When I first got this eyeshadow, I couldn't see why the SA had chosen it for me. It practically blended right into my lid and I could see no difference.
It only came out a few months ago as I was doing a massive makeup sort-out..I used it a few times and then realised it was my MEL B shade, the "my eye lid (but) better" shade.
My lids are not the same colour as the skin around my eyes, they have always been darker and this has always been a source of frustration for me. I always wanted to do a neat eyeliner flick on a flawless eye but it never worked as I didn't realise that most of the models sporting this look were wearing an eyeshadow.
|It photographed with a hint of shimmer because my I'd used my Natural High eye cream beforehand.|
It is pretty similar in colour and consistency to Illegal by Urban Decay, the only difference being that Illegal is a bit pinker but I still make it work.
I know that Boots have stopped making this shade as I can't find it and this pains me but Urban Decay thankfully show no signs of d/c'ing it.
