Yesterday I was so thrilled and convinced that I had stumbled upon the holy grail of makeup. I am reluctant to admit that unfortunately this isn't the case. The Almond Cream Shadow Eyez I used in yesterday's look basically is comparable to Milk by NYX. I would be interested to know other's experiences with it. After about 6 hours I noticed slight creasing which grew progressively worse.
Now with this being said I haven't completely written them off yet. I feel that they haven't been given a fair chance yet. One crucial tidbit to remember with any primer or base is that quantity is key. This means that less is more :) You can use a good primer or base and accidentally use too much product which can result in creasing. It is always best to start out with a little and go from there based on the results. In addition you want to make sure that the product is completely blended.
For today's Face of the Day I used the following:
Runway Eyes Eyeshadow Palette in 19 Naturally Chic
Shadow Eyez in 12 Golden Bronze
Brow Bone & Inner Corner - Shimmery Champagne (1st shade in palette)
Lid - Shadow Eyez in Golden Bronze (used as a base) & Shimmery Golden Bronze (6th shade in palette)
Crease - Light Matte Brown (3rd shade in palette)
Under the Lid - Shadow Eyez in Golden Bronze & Shimmery Golden Bronze above to set it
What has your experience been with Shadow Eyez?
