These are clearanced at Sephora now, for 8$. I got a few for a future giveaway, and one for myself.
The shade I kept is Silk. It’s a peachy-nude shade that works well as an all-over shadow color. All of the shades I’ve seen have a frosty, sparkly texture similar to some of Tarina Tarantino’s permanent line, and Urban Decay’s eyeshadows.
This is one of those products that I don’t have a WHOLE lot of use for….. I usually do very complex make up, and would find this too imprecise to do anything but a highlight. But it’s a really neat system, and I can see it being useful for a lot of people looking for a five-minute look. You don’t need brushes, you don’t need a lot of precision…. Just smudge it, and keep smudging to help blend it.
There’s a few shades for basic variants of smoky eyes-deep purple, deep green, deep brown, black… So really everything you need. For a beginning makeup user, or an experienced one just looking for quick makeup for work, this is well worth the money.
This is a loose eyeshadow, funneled through a spongey smudger tip, like what you would use to smudge eyeliner. It’s very soft, and can be useful.
The dispenser doesn’t seem to dispense a LOT of product, and you need to screw the cap back on to get it to dispense more, not just push the pen part back. That’s a bit odd, but not an issue.
The deeper colors would be gorgeous used over liner, to smudge and smoke it out in one easy step.
I believe these are being discontinued, hence the price. So if you want to try them, I’d recommend ordering them online from sephora, or dropping by your local store to have a look.
