Happy Sunday to you!
I wasn't sure what to blog about today. I've bought a few bits from e.l.f recently, so I'm sure I'll do a haul about it soon, but both my last posts have been haul types. I also have a wordy/talky post I want to do but I want to put lots of thought into that one.
So I thought I'd talk to you about the Make Up Revolution Awesome Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadows. That's a huuuuuge name.
I'm going to do my usual and apologise for the SHOCKING quality of these photos, basically the lighting was horrendous and it's very difficult to take up-close, detailed photos of your own eye with an iPad and no glasses on! Soooorrrry.
I have the colour Rose Gold and they cost £4 each.
What you do is drop a tiny amount of the liquid primer (which is the mixing medium) into the dish and using your finger, pick up some of the eyeshadow and mix it into the primer.
It takes practice to get the consistency and pigmentation correct. I think I used too much primer because mine was quite thin. Using your finger you apply it straight to your lid. You can also layer it once it's dried to build intensity.
It lasts well and looks very shimmery in the light.
Very shimmery, very pretty.
I do like it, but it's not something you can just throw on in the morning, it takes time. I don't enjoy applying it with my finger either because I don't feel I have enough control and that most of the pigment stays on my finger. That being said I will definitely use it again as I love the way it looks and how long it lasts, I just need some practice. I would recommend it and at only £4, if you don't like it, it's not a huge loss.
Have you tried these out? What did you think of them? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! All my social networks are linked at the top.
Speaks to you soon,
