Transforming low pigmentation
I picked up a few of these Fresh Mineral shadows on clearance and was totally underwhelmed. Dry, hard, no pigmentation. I had no use for them, until I found Thermal. Check it out.
Here is another example using the recently released E.L.F Disney Villain Palettes which suffered a serious lack of pigmentation.
I picked up a few BFTE blue glittery shadows recently that we unremarkable over primer, but look great wet. I wondered how they would look over Thermal.
So we've seen how Whip Hand Eye Creme in Thermal can overcome a lack of pigmentation. So what does it do for great shadows? Here are my Whip Hand Loose Pigments swatched over Thermal.
How does it work with Mattes?
The only reservation I had about the product was using this with a matte shadow. Since there is gold sparkle deposited on the lid, I was afraid it would conflict with mattes. Here is what happens.
Application and Blending
Thermal comes in hand poured 3oz pans that fit all standard palettes. It is easy to use, work the product with you finger to warm it up, this makes it easy to apply across the lid. With more pigmented Eye Cremes like Corset, I apply the shadow with my finger and buff it a bit with a brush. With Thermal you can skip the buffing, since it applies transparent. A little goes a long way so a pan is going to last.
The final thing that takes this product from amazing to legendary is the ability to blend shadows after placing them over Thermal. Earlier I mentioned how hard it was to blend shadows used over Pixie Epoxy. In my experience, once that shadow hit the Epoxy, it is locked in place and nothing short of brute force or an act of God is going to blend it. A few times I glued my eyelid to my brow bone, which is always attractive. Thermal is the exact opposite. It grabs the color, it pulls out the shimmer, shift and nuance just like Epoxy, but you can still move the shadow around. I never feel like my color is in lock down. You can blend and soften the color as needed, in most cases, without losing the complexity the product provides.
Even with this flexibility, it keeps your shadow in place, free of fading and wandering. I love using this under my eye since it keeps my lower lid shadow from migrating onto my cheeks. I can't say this product leaves me entirely crease proof, but it is close. I still use Too Faced Shadow Insurance under Thermal to combat creasing. If you are prone to creasing, I suggest you do the same. If you have dry lids, not naturally prone to creasing, you are going to be just fine. On it's own, Thermal keeps me 80% crease proof, which for me is good. When used with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, it is 99.9% My color looks exactly the same 8 hours after application. No fade, no crease, no migration.
Do you see why I am in love??!!!!
Whip Hand has over 20 colors of Eye Cremes to choose from, I own four and they all perform just as well as Thermal. But if you would like to try one out and you want something that works under every color and every finish, get Thermal. You will not be disappointed.
