Lethal Cosmetics Cryptic is a moderately warm-toned, light green with a metallic finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.06 oz.
Cryptic is a brighter, light lime-green with moderate, warm undertones and warmer golden sparkle. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a moderately dense, lightly creamy texture. It applied better to bare skin than it seemed it would when swatched (looked like fallout was going to be an issue), but it went on evenly and smoothly. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Designed for smooth application, amazing pigmentation and easy blendability, our signature eyeshadow formula is as impressive as it is dependable. No creasing, no fading. Wear your most beautiful creations all day and never worry about touch ups. Matts - If you are using an eyeshadow base, we recommend you set it first. Especially before applying deeper shades, give them a quick swatch to familiarize yourself with the pigmentation. Our highly pigmented shadows don't have to be swirled. Dipping your brush once will pick up plenty of pigment. Use a blending or shader brush for best results. Metallics - Apply with a dense brush or your finger. Our metallic shadows perform great when used dry, but spraying your brush with setting spray can further enhance the shine. Avoid getting moisture into your eyeshadow pan.
