I bought this on a whim, it looked pretty in the display, and looked great in the package. I didn't have any idea what I'd actually use it for though. As it turns out, you can use it for so many things, to highlight the inner corner of your eyes, highlight your browbone, as a base for shadow, highlight for shadow...and who knows maybe it has more applications. I have never used it without a primer (except for brow bone area), so I can't attest to it's longevity on a bare eyelid. Nonetheless, it is the ultimate multi-tasker and could be considered a staple item.
I do not have to use this product with a primer and it last all day. It applies very creamy and smooth, but once it sets it does not budge.
This is probably my favorite cosmetic in my makeup bag and I imagine I will be buying it for years to come. I use it to highlight the inner corner of my eye and on my water line and the effect is fantastic. The color is sort of a pinky champagne which works great with my cool skintone. This is a great product to create a naked-but-not-really-naked eye look to wear with dark fall lips colors.
I love this product! I was missing a pretty inner corner and base color because I ran out of my favorite. I bought this because of the really awesome reviews, and I'm so glad! It's such a beautiful shimmery, pinky brown color. The consistency is perfectly smooth and creamy, and it lasts all day. By all day, I mean from 8AM to 11PM, it's crazy! I use it everyday now:) However, I wish it was retractable because I think it'll become a bit unhygienic after a while..but who cares, it's beautiful!
This is an amazing jumbo shadow pencil that glides easily over the lids and offers great pigmentation and super long lasting color. It is much creamier than any of the NYX jumbo pencils that I have tried. I haven't tried UD's jumbo pencil in Sin but as far as the color goes, I agree that it is great dupe for the powder version of Sin. A great pinky champagne shade that you can use on its own or as a base. I wish this product was more talked about/hyped up because its fantastic!!
I wouldn't call myself an eyeliner junkie, but this is the longest lasting, most budge-proof liner I've ever come across...! When I first tested it out on my hand, it was almost like superglued on, but it didn't feel dry, or made the skin tight - it is very comfortable to wear, even on my waterline.
The colour is good - like a light champagne-pinkish colour. Very close to the colour of my water line, which is quite pale, so this would probably be good for those that tend to get pink on their water line, but want to look very natural. It's too dark if you actually want to make your waterline light. Good colour to use on the waterline, right under your lower lash line, in the corner of the eyes and under the brow bone. It is slightly shimmery, but the shimmers are tiny and give a metallic effect. It's such a good, classy look!
I wouldn't use it all over my lid because it sets very fast - I just don't manage to blend it out, but it's a great colour for those that like to use highlighters on the eyes. I don't think I would like to recommend it as a highlighter for the face. It would give an amazing effect, but because it sets so quickly, I just don't know if anyone would actually manage to blend it out properly.
I really love this product. The color is pretty and neutral, so it's a great base for any color eyeshadow. It goes great under the Sin eyeshadow from my Naked Palette. It lasts all throughout the day and even longer when I wear a primer! I'm definitely going to have to try other colors in the line.
great product! i use this as my primer and base, and i never have problems with creasing. i usually put it in the middle of my lid then smudge it with my finger so the color is sheer. i've been able to get at least 8 hours worth of wear with no creasing. it's really impressive for a drugstore brand. i would fork out over $20 for this, so it's definitely a steal for under $10.
As everyone else has said, this pencil is an exact dupe for Urban Decay's Sin and is similar to NYX's jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Yogurt. They are a pinky champagne color but isn't as pink on my eye. (I am NC32 very warm yellow toned, asian). Looks great in the inner corners and in the waterline! The staying power is fantastic. I'm in love with this pencil! HG highlight
These shadow eyez are my new HG! I bought these not expecting much, but when I got home and swatched them on my hand I was completely amazed! They set quickly and DO NOT BUDGE at all! So glad I have finally found something that can hold up on my oily lids. These can be worn alone but I prefer a primer underneath them for longer wear. Champagne Toast shows up as a warm, pink/ coppery color on my lids- reminds me of Urban Decay's sin. My only complaint is that you have to sharpen it but for the price I really can't complain. The product itself is very creamy and pigmented upon application as well. Will definitely continue to repurchase!
This is the most gorgeous shade of champagne perfect for inner/outer highlight eye color.
Wonderful as an all over wash of color.
Glides on like no other
I bought these at my local drugstore after reading reviews on mua.
I picked up champagne toast and winter white.
