Am I Using This Wrong?

I have this in the Northern Lights quad and the colours appear to be really pretty, however when I tried to swatch them they barely appeared on my finger tips! They are lightly shimmery but barely any pigment. Even after trying to apply them to my lids I still couldn't get them to show their true colours, my eyelids just looked naked to be blunt. Perhaps I should try wetting my brush to try and make the colours a little bold. I just found the powder really hard to pick up onto my brushes as if they were packed in there too tight or something. Disappointed but won't give up just yet, will do some more investigating and try some other techniques. Shouldn't have to be so hard though. ..

Just Lovely!

Good eye shadow with buildable colour. I personally don't like eye shadows that go on really dark with one sweep as I find them a little difficult to work with as I always end up with it darker than I wanted! I have this is 'northern lights' which is pinks and mauves. Lovely soft shades. The instructions on the back are also quite helpful! Good staying power that doesn't crease! I would look at purchasing this in other shades.

Value Smokey Eye Look - Mattes, Slight Shimmer & Slight Sparkly

I have this in Mercury Rising which is the colour palette shown in the photo above for this product listing. The white colour (imprinted with the letter 'A' which you can just see if you look carefully in the above photo) is sheer but not too sheer - it shows quite well and it is only slightly shimmery - not over-shimmery which is the way I like it for that one. It makes that wonderful highlighter for just below the centre of the brow. The next one is imprinted with the letter 'B' and it is a sheer silver wash colour with some sparklies to make it cute. Sometimes I just like to only use this one and put it all over my eyelid as it's light but a little sparkly too. The next colour (marked 'C') is a matte medium grey colour which is lovely for a base colour in this colour scheme. That's how I use it anyhow. The last colour is a matte black which can be used heavily or lightly - if used heavily it creates an opaque black effect and if you use it lightly it creates a sheerer black.

I find all these colours really easy to apply except with the black I need to try and be more careful and apply it with a more artistic hand. Once these are blended they are longlasting - especially with a good eye primer - then they last all day.

I love the very high quality opening mechanism which makes it easy with my long (currently long nails!) nails to open this sleek and thin black case. Try this opening mechanism at the shops on the Tester and I think you'll love the way it easily opens and shuts securely too. It's excellent!!

A very handy palette for the current 'in' smokey eye looks! I like the way these colours stay put for hours too. A bargain buy!

Fantastic colours

I love this compact eyes shadow that has the best colours that you can wear everyday. I currently have the 'Gold Mine' palette which has a shimmery cream colour, shimmery gold colour, shimmery dark brown and a matte lighter brown. It already comes with an eyeshadow sponge brush which is so handy for on the go. The gold colour is the perfect and truest gold and the different shades of cream and brown would match any skin tone. My favourite colour in the 'Gold Mine' palette is the matte brown and it looks perfect for casual day, even by itself. I think the 'Gold Mine' palette is great particularly for olive skin (I have olive skin). The shadows apply well and stay on for a long time. The shimmer in some of the shadows look pretty in the sunlight, however it may be the slightest bit too shimmery for my taste. Overall a great everyday eye shadow and the price is worth it, if you will use it often.

Ideal for

Great for all skin type, particularly olive skin.

great product

Love the application directions on the pack, the eye shadow stays in place all day without gathering at the creases. Great eye shadow, I will be purchasing the bronzy colour palette.
The brush was too small for my fingers, I would suggest that you use a larger brush.


Great for creating the smoky eyed look:)
