It has been an incredibly intense couple of weeks at work, so much so that I found myself rushing to work a few days ago without any time to spare. I grabbed a couple of jumbo eyeshadow pencils and a lipstick, and took off, slapping things on in the car as I went. All this made possible thanks to a handful of new Cosme Decorte AQMW Eye Crayons!
Jumbo eyeshadow pencils are some of my favourite makeup items as they are so handy for travels and makeup on the go. More importantly, the best of them make applying makeup so easy – simply swipe and blend out with either a brush or finger. These Cosme Decorte AQMW Eye Crayons are easily some of the best I’ve tried! Their packaging is certainly the sweetest with each tube bearing the color of the product inside, so it is easy to tell at a glance what you are picking up. And there is a floral pattern embossed along the tube, to give it a vintage vibe.
Like many eyeshadow crayons out there, these swivel up and down, and come with a sharpened tip. The size of the tip is perfect for smaller Asian eyes, narrow enough to work as a liner, and the sides are wide enough to cover a bigger surface of the lids for all over color.
For this release, there are 5 limited edition shades:
All of the shades go on smoothly without skipping, and has some subtle light shimmers to brighten up the eyes. I found they all worked equally well as liners, and blended out easily with a few light taps of my finger or brush. They do tend to sheer out when blended, but the resultant color is soft and elegant in classic Japanese aesthetic. You can layer for greater opacity, or mix and match a few other shades for your own unique look. They are water-resistant, but I still needed a primer to hold it in place on my oily hooded lids.
Cosme Decorte AQMW Eye Crayon retails for SGD38 each, and are out in counters now.
