Jemma Kidd Make Up School’s Stardust Creme Shadows come in pencil form and 9 shades. This review is for the shade Orion–a shimmering champagne.
This cream shadow comes in an extremely light-weight tube made of pink-colored metal. The tube itself is no longer than the length of your palm. The base twists to push up the product and the cap slides on securely.
Orion is brimming with shimmer. It has high-intensity shine, but doesn’t look gaudy or chunky on the lid.
The formula is smooth and glides onto the skin easily, without tugging or skipping.
But the cream formula creases quickly, even if you use a base or primer underneath. I saw complete creasing in the crease within the first hour. I blended out the product 4 times during the day to get rid of the bunching that occurred in the crease, but as long as there was product on the lid, it re-creased. Wearing the product with or without primer didn’t make a difference in terms of creasing.
This is a beautiful color, but the inevitable and almost instant creasing just isn’t acceptable.
Ease of Use: 9/10
This product transfers onto the skin effortlessly, and the small bullet form makes precise application possible. But it is a hassle to blend out the product multiple times throughout the day to get rid of the unattractive creasing.
For $18.00 you get 1.4 grams (0.04 ounces) of shadow. Stila’s Smudge Crayons contain the same amount of product but cost $4.00 more. Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Shadows cost $20.00 but contain much more–0.14 ounces.
