Rimmel Stir It Up Cream Eyeshadow

Ulta.com tells us that Stir It Up Eyeshadow is a cream eyeshadow that is comprised of three colors that you "stir" up to make a deep-looking shade. Frankly, when I stirred it up, all I got was a big mess with some huge flecks of glitter. Like the glitter that my kids use at preschool. In pink. It's rather disappointing, really, because the three colors in the pan really look like something I would use. And since I bought something out of the Underground line, I was counting on a bit more glitz than I was used to. But not big huge flakes of glitter. That's just not the look I want during the day. Or ever, really. But the consistency was nice, and it did go on smoothly and evenly, and lasted all day. So perhaps I was overzealous with my stirring. Or I should have used a brush rather than my finger. I'm not ready to write this one off yet, since other Rimmel products I've tried I've been quite happy with. But I wouldn't go get another one of these hoping for a better result just yet.
