Product description from Sephora:

Too Faced LOCKDOWN Ultimate Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow combines deep metallic pigments with Shadow Insurance’s anti-crease base to create a staying power that is unmatched. This beautiful, long-wearing formula is easy to apply and your peepers are protected from creasing, fading, and smudging.  Size: 0.28 oz, 8grams

MY REVIEW:

These are Too Faced version of shimmery cream eyeshadows. The various shades are  infused with Too Faced’s famous shadow insurance.

PRICE:

  • £12.72 for 8grams

PACKAGING:

  • Comes in a box with very colourful design of the word “Lockdown”.
  • The actual tube is just a plastic tube in  a similar shade to the actual product.
  • Twist cap in a squeeze tube.
  • Small tip where the product comes from.

SHADES:

  • 6 Shades Available:
  1. Bedroom Eyes:  shimmery reddish brown although Sephora calls it shimmery taupe
  2. Bondage : shimmery ivory champagne
  3. Dramarama: shimmery chocolate brown
  4. I’m Guilty: shimmery teal blue
  5. Jailbait: shimmery pale pink – looks a bit frosty if application is heavy handed.
  6. Prisoner Of Love: shimmery  pink although Sephora calls it shimmery soft pink

FORMULAE:

  • Texture: Cream to powder formulae.
  • Blendability: Not bad.
  • Lasting Power: Lasts only 4 hours…creasing present on one eye. The other eye has no eyeshadow left (I wonder where it went?). If I top off with powder, it lasts about 6 hours.

EFFECT:

Well…the Lockdowns are pretty shimmery…some of the lighter shades have very sparse mini microglitter  but the glitter disappears if u spread out the product. It dries pretty fast so you have to spread it out fast. I use my fingers for application.  Gives a nice wash of shimmery colour.

VERDICT

Well…depending on how much $$ you have…if you want to save on $$, just get the plain Too Faced Shadow Insurance to use as a base.  If you want a shimmery eyeshadow that doesnt crease and has quick application for those busy morning use…these arent that bad.

Hope these help!
