Eye Majic Instant Eyeshadows... Do They Work Or Not?

I'm not going to lie when I first saw Eye Majic Instant Eyeshadows* on my insta feed I was a little sceptical. I'm not the best at applying eyeshadow (well I don't think I am anyway) so I tend to either wear a very little amount or none at all. I tend to opt for browns, coppers, golds and pink - although pink can sometimes be a bit disastrous and I end up making myself look like I have pink eye and if I opt for a purple-brown shade I end up looking like I've been in a fight, so yep that's great lol. I recently got an email from the PR who look after Eye Majic asking if I'd like to try them out for myself and I thought why not? 

Inside each £5.99 box which are available from Amazon you get 5 applicator pairs and the box says that you can get "professional eyes in just 10 seconds". All of the applicator pads have three different shades for your lid, crease and highlight and they're also cruelty-free, paraben free and recyclable. I was sent three different packs to try out for myself. Something I will say straight away is that I really appreciate the fact that Eye Majic have loads of different colours to choose from so there's definitely something for everyone no matter your age, skin tone etc.

Above - Shade: 21
Above: Shade - 57

I was sent the shade 57 which contains a light, medium and dark brown which I really liked the look of for an everyday kind of look. I was also sent the shade 21 which looks like it's going to give you more of a purple shade but once I blended it out I found it looked more of a bronzed-purple shade (kind of weird but I also really like how it turned out) and the final shade I was sent is 12 which I'm still yet to try. Shade 12 is definitely the most vibrant out of the colours I was sent with a pink shade being the main colour. 


For my first attempt I tried the Shade 21 pack and it didn't go too bad which I was shocked about to be honest. To apply you just raise your eyebrow to flatten the surface and then press the applicator against your eyelid whilst applying some comfortable pressure, swipe across slightly and then blend in. The video tutorial does say to use the applicator to blend out any harsh lines or user errors but I just used my blending brush which kind of made the colours all blend together but you could see the other colours peeking through which I think looked really nice. I also didn't have any issue with fallout with both of the shade packs I've tried so far. I even applied the Instant Eyeshadows before putting my base on which I never do because I was so sure I would most likely have some fallout to deal with.  


I think once you get the hang of it, it's super quick and easy to do and I think they are great if you're in rush, going to a festival, or if you struggle with eyeshadow application (like myself) and I could see these working for people with disabilities who struggle with using brushes and things like that. I also think you could easily blend the shadows in with your index finger if you wanted to because they are super smooth and almost creamy. 

Shades: 21 (top) and 12 (bottom)

I have seen mixed reviews floating about but I personally think these are great and coming from someone who is pretty useless with eyeshadow application, that's got to mean something... right?! I like how they are available to buy from Amazon and they are also available on Prime so you can get them the next day if you needed them ASAP. I also think they are affordable at £5.99 per pack of 5 pairs which makes them just over £1 per pair. One thing I will say is that Eye Majic claim that you can use each applicator pair for up to 3 times but I think they're more of a single use product if you want to get an even, vibrant eyeshadow look but other than that I can definitely say that I'm a fan and I shall be buying some more shade options in the near future.
