Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
It has a smooth application of an ethereal blue shimmer for the first swipe. The multidimensional pearls that reflect the light at every turn do give it a lilac/blue shift that is beautiful. It is buildable, with a second layer giving more opaque pigment, but if not done at the right stage of drying it can just smear the first layer away with the second like how dry-erase markers will erase itself. It cleans off without too much work as well. The applicator brush is not really useful if you were to do your own liner with it, but definitely works for all-over eyelid coverage.
I was excited to have eyeshadows in cool-toned colors (got "baby bunny" "spirit guide, and "fairies are real") and the shimmer finish was what I looked forward to. Unfortunately, Doni apparently doesn't know the difference between "shimmer" and "glitter" because this is full on GLITTER. So why call it "shimmer"? The name's incredibly misleading and whoever was the reviewer who called these "subtle" and "shimmer" is blind. They're beautiful and durable and the packaging is beautiful but I bought "shimmer eye paints" expecting SHIMMER not sparkle.

I liked this product and used it for a recent party. It goes on very nicely but I did find that it wasn't as pigmented as I would have liked. I needed to use multiple coats to get a true shade. Other than that I liked this.

The Chromaddiction shimmer was great for the shimmer I needed when I want to shine. It was easily applied and didn't slip off during the day/night and when I was sweating. I was not over powering and was something I would definitly recommend.

This comes out beautifully and blends so so so well! I would just say if you have dry eye or Sjogrens proceed with caution - I have Sjogrens and my eyes couldnt tolerate this formula.

The colors looked soooo beautiful in the store - so i bought a couple! I realllllyyyy wanted to like this, but theyre completely unwearable. The product wouldnt dry down on my lids and became a slippery, patchy mess. They also didnt apply nearly as evenly on the lids. Super disappointing.

Chromaddiction Shimmer eyeshadow and eyeliner looks amazing. Colors change when you turn according to light surrounding you. Great sparkling shine. Very easy to apply with the built in lid applicator which also can be used for just lining the eyes.

I'm in love with this eye product. It's a gorgeous shade with beautiful glitter all throughout. You can go all out with it or make it a more subtle everyday look. I've gotten many compliments on it. I'd definitely repurchase.

Got this for my wife to wear at a party. It looks fantastic on her. The packaging feels extremally high quality and so is the product itself. It's real easy to apply and last for a good amount of time.

I wore this to a music festival recently. It did crease a little bit in my eyelid but honestly I've never met a product that doesn't. Seemed to last well despite all my dancing and sweating and I love the purple color with my green eyes.

I've never felt so amazing while using a product. The quality is amazing and the staying power is on point while a night out in the club dancing all night. The shimmer and reflectiveness of this is amazing!!

Half Magic Chromaddiction Shimmer (Fairies Are Real) is very shimmery and allows for buildable opacity--from extremely sheer to fully opaque. It comes out a bit thick/goopy so I think of it more as watery cream than liquid. The wand applicator was a bit hard to remove from the bottle at first, and I even wondered if I damaged the applicator cause it was bent. Either the wand is too long for the bottle or the bent is intentional. The applicator itself is good enough for general coverage, but not for precision. Color/shimmer lasted during the time I wore it. As I predicted, it wasn't smudge/transfer proof (but I did not use primer or setting spray). However, that made for easy removal with just facewash and water.

I love the color of this chromaddiction shimmer by Half Magic. The packaging is slim, chic and I love that I can see the shade color. The shimmer color looked vibrant, but when applying, it really wouldn't apply vibrant. I would try to build it up but the color stayed on my finger instead! It looked better on my finger than on my eyelid. This may have worked better with a good eyelid primer, but I didn't have one on hand. It works so much better as an eyeliner.

I received the shade fairies are real which is a blue color, it's a really pretty color but not a color that looks so good on me. I also found it difficult to apply and the eyeshadow can be irritating to sensitive eyes.

I received Half Magic Chromaddiciton Shimmer in exchange for my honest opinion. I absolutely love this product. This eyeshadow is beautiful !! I love how light and easily it blends into my eyelids. The color is so beautiful, reminds me of a mermaid glow. It feels super light and not heavy at al all. It's not sticky either. It leaves a subtle shimmer that lasts a really long time. I can't wait to try the other shades!

This is such a beautiful color. I am absolutely in love. This is so easy to apply and helps create the cutest designs. My tween daughter has been begging for this brand for ages since she saw them on TikTok and was SO excited that she was able to get this. I would 10/10 recommend this to anyone who is interested in makeup.

I got the chromaddiction half magic adornment tweezers and it looks so cool. It comes in a yellow sleeve that is super cute. This tweezers help apply the crystals for an easier and precise look. It has rhinestone gripping.

The second I got this, I was obsessed with the packaging. I'm also a huge lover of purple, so I didn't really want to put it away and kept it out for a little while so I could look at it. The product itself I really love as well, I didn't want to do much makeup one day but wanted to try it out, and this can absolutely be blended out to be more of a natural look, making it very versatile!

This product is a very pretty color, and is ideal for getting dressed up for a party but not for day to day use. I liked the shimmer. Would recommend for someone who is looking for extra shimmer and sparkle.

The shimmering eye paint makeup applies on the skin very smoothly and does not irritate the skin. It makes the costume a stand out and compliments it very well. I would definitely recommend this for a touch of shine

I have been waiting for the perfect time to use this and my husband decided to take me to a rodeo yesterday.. hey this is a highlighter and it gives the most beautiful, shiny look!! I think this is my new favorite product, but I will continue to use it as a highlighter!!

Received this item as a free sample in exchange for honest reviews. It is a very nice eye shimmer for a party. I also used it as face paint for a simple heart. It makes me a shiny girl specially under the light.
Pri22 from Miami
I absolutely loveeeeee this color! Pigmented and easy to put on. A little goes a long way and definitely makes sure that you layer to get the best results. I have never heard of this brand before but I can't wait to explore more of the brand

Tried this on my eyelids and wasn't very impressed. It is extremely sticky—almost tacky. Plus, the application isn't smooth. When done, my eyelids were sticking together after blinking. Color is pretty though.
Jensi from Virfinia
This shimmer eyeliner can be put on all over the eyes like and eye shadow or as an eyeliner. I used it as an eye shadows, and got lots of compliments when wearing it. I can say it lasts longer than other liquid eyeliners that I've used. I really like the color.
