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: 8.75/10

Time Willow Tell is a pale fern green color with a silvery sheen to its finish. It gives off a low-to–medium level of shimmer. The color, once applied to the lids, is translucent unless you apply multiple layers of the product. Even so, this isn’t the type of eye color that will give you an opaque finish.

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.

There was no noticeable creasing for the first three (3) hours of wear, even without primer applied. With primer applied, this color went for about five (5) hours before starting to fade in color and show signs of creasing.

Ease of Use: 9/10

You can apply this product onto your lids with your finger. If you want a less sheer finish, you need to let each layer dry and work in short, dabbing motions. 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.

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.
