This eyeshaow looks very shimmery but once applied on the eyelids, it gave a light sheen and the color is very pigmented so a little is enough. It is also best applied with ring finger as i have tried brush and sponge applicator but both tools turned the eyeshadow into specks.
It is supposed to stay crease proof, water proof and last 24 hours but I did once applied it without my eye primer and it creased when i came home after 6 hours but i have oily lids to begin with. But it lasted a looong 12 hours when i applied eye primer to it. Even my trusty Clio eyeliner didnt even survived that long hours. And i found myself reaching for it alot for its easy blending.
PS: Do not throw away the black lid as it will be useful to keep the eyeshadow compact. I am sure you dont want a nasty surprise when you bring it on your next travel.
