Le Métier de Beauté 'True Color' Eyeshadow Fire Lily - $30 - 0.13oz - Shimmery red with sparkle
This color is hard to write a review about...because I don't know if I should recommend this or not. The color seems have some sparkle in the pan - I mean, glittery sparkle. But when I swatched on my arm, everything disappeared. The color is not pigmented, the sparkles are gone! I looked at my finger first, then I realized all the color transferred on my finger but not my arm. For this kind of shadows, most of them, are not gonna show up on the eyes...well, from my experience. Surprise, surprise surprise! The next day when I tried on my eyes with a eye primer, the color was so pigmented and the sparkle actually showed up! I don't know how that works, but it happened. It reminds me my too faced single eyeshadows, looks pretty but doesn't show up on my eyes. This one is completely opposite. The color doesn't have any fallout, doesn't fade. The only thing is, I don't think it is quite blendable because the texture is more on the hard side. I ended up keeping this just because I like red shades.
Do you want to try this color? Do you have any shades are like this - not pigmented when swatch but pigmented on the eye?
By the way, I always use a eyeshadow primer to help intense the color... I am sure too faced shadow insurance helped a lot with the color pay off.
