This eyeshadow looks ultra smooth and stays put for hours without creasing or pulling the delicate eye area. I use it with MAC's Fix+. It can be mixed with clear lip-gloss, clear mascara, and clear nail polish to add pigment to lips, eyelashes and nails! Very Versatile and I love the color I received via ipsy. The color in the picture is Bronze.
These are great! I feel like the metallics are better wet, but when used dry, they add a very nice sparkle. The lady at the counter tried to tell me that these don't need primer. NOT TRUE. You should always use primer with these. But overall, nice coverage, blend fairly well, and very pigmented. I'm impressed!
If you love shimmer...
I went though a phase where I loved shimmery makeup, and these were perfect and beautiful for that. I'll also mention that these last forever! they could be used in it's natural form as a shadow or turned into a cream, even a nail polish! which is what I'll probably end up doing with them since I still have them and haven't used them in a while.
I've tried the foundation, blush, bronzer andeyeshadows. All have some kind of shimmer due to the mica, I have nothing bad to say about any of them. except that I've grown out of my shimmery phase :(
Not shocked & Not disappointed!
Personally I am starting to loose interest in this companies products. As a professional make up artist you want products that 1. will last, 2. will be highly pigmented, & 3. not wipe off when blending. I bought a good $200 worth of loose pigments from Micabella & I was disappointed with the out come I have used them with water & with out personally the difference isn't a big deal. Yes it comes out metallic like but that doesn't change the fact that you are not getting a high pigmented performance.
Now I did experiment with the loose shadows by adding clear lip gloss to make a custom lipstick for my "Green Goddess* shoot & it worked nicely when mixing with the gloss. I will now only use my Mica Shadows for lipgloss, lipstick or intense brow shades. Here is an image below from my Green Goddess shoot. xo
I hope the shades work nicely for all of you!
