Swatch: The Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow in Bronze Brown

by Roxanne C.

The Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow is all pretty, convenient, shimmery and versatile rolled into one. It’s a shadow pencil with a sponge applicator at the end, which springs into action when the cap is unscrewed. To apply, simply use it as you would a normal crayon eyeliner, and dip the pen into the cap to get more colour as and when needed. I recently took a plane to France and this was in my little makeup pouchette.


My current tiny makeup pouchette from Harrods, London.

What’s in that cap?

I like this eyeshadow product because it’s really easy to use and the colour is the type of shimmery bronze that I wear a lot. The sponge tip doesn’t allow for very precise application, as it’s meant to be used more as a smudger. The eyeshadow is also meant to be used more as an eyeliner than shadow. It also doesn’t cost much – less than S$20. The only drawback is that it doesn’t last long enough, and it creases during the day, so you’ll have to reapply it every now and then. I’d suggest using a primer beforehand, but for a product that’s meant to be convenient, I’d say just save the hassle.
