Well, I had high hopes for this product. It did nothing for me. It creased and disappeared after a couple of hours. Its such a pretty color too but it didn't get the job done. I will not be repurchasing.

This is a creamy stick of peachy tan shimmer on the eyes it is extremely sheer and you can just see a hint of light gold shimmer which is pretty but not what i expected. Used w/ UDPP. After 4 hours this was almost completey faded and it creased.

Such a pretty color! But I was very disappointed with how quickly( instantly) and easily it creased. Even with UDPP and Too faced shadow insurance it creased right away. I don't have very oily lids so I was pretty surprised by the creasing. Demure is my first experience with a cream eye shadow and not sure if it's common for creasing. If you do give it a try I hope you have better luck than I did.

the color is beautiful with a perfect shade of gold and right amount of shimmer. but it is so creamy that it creases even on top of primer. don't even think about touching it because it will smear all over your fingers even if you've been wearing it all day. it is also impossible to blend or place shadows over. just a terrible base in general. if you want to try to use it alone, you probably could last for an hour or two if you have dry lids.

IMHO, winkstick in demure is the perfect dupe for mac shadestick in beige-ing. i love this as a base for pretty much any eye shadow as well as for a highlight on the inner corner of my eyes or under my brows. it blends easily, the texture being just a little ligher than that of shadesticks. this is the only product i have a backup of in my case, no joke. i HIGHLY reccomend this to pretty much anyone. used with UDPP all over my lids it does not crease at all. i've even used this alone as a base and had no problems and i have pretty oily/creasey lids.

Sigh. I had such high hopes for this brilliantly-packaged eyeshadow. I usually LOVE mark products, and I think the hook-up line is terrific. Even though I loved the color of demure (a shimmery champagne), it is so greasy and oily that it barely even adheres itself to my eyelids. I tried several different powders and eyeshadow bases as an attempt to get it to stay, but this greasy shadow pulled the anchoring powder right off! Gave it one lippie for the color, and another lippie for the packaging. Otherwise, this shadow is pretty useless!

Cute little shadow that can be hooked up to another shadow or l/s(gleamsticks) with a special connector..Great for touch ups or someone who doesn't wear makeup often..I say this because like the Gleamsticks,these are TINY there only an inch of product..This particular color Demure is a golden beige..On my warm toned skin it comes across as shimmer only..Stays creamy,doesn't dry down so you'll have trouble with creasing unless you use a primer..All in all not a bad way to spend $5
