I have tried this as an eyeshadow as well as a liner, it has a very creamy texture. I would not suggest anyone to use this as an eyeshadow unless you are used to going dark and bold. the base of the eyeshadow is black, but the metallic colours that shine through the black, looks amazing, I use this more as an eyeliner, by wetting the brush a bit and dipping it in the product and then applying it to the eye gently. It’s much easier if you wet your brush first as the product then glides on the eye. This type of liner should be used on a very simple eye so that one may see just how beautifully it stands out.
