Pristine Eyeshadow, Cloudaine Elegant Lip Gloss
Kevyn Aucoin: The Prime Color Creme Eyeshadow
The Prime Color Creme Eye Shadow ($27.00) is an eyeshadow in a twist-up pen form. The eyeshadow itself has a cream consistency. It is true to its claims about creaseless-ness, as I found it didn’t crease after eight hours of wear, but the product itself is not my favorite. It can be difficult to blend the color out and apply from the get-go, and it isn’t the best base I’ve worked with either, because blendability is an issue. The shade I tried was Pristine, which is a soft, golden brown-champagne shade. This is something that can be worn alone on lids if desired, and if that’s the aim, this product meets it well.
- Product: 6/10
- Value: 6/10
- Ease of Use: 5/10
- Packaging: 6/10
Recommendation: Compact and travel-friendly, the Prime Color Creme Eyeshadows might be your new travel companion. They’re difficult to use, and they aren’t the easiest to blend, so for those two reasons, I won’t be buying any more shades in the future. I also find the price a bit steep for what you’re getting, which is just one more reason these aren’t up to my standards.
What’s your 10-minute makeup look?
In keeping up with the Only in a Woman’s World campaign, I recognize how many of us are busy bees and can’t always find the time to put together elaborate makeup looks. Sometimes we just need something that’s practical, quick, and still makes us look our best. I’m curious to hear what your quick and dirty out-the-door-in-ten-minutes-or-less look is!

Cloudaine Elegant Lip Gloss
Kevyn Aucoin: Elegant Lip Gloss
Cloudaine Elegant Lip Gloss ($27.00) is a potted lip gloss that goes on sheerly, but it does provide some color–it’s not really a lip balm, though it looks a bit like one. It has a glossy, lipgloss feel once you’ve broken through the top layer. It does come with a retractable lip brush, which makes the value go up a bit, since I do find the price tag a bit steep for this kind of a product. Cloudaine is a soft, sheer milky pink with multicolored shimmer and a fair amount of glossiness. It’s a very wearable shade–great for everyday. I’m, personally, not a big fan of potted lip balms or glosses, because it requires usage of a brush if you want to avoid bacteria and the ick-factor.
- Product: 8/10
- Value: 7/10
- Ease of Use: 7/10
- Packaging: 6/10
Recommendation: If you need a travel-friendly option of lip gloss, consider this solid form of lip gloss. It’s easy to take with you anywhere, and the included retractable brush makes application easy.

Do you think an eyeshadow base is necessary? Is it just extra? Do you always wear one?
Yes, I think they’re necessary. I only wear bases alone, but I’d never wear a regular eyeshadow alone, because it’d fade and crease in no time.
