Packaging: 9/10

These Creme Eyeshadows come in square jars made of clear plastic. The lids are white and twist off. Inside, the cream is loose but a plastic stopper keeps the product somewhat in place (like with the L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadows). The jars are bigger than necessary, given the amount of product you get, but the quality of the packaging is better than what you might expect from a Wal-Mart brand.

Quality: 9/10

Lilac You A Lot is a light lilac color. It gives off a low-to–medium level of shimmer with a silver, almost duo-chromed finish. The color, once applied to the lids, is translucent. This means you get a hint of purple color to the lids without having to sport a truly purple eye look.

The Color Play Creme Eyeshadow formula feels like a whipped mousse. It’s not pressed the way the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows or MAC’s Electric Cool Eyeshadows are, but I imagine this is what the formula would feel like before it was pressed. The shadow feels very light on the skin and is slightly cooling when initially applied.

I was surprised to not see any noticeable creasing for the first three (3) to four (4) hours, even without primer applied. I think there was technically some creasing after the first several hours of wear, but because of Lilac You A Lot’s translucent finish, it was really hard to tell whether there was a line in the crease or not.

If you want a sheer, slightly shimmery wash of light purple on the lids, this is a great eye shadow. You could also use this as a base for a shimmering powder eyeshadow. If you’re looking for a more bold purple shade or stronger color payoff, opt for a powder shadow or different product.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

You can apply this product onto your lids with your finger. You also have the option of using a fluffy brush, but I’d recommend laying the color down first with your finger or a flat, synthetic brush and doing any brush blending afterwards. This color doesn’t really require a primer to prevent creasing because any signs of creasing are very difficult to detect.

Price: 9/10

For around $8.00 you get 0.12 ounces (3.5grams) of product. This is the same price-point and amount of product as with L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadows.
