Catrice Eyeshadow Pen in Mermaid It

FYI, I rarely use eye shadow although it is one of the things I enjoyed applying. For purposes of discussion and not for boasting, I really think I am good in applying eyeshadows. (taray!) As in. hahaha If people would mentally correct other people's eyebrows, I would mentally correct eyeshadow blending, color combos. Even fiance knows what a good smokey eyes look because of me. Ganyan tayo eh. hehe Most of the time I bought eyeshadows just because I like the color and this is one of those instances. I bought this eyeshadow pen in a whim when I tested the color. Instantly fell in love with it. The shade is Mermaid it and it looks like a rosy golden copper shade. It was love at first swatch. I find it a bit pricey for 379 pesos. (ang kuripot ko lang talaga). 
In my head, I thought that it could satisfy my lust for the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadows. It did not. :( This eyeshadow pen works well as a base but not on it own. It is really hard to build an even shade. One layer of this eyeshadow pen looks very light especially when blended. When I try to build up the color, it would look uneven and cakey. However, this pen is a very nice eyeshadow base. It makes my eyeshadow pop and looked extra vibrant. It works well on both matte and shimmery shades. It also has very good staying power. It keeps my eye makeup in place the whole day. :) I hope Catrice will release a matte beige color :)
This is how the eyeshadow pen looks on my lid with UD Naked 3 in Buzz. 
Will I repurchase? Definitely Not. Will I keep using it? Yes!!!! 

Hope you will share what is your newest drugstore find?
