Buxom Single Shadow
After going back in forth for a few months, I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy this eye shadow. While I am partial to nude/brown shades, I wanted to break out of my comfort zone, and this is the perfect color to do that. This color first hit my radar after I watched this tutorial by Kathleen Lights. Purple is one of my favorite colors, so I wanted something lilac and iridescent to put all over my eyelids. This can be applied lightly for a subtle lavender shift, or packed on and built up to the color in the swatch. I find that this lasts much longer if I put it over a cream shadow, like a MAC Paint Pot or Maybelline Color Tattoo.
If you are on the fence about this color, go see it in person. It is ten times more beautiful when its in front of you. I finally decided to buy this after swatching it on my hand in person at Sephora.
So I not only had to buy the shadow, I also had to buy the little compact to put it in for $2. This was a pretty pricey single shadow, but I find it so unique and worth it. You get 0.05 oz of product also, which is a good amount for a little pan.
