We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Yes, in particular I like layer the very sparkly shimmers, those ones whith multichrome shift but sheer base, over matte shades. Sometimes I also layer two similar formulas just for the whim of creating a shade in the middle. Sometimes it ended as a muddy undescript colour, sime other times I’ve got some pleasant surprise (i.e. a sage/olive green shimmer over denim blue… Wonderful combo)

All the time. I find, especially for my creasy eyes, that if I layer mattes, I get less creasing. And layering shimmers is always lovely.

Totally! With crepey eyes, I find I have to blend my transitions particularly well and the easiest way to do that is to load a bit of each colour and apply to transition area and blend out.

Not only that, but I also find layering shadows gives an eye look more nuance in general.

I mostly use the colors as they are, I don’t have the artistic eye to combine colors. Eyeshadows end up being layered simply because that’s my process: I apply a matte color on the entire life or just in the crease, than follow up with a lid color, for example.
I never mix colors because the end result is risky and I never get the same color on both eyes… but that’s my lack of skills.

I sure do! It’s how I achieve a really good, seamless blend, especially when doing a really perfect blown out smokey eye. Also, it makes for better blending of shade edges in even a colorful or complex look.

Yes. I love to layer sparkly shades over my lid color. I’ll also layer sheer duochomes over lid or inner corner colors.. Sometimes I also layer colors to deepen, brighten, or tweak a shade (say, to make a blue more teal).

Not usually, but sometimes to correct I do and sometimes it works, but most times not, so I avoid totally laying. Of course, blending area overlap is a must.
