I have this thing for glittery gold eyeshadows and I also have a thing for cream eyeshadows. Therefore I tend to try any I come across, which is why I ordered The Saem’s contribution, the Aqua Fix Waterproof Shine Fix Eyeshadow.
There are a lot of these kinds of pot pigments where Korean brands are concerned – most are pressed powders that are very creamy and feel like they could be wet but they’re actually not = fall out city.
Now when this first arrived I didn’t realise it had – why? The packaging is SO cheap.
Let me lay in to the packaging more. It’s small. It’s light and cheap. It’s ugly. The lip of the tub is so deep it’s hard to get a finger in there. I dismissed this for a week because I thought it was a free sample from the seller, NOT an actual item I paid for!
When I eventually clicked that it wasn’t a free item, I felt disappointed by the naff-ness of the packaging.
But inside was a fairly average gold coppery glitter (shade 06) which is flattering and easy to wear on my skin tone. I do love these kinds of golds.
Aside from appearances – this product is rather wonderful.
Apart from the colour which is neither too warm or too cool, it has a wet spongey texture which is exactly what I want in a cream eyeshadow. I apply it with a brush as I cannot get my stubby finger in there effectively.
When applied it gives a rich glittery foiled golden eye – you can build it up but just one sweep gives a really rich finish. Because it is slightly wet it adheres well to the skin and there is no creasing and NO FALL OUT.
I have been using this product daily because it’s an easy way to get a glam eye quick!
It is a small pot so I don’t know how long it will last for – so far the product seems to be quite pigmented and I only seem to take a small layer each time.
There are 6 colours in this range, from a deep blue, white, orange, cranberry, brown and bronze which is the one I have.
I have already ordered 3 more colours! This product is the best pigment/glitter/cream shadow I have used in a long while.
I paid around £6 for this from but it is also sold on eBay.
