These are some of the more orange/peach shades from Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) range. I wish Inglot would add color descriptions for their eyeshadows online, because I think it would enhance the buying experience and–at the very least–give us some indication of what to expect!
Today, I wanted to take a look at a few of Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadows($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.). The Pearl Eyeshadows have a very fine shimmer with a brighter, pearly sheen. The pearl finish is probably my favorite of Inglot’s finishes, because it has the right mix of color payoff and texture. It’s soft, smooth, and very blendable. All of the shades featured in this post applied beautifully; really intense color delivered in a silky smooth formula. For the most part, the shimmer was incredibly fine and the sheen pearled.
Guerlain Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadows($35.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) are new for summer and come in three varieties. Guerlain claims they are heat and water-resistant that “will last from dawn to dusk.” Each shadow is housed in a square glass tube with a metal cap–the packaging is very reminiscent of lipgloss, even down to the doe-footed applicator. The packaging is a good mix of functionality and aesthetic appeal, but the glass makes these less portable.
Inside, there is a deep, dark purpled plum with a satin sheen; muted grayish green with a soft, satin sheen; pale, warm beige with a soft, frost finish; medium-dark red-toned plum with a satin sheen; and a pale, dusty pink with a soft, satin sheen. The green shade was a bit soft and would fade when applied, so the color payoff could have been marginally better there, but it was buildable. The other three shades were nicely pigmented, though. The light pink shade was really sheer when applied, but I wasn’t able to build up the intensity at all. The texture of these was lovely, though; really silky smooth with a softness that enabled the powder to apply well to the eye and blend effortlessly with each other.
Milani Intermix Baked Metallic Eyeshadow($7.49 for 0.05 oz.) is a melange of rusted brown, bronze, and white beige, which all mixes to create a medium-dark bronzed brown with a frosted finish. It swatches the same whether used wet or dry, which is fantastic. The texture is soft and allows the product to apply smoothly without dust or fall out.
As promised, Curacao! It’s so pretty, I couldn’t just slide it into the original post without some sort of fanfare! Stila describes Curacao as a sparkling violet blue. I found it more blue than violet, though. At best, you might argue indigo, but I think it’s more of a rich, navy blue with electric blue shimmer. It’s bright without being neon; dark without being black. Curacao has nice color pay off and glides on as easily as the other shades in the Sparkle Eyeliner family. It’s an impressive formula, and if shimmer in your eyeliner is your thing, you’ll probably enjoy Stila’s new liquid liner.
