The formulation is meant to “dry all the way down to a smudge proof end” that is not waterproof however “will final all day on the lids.” The model recommends working “one eye at a time” because the formulation “dr[ies] pretty shortly.” It is an extremely pigmented formulation in most cases, the place slightly dab is greater than sufficient to cowl the cell lid. I all the time discover squeezing out product onto the again of my hand or onto a steel palette is one of the best ways to get going with these.

It was not too long ago formulated to increase the shelf life, which went from six months to 12 months, however there have been modifications to the bottom formulation, which I discovered shortened the damage time for me overall–by an hour or two. Beforehand, they wore between eight and 10 hours on me with most shades on the longer finish of that vary.

With the up to date formulation, the damage was extra eight to 9 hours with an inclination to crease over fade, so if I utilized it to the internal tearduct or the forehead bone, the damage was extra like 9 hours and even ten hours, but when I wore the identical shade in my crease, it might have creasing by eight hours. In any other case, the formulation tended to use, mix, and work like the unique formula–I simply seen that the damage time was slightly lowered.

The feel was easy, like a liquid-cream hybrid because it wasn’t runny however it was extra spreadable than a cream eyeshadow you’d discover in a jar. The vast majority of shades utilized evenly to reveal pores and skin with little effort, and the perimeters remained blendable sufficient (even because it was principally dried down) to melt and fuse with different shades. They’re very light-weight and the vast majority of them sat nicely on my lids with out emphasizing strains or texture (typically a difficulty with liquid/cream, extra metallic merchandise).

It did not have that dry down that felt so set and locked in that in case you stored attempting to mix it out (after it was dry) you’d get flaking; these by no means flaked or lifted. Based mostly on previous experiences–in normal with cream eyeshadows–I like to recommend working together with your powder eyeshadows first (except you are utilizing it as a base), after which moving into with the cream eyeshadows and going again over any areas to additional mix if crucial. That being mentioned, I used to be in a position to layer powder eyeshadow over them with out them lifting or changing into patchy. They’re a few of the best cream eyeshadows I’ve labored with to include into multi-shade seems. The wear and tear various from eight to 10 hours on me earlier than there was slight fading or a little bit of creasing.

In case you’re somebody who tends to make use of their cream eyeshadows as sheer washes of colour, I believe this formulation is “too” pigmented and dries too shortly to make sheer software as easy as you’d need. In case you love the impact of and end of creamier, metallic eyeshadows and wish true, full protection software, these are value wanting into. I like to recommend squeezing out the smallest quantity of product on the again of your hand or onto a mixing palette, after which utilizing fingertips or a flat, artificial brush to use to the lid. I choose a brush because it offers extra working time than once I used my fingertips.
