Top: Alabaster is described as a matte bisque (the shadow is a light cream shade, it’s pigmented, very blendable not patchy or powdery. It makes a great highlight shade.)

Thunder is described as a shimmery smoky grey (this shadow is very pigmented, so soft and blendable, it was an instant fave. I didn’t get a lot of fall out with the shimmer either. )

Blackout is described as a matte black (this shadow isn’t very black and though blendable tends to looked kind of patchy no matter how much I applied or blended, maybe it was just me, but it’s not the best black shadow i’ve ever used.)

Bottom: Roast described as a reddish brown with gold flecks (I’m not a fan, the chunky glitters fall out and I end up looking like a disco ball.)

Black Current described as a suede/matte plum (is one of my favorite go to shades in any palette and the color payoff in this one is awesome.)

Seafoam described as a sheen soft mint (to me it’s more of a champagne color with light golden undertone/shimmer, super blendable and soft, this photo doesn’t do it justice it’s a definite favorite.)

Waterproof Shadow Liner in Luminous Fig 

Described as

  • Totally waterproof, crease-resistant formula.
  • Smudge as a liner or blend as a shadow for allover, long-wearing color
  • Light reflecting pearls give high drama color and shimmer, while emollients create a silky, creamy texture.

Yes, Yes and Yes. Regular price is $19, it comes with a smudger at one end. It doesn’t tug my eyelids, glides on and very easy to blend. As a person two sometimes “forgets” to use eyeshadow primer, if your are like me and have oily lids you’ll love this cause it does not budge once it sets and is definitely longwearing. .
