The formulation is a cream product that’s speculated to be “extremely pigmented,” “smudge proof,” “waterproof, and “speedy drying.” They’re multi-purpose merchandise that can be utilized on the eyes, lips, and cheeks (although word: the Foil end consists of plastic, or PET, glitter, which is technically not thought-about eye protected through FDA).
The important thing takeaway with this formulation is that they actually do imply “speedy drying” — it’s each a professional and a con, however it’s important to work shortly and effectively when utilizing this product on the pores and skin the place one may need to diffuse, unfold, or mix out edges. Whereas the model is consumer-friendly, this product is especially favored by make-up artists, and I did really feel like there was a studying curve with them.
Some shades dry a little bit quicker than others, and as soon as they dry down, they’re fairly smudge proof as marketed, so they do not need to be moved. Makes an attempt to mix them out after they set typically resulted within the product lifting off the pores and skin. They’re additionally, sometimes, fairly pigmented, so one ought to train warning when making use of to cheeks initially. I discovered that among the extra sparkly shades had been sheerer.
The consistency was skinny, light-weight, and a runnier cream, which meant that it was straightforward to squeeze out extra product than desired from the tube for the uninitiated. After a couple of makes use of, I used to be capable of dial within the strain I wanted to squeeze out the product and was persistently capable of get what I wanted from there.
Relying on the depth of the shade relative to your pores and skin tone and whether or not you needed a sheerer or extra opaque finish end result, fingertips or artificial brushes could be the first instruments. I discovered that I typically most well-liked to place a little bit product on the again of my hand after which used both my fingertips (for extra all-over utility) or a brush (for extra exact or opaque utility). For precision and ease of use (as my fingertips are a little bit giant in comparison with my eye dimension), I appreciated fluffy, artificial brushes to diffuse the sides or sheer out the product.
Among the Foil shades particularly tended to a little bit thicker and tackier when utilized, and I wasn’t at all times capable of maneuver them evenly. They appeared to work higher as an accent, like on the inside tear duct or on the center of the lid.
Nearly all of shades had been very pigmented, pretty blendable, and long-wearing, whereas most shades lasted 10 hours with out fading, creasing, or flaking. I did really feel like my eyelids obtained a little bit drier from sporting a number of of those shades for a number of days in a row.
They utilized lots higher to lips than I anticipated, as I typically discover that multi-purpose merchandise do properly on one or two areas however not often all of them. The product utilized properly with a fingertip or a lip brush, although for pace, I appreciated utilizing a fingertip. Nearly all of the shades utilized evenly, did not emphasize my lip texture/lip strains, and had been snug sufficient to put on.
The dry down was noticeable, however the product had mild tackiness, although I did not have points with the colour carry up. Regardless of having extra of a liquid lipstick type of dry down, it nonetheless felt lighter-weight and was versatile, which is what made it extra snug to put on. I did not see marks left on my glass, and so they simply lasted by a cup of espresso. Most shades appeared to put on for six hours or longer on me.
The extra sparkly shades with much less opacity tended to be least even and felt tackier, and if I pressed and rubbed my lips collectively, it appeared like some product moved a bit.
As cheek utility is usually sheerer, relatively than full protection, making use of the extra pigmented shades to cheeks took some getting used it as one has to work shortly and begin with method lower than you want. I most well-liked utilizing extra feathery, duo-fiber brushes for actually vivid shades to diffuse and apply product on cheeks higher, however fingertips labored for getting an preliminary placement after which a clear brush was beautiful for the mixing portion.
The wear and tear time on cheeks was comparable with eyes (so round 10 hours of excellent put on).
Editor’s word: I do not know why I did not make this connection beforehand (in some unspecified time in the future, I used to be conscious they had been multi-use), as I purchased these as cream eyeshadows for assessment. If I had to return and do swatches of every shade on cheeks and lips, I would by no means, ever assessment (primarily based on the amount of different merchandise I’ve within the queue), so whereas I examined every shade for utility, pigmentation, longevity, and so forth. for all three functions, you’ll solely discover a pores and skin swatch.
