The Icing Eye Shadows

Hi everyone!! I hope you all had an awesome weekend! I relaxed most of mine. I just wanted to do a quick post on these, so here we go...


* All swatches were done with no base, one swipe through each. *

I never would have thought that eye shadows from an accessory store would be good but these totally impress me. As you can see from the swatches they are really pigmented and the pans are huge at .13oz/3.6 grams. Most of them are eye shadows but the blue and copper ones have the consistency of a pressed pigment. At first they can be a tiny bit flaky but once you get past that first layer they become more smooth and easy to apply. I don't feel I need a colored base with any of them since they do have a good amount of pigmentation.

You can buy these at The Icing Store, they retail for $3.50-$4.50 each and they always have the BOGO 50% off sales just like the nail polishes I posted about before.

These also didn't have much information out there about them so I just described them the best I could for you all.

If you have any questions about anything I might have left out, just let me know!!

I'll be doing some looks with these soon so look out for those!
