What we say:
I like to believe that my judgement is never clouded by a product’s beautiful packaging, but when it comes to this eye shadow, all I can say is “wow!” It is absolutely impossible to ignore the beauty of it – from the embossed powder to the vibrant floral design on the outer case, to me it is the ultimate dressing table accessory, and the perfect gift (although you’ll probably end up keeping it for yourself).
But what makes me even happier is the fact that the actual shadow exceeded my expectations. I like a shadow with a bit of shimmer, and I found that this product contains the most beautiful and delicate shimmering particles. I tried the shade Violet Bloom and despite two of the shades looking very neutral in the compact, they show up beautifully on my skin (bearing in mind that I am very fair). I’ve been using all three shades together – the neutral shade across my lid and extending towards my brow bone, the pink on the outer corners of my eyes and the violet along my eyelid, close to my lash line.
It works well for the office, and on a night out, I simply apply more of the violet shade to create a sultry effect. The only downside to this product is that it is limited edition, so you won’t be able to purchase it for years to come. All the more reason to indulge now, while you still can!
