Frost Bunny

Fenty Beauty Frost Bunny Metallic Eye + Lip Crayon Set ($39.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes three shades of “creamy, metallic” crayon-style product that can be used on the eyes and lips. The formula is supposed to have “insane glide” that is “creamy upon application” but sets. The brand says that they can be used as eyeliner, eyeshadow, lipstick, or lip liner. I found the performance to be underwhelming both on the eyes and lips, though on lips it was particularly disappointing. The best use for these were as eyeliners, though there are far better pencil eyeliners on the market.

The pencils feature a very waxy, thinner consistency that does tug somewhat (eyes and lips) and often requires multiple passes over curved areas–they’d swatch well enough on my arm but in practice, I had trouble getting even, opaque coverage whether I tried the formula as an eyeliner, eyeshadow, or lipstick. They were easiest to use on my lower lash line, as they only tugged a bit, but the coverage seemed to lift slightly as I tried to layer and even out the color or else it would pull away along any fine lines. However, if I tried to diffuse or blend out the line, product flaked off or lifted away randomly. While swatches were difficult to remove on my arm/hand, most shades disappeared within six hours on my waterline and were noticeably faded after eight hours on my lower lash line.

As an eyeshadow, they applied poorly with fingertips and a brush as the formula dries so quickly that most of the product remained on my fingertip or wouldn’t adhere to my skin (from the brush), so applying directly from the pencil was best, which resulted in decent coverage but was often patchy or uneven. If I attempted to go back over areas with the pencil, I couldn’t glide the pencil; I had pat and push it onto just the area or else it would lift away other areas. When I tried to diffuse the edges, whether I just used a fluffy brush or fingertips along the bare edge or if I tried to use a powder eyeshadow (say, in the crease) to blend the shimmer shades and a matte crease shade together, the cream eyeshadow lifted away and left behind bald patches. I reached the point where it was a game of applying and accepting that they’d never look great on my actual lids. They did have decent wear on my lids with about eight to nine hours without creasing but the color started to flake off.

As a lip product, the formula actually managed to get worse! They take some maneuvering to apply evenly, as the texture was thin and drier, and the pencil tugged a bit in order to get even coverage on my lips. The big issue was that I could not press my lips together, not even once, whether intentionally, accidentally, or while talking, or else the color would lift away noticeably. I tried leaving the color alone for a solid five minutes in case there was some “dry down” that I needed to wait for (nothing about the texture suggested that), but it didn’t help. The strange part was that it stayed on well with respect to drinking/light meals but if the product came in contact with itself, it gave up. I tried not to press my lips together, but inevitably, just talking proved enough to cause patchiness within an hour of wear that worsened over time. (Please reference Sunfrost, where I took a photo after gently pressing my lips together, not even rubbing, just a gentle press, and see how much lifting occurred–it continued to lift as long as I had it on.)

Rose Lamé (826)

Chanel Rose Lame (826) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a sparkling, light peach with subtle, pink undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. The consistency was lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness (when I touched it with my fingertip) that wasn’t too thick or too thin on my lid, so I had no trouble applying it with opaque color coverage in a single layer but it could easily be diffused and buffed out for a sheerer effect if desired. The eyeshadow stayed on well for almost 10 hours before creasing faintly, and there seemed to be just a smidgen of fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.14 oz. - $257.14 Per Ounce

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Heigh-Ho

Colour Pop Heigh-Ho Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a sparkling white with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, blue and violet sparkle. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but it was more of a brightening or layering shade–it was quite sparkly, so I didn’t notice the sheerness when used on the lid or inner tearduct. The texture was plush, lightly creamy, and noticeably sparkly (so it wasn’t perfectly smooth). It wore well for nine hours with very little fallout and no creasing or fading.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

So This is Love

Colour Pop So This is Love Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, lighter taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth lightly creamy texture that felt a bit wet to the touch but did not slide around on my skin. I didn’t have any trouble diffusing or blending out the edges. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Shadows and Brights

Laura Mercier Shadows and Brights Metallic Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection ($39.00 for 0.12 oz.) contains four, travel-sized jumbo eyeshadow pencils in plummy taupe, copper, dirty gold, and soft, rosy copper. All four shades had good pigmentation, long-wear, and were blendable on my skin. In the swatches, I showed them in one, fluid stroke as well as sheered out (as more of a “wash” of color). I love Laura Mercier’s holiday Caviar Eye Stick sets as they’re a good value and are usually of high quality, so it’s a nice one to see come around each year.

The Caviar Sticks retail for $29.00 and contain 0.05 oz. or $580.00/oz., so the set has a total value of $69.60.
