Just want to thank everyone who left me all the positive words in my previous entry. My little baby darling is still hanging in there, and I am staying home most of the afternoons and evenings and nights with her. Thankfully work is winding down, and I can be home in the early afternoon. to spend as much time as possible with her.
I know I have mentioned I will not be posting as much but I thought it is a good idea to review these items, as there is a promotion going on, as you prolly have read in icyabstract and adorebeauty's entries, and I think everbluec also did a little haul entry of her i nuovi blushers.
I have been using my i nuovi products quite a few times, and I must say they are really good quality. I shall review the 2 products which I have been using in the past 2 weeks, and share my thoughts on them.
Firstly, the blusher in PINK. This is a pink color blusher, with no shimmer. I like this color because it gives my skin a rosy glow. And because the color is so finely milled, it makes for easy blending. Just to show you the color and how my brush picks up the color.
And here is how it looks like on my cheeks. Please disregard my dazed expressions, messy hair, the zit treatment patches and the fact that I didn't do a full face makeup for this entry. I just want to show you the colors when I am wearing them.
You see the color is pretty pigmented, and it adds a very rosy tinge to my face. I like how you can build up the color, without having to worry that you look like a clown.
Not too sure about the other colors, but I am impressed with this product, and I would definitely check out the color range when I go to the counters.
Next, we have the eyeshadow. I have the color in Dynamite. This is a metallic brown shade, with rather chunky glitter bits which might put people off. However, I think this is a great color and texture to own if you want to do a dramatic neutral (I know it sounds very confusing and contradictory) eye makeup. I like neutrals/ browns which are darker in shade, and Dynamite provides this effect. It reminds me of MAC cocomotion pigment without the glitter.
Here is how the product looks like in the pan and and the brush picks up the product.
Looks like pressed pigment, and you can see the 'chunky' bits.
You might expect a little fallout with such texture, but if you use a primer or paintpot/cream base, that's easily taken care of.
Above pic is the color blended all over my lids with a fluffy brush, and I also applied some in the lower lids for definition.
Pic with flash, so you can see both the cheek and eyeshadow colors.
The eyeshadow doesn't crease nor fade after a day of wear, though some of the glitter chunks disappeared.
'Pink' blusher: 4 out of 5 stars
'Dynamite' eyeshadow: 3.5 out of 5 stars, or 4 stars if you take into account the name
This is quite irrelevant, but I am such a sucker for product names (besides packaging), and 'Dynamite' just calls out to me. :)
I hope this review is helpful, and leave a comment if you have any questions.
