Review // Avon Supershock Vivid Liquid Eyeshadow in Chromed Cocoa

Avon Supershock Vivid Liquid Eyeshadow
A while ago I bought some sort of gift set from Avon. Inside it was this liquid eyeshadow, a lipstick and a mascara, all for £8 and all full sized. I received this Supershock Vivid Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Chromed Cocoa which is a lovely metallic bronze with a hint of gold.

The doe foot applicator makes for easy application although it takes a little bit of getting used to. Applying eyeshadow with a doe foot applicator? Sacrilege!  When you first apply this eyeshadow it feels very wet on the eyelids. So much so that I had to close my eyes for about two minutes after applying it because I don't want it to transfer higher up on my eyelids. This is not ideal when you are rushed for time. I also find that I have to apply two layers of this all over my eyelids to get a full colour, otherwise it's quite sparse.

The formula itself intrigued me to begin with. In the bottle you can quite clearly see that it's very watery, which made me wonder how it would stay put on my eyelids. This takes some drying time but on the plus side, it makes it easy to layer up the eyeshadow to make it a bolder colour. Unfortunately, this product does fail in the no creasing area which is so disappointing as it is a pretty colour. Here is a before and after photo. Before being first thing in the morning, after being in the evening).
Overall, I am quite disappointed. It takes forever to dry as it is too wet, the colour is sheer so it needs some building and it doesn't stay put on the eyelids for very long.
