  • The shade green looks more like a teal green is absolutely gorgeous. I love the metallic sheen. It's the perfect pop of color to the eyes.
  • I like the thin foam tip applicator, but wish it was flexible. It's stiff and a bit difficult to apply. 
  • The formula is thin. It took me 2-3 coats to get an opaque color. But it dries fairly quick so I don't mind.
  • The staying power is good. It doesn't fade or smudge. Use a good oil base waterproof makeup remover to take it off.

Here's what it looks on my eyes. It took 2-3 applications to get the desired opacity. It doesn't smudge, budge and last for a long time.

For the affordable price, it's a great product! It requires a little bit of patience in application, but the gorgeous, vibrant color and staying power are worth it!  Available in 12 metallic shades and 2 matte colors. 


  1. WOWIE! The color of this looks amazing! I totally would wear this like that!

  2. That is a beautiful green! I wouldn't mind a couple of layers to achieve that color - it's seriously beautiful!

    Great review and look Becky!
