    Would suggest using an eyeshadow primer under it for longevity too. Good idea, esp with the powder!

    Hey, it lasts pretty long but if it comes in contact with water it will rinse away :)

    Hi there!
    How much do you estimate it could last? Could resist showers or rain like the Henna tattoos? Nice idea!
