I think this product looks so cute, so I was hoping it would work really well. The idea is great, a portable pencil that works as an eyeshadow! I have had portable pencils before, and some have worked great. These are such cute colours, so I wanted it to work.
Having said that, these eyeshadows are terrible. These cream shadows go on smoothly, and the colours are very nice once they apply to the lid. But... and here's the part that sucks, it doesn't last, it just disappears off your lids after a while, or just creases REALLY badly. And I'm not saying that this happens within the day, it happens within the hour pretty much. It's terrible.
I really wanted to like this. :(
This is such a cute product that travels really well. But the quality is lacking. It is a cream shadow in the form of a pencil. I have major issues with cream shadows of all sorts but this looked so pretty and had some great reviews so I thought I'd give it a shot.
The color is really pretty; it's a sheer bronzy shade of brown. It applies beautifully, with no tugging or pulling and you get plenty of color pay-off without having to go over any area more than once. But it just doesn't last. I first tried it without a primer, just to see how it held up on it's own. It was creased within five minutes, and faded within the hour. So I tried again with my trusty primer, with only slightly better results. It still creased in about 15 minutes and had faded and worn off in about two and a half hours. It rubs off really easily if you happen to rub at your eyes too.
Such a cute product and a great idea, but the staying power just isn't there. Maybe someone who usually has pretty good results from cream shadows would have better results from it, but if you're like me and have never been able to get cream shadows to work for you then you will want to save your money and pass on this one.
