Tick:Tock Cosmetics: Infinity Eyeshadow Base


I am excited to show you a new base that is an alternative to the NYX JEP!  I was never really a big user of the Jumbo pencils, but i do have a few, and I hated the fact that i could never sharpen them, so i always just melted them into pots.

Tick:Tock Cosmetics is a fairly new mineral makeup company, and they make eyeshadow and these "NYX" dupes.  I got these during their Back Friday sale, at 40% off!!  These retail at $4 each, which honestly, is a great price given the amount you get, so needless to say, i was beyond happy to get these for half that!

Top row: tick Tock
Bottom: NYX JEP

Overall, these bases are amazing,  I tried them as primer and they did last all day on my, with tiny amount of creasing at the end of the night.  I have oily lids and everything creases on me, so this was a pleasant and shocking surprise.

As far as consistency, it is more 'solid' than the JEP, so they are a little harder to blend, but nothing bad at all, perhaps this is what makes them really be long lasting, as opposed to the JEP

Also, the Milky Way is not as 'white' or opaque as nyx, its more off white on the sheer side, but, when swatched, the color did not change at all.  Black Hole is not a super black oily color like nyx, rather, it is a sheer black and not a creamy greasy one; its more like a smokey grey color.

I was very impressed with these bases, or NYX dupes, as they call them. I actually use them almost daily, so thats a plus, and for $4 each? way more product and better quality than NYX :)
