This shadow promises to lock in color with a two-step application process. On one end of the wand is a cream shadow that comes out on what looks like a lip-gloss brush. After applying the cream color, you switch to the other side and apply a powder with a roller ball. Only problem is the brush is unwieldy and imprecise. The roller ball comes out with big chunks of powder. If you can get it on correctly, it does have staying power. However, you have lost about 30% of product in the messy application process. I appreciate that this product does quality for Sephora’s natural seal, but it doesn’t do much good if it is a mess to apply.
