this is a beautiful, pigmented color & seems to be a fairly unique product w/ a lot of different uses. i decided to buy it bc i wanted a matte mint/seafoam green eyeshadow & couldn't find a good powder one (at least not in a cruelty-free brand). i also liked the idea of being able to use it on lips occasionally as a fun pop of color w/o having to buy a green lipstick i would rarely use. it could also make a good color corrector for redness when applied lightly, or an all over face paint for a witchy/maleficent halloween look.
to use as an eyeshadow, i lay down a thin coat over primer (i use udpp or tarte) & set w/ translucent powder. i sometimes go over it again for more saturation, but i've never needed more than 2 coats & i wouldn't build it up too much esp in the crease. side note: it pairs really well w/ sugarpill mochi in the crease to add dimension; that w/ black winged liner & an orangey-red lip is one of my fave combos. i've also used it on the waterline w/ a dark smoky eye in place of a white or fleshtone for a change.
if you're willing to work w/ cream products like this they can be really useful & versatile. i have ended up using it on lips & w/ a couple coats & blotting it lasted really well through a very sweaty party & was easy to touch up w/ fingers. i def recommend this shade for mint lovers.

I am certainly in love with this, mostly due to the fact that I adore mint green. I use this as a stripe of color above my normal black cat eye and it works nearly perfect as an eyeliner. It has an insane amount of pigment, so whether you use a little or a lot, you will definitely get mint green. It has a bit of a tendency to crease, so I would really suggest setting it with either a translucent powder or a mint eyeshadow if you intend to use it around any area that creases or moves a lot (namely the eye). Once you set it though, it isn't going anywhere. I believe that it is due to Bedaub's creaminess that it has a tendency to transfer/crease on its own, but that certainly adds to the ease of use as an eyeliner in my opinion. Price is a bit whack, roughly $27.00. But then again, how often do you see such a wonderful minty green cream?

Together with a grey eyelinder I used this all over my body to fake veins (for halloween). It looked very scary and the pigment stayed all day without fading after I use it as a eyebase and it works fine for that too. It's really easy to work with

The box states it is a "highly pigmented cream for use on the eyes, face, and body" . Light green is not a colour that I wear on my eyes so therefore I donít use this as an eyeshadow. However, it works great as a color corrector for redness! Although, I have read reviews for other shades of cream pigments stating that it creases on the lids. The lasting power on the face is great and does a great job of covering up. I highly recommend!!
