Pros: Great applicator, cute colors, nice shimmery effect
Cons: Colors aren't very "deep," and tube "spurts" sometimes.
The Bottom Line: This is a must for bargain make-up shoppers.
I don't use much eye make-up; it always creases or rubs off for me, and I just don't have the patience to have to maintain my eyes all day. A girlfriend of mine insisted I buy some new make-up, and I was appalled at how high prices are! I looked for the cheaper brands and stumbled upon Jane, which I had used a little before, but not much.
The Jane section was not only cheaper, but they had a neat little selection of eye make-up, that did not consist solely of little compacts where you lose the brush and the shadow gets cracked and... blah. The Jane section included something I hadn't seen before, called Fabulizers.
The Fabulizers for eyes caught my eyes. They are packaged in a small, clear, plastic tube which you turn the base of to click the color up. It features a soft-tipped applicator- no more losing brushes. I chose the color "Periwink."
When my girlfriend and I had our "make-up party" later in my car, I was surprised... the Fabulizer looked great! Let me start from the beginning of my "fabulous" experience. I clicked the base of the tube a few times and the color didn't come out at first, but then started oozing out suddenly... weird. I used the soft-tipped applicator to put it on my eyes, and my friend oohed and ahhed. She was also surprised. The color was not too thick, but it was there, all right. It was a slightly shimmery purple/pink color that looked, well... fabulous. It wasn't too much, but enough to make you think I was beautiful. Heh. Anyway, the color went on smoothly, and felt a little chilly. That made me nervous at first; I don't like creamy shadows. It dried very quickly, and when I wiped my finger across my eyelid, it did not come off at all and was quite powdery-feeling and dry. Great!
I wore the JaneFabulizer today to work, and after seeing it under several different lighting systems, I am completely pleased. It looks amazing. It's definitely not too much, especially for someone like me, who works in a library, and maintains (mostly by choice while working) a fairly conservative appearance.
What I did not like... The color stayed on my eyes much better than almost any other eyeshadow I've tried, but after a few hours it did seem to fade a bit. The colors are not very deep, which some people who really like to play up their eyes may dislike. However, I can see it being used on top of another color, and I think itd look great. This is a little misleading, because the color you can see in the tube looks a little deeper than what ends up on your eyelids. Also, when I clicked the tube, there was a slight delay before the color came out, and, as I thought it wasn't clicked enough, I clicked it more. This caused the color to "spurt" out, and I had more on the applicator than I wanted. If you use this, keep that in mind- give it a second before clicking it again. Another thing I dislike is you cannot click it backwards, which I do with the Revlon Lipglide/Eyeglide products to keep the color from coming out. I had to check the Fabulizer a few seconds after I finished with it to make sure the color was stopped. The last thing is that it does crease ever so slightly, but it is almost impossible for my eyelids not to cause creases, they are so small.
I would definitely suggest this product to anyone. The color choices are not many (only six) but they are very fun and can be used for "flirty" looks, fashionable but conservative looks, or any look you may want to achieve.
There is not much product in the tube (I think only .065 oz), but for such a cheap price, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.
