Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to be a "shimmer-loaded and primer-infused eye shadow" that is "mistake-prooft" and can be applied with a "finger or a brush."

The opacity varied from shade to shade, and I found that most of them were better applied in thinner layers and built up if necessary as they dried down more evenly and quickly that way. The formula felt lightweight, more like a gel-cream with how much glide it had--a little airy and whipped as a result--that remained flexible as it dried down on my lid. They did not feel heavy or tight once dried down, which made them comfortable to wear over time, but they were fairly budge-resistant.

The dry down was fast, so it didn't settle into my fine lines or creases as it dried down, but I felt like I had a decent amount of time to apply, blend, and... Read More.

The dry down was fast, so it didn't settle into my fine lines or creases as it dried down, but I felt like I had a decent amount of time to apply, blend, and diffuse the product as long as I worked one eye at a time. Once the formula dried down, it was more locked on and felt a lot drier to the touch, so I would not recommend fussing with it much once it sets as it could lead to the product lifting away.

Most shades were opaque, while some were opaque but had a tendency to sheer to more semi-opaque coverage and had to be built up in places. They tended to wear between eight and eight and a half hours before creasing a bit on me. I had higher hopes for wear, as I'm a huge fan of the brand's 24HR primer, but they definitely started to crease on me at an average-length of time (powder eyeshadows tend to last between seven and eight hours on me). If I wore them as a base, they lasted better--10 hours or so--or if I wore them more sheered out, it added a half hour to an hour of better wear.
