Such a deal for these. It's everything anyone would want in a cream shadow! Stay all day with no crease, fantastic color payoff, a little goes a long way, and so versatile! They stay on after I swim as well! In fact, it's sometimes hard to get it off! I love the new limited edition shadows that are out now, I've bought 2 of them! Snag them before they're gone for sure. Definitely recommend using with a brush though, my fingers just can't get the job done. It's so much easier with a brush. Love love love!
I love my color tattoo!!! I got it in the shade Audacious Asphalt, which is a really nice base for my darker makeup looks. I typically use my fingers to put it on, because I find it quite difficult to use a brush. Perfect for a smoky eye look, and an overall great product! I got mine at Target. ANd it is very long lasting, and I am in love with the packaging! Audacious Asphalt does have some shimmer in it.
I have not used Audacious Asphalt as a eyeshadow alone I usually use this product as a base. I apply some sort of primer then the color tattoo then whatever eye shadow I plan on wearing for that day. This particular color has a lot of pigmenation it goes on smooth and it does has a lot of tiny shimmer to it. When applying this product i always use my finger. I first warm the product up rubbing my finger around in it then I apply for a more smoother application.
LOOK OUT NYX, YOUR PENCILS MIGHT RANK 2ND SOON!
I Honestly didn't think these were going to be any good. The skeptic in me was totally screaming DON'T DO IT! BUT, i watched Leesha (xsparkage) new tutorial using fierce & tangy and was blow away!! I ran to my local walgreens & purchased 3 that they had then to my local target for the only 2 they had! These average for $6.00 which is a killer steal one you realize what the quality & how better off they are compared to NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencils & MACS Paint pots. Here's why:
-Cute & Sassy Names, Glass screw top jars with logo one both sides, easy for makeup bag or traveling -No smell, VERY Creamy product! Which a little goes a long way here -Very bendable & Buildable color for all day wearing eyeshadow or eyeshadow base. I haven't worn mine for 24 hours but they lasted the 12 hours i had at work just fine! -Amazing pigmentation, these are high shine color packed shadows with one swipe! -Lasts LONGER than NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencils & DO NOT Crease on you -I personally always throw on a eyeshadow base under EVERYTHING, so i recommend you do this with these too because they are a cream base product. -These are a great dupe for MAC Paint Pots as well especially when they come out with matte ones (because we all know that's next!) -Located at all drugstores or anywhere maybelline is sold & online
Seriously love these and i cannot believe i doubted these so hardcore at first. I actually prefer these over the NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencils (although they have more colors) But i know this will not be our only selection ladies! I own Fierce & tangy, Bad to the Bronze, Pomegranate Punk (not pink), Too cool & Audacious Asphalt. I adore all of them and will be purchasing more once they become in stock again! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU RUN (NOT WALK) TO YOUR LOCAL STORE AND PICK THESE BABIES UP! They are worth every penny & will be the next "Guru" Hot ticket item for all youtube videos, I guarantee it!
Wasn't what I expected
When I first saw the ads in the stores for this I was so excited. From the pictures in the ads the shadow looked as if it had a souffle texture. Whenever I bought audacious asphalt and pomegranate punk I was severely disappointed. The texture feels like a dried up cream eyeshadow. It claims to be able to be applied flawlessly with your finger but for me that wasn't true. I had to use a brush and blend like crazy. The color audacious asphalt is gorgeous though. It's a blue-gray color with lots of silver sparkle. Pomegranate punk on the other hand is supposed to be a deep red but whenever I apply to my eyes it's a brownish color with silver sparkle. It's still pretty but not what I was expecting. For the wear time it lasted quite a while. My lids get a little oily in the summer so it hasn't worn as long as I think it will in the winter. Since my lids are a little more oily than normal it did crease after about 4 hours. Everytime I've used these it was over a primer.
