Here I am, just perusing the Yahoo! Beauty feed when all sudden something catches my eye. The sentence that caught my eye was where the journalist said; “the subtle Molten formulation is kind of turning me into a believer.” Can this new eye shadow be that good? You see where this is going. I saw this article…I had to investigate.
Oh! These colors are so pretty! The duos come in lots of color options: pink, taupe, teal, even navy. Lots of potential here. I picked mine up for $6.99 at Target, pretty average price. I picked up #306: Rose Haze. The packaging is kind of cheap, but hey, doesn’t bother me. So far so good.
In the first swatch below, I used my finger. I was excited because the texture did feel really smooth just like the article notes. This swatch shows two passes. I was really disappointed because, as you can see, no pigmentation. It was worse in person!
Below in the next swatch, vertically on my arm I swiped the right side with a primer. The left side has no primer. I wanted to see how these would apply over a primer with a brush since that is most likely how you would be using these. Below I dipped back for product twice. Same as the finger swatch above, no pigmentation. And, they pretty much fell right off.
Needless to say, this was a total flop for me. There are so many good options for shadows at the drugstore that offer pigmentation and staying power. In my opinion, these are a skip. In fact, I returned the product.
Have you tried these? Did you have a similar experience?
Until next time, plant nothing but love.
