Faulty Too Faced Lockdown Ultimate Creaseless Cream Tube
During my first visit to Sephora at Ion Orchard, I was excited to see Too Faced Lockdown Ultimate Creaseless Creams, coloured versions of the brand’s well-loved eyeshadow primer, Shadow Insurance (sometimes known as TFSI). I bought Bondage, a useful shimmery beige that I could use all over or as a base. However, I was dismayed to find the tube gaping at the end when I reached home.
The sealed end had come clean apart, revealing the tube’s creamy contents.
This faulty packaging is probably an anomaly. The staff at Sephora replaced my open tube with a new one that doesn’t look like it has an inclination to split open. Nevertheless, do check your Lockdown tubes before purchase.
Incidentally, the plastic tube of Shadow Insurance, though narrower and longer, is similar to that of the Lockdowns – its material and sealed end are the same. Yet this hasn’t happened to any of my TFSI tubes (thankfully!).
