Wednesday Drugstore Epic Beauty Snag|Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow

color tattoo cream shadow

A worthy impulse buy for those who don’t wish to pay an arm and a leg for MAC’s Paint Pots. I grab this Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Fierce & Tangy (net wt: 0.14 oz) from the local drugstore.  Regular price at Uniprix drugstore is $8.99 but I got this one for $2.99 on special. Special products promo varies from store to stores.

It glides, blends, stays and leaves as you wish to manipulate it. No chalkiness, no unpleasant smells. Delicious looking shade that screams for fall season. I’ve other shades from this line but this shade just calling to me. So, I caved in (giggling!).

Here are some of the positive note I noticed. They don’t look greasy on my eyelids, they’re easy to apply and they stay put all day. As for the 24 hours claims by the Eyestudio, I didn’t go wearing it for 24 hours to confirm that but 9 hours is good enough for me.

It goes on quite nicely and can blend with other eyeshadows nicely. This product doesn’t run out very fast so you do get your moneys worth out of it. Very high pigmented goes on smoothly.

Although I find that it’s a little thick, it’s not heavy. They are great by themselves and great layered too.

You can use your fingers to apply it on your lids or as an eye base. I noticed using fingers to pat works best when I work on it. It is bright, there’s no denying it, and the brightness is welcomed especially for fall season – more of a sunset silhouette in my opinion.

Look at this pumpkin or tangerine color swatch of Fierce & Tangy. Don’t you love this shade for fall? Don’t get me wrong, I love other shades too but this one is phenomenal to wear on lids this time of the year. Available in 10 vibrant shades at Ulta, Maybelline, Drugstores, Walmart etc.

I’m very tempted to show this EOTD to all of you for I know you’re going to like it! Oh well! Here it is:

First, I applied the cream shadow on the eyelid to the crease using my finger to pat them on.  Then I used my favorite Baked and Beautiful Eyeshadow by Bh Cosmetics. I like wearing the Brown on the crease and Dark Brown on the outer corner and I applied a Black liquid eyeliner by Elf on the lashline. You can stop here or put on your mascara and fake lashes and you’re good to go.

I didn’t use an eye base because this cream shadow is creamy and any eyeshadows would stick on and blend well. An easy to wear eye makeup look which leaves you sometime extra time to have a cup of hot moka.

final EOTD

Don’t forget to remover your eyeshadows before going to bed. That’s one of the makeup rules. So, the bonus of this cream shadow is that they come off really easily with whatever you use as makeup remover. No dragging or harsh rubbing necessary.

Below is another EOTD look for a beautiful fall morning you may like to try.

I recommend you to get on the Love Boat for this one. I love ’em for the quality and good value for money. And so affordable, too!! My total star product – I love love love it and will repurchase as long as Maybelline has this on the shelves.

If you miss the full review of my previous Friday Makeup Haul, just hit here or continue reading if you like to read more of my thoughts and opinion on this Eyeshadow Duo by Joe Fresh. I’ll be sharing with you also some color swatches as well.

The eyeshadow shades I got is in Honeywell on the top and Apricot the lighter color below. All products of Joe Fresh have tight plastic wraps. I really love the packaging of this eyeshadow duo. It has a neat look and the plastic packaging is sturdy.

Just look at this closed up picture of the eyeshadow duo in the pan. Freaking awesome, don’t you think!

The texture is silky, creamy and oh my gosh, they’re so smooth! Not sure if this make sense but on my fingers the formula does have a wet velvety feel but when I swiped them on my bare hand it went on smoothly to powder. Not only were they not chalky but there are no fallout. It blends well and gives a natural neutral satin finish. For a long lasting result, you can apply primer before just for more staying power.

Here is the eyeshadow color swatch swipe directly on bare hands without primer. It takes the smallest amount for pigmentation and looks very natural on. Picture taken with natural light.

Neutral nude eye makeup

If you love neutral nude eyeshadow then this duo will make a very good pairing for an everyday look. The color is not bright or intense and the best part is that it stays put on my eyes the whole day. I’m wearing the two shades for this eye makeup. apricot on the lids and browbone and honeywell on the outer corner. Finished with an eyeliner by Mac and voila! Done in less than 2 minutes 😛 Love the soft dewy look!

So, I’m really like this eyeshadow duo and overall the quality is good with added value on price. If you have friends visiting Canada, don’t forget to ask them to get you some Joe Fresh makeup products. With stronger US exchange rate, it is worth trying some Canadian makeup brand for your collection. As for my Canadian friends, you know by now where to find Joe Fresh brand. If not, check out at your local grocery store: Loblaws, Maxi and Superstore 🙂

That’s all for today’s review and I hope you find this post helpful and interesting. Until next time, stay beautiful!

What do you think of Joe Fresh makeup brand? Have you heard of this brand before? I love to hear your comments.

Thank you as usual for taking the time to stop by.

Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow

All twelve pretty color shades of cream formula to pick. I can’t resist the temptation to get this illuminance cream shadow. My mind is saying it’s sooooo prettyyyy …. have to get it…… Like always, I  grabbed this purple eyeshadow palette again. The one I got was in 725 on Va Va Va Bloom. I just love the color and how creamy it was when I applied them on. It came in four color shades in a slim, sleek and mirrored compact.

These were the look of the illuminance cream shadow eye makeup I did yesterday. I did some closed up photos and there were nice pretty color shades.I’m not sure if you can see it clearly but you can see some colors on my eye lids. I didn’t use eye primer but the cream  does last long. I’m glad I got this. Planning to wear these colors on my eyes these fall for sure.

I only used three colors out of the palette which were the second on the pallete from left to right. I didn’t use the maroon for this look. For this look, I only apply eyeliner from Prestige in granite color. The top photos were taken under the lights and the bottom look with natural light.

The cream is not tacky and it glides smoothly. It holds up quite well. All four colors are  creamy and has some shimmer and it just looked so pretty on my eyes.
