Danessa Myricks Bae, Eternal, Lust Twin Flames Pigments Critiques & Swatches

Bae

Danessa Myricks Bae Twin Flames Multichrome Pigment ($26.00 for 0.085 oz.) had a transparent base chocked full of multichromatic larger shimmer and fine sparkle that shifted between lavender, mint green, chartreuse, and gold with a shiny, sparkling finish.

As a layering product or as an all-over wash of product, it works, but it’s nowhere near as pigmented as marketed. I was able to get medium to semi-opaque coverage as “best results” when applied with a separate, flat brush, but it was a creamier, more fluid formula that wanted to be spread out in order to dry down and set fully.

Once the product set, it was wore well for 10 hours (when I removed it) and wasn’t prone to creasing or flaking. If I tried to blend out the edges once it was set, there were a few stray sparkles that flaked off.

Formula Overview

They’re supposed to have “high pigment” in “one swipe” with “no creasing, no fallout, and no streaks” in a liquid form. The brand says to “apply directly with the applicator,” though I greatly disagree with that. I preferred to pick up product with a brush off of the applicator or to swipe the product on the back of my hand, and then pick up product with a brush or fingertips.

The application was very streaky to work with and often over-applied product, and if one applied too much of a shade, it often looked particularly uneven–both in the coverage but also in the physical thickness/texture of the product (it would be more prone to emphasizing lid texture). The lighter shades sometimes were sheerer, while the more black-based shades seemed more intense and were easier to use as a full-on lid color.

In general, the more white-based or translucent-based shades were better as a wash of color or layered over something else. I wouldn’t call them “high pigment” in most instances.

The consistency was fluid, lightweight, and somewhat thin with moderate creaminess. There was enough slip that if one over-applied, it could pull into fine lines as it set, so I always made sure to buff and blend the product a bit (especially along my inner lid area) just before it set. This was particularly noticeable when I tried to use it on my lower lash line, and I had better luck applying and sheering it out with a pencil brush for a more even dry down.

It blended out decently along the edges but I’d likely use a powder eyeshadow to blend and soften the edges (either before/after or both from applying this product). They had a quick dry down and set to a lightly tacky, but fairly transfer-resistant finish. It was was a little clingy, but it did not feel heavy on.

They lasted between nine and 10 hours on me before creasing slightly, but I didn’t have issues with fallout, flakiness, etc. over time.

As a note, I did detect a more noticeable scent to the product, not added fragrance but from the formula itself, though I didn’t notice it during wear.

Everlasting

Danessa Myricks Everlasting Twin Flames Multichrome Pigment ($26.00 for 0.085 oz.) had a transparent base with multichromatic shimmer and sparkle that shifted between warmer lavender, yellow, chartreuse, and pale green paired with a sparkling, metallic finish with a fair amount of shine.

The texture was lightweight, creamy, and very fluid–thin but substantial–and tended to spread further out than stay precisely where placed. This resulted in coverage being more medium to semi-opaque, though I could apply a second layer (once the first was dry) to get more opacity but at the expense of a physically thicker, slightly uneven application of product.

I could see it working better layered over another product or applied with a fluffy brush or fingertip as more of a wash of sparkle and multichromatic shift, but I struggled to get the level of opacity shown in the promo photos. It stayed on nicely for over 10 hours without creasing or fading.

Lust

Danessa Myricks Lust Twin Flames Multichrome Pigment ($26.00 for 0.085 oz.) had a transparent base with multichromatic sparkle that shifted between darker, orange-peach to pink-peach to sunshine yellow. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer of product, though the consistency had enough fluidity to it that I felt like it was more prone to applying and blending out to more semi-opaque coverage.

The fluidness made it easier to apply as a sheer wash of color as well as to use fingertips or brushes to apply, so in some ways, it was versatile, but it took a few uses of the formula to figure out what worked best for me. I liked to apply it with a separate brush as a thinner layer and then build up if necessary.
