Hydro My Powder

I have a few issues with cream shadows... Mainly they just don't like to stay on my lid. Even when I use my trusty Urban Decay Priming Potion, they just...melt right off. It's pretty annoying, because they tend to be gorgeous when you first apply them, but take a glance in the mirror a few hours later? Nada. A creased mess. Not so pretty anymore.

Well, I was going through my drawers in an attempt to reorganize my mass amounts of eyeshadow and I rediscovered a long lost favorite.

I completely forgot how much I adore this eye shadow. Aside from the beautiful array of colors and the buildable pigment, this stuff stays on. Forever. You can get anything from a luminescent wash of color to an intense, smokey eye that almost looks like it glows.

Seriously, this stuff is amazing. It goes on really smooth, blends really well, and is all around one of the easiest-to-use products I've ever come across.

I have it in:

H1 - Goldlights (shimmery gold)
H2 - Whitelights (shimmery white)
H6 - Violet Visions (this is the one in the photo above)
H13 -Clover Dew (shimmery pale iridescent green)

I've heard really good things about most of the other colors as well.

Plus the little pots are adorable and best of all - they're durable. I've dropped them many a time and no cracks or or anything in the packaging or the product. I've ruined many products by fumbling them mid-application so durability is a huge plus for me.

Anyone else ever tried these awesome shadows? Let me know! I'd love to hear about it!
