After I did my Sleek Acid Palette swatch post yesterday, I created a simple look using a few of the shadows but I haven't had a chance to post it til now.
I decided on a simple look only using 3 of the shadows because the shadows were pretty difficult to work with. They applied very patchy--even with primer and NYX JEP in Milk, I had a hard time just getting even coverage. I had to pack on the shadows really heavily and every time I tried to blend, they would just disappear. I ended up having to do a ton of spot touch ups with additional primer and shadow applied with my ELF small precision brush. I gotta say, though, when I was out I had tons of people oohing and aahhing over this look and asking me where on earth I got such bright shadows...the compliments were nice but were they worth the pain in the ass application? Still trying to decide...
(btw yes I am wearing my fuzzy pink bathrobe with froggies all over it. I didn't mean for it to coordinate with my hair/makeup lol but I kinda like the effect...

Do you think the application hassle is worth it if the color of the product in question is freaking off the hook?
