Formula Overview

$8.50/0.1 oz. – $85.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “no fallout” and will not crease while “glid[ing] on effortlessly.” There did not seem to be a specific callout with respect to opacity, and the actual opacity ranged from sheer to more opaque with most being semi-sheer. The brand’s promotional swatches/demo images showed the shades as fully opaque in coverage, though.

The consistency was very watery initially; thin, fluid, and on the more watery side so that it was hard to apply the product evenly. I tried to use my fingertips but found that my fingertips seemed to absorb the formula and caused it to dry down faster, which turned it into a gummy consistency–this was even harder to manipulate and even out! I would recommend a larger, flat synthetic brush or the included doe-foot applicator.

I found the formula to be particularly difficult and inconsistent to work with, and I think it would be best for someone who would use the shades as a sheer wash of color and is not particularly concerned for a 100% perfect evenness or layered over another eyeshadow. They have some tremendous sparkle and shine, so I can see some people loving them for real-life use.

Once on, they were crease- and fade-resistant and did not have fallout for 10 hours, as they did fully dry down, but they easily removed with water.

Note: some shades contain plastic (PET) glitter.
