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.
Seashore Frosts is a very grey-based, soft blue shade with a pale gold sheen. This is one of the most unique and interesting shades I’ve seen for an eye shadow. Once applied to the lids, you can’t really tell what this color is–whether it’s a blue, a gold, or something else. The finish is translucent and slightly shimmery.
The formula has a smooth, cream-gel consistency. The product sets to a dry finish soon after application.
Without primer applied, this shade creased after three (3) hours of wear. Over primer, the shadow creased after six (6) hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 8/10
Packing this color not the lid must be done in short, dabbing motions because swiping a brush or your finger with the shadow on it across too much can give you a streaky, patchy finish.
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.
