About a month ago, I came across a company on twitter called Majic Beauty Inc, and they were tweeting about one of their products called “eyeMajic” claiming it was the world’s quickest and easiest eye shadow to apply. I was intrigued so I sent them a tweet saying “Wow what an interesting product,” well they replied back and through a brief twitter “conversation” they were kind enough to send me some free samples.
I received the following:
Eye Majic Instant Eye Shadow in Pearl Finish
Eye Majic Instant Eye Shadow in Leopard Print
Eye Majic Instant Eye Shadow in Matte Finish
1Close your eyelids then raise your eyebrow to give a flat surface for better application. Using both hands hold the Eye Majic applicator on the base of the eyelid for approx 4 seconds.
2Then by applying comfortable pressure, slide the applicator across your eyelid in the appropriate direction to achieve a sharp look.
3To achieve a different look you can apply a second applicator of a different color over the existing eye shadow to achieve a unique style.
The point of this product is to basically be able to swipe on the shadow and have an instant eyeshadow perfectly applied to your lid. Upon first trying this product, I definitely had a hard time achieving a flawless look simply because the instructions state to "slide the applicator across your eyelid" however when I did that it created a mess! Luckily each packet comes with 2 sets of shadows therefore I was able to practice a bit more, and I found that by simply pressing the shadow down on the lid then lifting up created a better look.
I tried different techniques to see how I can achieve a perfect look "on the go," one technique was blending the shadows with a brush, but the shadow ended up disappearing, even with a primer. I couldn't blend anything in to lessen the harsh lines, because when I did try to blend the product in, the shadow seemed to disappear. One tip is to avoid blending it really does nothing but wipe away the product.
The only shadow set that came out a little bit better was the leopard print, because there was no need to blend since the design is there as you swipe the product on; however the design is definitely not something I would wear on a daily basis.
The swatches above were done on a flat surface (my arm) however when applied on a curvier surface (like eyelids) the process is not as simple and not as perfect compared to when applied on a flat surface.
Overall I don't know if I would call it the world's quickest and easiest eye shadow to apply simply because I had such a hard time trying to make the shadow appear flawless and natural. However, I do think this is a great concept, and with a little bit of practice I think you could ultimately achieve a close to flawless look.
