Product Review: Tarte Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Tarte
Name: Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo
Size: 4 g / 0.14 oz.
Price: approx. $17.00 USD

Shade Tried: Cream

From the website: "Unlike traditional cream shadows that crease and smudge, this new twist on the makeup artist trick is waterproof and creaseproof. The matching loose shadow in a roller ball applicator easily glides over cream shadow to lock color in and add luminosity so color lasts all day."

To Purr About:
- didn’t crease
- convenient package and great for touch-ups
- cream shadow and loose shadow matched nicely
- blends easily
- long lasting
- comes in 5 great shades

Claws Out:
- both cream and loose shadow are a bit hard to control
- don’t get a lot of product for the price

Final Comments:
Tarte’s Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo combines two great products into one. The cream shadow and the loose powder shadow can be used separately, but their real potential comes when they are used together.

After using this product for a bit I’m really impressed. I did have a bit of trouble at first applying this product, but I think I just needed some practice. I was a bit surprised how wet the cream shadow was, but now I realize how great it is for blending. Similarly, I found the loose powder a bit tricky as it’s not very precise in application, but again – blends brilliantly. This is probably a big con for those that want really precise control over their makeup application, but since I’m a blender and can’t apply makeup with precision for the life of me, it’s okay.

After getting the hang of applying this product – it really is quite easy to apply, blends well, lasts long, doesn’t crease and comes in 5 fun shades. I really love how convenient the applicator/packaging is which makes it great to slip in to your bag or purse.

The only con I can think of is that it doesn’t seem like a lot of product for the cost.
