The first shade I tried was Bold Gold. I applied this on my eye using my finger and without a primer. Big mistake for me! There was major creasing and melting after only a couple hours. I totally blame this on my oily lids.
The next day I tried Pomegranate Punk. This time, I applied my primer of choice (Too Faced Shadow Insurance) and after the primer was dry, I gently patted my lids with a tissue to soak up any remaning oil. I just wanted to be sure they were completely dry and oil free. I then applied the eyeshadow with my finger. I'm happy to say that Pomegranate Punk lasted me late into the night and was still looking perfect when I removed my makeup before bed. :)
Today I've been wearing Edgy Emerald for about 9 hours, and it's still good to go. :) Again, I applied this using a primer, and I blotted my eyelid gently with a tissue before application.
I think all three colours are super gorgeous, and I can't wait to try more shades. I'm looking at Audacious Asphalt next.
Here's my swatches, without flash:

I've been playing around with these eyeshadows to try and create different looks for the past few days. I'll be sure to post a blog when I find something worth sharing!
Have you tried the Color Tattoos or any other cream shadows? I was very close to picking up a Shiseido Shimmering Eye Color this past weekend, but the price was pretty steep.
Thanks for reading! :)
