I have come to learn that if there is one thing I can get from Yardley – it is great value. With regard to great value, this product is definitely the forerunner. The shades make it perfect for creating a matte smoky eye (avoiding the bronzy colour), the bronzy colour adds instant glam when paired with liner and all the other shades worn alone adds a great flush of colour to the lids for a more natural look. I would not recommend using the applicator stick, as it is flimsy and not very useful for blending.
I think the area of skin around my eyes may be oilier than most, as it doesn’t last quite as long on my lids. However, it works for a day at the office, as long as I refresh at lunch time. At this price, you will be hard-pressed to find better.
