Sweets-Sweets Sparkling Eye Gloss

Hello dearies!

Recently, I've been fond of using cream eyeshadows as eyeshadow bases. They prolong makeup and make the powder eyeshadows look bolder. So when I was in Osaka browsing the makeup stores, I saw a product that got me interested (and it was on sale too!)...

Sweets-Sweets Sparkling Eye Gloss

It's somewhere around 1,000 Yen.

When I saw these tubes, I swatched them and thought that the shades look great. I really liked the champagne and soft pink shades I saw when I swatched them at the counter. And the colors are neutral enough to work as base too if I want to add eyeshadow on top. Since I want to try out more products from different Japanese brands, I bought them.

But before I let you see the swatches, let's check the product descriptions. Since there's no english translation on Sweets-Sweets' website, here's the info from Dokodemo.world:

A wet & glow eye gloss that sticks well on your eyes and makes you achieve a gradational color easily.

Gives your eyes an impressive look.
Hardly accumulate in the double-edged eyes and get ruined by sebum.
You can draw eyeliner smoothly on it.

Please adjust the amount of paint on the instep
Apply directly chip on the eyelid

No. 1 is Milky Beige and No. 4 is Smokey Pink

The packaging is simple and cute. It's not too bulky and I like that it is transparent so you can easily see the shade you're getting.

It's easy to use because it already comes with an applicator.

The doe-foot applicator can carry enough product for one eyelid (two if you only use a little).

Below are the swatches.

Left is the 01 Milky Beige
Right is the 04 Smokey Pink

It's super creamy when swatched. The color payoff is really nice too.

The blending is easy because of the creamy consistency. I like the fine shimmers it gives.

When fully blended, the colors are barely noticeable now... which disappointed me to be honest. I didn't blend it like this when I was at the counter so I already bought it when I found out. Anyway, I still like the color!

Here's what it looks like on my lid.

It makes my lids look supple with the shimmer. It just adds a little extra to a simple eye look. I actually like the effect it creates when I apply it. Unfortunately, it creases after 4-5 hours, especially if I don't put powder eyeshadow on top (maybe because it is still an eye "gloss"?). So even though it claims to be long-lasting even with sebum, it's not the case for me. Perhaps it is because of my hooded eyelids? 

It also isn't a really good base in terms of prolonging the stay because I still experience creasing. It does make the color of the powder eyeshadow stand out, but that's all it does as a base for me.

So even though I do like the shades and the shimmery-glossy effects, I still value the staying power of a product so I'm just so-so with this product.

What about you? Any thoughts on this? Do you also use cream eyeshadows? What qualities do you prefer?
