It’s the Creasing with Too Faced Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow in Cop a Teal That Makes Me Blue

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

One of my favorite things about makeup is how we’re not just allowed to let our moods, whims and temporary obsessions influence our color choices and techniques; we’re actually encouraged to. Heck, that’s a big part of the whole shebang, and along those lines, I’ve been feeling blue…

Not blue in a bad way. Just blue.

I don’t really know why or what triggered it, but for some reason I’ve been liking blue even more than usual, especially blue eyeshadows, which is why I had sky high hopes for $18 Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow in Cop a Teal, one of 12 shades from Too Faced Cosmetics.



But maybe I set my expectations a little too high. It being such a pretty peacock blue, and so pigmented, too, I was disappointed to see it crease as much as it does. Not even NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base really helps.

I do like the color, though, so I think I’ll keep trying to find a way to make it work.

Hmm… Any ideas?

    Boo on the creasing. This kind of looks like a darker version of MAC Tilt, which didn’t do enough for me. I was rooting for Cop a Teal. :(

  2. Ariana says:

    Aww that was such a pretty color, shame it creases.

  3. It IS pretty! Try using it as a liner :)

  4. i don’t think it’s too much to ask for an eyeshadow to not crease. that’s too bad as it’s such a gorgeous colour!

    Oh no @ the creasing! That’s a shame. Is it horrible, that I still want to try this for myself?

    ohnoeesss! :/

    that sux that it creases. maybe double prime – nars smudgeproof + a benefit creaseless cream or paintpot. it might help!

    That’s such a shame that is creases; the color is so beautiful. I wonder if it would crease on me… At least Sephora has an awesome return policy!

    did you set it with a powder? people often overlook doing that for creme shadows for some reason…a creme formula always demands a good powder set :)

    What a shame it creases even with a primer! The color is gorgeous!

    Sadness. I’m surprised that Too Faced would have such creasy shadow.

    I swear by Bare Escentuals Prime Time. It’s the bomb! UD and Nars primers didn’t work for me, I think it was the silicone. BE wears like iron. No shadows crease on me with this stuff and I have super oily lids.

  13. Beverly says:

    Have you tried any of the Urban Decay eyeshadow primers?

    • Karen says:

      I have! Eden is my favorite. Maybe I’ll try layering it beneath this…

      What primer are you using right now?

      • Beverly says:

        At the moment I am using MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl. I am really planning to soon try UD eyeshadow primers AND Two Faced eyeshadow primers to see how they hold up.

  14. marisol says:

    Maybe try a different shadow primer such as Too Faced. If not, try it as a lower lash liner.

    • Karen says:

      I tried it with Too Faced Lemon Drop and it still creased (sigh).

      Great idea to use it as a lower lash liner… I’ll probably end up doing that.

  15. Citrine says:

    The packaging of this is so cute, reminds me of Mary Quant…

  16. Isabel says:

    Hi
    Have you tried the glitter glue from Too Faced?

  17. Phyrra says:

    Oh that sucks! I was going to buy this color. I picked up Poison Orchid and it doesn’t crease on me, but I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance as my primer.

      I tried it with the Lemon Drop Shadow Insurance and it didn’t work for me. :( I really wanted to love it, too!

      • Phyrra says:

        I haven’t tried TF glitter glue, but I do have Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and Sobe Botanicals Stick it, both of which work really well for glittery shadows. I haven’t tried the Lemon Drop (though I have tried the Candlelight). How disappointing, because that’s such a gorgeous color.

        • Karen says:

          Thanks for weighing in on those two products, Phyrra! Adding both to my list.

          Yeah, I’m still really in love with this color. I’ll probably end up using it as a liner.

          • Beverly says:

            At the moment, I use MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl. It works for me now, but I want to try UD shadow primers soon!

  18. KaylaK says:

    Yeah I have one of Too Faced’s new shadows, I have the one called “Petals to the Metal” it’s like a more exotic Mac Club. It’s this brown, green, blue mix w/ multi-color glitter…but anyway enough of my rambling lol. I tried this eyeshadow out too, love the color but it creased on me even w/ Urban Decay primer potion and nothing creases when I use that stuff! : / I need to play w/ it some more and maybe layer a paint pot on top of the UDPP and see if it helps..but yeah feel your pain too lol.

    • Karen says:

      Whew! I’m glad to know that I’m not going crazy… for a while there I was starting to wonder if I was the only one!

      I’m going to do some experimenting over the weekend with some Benefit Creaseless Creams and Paint Pots. Let me know if you find a combo that works! :)

  19. Mary says:

    It is such a pretty colour. Too bad about the creasing. Hopefully you’ll find a combination of this and a primer that works. Gorgeous hues like this should be worn and worn for hours! :)

    Hehe, the name of the shadow made me giggle.

    I think this color is amazing in real life and I had no pigmentation issues. However, it wasnt the most flattering on my skintone so I passed..

    I bought Cop a Teal yesterday and wore it with Tarte Firmitol eye primer. It stayed on from 2pm to 11pm when I removed it in the shower without creasing. It even made it through 45 minutes on the treadmill.

    Try the Tarte primer. I swear by it.
