Maybelline’s Cool Crush Color Tattoo cream shadow

There's a little bit of color-shifting in this shadow, but not a whole lot. The range is between silver/grey, pale purple, and medium-light blue. Application is a little tricky, and I don't know if that's because these summer shades are all less pigmented than the core Color Tattoo shades, or if it's because of the near-frost finish. (Any MAC paint pot with a frost finish gave people trouble with application, so that may carry over here as well.) I got best results when I would lightly pat this on, instead of sweeping it across my lid.
