Yep, I couldn't resist them.
I couldn't decide between the purple, the sagey or the peachy one so I had to go for all of them!
They come in a box like this:
And these is what they look like in the pots from their bottoms:
And without their tops. They come in a like a dome shape with the most of the product in the centre.
And hand swatches:
Each one of them come with a cute (and rather useless) applicator like this one:
My thoughts and review:
The texture of these cream shadows is strage in an interesting way.
It feels to the touch like a cream, it smells strange (but you won't smell it once on your eyes- it was just me sticking my nose there) but it applies like a powder eyeshadow.
I find that the harder and smaller the brush the better. With a very soft brush you won't be able to pick up enough product. With your fingers you will probably pick up too much.
The little brush that they provide is not very good unfortunately. They say that these eyeshadows can be used as liners. I wound't to be honest. They are so packed with glitter and reflects that a bit of that in your eyes and you will remember Coco Chanel for the rest of the day!
I use contact lenses everyday and I love glitter. I never complain and I'm a tough one when it comes to things stuck in my eyes but I did feel some chunkiness getting into my eyes and contacts. This won't put me off from using them anyway. But be aware these shadows are packed with shimmer, glitter and reflects.
Long lasting? Yes, they are especially with a primer underneath.
Easy to blend? Yes, this is one of their main features. They are a dream to blend.
Expensive? Yes. They were about £22.50 each and they are LE.
Do I regret the purchase? No way. Love them. Especially for night use.
I hope this was useful.
Were you tempted too with these?
Which one did you go for?
Any recommended combos?
