i got this on whim when i went to return tropic glaze gloss but they were out of the clear gloss i wanted so i picked this up instead. anyway, im so glad i did. at first i thought it looked questionable like it would smear smudge and budge all day long but after using it all over my lid as a base to hold a dark teal shadow and later a fuschia pigment i was pleasantly surprised at its amazing staying power. it didnt crease one bit! i wore it from 9 am until using my makeup remover at 9pm. i like it better than the mac sharkskin shadestick that i had before. easy to use, cheap & good quality. im going to try other shades!
