Product | This product is described as gel powder eyeshadow.
Pigmentation | The pigmentation was okay. The cake is hard in all five of these shadows and is hard to swatch. Even when wet the shadows do not give off goof pigmentation. The pigmentation of the cake appears rich but upon swatching it wasn’t as opaque.
Application | Bella Pink applies smooth and a little flaky but not very opaque. I’m not sure why these are called Gel Eyeshadow because it doesn’t apply like a gel shadow should.
Texture | The gel eyeshadow is smooth and softy, and has a moist feeling to it. It does not flake when swatched with a flat brush but a fluffy brush will bead up slightly around the cake.
Longevity | Each shadow lasted less than 3 hours and faded. You can apply wet or dry but you will get the same amount of wear time. This product will need a primer to stay on longer and to appear vibrant.
