(more) Eyeko: Sexy Eyes eyeshadow tin

I will be showing another Eyeko product for today, just for the heck of it....
Let's take a look at the Eyeko eyeshadow tin in Sexy eyes: a round tin can which consist of five earthy colour-strips with eyeshadow.


This picture was made in natural light

The sexy eyes tin is one of the three tins made by Eyeko. They also have a blue themed Cool eyes and a pink/purple Pretty Eyes. The tins looks girly, young and cute from the outside.

I was pretty amazed when I saw the colours...they were absolutely stunning. I made another picture with flash light, so it shows the micro glimmer and dual layeredness of some colours.


Unfortunately, this is where my raves stop. Honestly, the texture is craptastic...I had to layer and pack on loooots of pigment in order to let the product show on my skin...look at the brush and see how much pigment is on it...The pigment that I am able to pick up upon is crumbly and flakey....
And it is not your average crappy eyeshadow brush...it is shu uemura (as you can see in the right side of the picture beneath...




So I used lots and lots of product to make swatches. The swatches are shown in the next picture...



I am not impressed...The colours are rather meh...

It might work with some high powered eyeshadow primers underneath, such as Too Faced Eye Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion, but hey...a product should be reasonable in the first place...Otherwise I could buy a eyeshadow for 50 cents and have the same results.

This product would be very suitable for mothers who don't want their young girls to wear makeup, but the girls really want to try out makeup...the mothers can give this to their youngster, and it would hardly show off. Shortly, it reminds me of those kiddy makeup kids that look cute but have hardly any pigment at all.

Those eyeko palettes look beautiful, but looks can be deceiving!
