Absolutely it really works! I've used it for both foiling on shimmery mineral eyeshadow and creating eyeliner out of ANY eyeshadow out there. I own five 88 palettes of eyeshadows and can now make eyeliners out of ALL of them. Best part? They do not budge or smear! you can also paint this on over pencil eyeliner so it doesn't move. I've never used it on lip products but I know you can do that as well. It's awesome!
