I love eyeshadow. There’s almost always something new and exciting going on in the eyeshadow ‘field’ of products, and I can almost always generate a reason to try new eyeshadows despite knowing I have nearly every colour out there – if it isn’t a shade, it’s a finish, and if it’s not a finish, it’s a texture!
Lately I’ve been captivated by eyeshadow in two different ways:
1) It comes in pencil form (more on this later)
2) It has a duo-chrome finish
The Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadows all have names pun-ing on famous ROck & Roll groups and songs, and while cheesy, the creamy texture of the product, smooth application, and strong pigmentation more than makes up for the (sometimes) groan-inducing shade names!
010 Look Me in the Ice: A frosty pearlized white
020 Gold n Roses: My favourite shade, a soft pink with gold/green duochrome. I LOVE THIS SHADE. If I owned less eyeshadow I would have bought a back-up.
030 We are the Champagnes: A beautiful gold-champagne, I love this as a lid colour or all on its own.
040 Under Treasure: Old antiqued gold. I was obsessed with this shade in 2012 and it’s still one of my absolute favourite colours to buy (and wear).
050 We’re the Inner Purple: The most disappointing shadow because it applied so patchily, it’s still a beautiful metallic royal purple. I’m pretty sure this is Macnunu‘s dream bridesmaid dress colour, haha.
060 Petal Pan: Petrol blue. Lovely.
The last three shades were more satin than metallic in finish, but they are still lovely.
070 Gold Leaf Me: Khaki Green
080 Mauves Like Jagger: A mauve-purple, this has a silver sheen with the right lighting (which I clearly did not manage to find here)
090 Nougat it Right: Warm chocolate brown. This is the only shade whose inclusion I don’t really understand it but it makes a good crease colour.FOTD featuring 020 Gold n Roses and 090 Nougat it Right. 010 Look me in the Ice in the inner tear duct.
Have you tried any new brands lately? What kind of products peak your interest? 😀
