Bright Silver Eyes: Korres Eyeshadow

Korres Eyeshadow in #51 Silver ($16.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright lightly warmed-up silver shade with a frosty, shimmery finish. Korres has sixteen different eyeshadow shades available, and they’re priced in line with MAC (which is $14.50 for 0.05 oz.). Each eyeshadow comes in a square compact that flips open to reveal the shadow itself.

The eyeshadow was incredibly silky and smooth, and it applied easily. It held a lot of pigment and color, and there was no chalkiness or drag. I liked that it wasn’t a cool-toned silver, because it worked better on my warmer skin tone than some other bright silvers do. When used on the eyes, Korres’ Silver eyeshadow blends easily and seamlessly with other shadows. (I sometimes find mixing brands isn’t always easy with some shadows!) I’m hoping my local Sephora carries a few more shades so I can try some more out in person.

  • Product: 8/10
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 8/10
  • Packaging: 7/10

Recommendation: If you’re an eyeshadow fiend, be sure to peep Korres’ eyeshadows next time you’re at your local Sephora. The shade selection leaves something to be desired with only sixteen currently available (via Korres’ website), but hopefully they’ll continue to expand it in the future.

Availability: Sephora
