Not bad, not great
on 14 July 2011
These eye shadows have a very much more creamy texture than the powder I expected. They are smooth to apply but due to the texture dont seem to achieve the depth and brilliance of collour and coverage that I hoped for, the darker end especially. This also means that the shadow will collect in creases and wear off fairly quickly, especially in heat.
I tried to top up over a shadow and it didnt work at all, just repelled off the powder, so you cant blend it with other shadows either.
On the plus side, its good for someone practising the effect of smokey eyes who doesnt feel confident with a shadow powder and an applicator, and the packaging means it is ace to shove in your bag for touch ups during the day or a night out, taking up little space and noot needing applicators. However, for a more dramatic effect I will be sticking to my powder eyeshadows, definitely.
The darker bronze has a much redder tone to it than the brown in the photo also!
