I love the idea of multitasking products. It saves space when you’re a huge beauty junkie, makes life easier, plus it eliminates the need to carry more stuff in your makeup bag!
mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow works as both a cream eyeshadow and an eyeliner all in one plus it offers a bit of variety by providing us with not one shade but two in one compact.
Let’s take a peek!
I gotta say I started off my makeup life hating cream shadows but I’ve evolved considerably because now I can’t get enough of them. They are simple to apply in the morning when you’re in a rush, they wear well, and they offer a super easy to do look in seconds.
All these things contributed to my curiosity about the mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow as it wasn’t only offering me an easy to use cream shadow but also a liner all in one compact.
These come in a small circle compact that features a mirror and a flip top closure which keeps the product fresh and soft. I appreciated the extra airtight lid they included with this however it doesn’t technically work but get to that in a second.
These come in five shade selections and are $10 each. I question the value here considering you can get five times the product size in a MAC Paint Pot or three times the size in a Fluidline for $15-$17.50 each. Granted, you are getting both a shadow and a liner all in one here but the size of 0.04 oz is considerably smaller at $10 when you can spend $15 and get a Fluidline which will act as both a shadow and a liner if you so please at the size of 0.1 oz.
Size and pricing aside I find the product is actually a one trick pony. It has a nice, creamy blendable formula that creates a nice pigmented wash of color over lids however the lining action isn’t as nice as it applies a tad patchy and dries down to a flakier finish on my lash line. I find the shadow wear decently long but primer is necessary to keep these from creasing. I like the effect of the shadow itself as it creates a rather nice eye look quickly and easily however the fact that I can’t multitask it as a liner takes away from the overall value and quality of the product.
I purchased these in two of the five shades. I purchased Exposure which is a matte, rich chocolate bronze and a lighter, bronze-y, metallic brown and Iconic which is a shimmering olive green and a pale, shimmering gold. I appreciate the way they paired these up as each shade selection has a nice contrasting shades as brands are guilty of creating strange duos on occasion but thankfully these had a little thought that went into them.
Although these are sealed with an extra air tight trap they still harden rather quickly. You can mix a little water or toner into them to regain some of the freshness but in my opinion you really shouldn’t have to do that.
Sadly, mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow has some potential but the negatives outweigh the positives here and in the end they just aren’t worth the haul in my opinion.
