Product Review:

Having a subscription to IPSY’s Glam Bag, going on year two now, I am always excited to receive my monthly goodies. Months ago this glittery cream shadow palette arrived and I couldn’t wait to get it on my lids. Having a weakness for glitter I always have high hopes for products such as this. Making a comparison between the J. Cat Cream Sparkling Shadows and, my fav so far, Eye Kandy Sprinkles would not be fair since they are two different products.

The colors in this palette are truly fall inspired and I really do love them but that’s where my adoration ends. Between the smearing and the clumping I couldn’t figure which one caused me more of a headache. After three different applications all ended in a huge disappointment. Attempt number one, no prep to the eyelid just the product and it simply would not stay in place and smeared. Next, using a translucent powder to prep my lids the cream reacted the same way as with nothing at all. Last, applying Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance had the worst result of all with the cream shadows as they did not blend.

Trying as I may the applications did not seem any harder or easier than any other eye shadow but it seems as though a lot of product had to be used to achieve any look. For me this is definitely not the “cat’s meow”.
