Last month, I posted about this new product on the market that was really awesome, in the shade Edgy Emerald. After trying out that one and a few others, I knew I had to search through quite a few drugstores to complete my collection! After reading comments from all of you, I’ve been told not to get the purple shade (and haven’t!) because it’s the least awesome. Here are the rest of the shades I picked up, this is a super picture-heavy post! :)
Audacious Asphalt: Dark Gray shade with silver reflects. It looks almost a bit green in photos, but in person its a cool toned gray, although much lighter than what I associate the word “asphalt” with. This was probably the worst shade as far as smoothness with color payoff goes. It’s streaky, but if applied slowly and patted on instead of brushed on, i think it could work well as a very light smokey eye, or even better as a base for black. There are better options out there, though.
Bad to the Bronze: Gorgeous, shimmery golden bronze. Blends out and applies smoothly and is an instant eye-opener. This shade would be great for virtually any skin tone on days when you literally have 2 seconds to get out the door. Swipe on, blend out the edges, add mascara, and done!
Pomegranate Punk Muted Cranberry shade. This is an interesting one, as you don’t really see reds for the eyes come about much in drugstore lines (unless I’m missing out on something?) The shade is much lighter and sheerer than you would be lead to believe from the pot, but still an interesting, unique shade.
Tough As Taupe: Your run-of-the-mill, light taupe shade. I think the name of this one is funny, as this color doesn’t seem tough at all! :) It’s more satin than the rest, so verrrry easy to wear for almost anyone, and super work friendly. I can see this one being really popular.
Bold Gold: Leesha likey! Bright, beautiful shimmering gold. Smooth and opaque. If you’re not afraid to shine, check out this color. I think this would look awesome with a bright teal liner!
Tenacious Teal: Don’t you just want to swim in this shade?! It looks amazing in the pot. Unfortunately for me, it’s quite a bit sheerer when swatched. I imagine this is on purpose, as I don’t see many people who aren’t makeup enthusiasts running to put bright blue eyeshadow on. The shade is a bright green hued teal with lots of shimmer and isn’t overpowering on the lids. Love!
Fierce & Tangy: I love this shade. Bright, beautiful orange. It reminds me of the clementines in my fridge, the ones with the little mascot thats all smiley!
Fierce & Tangy is the only other satin shade (along with Tough as Taupe) and I think it works better that way. This shade is definitely a little out there, but I really love the fun vibe it brings.
Too Cool: White with a super shimmery reflects. This shade is sooo icy! I don’t love it on it’s own, but I think it’d work out nicely as an eyeshadow base. It’s probably the frostiest color (appropriately named too!) This shade, like Audacious Asphalt, is a bit trickier to get a smooth application with, but not too hard with a bit of effort.
These lasted on me until I took them off (16 hours later) with no eyeshadow primer underneath. They won’t crease and stay vibrant for hours and hours, just don’t use too much product (you don’t need to!) I really like these and totally recommend checking them out, especially if you like products like MAC Paint Pots, these are a much cheaper option!
Available for $6-8 at drugstores.
