Review: L'oreal HIP Cream Shadow Paint

L'oreal HIP Cream Shadow Paint in Witty & Secretive

Product Info from L'oreal:
Crease-resistant shadow or as a wear extending, color enhancing base.
High intensity pigments provide long-wearing, intense color.
Specially designed brush provides professional and precise application.

RETAIL PRICE: Less than Php 150 on Ebay.

WEIGHT: 7.2 grams

SHADES: Available in more than 5 shades.

* creamy texture ; easy to spread
* pigmented; a tiny amount goes a long way
* hygenic squeeze tube packaging
* secretive is also a eye primer. I noticed minimal (tiny) creasing on the inner corners of my eyelids.
* evens out my lid color (secretive)
* dries to a powder finish
* doesn't look flakey when it dries
* makes my powder eyeshadow colors look more vibrant (see pics below)

* not available locally. I think this product is already discontinued.

* free brush is scratchy so I just use my fingers in applying.

* Apply a small amount on the eyelids using your fingers or a synthetic brush.
* Let it dry first before applying powder eyeshadow on top.

If you're looking for an inexpensive eye primer, I highly recommend SECRETIVE (for those with not so oily lids).
I want to purchase Steely (grayish-black shade), I think it is nice when used as base for grey or black eyeshadows for smokey eyes.

Free brush is similar to MAC 242 according to THIS blogger.

i have tried elf cream shadow only. is it also a base? haha! i have no idea. but creams do crease on my lids cause my lids usually can secrete gazillion of gallons of oils in a day.

anyway, thanks for sharing this. the free brush is lovely!
