The fast-drying formula is designed to prevent creasing and fading. These pencils have a built-in sharpener, which is really nice for precise application. The Crème Eyeshadow Crayons are waterproof, crease-resistant (truth in advertising), and paraben-free.
I took swatch photos in full, morning sun, applying Rococo straight from the tube in only one layer on my arm. I didn't blend the color.
I like the long wear of this cream eye shadow. It does not crease on me, but I always use a primer. I haven't tested it without. You can wear it as a primer or base coat with powder shadows, an extra-added benefit.
I'm still eying that 50% discount code I have for signing up for the Insider newsletter. In addition to what's already in my shopping cart, I must add another Crème Eyeshadow Crayon. I love this one. I think it's going to be Baroque, described as a shimmering soft gold - even though it looks bronze online. I'll bet the two shades will coordinate beautifully. I know they will blend seamlessly.
