WOOOOOOWWWW. It’s been a while since I’ve have time to make a real post. So I’ll dedicate this post to one of my favorite sites for makeup brushes and now makeup Abbamart.
Ok, So abbamart is know for selling amazing makeup brushes at really cheap prices. Now they are venturing into actual makeup with there BELLEME collection. I was given the opportunity to review one of their products and I choose to review their eyes on me eyeshadow in Midnight in Paris. Midnight in Paris is charcoal grey with a colorful sparkle
I’m not sure if it is but the package looks like it could be eco-friendly.
The one gripe I do have with the packaging is that almost everything is in korean.
Now on to the product:
Midnight in Paris looks exactly as described. it has a beautiful array of colorful sparkles. I got excited when I first swatched the shadow cause the color was so concentrated. I also love that the shadow had a smooth texture. It’s been my experience that a lot of eyeshadows with sparkles or glitter in them tend to be a little scratchy. The more I look at this shadow the more I want to call it a Gunmetal as opposed to a Charcoal grey because of the shine but I think that might be due to the sparkles. One of my biggest reasons for loving this product is the fact that it can be used with water. When I swatched it (1=water, 2=alone, 3=with primer) I got 3 totally different results. While the color was great by itself(swatch2) water (swatch 1) made the colored sparkles come out more while primer (swatch3) made the base color more pigmented. Something about the way this eyeshadow reacted differently with each product tickled me
I have to say all in all I LOVE THIS EYESHADOW. I’m a big fan of sparkles so this just has me in heaven. this is the perfect color to do a smokey eye with. Speaking of which. Yesterday I went to go see the new Tyler perry play and thought it would be a perfect occasion to try a look with this. I didn’t really feel like going over board so I just put Midnight in Paris on my lid with a little of my white sparkle dust in the inner corner . What I like about this product is while it is pigmented it’s not too pigmented. Meaning it’s buildable as opposed to having to tone it down to achieve a softer look. This product is great, especially for the price (only $4.50 @ abbamart.com).
I said all this to say BUY THIS EYESHADOW!!!!!!!!
