So let’s talk about this eye shadow, and why it is the most unique color I have in my collection.
Firstly, I bought this eye shadow over eBay by an Australian seller (links below) and this seller packs each item to perfection. She wraps the item and puts it inside a box full of padding around it; that it is pretty much impossible to damage the item on the way. I purchased it for around $11.00 Canadian with FREE international shipping but the seller has reduced the price to only $7.54 Canadian!
This Benefit silky powder eye shadow has been discontinued. The seller stocks three colors of this eye shadow that she is offering for this price. The colors are Shallow, Getaway, and Guess Again (the one I’m reviewing).
I will attempt to describe this color, as you will see from the pictures this color changes with the light. In natural window light, it is a light dusty purple, mauve, taupe color. Then in the shade, it becomes a plumy almost, pinkish-purple. Do you see why this is the most unique shade I have?; I just used a thousand colors to describe it!
Moving on from the shade, the texture is the softest, silkiest (hence the name) I have ever felt. It is also extremely pigmented; you barely have to rub your finger to pick up the shadow. Because of it’s texture, blending this on your eye is honestly a dream. I love using it when I want to create a day-time natural cut-crease look.
There is a lot of product in this single eye shadow! 3.5 grams is more than any other single eye shadow I have.
Have you tried this eye shadow or do you have a color similar to it?
