It is time for the fourth part of my favourite series and todays product is eyeshadow. It was really hard for me to pick this one because there are so many eyeshadows which I really love, then ones that are a bit more boring to look at but I wear all the time - so I went for one which I love to look at and love to wear and it is.....*drum roll!*........Stila Barefoot Contessa :-)
This is actually my 2nd Barefoot Contessa, which is testament to how much I love this eye shadow as there are only a handful of eyeshadows which I have ever had to repurchase! It is a gorgeous dark burgundy/plum brown with a very slight gold shimmer. It applys and blends well, looks lovely in the crease for a smokey look or lightly dusted over the lid for an all over colour. Its really easy to build on this shadow if you want a more intense colour so I use it for day and for night :-) I own quite a few stila shadows and i'm always impressed by their quality. The pigmentation is great, and they staying power is fantastic. My only grumble is that they all come in pan form so you have to pay extra for the magnetic holders and palettes.
and now the runners up!
- MAC Knight Divine (for the perfect smokey eye)
- MAC Brule (A perfect everyday lid colour)
- Estee Lauder Tea Biscuit (really pretty golden beige)
