If you are a fan of Purple, this release was made with you in mind. The wear on these is absolutely ridiculous. When they say 12- hour wear, they really do mean it. I was walking around with my arm swatches for about a whole day. I am happy to report that there was absolutely no glitter fallout with the more shimmery shades. There was also no smudging, fading or
Side note: I get asked quite frequently how I sharpen these pencils. I use my Urban Decay Grind House sharpener. I don't do anything special. I have also read that putting the pencils in a fridge before sharpening helps the process.
These should be becoming available soon in stores as well as online. These are limited edition and will retail for $6.99.
Snowy White: creamy matte white creme. Makes for a fantastic sticky base for bright eye shadows as well.
Lovely Frost: metallic Silver.
Romantic Violet: dusty, light lavender with slight Silver undertones.
Plum Amour: beautiful, light Plum shimmer with hints of Pink and Golden undertones.
Midnight Romance: deep, Blue-toned Amethyst Purple with Silver sparkle.
Charming Black: black creme with Shimmering Silver sparkle.
I didn't run into any problem shades while doing my swatches. As usual these were creamy, smooth and extremely pigmented. I have not had a chance to actually play with them yet, but I am really excited to do so. There isn't a great range of colors in this release, but the shades that they did release are beautiful. I really enjoyed the deeper Purples and I can't get enough of creamy, matte Whites. The shimmering Black is just beautiful as well. The Silver was an awesome surprise as it was almost foil- like in finish and not frosty at all. There is an absolute Holiday vibe to these and I love all the sparkling goodness.
Will you be picking any of these Shadow Eyez shades for the Holidays?
