Onward with my warpaint campaign! Ansley Pure Pop Super Star eye shadow & gel eyeliner is the cutest little set I've ever laid eyes on (aye aye!) The eyeshadow pan screws onto the eyeliner container... if they had worked out a way of getting the eyeliner brush to attach to the pot I would have been super impressed! I'm obsessed with stuff that fits together - Swiss army knives, Dyson vacuum cleaners, Transformers... </geek> There's even a teeny mirror in there!
(L to R) The eyeshadow duo is oven-baked and consists of an almost-matte dark olive green next to a very pale green, practically white frosty shimmer shadow. The waterproof gel eyeliner is an olive-tinged gold colour. The eyeshadows apply very lightly, the dark green has been seriously rubbed in in this swatch.
FOTD: I'm not the best at eyeshadow, but I did my best! I used the light colour dark colour in the crease and on the outside with a damp brush, then lined my eyes first in black, then with the gel eyeliner. The eyeliner is really lovely and creamy, it's my first experience with gel eyeliner, and I have to say, I think the hype is worth it - it applies densely and isn't too much harder than pencil, but it lasts all day.
Excuse my eff'ed up fringe - some days it just doesn't behave...
(posing with a symbol of my gender's enslavement... heh)
Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the package - the dark eyeshadow applies a bit lighter than I'd like, but the white eyeshadow and eyeliiner are really lovely!
The eyeshadow was sent to me by e-boutique Glow and Glamour. They have many more cosmetic products and contact lenses on their site. You can use the coupon code LABMUFFIN at checkout for a 5% storewide discount (I don't get any money from this, it's just a discount). Additionally, they currently have a promotion going on where you have the chance to win a US$ 10 voucher, just for making an account - no purchase necessary! What are you waiting for? :)
Update: retested eyeshadow with primer - still very very light, but lasts forever.
