Packaging: 9.75/10

Crystal Eyez Sparkling Eye Shadows come in plastic squeeze tubes. The opening is narrow, which gives you good control over how much product you dispense.

Quality: 6.75/10

This shadow has a gel consistency and fairly large glitters that feel grainy on the skin. I suspect these aren’t cosmetic-grade glitters–they seem more like art glitters. The texture isn’t pleasant, especially on the eyes.

The shadow looks beautiful in the tube, but when it’s applied, you lose most of the color you see in the packaging. Instead, you get a clear base with far-spaced copper glitters. The glitter effect is weak and you have to layer to get a decent finish, regardless of whether you apply it alone or over another shadow. I didn’t experience any fall-out.

Overall, the effect was disappointing.

Ease of Use: 7.75/10

In order to get any sort of noticeable shimmer, you have to apply 2-3 layers. You also need to wait for the product to dry in between layers. Application is complicated by the fact that the glitter doesn’t distribute evenly, which is another reason layering is required.

Price: 8.5/10

For $7.49, you get 0.3 fl oz of shadow.

    I would hope they are sure these glitters are eye-safe but it’s sort of disturbing that they feel unpleasant. Ah, good…something else at avoid! Thanks for the review!
