Packaging: 9.5/10

These shadows come in glass jars with plastic, twist-off lids. The lids twist off and close tightly to help keep the product from drying out.

Quality: 9.25/10

Lavish Lavender is a grey-based plum color with a silver, shimmery sheen. Of the limited edition Color Tattoo shades in the Summer 2013 collection, this has the most dense color.

The formula has a smooth, cream-gel consistency that also results in a smooth layer of color on the lid. The product sets to a dry finish soon after application.

Lavish Lavender also lasted much longer before creasing when compared to the other Summer 2013 colors–about five (5) hours without primer applied and eight (8) with primer applied.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

You can apply this shadow with your fingers or with a flat brush across the lids. If you want to blend it through the crease, make sure to do one eye at a time because the shadow dries after a few seconds.

Price: 9.5/10

For around $8.00, you get 4 grams of shadow. MAC Paint Pots contain 5 grams of shadow and cost $18.50, while MAC Metal-X Cream Shadows cost $20.00 and contain 2.4 grams. Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadows cost $19.00 and contain 4.5 grams.
