as a single shade. The shimmers in each cream shadow gives them an extra oomph on the lids. I prefer these over Chanel's Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadows because of staying power.
Bottom line: If you're on a budget, pick up at least one of these shades. My top recommendation is Maya, the deep bronze with shimmer color. If you're not on a budget, pick up all three or at least Maya and Havana. I highly recommend checking these out in person. They are gorgeous and well worth the money.
I've also reviewed Terra Indigo 4 Shadow Palette here in case you've missed it.
