A Cosmic Explosion of Sparkle

Estee Lauder Cosmic Shadow Paint ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm, reddened copper brown with pink and bronze sparkle. MAC Ever Elegant is slightly less red-toned and is a powder product. Estee Lauder Violet Underground #2 is very similar in color but has no sparkle. Tom Ford Illicit is less red-toned. Make Up For Ever #14 is browner.

This is one of the sparkly shades from the launch, so the texture is a bit different. It doesn’t, initially, feel any different; as it is still rather creamy and thin, but it dries down to a slightly gritty finish. It doesn’t apply as evenly as the other shades; there’s a noticeable texture and unevenness on the lid. The worst, though, was the continual fall out over the twelve-hours that I tested Cosmic for! The color didn’t crease, but it did seem a little faded and had definite fall out issues.  It has a really lovely sparkling finish, but that pretty finish is the problem, as it makes yields uneven color payoff and tons of fall out!

“C” stands for CHANEL Try their cream shadow in Ebloi, not an exact dupe but a similar hue. Without fallout or creasing. It’s fabulous….. a true sparkly, sophisticated shade.

I’ve been wearing this color all day over Soft Ochre as a base. I used a Sephora Cream Eye Shadow brush to apply. The color went on like a dream. Hasn’t creased, no fall out….absolutely love this color and formula….How strange that our results were so different.
