My take on this:
I bought this for this very shade as i am a big fan of Orange shades. This is my second attempt at cream eye shadows. The first one with e.l.f had been very disappointing and had put me off cream ones. But hearing all the raving reviews and looking at this awesome shade i decide indulge myself and boy i'm not disappointed.
As its a cream eye shadow, the texture is really creamy and allows me to blend it really well. I got an Maybelline eye shadow brush on offer along with this but i prefer to use my fingers instead. After using the brush, i found it difficult to blend and felt it to be streaky. Perhaps with a better brush this wouldn't happen. Anyway i prefer to use my fingers for now.
Like i said, it is easy to blend, but i leave it for long without blending it becomes cake-y and then blending becomes very difficult. So make sure that you blend them well as soon as you put them on the lids. The eye shadow looks very pigmented in the pot, but it ain't so when applied. Though i am happy with this shade and the coverage it provides, i wish it had more depth to this shade. To get more depth or a punch, i simply use this one as a base and top them off with the orange shade eye shadow that i have. It works great as it is and can also be used as a base to brighten the color.
What i love most about these babies is that they last really long. Never mind the eye lid primer, even without them they last a good 5 hours. Ain't that super!!! And the next best part is that it doesn't crease for a good deal of time too. And come from is -Oily Lids...that would be me, is a great thing. This eye shadow feels so light on the lids. With the e.l.f ones, i could feel it on my lids, not that it was uncomfortable but i felt it being there. At times i almost forgot that i was wearing them and rubbed my eyes (I have this nasty habit of rubbing my eyes and wiping away my eye makeup).
The only other down side is that after couple of hours i feel that the eye shadow becoming powdery and it gets in to my eyes. I guess the eye shadow does dry out after some time. Since this happens only after a decent 5-6 hours i'm okay with it.
There is more shades in this collection that i would love to try, like Pomegrante Punk, Tenacious Teal and Edgy Emerald, Bold Gold.
Easy on the pocket:
Variety of shades available.
Last really long.
Easy to blend
Feels light and comfortable
Need to blend quickly before it cakes up.
Become powdery after 6 hours and irritates the eye.
Wish it was little bit more pigmented. Not exactly a 'Con' but just saying...
Good Shades, Decent coverage, Lasts longs. There is nothing thats gonna stop me from getting more of these puppies
