I’m pretty much kicking myself for only picking up one of these at this point.
I purchased Painted Purple at CVS out of the selection they had because I love purples, and I was limiting myself to only 1 just in case they didn’t work out. My eyelids get slightly oily so cream eyeshadows generally don’t stay put on me.
Painted Purple is a pretty violet purple and goes on slightly sheer and can be built up. I used my finger to apply it all over my lid and a little in the crease. I used MAC Pink Freeze on the inner corners over Painted Purple. I applied a small amount of Painted Purple on the lower outer corners of my eyes as well.
The color is just beautiful! It went on smoothly, spread easily and the finish was like a powder shadow. It wasn’t budging. I’ll be heading back to CVS for Edgy Emerald and Tough as Taupe soon! The color did fade a little bit by the end of the day, but really not enough for me to complain about considering my oily skin. This lasted far longer than other cream shadows I’ve dealt with!
Also – please ignore my eyeliner… I didn’t really notice it until after the pictures were taken. Oops.
These babies retail for about $7.00 at various stores ( I saw them at CVS and Walgreens) and are well worth the investment!
