What is Tess’ take on these eye shadows?
I initially had the chance to try these eye shadows at the Luminato Event. I had the opportunity to get my make-up done by, none other than, Eddie Malter (Official Make-up Artist of L’Oreal Paris in Canada) and he used two colours on me which looked absolutely gorgeous!

A few weeks later, I had the opportunity to test out more of the eye shadows and I saw many beauty bloggers writing posts about it. It was pretty much unanimous – we absolutely loved them!
So, what’s great about these eye shadows?
It’s like a cross between a loose pgiment eye shadow and a cream eye shadow. It is finely milled and it seems as if it has a bit of moisture to keep it in its place. When you open the container, the product is densely packed. It’s not super loose and messy like other pigments. Once applied, there is only a tiny bit of fall-out. It literally feels like it melts to the touch with such a pigmented colour and pearlescent/shimmery sheen. After hours of wear, the eye shadow still looks fresh with no creasing or visible signs of fading.
|See how densely packed it is?|
- Dampen eye shadow brush to intensify the colour or to apply as an eye liner
- To reduce chance of fall-out apply with a patting motion
- Apply eye shadow first before your foundation so you can clean off any fall-out
- If you are wearing lip stick/lip gloss, apply a tiny bit of eye shadow in the centre of your lips to give the illusion of fuller lips

So, does Tess think it lives up to what it claims?
