After playing with the color wheel and testing out many of the colors at the store, I decided to go with two safe colors for eyes for my first purchase.
Let's begin with my favorite, Sophisticated (shown on left above). It is a cream eyeshadow in cool taupe with silver sheen. All the hand made colors are packaged in small glass bottles. This cream eyeshadow comes with a doe foot applicator. I would dot on the product with the applicator on my lid and blend it out with my finger, so easy. It blends effortlessly and beautifully. Use the product sparingly, a little goes a long way. The color is highly pigmented and lasts all day. This is a good neutral for everyday looks, but it is not a problem to layer and build up color for more dramatic looks.
I really like blue eyeliners, so I chose Control (shown on right above). It is a vibrant cobalt blue liquid eyeliner. It comes with a fine tip brush which is adequate. I find that I must brush on a few layers to get the desired intensity or the line will look splotchy. I am not sure if it is the fault of the brush or the product itself. I was excited about the color, but I was a little disappointed with how I have to make it work for me.
The products mentioned can be used as eyeshadow or liner interchangeably. Overall, I like Sophisticated so much that I went back for more. I went back to get Intuitive, a fun bright green and a neutral pink lip color in Perspective. Let me know if you are interested in seeing these colors.
