Subtle Shimmer

Wednesday, 3 February 2016

I really love the packaging of this eye shadow pot! I have the shade 03 Original from the nudes collection, and the round pot has a shimmer to it just like the eye shadow. There is a little mirror on the inside of the lid, great for doing a quick make up check if you are out, not big enough to look in while you apply your make up though obviously. The pot is a great size for your hand bag. There really is something luxurious about the look and feel of this little pot.

Application & Effect
This eye shadow can be applied dry or wet (just dip your brush in water) for a slightly different effect.
Apply DRY for a subtle everyday look: The soft, blendable eyeshadow appears light and luminous.
Apply WET for a more intense and metallic effect to reveal the full intensity of the colour pigments.
This eyeshadow is quite natural on the eyes, even with the sparkle
A little tip I discovered is that because of the nude colour of this eyeshadow you can apply it lightly to your cheekbones for a highlight effect on a night out :)

The sparkle seems to last all day. But because the shade of this eyeshadow is nude its hard to tell if it fades or not. Wet application seems to last longer.

It is a little pricey for a single eyeshadow if you are on a beauty budget but I do think that it will last at least 6-8 months. So you wouldn’t have to repurchase very often.
