Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Maybelline Color Strike Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadow Pen in the shade Spark.
I used to have these kinds of eyeshadows in high school but I haven’t seen one in ages, so when I saw one in Maybelline’s new releases I had to try it.
My everyday look usually includes a shimmery ivory/pink all over the lids so I thought this could be a good option for a quick and easy look.
It comes in 10 shades and you can buy it from Ulta for 8,99$
It is a shimmery champagne colour.
The packaging is a thin and long tube in a hard plastic material. The shade name is written on the side and it matches the colour of the tube. It is really nice and sturdy, I like it.
It has a round and stiff applicator. You basically have the eyeshadow in the cup and everytime you close it you “recharge” the brush.
The formula is very pigmented and despite the shimmer, it doesn’t have much fall out since you pick up such a small amount of product every time you dip.
It’s described as cream to powder but it’s a powder, nothing creamy about it.
It’s not patchy at all.
The applicator allows an easy and precise application and the shadow is easy to blend with the finger.
Since it’s so precise you can’t create every blended look so a lighter shade is easier to work with than a dark one, unless you plan to use it to create a smokey eyeliner, then you’ll love it.
It lasted for 8 hours on me before starting to crease.

I’m so impressed. I love the shade, it’s perfect for every day. It is very easy to use once you get the hang of it and long-lasting. If you are looking for something to use daily that doesn’t break the bank you’ll love it. I would love to try a darker shade as a liner.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
