MeMeMe Review Week*: Dew Pots in Willow Whisper

Monday, June 22, 2015

Hello ladies, 
a little later then expected, I'm bringing you the last review of the MeMeMe week. I'll be sharing my thoughts about their Dew Pots rich colour eye defining creams, which I was really excited about as I love cream eyeshadows.
I also can't believe this is my 300th blog post! I won't lie, I do feel a bit proud for sticking with blogging for so long. But enough ramble, let's get into the review.

Pozdravljene punce, 
danes, sicer malce kasneje kot načrtovano, zaključujem z MeMeMe tematskim tednom. Zadnji izdelek, ki ga bom ocenila je njihovo kremno senčilo Dew Pot. 
Upam, da vam je bil ta tematski teden všeč, in da ste uživale ob prebiranju ocen.

Dew Pots rich colour eye defining creams are perfect for adding an on-trend splash of colour to your look all year round. The dew pots rich colour defining cream can be built up to create a heavy block colour on the eye or can used to delicately line the eyes. 
There are 9 shades available (7 on Moja Drogerija), you get 3ml / 0.10 fl.oz. of product and they retail for 11,21€ on Moja Drogerija and £7.25 on MeMeMe.

Dew Pots so dolgoobstojna kremna senčila za veke. Uporabiš jih lahko samostojno ali v kombinaciji s senčili v kamnu ali prahu.
Na voljo je 9 odtenkov, od tega 7 preko Moje Drogerije, kjer boste za 3ml izdelka odštele 11,21€.

The product comes in a tiny glass jar that has their signature matte black lid. The opening is quite small, but still big enough for you to get to the product with a brush or with your finger.
Compared to some other cream eyeshadows that I own, this one has the least amount of product, and for that I do think the price could be a bit lower. Although I do think that the saying 'a little goes a long way' is definitely true with this product.
The consistency of this Dew Pot is softer & more moussey than with Maybelline Color Tattoos, but not as much as with the Max Factor Excess Shimmers. It's just somewhere down the middle, and this is one of the things I really like about it.
I got the shade Willow Whisper which looks like a warm, rich, shimmery brown with taupe & bronze undertones. On my eyes it looks a lot more taupe than it does swatched on my hand or in the pot, but I actually really like that.
I would say it has a metallic finish and it looks very sparkly & reflective on the eyes, without having any chunky glitters in it.

Kremno senčilo se nahaja v prikupnem majhnem lončku, ki je steklen in ima zanje značilen mat črni pokrovček. Odprtina izdelka je kar majhna, a vseeno dovolj velika, da do izdelka pridemo s čopičem ali pa tudi s prstom.
V primerjavi z nekaterimi drugimi kremnimi senčili vsebuje Dew Pot najmanj izdelka, zaradi česar bi tudi cena lahko bila malce nižja. Je pa tudi res, da za dosego intenzivne barve potrebujemo le majhno količino senčila.
Tekstura tega senčila je mehkejša in bolj ''moussey'' kot pri Maybelline Color Tattoo-jih, a ne tako mehka in ''mokra'' kot tekstura pri Max Factor Excess Shimmer. Je ravno nekje na sredini, kar je meni zelo všeč.
Jaz sem dobila odtenek Willow Whisper, ki je bogat rjav odtenek s ''taupe'' in bronzastimi podtoni, a na mojih očeh izgleda veliko bolj ''taupe'' kot v sami embalaži ali na swatch-u na moji roki. Moram priznati, da mi je tako tudi veliko bolj všeč.
Ima metalik finiš, in na očeh izgleda zelo svetlikajoče, kljub temu da ne vsebuje velikih bleščic.

My favourite way to apply it is with a flat synthetic brush like the Makeup Revolution PRO 1989 Double-ended eyeshadow brush or with the brushes from UD Naked palettes.
For I quick & easy every day look, I first apply the eyeshadow all over my lid and then use a big, fluffy brush to blend out the harsh edges. If I feel like doing something more, I like to pair it with a darker matte eyeshadow in my crease and with a light, sparkly one in my inner eye corners.
This cream eyeshadow is nicely pigmented and easy to build up, if you want a really intense wash of colour. Since it doesn't set immediately, it's also really easy to blend.
One downside of it for me, is that it starts to crease on me /disappears from my crease after a few hours (2-3hr usually) even if I prime my eyes with the UD Primer potion, which never happens (you can see how this looks on the last photo in the collage above). Mateja experienced a similar thing with the Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Bronze.
But I did find a way around this problem, I just need to use another eyeshadow on top of it in my crease, and I do this every time I want Willow Whisper to stay put all day long.
I still need to try using it as an eyeliner though.

Moj najljubši način nanosa tega kremnega senčila je z ravnim, sintetičnim čopičem, kot so npr. tisti iz UD Naked palet, ali pa Makeup Revolution PRO 1989 čopičem
Za hiter in enostaven vsakdanji izgled nanesem senčilo na celotno veko, nato pa uporabim večji in mehkejši čopič za zabrisovanje le-tega. Če pa želim bolj celovit izgled, pa v gubi veke uporabim še temnejše mat senčilo v kamnu, v čisto notranjem kotičku oči pa še eno svetlejše sečilo.
Willow Whisper je lepo pigmentiran odtenek, ki se ga da zlahka nadgraditi, če želite dobiti tisti pravi metalik izgled. Ker se ne posuši čisto takoj, se ga zlahka tudi zabriše.
Edini minus pri tem izdelku je, da kljub uporabi UD Primer Potion po parih urah (ponavadi čez 2-3 ure) zaide v gubo oz. kar izgine, in se ohrani le na spodnjem delu veke (to lahko vidite na zadnji fotografiji zgornjega kolaža). To me je res presenetilo, saj se mi to z uporabo tega primerja še nikoli ni zgodilo, sem pa prebrala podobno izkušnjo pri Mateji z Max Factor Excess Shimmer v odtenku Bronze.
Vendar sem našla tudi čisto preprosto rešitev tega problema; v sami gubi moram to kremno senčilo nadgraditi še s senčilom v kamnu. S tem dosežem, da kremno senčilo ostane na svojem mestu čez cel dan.

I was also curious to see if I already have a very similar shade in my 'cream eyeshadow collection', but I was happy to find out that I don't.
Above is a swatch comparison between the shades that I thought could kinda be similar to it; KIKO Long-lasting stick eyeshadow in 05 Rosy Brown, Max Factor Excess Shimmer in 20 Copper, MeMeMe Dew Pots in Willow Whisper, Maybelline Color Tattoo in 35 One and one bronze, and Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeshadow paint in 006 Rich Russet.

All in all, I found myself another gorgeous cream eyeshadow. I love the consistency of it and I absolutely adore the shade itself, as I think it's the perfect every day shade that makes my eyes pop.

Ko sem pripravljala fotografije za to objavo, me je tudi zanimalo, če se v moji zbirki kremnih senčil že nahaja kakšen podoben odtenek, a sem z veseljem ugotovila, da takšega odtenka še nimam. Sem pa zato podobne odtenke zbrala na kupu, da lahko še vi vidite primerjavo med njimi.
Od leve proti desni so; KIKO Long-lasting stick senčilo v odtenku 05 Rosy Brown, Max Factor Excess Shimmer v odtenku 20 Copper, MeMeMe Dew Pots Willow Whisper, Maybelline Color Tattoo 35 One and one bronze, in Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeshadow paint v odtenku 006 Rich Russet.

MeMeMe Dew Pot v odtenku Willow Whisper je nedvomno krasen dodatek k moji zbirki kremnih senčil. Sama sem najbolj navdušena nad odtenkom samim, saj gre za popolen vsakdanji odtenek, ki se krasno poda k moji barvi oči. Poleg tega pa mi je zelo všeč tudi sama tekstura izdelka.
Seveda pa gre ogromna zahvala Anji, saj brez nje testiranje teh izdelkov ne bi bilo mogoče!

Have you tried the MeMeMe Dew Pots? What's your favourite cream eyeshadow?

  4. Odtenek je res krasen. <3 Me ima, da bi katerega sprobala. Na splošno se mi zdi MeMeMe dokaj spregledana znamka, tako da hvala za lepo predstavitev. Bo v pomoč pri sestavi WL. :D

    1. Meni se tudi zdi, da so kar spregledana znamka. Tudi sama vem, da sem dostikrat jih kar zanemarila ko sem pregledovala Mojo Drogerijo :)
      Hvala :)
