Great on the go product. Small tube that you can pop into your purse. It doesn't melt off in the summer heat. It is super easy to apply and a small amount does the trick. It is expensive compared to drug store buys. I use this daily and love it!

i got this as a present for christmas. i tried it one saturday afternoon and it was absolutely horrible! i squirted some on my finger, and tried to apply it to my eyelid. i had no problem with creasing or it taking long to dry. the problem was the color (hence the 1 star). it had absolutely no color, it was just a layer of sparkle on my eyelid (that did NOT come off with makeup remover, no matterhow much i tried). when i applied more to try to take away some of the sparkle, it just looked like i had a layer of chalk on my eyelid. i could not get it sheer enough to not look like chalk without it looking like little kid glitter. i just cannot figure this product out.

This shadow does crease a bit, but it gives a very nice sheer natural look to my lids. I don't pack on the e/s when I'm wearing this b/c it will start to look cakey and crease a lot. I keep it simple when I'm using this since I know it can't handle holding on to more than two e/s layered on top. I have the older formulation, the one with Signature on the tube. I'm not sure if I will buy this again. If I do, it will be on ebay.

I bought this eyeshadow to wear at my wedding (it looked pretty darn good, I must say), and I love the natural look. I wanted everything on my face that day to enhance my face, and not cover it up, and I got exactly what I wanted from this eyeshadow. It looks very natural, and just gives your eyes a little shimmery "pop" that sets you apart. I tend to wear this in the summer time though, since it's a much lighter cover than having to wear primer and then a powder shadow. My one complaint would be that, unless you put on a very thin layer, it does crease during a long day. I have not yet tried this with primer, but may in the future to see what happens. But, if you want a natural shimmer that's super easy to apply, buy some of this stuff.

I love this product. This is something I intend to always have in my makeup kit. I use it as a base when I want to make my matte shadows more shimmery, I will use it as a brow highlighter and I will use it on my inner eyes to brighten them. There are so many uses for this. Excellent product.

I've gone through a couple of tubes of the vanilla eyesicles as well as the island bronze, and I do like these products a lot.
The vanilla is a sheer pinkish/white color that I usually use for highlighting. It's really easy to apply - I squirt a small amount of product onto my forefinger and rub it together with my other forefinger to get an even amount of product for each eye. I then swipe on my eyelids and blend and it's that simple!
I do find I have trouble with this creasing on me...Even when I use a primer or an eyeshadow base, which is why I take off one star. Other than that, the price is pretty reasonable as one tube lasts for awhile and the packaging is sanitary! Would purchase again - a great eyecolor when you're on the go :)

This makes a great primer and highlighter.
Applies easily with brush or finger, dries to a nice finish and makes a great base for powdered eyeshadow.
Doesn't really add any colour to your lids but has a nice pearl sheen which looks great along the brow bone.
I found this helped to keep my eyeshadow in place all day and there was no creasing.

This cream shadow was one of the worst I have tried. It creased horribly on my eyelids, even though I used only the tiniest dab possible. I had to apply several layers to see even the tiniest hint of shimmer, but each layer creased so....it wasn't really worth it! I tried this product with one of MK's new summer shadows on top, and the eyesicles did absolutely nothing to enhance the color or lasting power of the shadow. I'm glad I just tested this out at a MK party and did not actually purchase!

Looks like a white/off white cream eyeshadow. This product is pearly, doesn't really show up as an eyeshadow though. Would work well as a base if it didn't crease so much though! You have to dry it with your eyes closed for a while before you can go back to blinking again, and you need to have a lot of control in order to put the right amount of product on your eyelid, or else it will crease like crazy.
The price is not too bad, (13.00 CAN) cheaper than clinique, but i would not purchase this (i got a demo).
Being in high school, i don't have a long time to get ready in the morning and i can't just stand around with my eyes closed for a few minutes. It is also not worth it since it can't really be used as a quick primer nor does it colour show up.
It is easy to apply, though, and it lasts long enough... The stuff that doesnt gather in the crease, anyways.
If you really want to try an eyesicle, i'd go with the bronze colour... this one is just not worth it for me.
2 lippies for the product lasting long enough, smooth product, tube for easy application. shame about the cons though...

I love this but it has been dicontinued. It makes a GREAT eye primer. A small amount goes a long way-too bad it is not available any more.

I love this product! I use it all around my eye--upper, lower, and corners. My eyes instantly look brighter and have a shimmery glow. The color is very subtle and pretty. Only a small amount is needed which is good because the tube in comes in is tiny! It's only .17 oz, so don't be disappointed. The texture is creamy and spreads on smoothly and evenly. LOVE IT!

I have the eyesicles in vanilla and island bronze and I really like them! I keep these in my "on the go" makeup bag- for when I only have 2 min to do my makeup in the car. They are shimmery and really brighten up the eye area. A little goes a long way!!! There is no creasing (Unless you apply too much.) I just wish they had these in more colors.

This stuff lasts forever!!!!! I bought a tub more than a year ago and its about 1/2 gone. It only takes a very small dab to cover the whole eyelid. I agree that it does crease but if you let it dry before you close your eye its ok.....also if you put too much of course it will crease. I use this under my eye and in the inner corner for highlighting, its really sheer so using it as the main eyeshadow doesnt really do much for me because my skin is about the same color.

when i bought this i thought i would really love it and it could double as a base and highlighter. well i was wrong. 1/2 wrong. this worked wonderfully as a highlighter because it is pretty much a cream shimmer a very sheer cream though. this also brightens up my inner tearduct and looks great there. it brightens my eye in general. BUT this creases like mad and i can never get an even texture with this! its always more sparkly on one part of my eyelid than the other. it really depresses me because its such a pretty shimmer. instead i guess ill have to stick with my HIP paint in secretive which is the same except more subtle shimmer. goes on more evenly. works better as a base. not as sheer. does not crease. stays on all day. so i totally recommend that product (unless you have the money for mac paintpots or mac paint because those are even better duh theyre mac haha). all in all i like using this as a highlighter and something to brighten the inner corner of my eye. i wouldnt use this for anything else. i also would not buy this again because im going to stick to my HIP paint and my MAC paint + paintpots. hope i helped!

I really like this eye shadow! It has a really pretty, light color and it's creamy and easy to put on if I want a sheer, pretty sparkle. I like how creamy it is and the look it gives me.

On me, it gives just a pretty shimmer for a quickie color.

This is a product I use everyday even when I don't use any other shadow it brightens up my eye area and makes me look more awake. The shadow feels so soft and creamy on. I like to pat a little in the inner corner of my eye also to brighten it up. The color is great as a highlighter or for all over the lid. This product couldn't be any more prefect the stuff is even waterproof!!! After it is applied it wont smear or run off your face if you want to go swimming! I live in a very humid place and this stays perfect no matter how hot it is outside. My only complaint is I wish there were more colors there are only two vanilla and bronze they are great but i want more :(. Hope this helps!

I got this free from my friend who works at Mary Kay, and I love it. I use it all over my upper lids and up to the brow line, and my eyes are brighter and perkier for it. It never creases and you can't really apply too much. The tube is small, but it'll last you for at least a year (I've had mine for a couple of years now with frequent use.) I think this color would look good on anyone.

I have been using this cream eyeshadow for about two years and I love it it goes on dry and I actually use it as a highlighter and is incredible!

I must admit that I am dissapointed by this. After the great reviews I figured it must be amazing. A lot of the mary kay products with low ratings I am loving, and then the ones with the best ratings I don't like *shrugs*. The color is really pretty and eye-brightening but the texture is kind of sticky and it creases pretty quickly. Boo. I give it a three because of the eye brightening aspect and because it can be salvaged by UDPP. Also, the price is pretty low but the tube is incredibly tiny.
