100% Pure Star EyeshadowSaturday, August 08, 2015
In our previous posts, we reviewed 100% Pure eyeshadows in Fiji, Bora Bora and Barbados. Today we'll swatch and review 100% Pure Star eyeshadow.
First, here's the low-down on these popular cruelty-free and vegan eyeshadows...
100% Pure Satin Eyeshadows are a cream formula, with a buttery texture, easy to blend and buildable color payoff. Made with all natural skin-loving ingredients. Formulated to leave the delicate skin around your eyes soft, moisturized and nourished with nutrient-rich butters, super fruit extracts, antioxidants, green tea and herbs.
100% Pure Star satin eyeshadow is a creamy pale gold with an eye-brightening shimmer finish. Funny thing though, when I purchased Star in the store, it appeared more warm and golden under the store lighting, a color I'd been searching for in a cream eyeshadow formula for awhile... But it turned out to be more pale than expected. Bummer when store lighting plays tricks on you! But I do love how it brightens your eyes and it makes a brilliant inner corner highlight.
Star has less sparkle than the others but a more shimmery finish. My favorite way to wear Star is as an inner corner highlight, it adds the perfect pop of gold tone shimmer with earthy bronze shades, such as Bora Bora, Fiji and Barbados as your lid color.
When worn as an all-over lid color, I found Star to be more prone to creasing compared to the others, or perhaps the pale color magnifies the appearance of creasing. Currently I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye primer, but I'll be testing out other eye primers to see if that helps and report back to you.
You can apply 100% Pure Satin eyeshadows with your finger or a brush. I apply them with my ring finger or middle finger, the warmth of your finger tips helps the product blend out effortlessly. As mentioned in the other posts, the pots are pretty small at 35mm and only 20mm inner diameter. So if you have nails, it's hard to get the product out without gouging the poor eyeshadow. Another option is to use a brush or beauty spatula to get the product out, then apply with your finger.
100% Pure Satin Eyeshadows are vegan, cruelty-free and all natural. The ingredients are a fusion of skincare and makeup in every product, and the lifelong health of your skin is so worth giving it the best treatment possible 24/7.
