Useful as both an eye shadow base and highlighter for under the brow bone. PROS: -- Decent primer; eye shadows applied over it pop with color -- Has multiple uses -- Cheap CONS: -- Creases -- Not the easiest to apply; you can't just apply it straight from the pencil without doing some work to fix it up -- Difficult to sharpen and you lose product when you do. -- Gets very waxy in the heat.
My favorite dupe for upscale liners. Easy to blend when you put it on, but once it dries, it stays put all day and night. PROS: -- Good quality -- Blendable until it dries -- Stays put all day CONS: -- Terrible on the waterline; it makes my eyes irritated
BOTTOM LINE: Try before you buy! It's a cult classic for a reason, but is not right for everyone. PROS: -- Provides a luminous flush of pink with a hint of peachy-golden sheen -- Pigmented -- Buildable; easy to create the look you want -- Good quality, smooth, and applies evenly CONS: -- If you want a matte blush, this is NOT it. There is definite sparkle/sheen. -- The sheen/sparkle can emphasize pores and other skin imperfections.
