I am FOREVER on the hunt for a cream eyeshadow that stays put all day on my ridiculously oily eyelids. Sometimes it feels like EVERY FREAKIN’ DAY.
Well not today son! I think I finally found something that lasts!
Avon Extra Lasting Creamy Eye Shadow Ink in Infinite Teal and Gold Gleam ($9 each) are crease-proof, sweat-proof and waterproof too. They were like IRON, even on my oilier than oily eyelids. There are 4 other shades, including one called Totally Taupe, and oh yeah! It’ll be mine hahaha!
They blend fairly easily, although they do set rather quickly. After testing and trying so many cream eyeshadow formulas, I think that’s the key to longevity on oiler lids like mine. The faster they set, the better they last. And yeah, it’s a bit of a drawback when it comes to blending, but I’m willing to sacrifice blend time for longevity. You just gotta learn to move fast when ya’ blend! And that? I can do. I got the blending reflexes of a…what moves fast? Cat? Jackrabbit? Ostrich? :D:D One of those I guess, or whatever else that can MOOOOOVE baby! Take a looksy!
Simple and not all that fancy, yet pretty hey?
Not bad! I think the formula is pretty great, because they last all day on me. And since hardly anything does lately…SIGH… I’m giving these a huge thumbs up! I’ve been really looking hard at my makeup and taking note of products that last really well on my cursed lids for our huge road trip in August when we take Marky to college. We’ll be away for at least 3 weeks, so only products that last all day will be coming with me on the trip. These Avon Extra Lasting Creamy Eye Shadow Ink in Infinite Teal and Gold Gleam have made the cut! You can order them, plus the other 4 shades right now from your local Avon Rep, or online at www.avon.ca!
What’s YOUR favourite long lasting, bullet-proof cream eyeshadow? Please fill me in, as I’m really trying to make a list of what to pack for our trip! I know…even though it’s still 2.5 months away, I’m already thinking about what makeup to bring LOL. #onceamakeupjunkieALWAYSamakeupjunkie
