5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - null
New favorite makeup product!
I was initially a little skeptical about getting this product, but was talked into it while shopping for just one eyeshadow, and boy was I glad I got it. I use this almost every day, and as a full-time student with an almost full-time job, I can quickly (I got this down to less than 3 mins now!) apply moisturizer, the 5-in-1 in Radiant Sand, and some mascara for a cute, fresh look that lasts all day. If I need to go out after class, I can add some eyeshadow, eyeliner, and some foundation for a easy transition that takes less that 5 mins sometimes! It can't get any more perfect than that. I even got my aunt (who used to never wear any makeup) to try and she loves it too! Highly recommend, but watch out for how thick this product is so you don't end up globbing it on. I recommend following the tutorial posted with the product and dab it on your hand then apply to your eyes.
5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadow
LOVE this stuff! A tiny bit goes a long way and last all day. I have it in blushing pink and it matches my eyelids and brightens up the eye area. I love wearing it along for a nude look and pairing it with my 7 ways to bare kit.
Does anyone know what color the model is wearing on the NEW 5 in 1 BB Cream Eyeshadow (WHAT'S NEW) Would love to add it to my collection, it's such a beautiful color.
Love this product!
I am a HUGE fan of eyelid primers and was overjoyed to try this latest one. It lived up to the hype and more. It goes on so smoothly, and stays exactly where you put it. I tried it in the Bare Linen and I love it both alone and as a true primer. It lasted all day and my normally oily eyelids stayed in check all day. I would highly recommend this next gen eyeshadow!!!
I received a sample of the Candlelit Peach. It's a nice color, but not really wowed by it.
What I do like is it dries quickly, really does brighten the eye, and is a good base color or on its own. What I don't like is that it dries so quickly that it's hard to apply evenly on my lid and can look splotchy on the edges. I tried this alone on my eye and it melted into my crease half way through the day so kind of fails as a primer. I have tried applying over the Primetime eyelid primer and that seems to help it's staying power but I don't think it blends well. Think I am going to stick with the loose shadows.
A good replacement
I was so devastated to see BE stopped making their eyelid primer with metallic tint. It was my go-to everyday primer. After going into a BE store and explaining my sadness about the discontinued item, the associate said this stuff is what they are making to replace my tinted primer. I tried a couple shades and decided on blushing pink.
So far this has been a good replacement! I use it every day as a primer. I only wear it on it's own when I run out of time and need to get out the door. I'm not a fan of the matte look on eyes, which is why I always layer over it. What is most important to me is that it doesn't crease! The only reason I gave this product 4/5 instead of 5/5 is because I feel like the application is a little awkward. I kind of wish it was in a squeeze tube (like my discontinued fave).
Can Double As An Under Eye Concealer!
I tried this product in Candlelit Peach, and it actually worked so well with my skin tone that I used it to pull double duty as an under eye concealer! Be forewarned though - a little bit goes a long way, and it might not be practical to use the sponge applicator. I ended up using my fingers after dabbing on a little bit, as trying to use the applicator gave me too much product.
Best Eyeshadow for me
I bought linen and divine wine and I love both. I started out using a lot of both...big mistake! A little goes a long way. I use the linen as a highlighter and the divine wine on my lids and they stay all day without creasing or fading. The are easy to remove with eye makeup remover or a good facial cleanser. I like my makeup to be subtle especially in the summer and these fit the bill. When it gets closer to winter, I'll probably buy a bolder color or two.
It's a Miracle!
I am 55 with well-balanced skin but, at times, can be somewhat oily. I have tried every eye primer and trick in the book to keep my eyeshadow from creasing and looking ugly by noon. The 5 in 1 is an amazing product. I have been using it for several weeks and no matter what the weather or temperature brings, I haven't had any creasing whatsoever. I now feel confident that my eye makeup will look great all day, and it does! I am using the barely nude shade and it is a bit light for my complexion but it works well with all shades of neutral eye shadows. I wear the BM powder foundation in "Medium" to give you an idea of my skin tone. Love this stuff!
I don't normally like cream shadows--my eyelids are very large and fold a lot when I have my eyes open, so cream shadows always end up smearing and making a big line across my lid. However, I got this as a sample in the mail as a FAB member, and tried it out. I LOVED IT. I couldn't believe it. Not only did it blend across my lid well, but it didn't budge at all once it dried. I ended up with lid SPF protection, a uniform skin tone on my lids, and it brightened around my eyes, as well! I would give this 5 stars, but the color I received was a little bit too pink for my liking. But I would buy this again! And in more colors (dark ones for a natural dramatic eye, neutral light tones for normal).
Brightens, but doesn't last
I love how easy this is to apply- no risk of a mess like I have with the loose pigments. I own the blushing pink, the candlelit peach, the soft linen, and the divine wine. I have not tried the divine wine yet, but all of the others blend in with my skin tone, so my eyes look brighter, but it only works if I am going for the "no makeup" look. I have tried these under my other pigments and it just doesn't last. By the end of the day, all that is left of my eye shadow is caked creases. This never happens when I use the regular eye primers. Great idea, but for me these just don't work.
