When I saw swatches of these, I immediately knew I had to have them! They looked SO pigmented & creamy. I was skeptical about what it did, the "no smudge" feature. I bought the green, blue, & purple shades. I used the blue shade all over my lid & added a wing with it for a bold look & let it dry down which took about a full minute to dry completely. Let me first say that a little goes a LONG way, I mean a LOOOONG way. You are definitely getting a good quality product for the right price. It doesn't budge when you rub!
I purchased this product in the shade Silent Disco, which is a really cool and pretty shimmer-y purple brown. Although it is definitely different to use your fingers to apply eye shadow, this goes on super smooth and you can build up color for more intensity. The best part? It literally doesn't move ALL DAY. Obsessed!
I cannot stress how awesome this product is for anyone - although especially people who like low-maintenance makeup. At first, I was a little worried that the tube wouldn't last me too long since it's a cream and I might use it all, but the tiniest dot goes a really long way. Even if you only use a little, the color payoff is phenomenal. Plus, it's going to stay all day. It's not sticky or anything and doesn't fade off. I got Mermaid Parade and the color is very beautiful. Definitely going in my drawer of favorite products.
I'm a complete makeup junkie. I'll spend $50 on nail polish & completely justify the need for that specific Pantone seasonal shade...but this eye pigment?!??? Wow. I'm still ticked I wasted money/points on it.
It goes on with a crepe look, which is unflattering. If you try to blend, it peels off in chunks. If you try & add more, it won't build. If you take it ALL off & start over & use a brush...same thing happens. Save your $$.
Too glittery for everyday
I was looking for a low-maintenance replacement for my eyeshadow stick when it ran low and decided to try this cream. I ordered the Taupe shade and was disappointed by how much more gray than coppery the color was. That being said, I think I could deal with the color if it weren't so glittery!! Much too much for an everyday work look. Will take quite a while for me to use this up...
