[purchase] This is, hands down, the easiest eye shadow you’ll ever use – I would even say it’s marginally easier than eye crayons because there’s no skin drag at all. I bought this in my local Superdrug (I think.. might have been Boots) thinking it was an eye crayon, but in fact, it’s a cream to powder applied by a sponge tip.

Maybelline Color Strike

The shade I have is Hustle (50) – a golden tone with accents of bronze and to my eye, a slight khaki edge. It’s so light that you barely feel it going on the lid – and that sponge delivers so well that you’re likely to just need the one swipe if you want a line above your lashes and two to three for a full lid. If it takes you more than five seconds, I’d be surprised.

I finally got back to doing some IGTV yesterday after a long break and showed the application HERE if you want to see (but, really it’s so quick, there is hardly anything to see!). I’m not loving Instagram at the moment – it’s hard, as an older content creator, to find my place there. So, the only thing left to say on Color Strike is that it’s not really an all-day stayer – I needed to top up (once) but in my mind it’s almost like a gloss or lipstick that I’d expect to top up anyway and it’s no more bother or effort than that. It’s £7.99 HERE.
