Sunday Link Love, Volume #087

Happy Sunday!

This whole weekend I’ve been totally jealous of everything attending The Makeup Show in Los Angeles, and I’m really kicking myself for not going!  This is something I do every year–the grass is always greener, eh?  Nonetheless, instead of wallowing in my jealousy, I’ve been trying to go through my backlog of photos so I can then get through a backlog of reviews.  I swear, one day I will be caught up!

Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as an “electric purple.” It’s a red-toned violet purple with purple flecks of shimmer. MAC Power Boosted is similar but frosted. NYX Violetta is also similar but has gold flecks. Bare Escentuals Boudoir is frosted and lighter. Urban Decay Purple Haze is purpler, a bit darker. Urban Decay Fishnet is brighter, more shimmered.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow formula, it’s designed as a “sheer, lightly pearlized shadow.” There is an underlying sheerness with this shade, so it can easily be used as a wash of color. It is somewhat buildable to semi-opaque color coverage, but the faded quality of the wash is always there in the background unless you layered this over a white or purple base–I think you could get really full coverage that way (true with most sheer products).  There is some fall out from the sparkle, unfortunately!  Not that much translates from pan to eye, so there is less to contend with as fall out, but there is still some.  This wears just around eight hours with very, very subtle creasing without a primer, and it wears all day with a primer.
