Best shadow for older women
Date:March 7, 2013
I am 61 years old so the crepey eyelids are a reality for me. This shadow goes on smoothly. It is glossy and reflects light. Hence, I can wear color that does not look like it settles in the crinkles. Love it. I have purchased the lilac, arctic sky, teal, pistachio, and they go on flawlessly. I also have the orchid but for some reason, I need to apply this one wet to get the smoothness. I've got my eye on some of the other colors. It's like candy only you don't gain weight. Try one!
Wow, this eyeshadow packs a punch of color! Highly pigmented. The pink is absolutely beautiful and goes well with the lilac (think purple) and copper (think brown). The lilac is on the darker/deeper side, and so is the copper - but are very beautiful colors! I was going to stop at three - pink, lilac and copper - but I think I want the silver also! Oh and when you put them on wet, they are more intense. Very nice!
Super smooth application and long wear, my makeup usually fades within 3 hours without a base, this stayed for 10 plus hours, the only downside is the very short applicator. This shadow rocketed to the top of my favorites!
This is a wonderful line of eye shadows. The girl who sold this product to me showed me how I could apply it wet, dry, or both, depending on what look i was going for. Yes, as said in a previous review,when applied dry, it is rather sheer, but when applied wet, you get the bold and thick metallic look you see in the adverts!
I bought this eyeshadow in Artic Sky. I thought it might be too metallic for my taste but based on the other customer reviews I took a chance. I am SO glad I did! This is now the only eyeshadow I will purchase. I have brown/green hazel eyes and the Artic Sky color really emphasizes their color. I am definitely triying other shades.
I ordered this eye shadow about 2 weeks ago. I was expecting a pretty color eye shadow. When it arrived I was surprised at how this product exceeded my expectations. I ordered the pink and it is absolutely beautiful. The texture of the shadow is kind of a cross between a mouse and a powder. It is metallic but does not accentuate wrinkles or imperfections. What I like about this eye shadow is it can be worn alone. No need to use another eyeshadow with it. It looks pretty by itself.
I apparently had a much different experience of this product than other reviewers. About 90% of my makeup is from EL. I've been using EL since age 15 (and I turned 50 this year). I love, love, love almost every EL product I've ever tried.
Were that the case with the Gelee Powdered EyeShadow. IF I could give it NO stars, I would.
I was intrigued by the product description and technology and purchased the copper shade. I put it on with a brush and the results were so awful (I looked like an escapee from Les Mis) that I had to wipe it off and change to another shadow.
I decided the applicator might be a problem, so tried a second time with the sponge applicator in the package. I still looked sick. Into the trash it went.
I'm really sorry I spent the $20+ on this. If it were my first EL purchase, it would be my last. I'll just stick to the standard EL products from now on.
Love it, love it. Not only are the colors brilliant, but the shadow glides on smoothly and blends beautifully. The silver has a bluish hue and, paired with the deep orchid shade makes my green eyes really stand out. The texture is amazing, the color stays in place, and I don't end up with "shadow dust" under my eyes or on my cheeks after applying. Excellent product - A+!
I love the color of this eye shadow. I bought it in a green color and it looks great under the eye as a liner. The only problem I have is the applicator. It is way too small so I use another brush to apply it. The shadow rarely smudges and when it does I believe it is from my under eye cream. I would recommend this eye shadow. Get it in all the colors!!!
I only have cyber copper (which is a brown) and cyber ruby (which is a burgundy). I love neutral shade that I can wear just one color to work. So far I love them...the color is on the dark side..not so vivid for those two shades but they are pretty. Cyber copper is more metallic brown that is good for smoky eye. Cyber ruby has tiny red gold fleck so it is very pretty (can look a bit red-brown) but not so metallic (more on the shimmer end). It is long lasting even when you apply dry while the color is more sheer. The color really comes alive when you apply wet and it outlasts than applied dry. I don't use primer but will try to see if the color can pop a little more with primer. I am interested to get more color but will stay with neutral shade that I can use forever...
I have many of these singles, and two of the Limited Edition 5 color Gelee palettes. I love how silky smooth the product is...and the color lasts until I take it off at bedtime. I have found that I can get away with the more dramatic colors if I use them just along my lash line. I would have given this 5 stars if it wasn't so metallic.
this products is the best. it is very beautiful applied dry, but when you wet the sponge it is amazing. it is super pigmented, a little goes a long way and it blends perfectly with little effort. i want every color. this formula is genius!
I have this shadow in cyber pink and it is so great! It glides on very smooth and it's very natural with some shimmer. I have been wearing it almost everyday to work because it's subtle and light. I am definitely looking to invest in a few more colors!
