You know when you are simply waltzing through House of Fraser, a little bit of cash in your pocket but no idea what to spend it on? That's how I came to buy this. A complete impulse, but definitely not a mistake.
The packaging drew me in like a magpie to gold in this case. An adorable cardboard box, which houses a glass pot that dons the most adorable scalloped edges. I cannot handle how blinking cute this is! Benefit - your packaging is amazing!
The shade Bikini-Tini is a perfect shimmery nude, not to pink nor too beige or white. I've always wanted Mac Bare Study but it looked too silvery in the store, but I blame that on the lighting. It swatches well and isn't too greasy or too dry, but I can't really explain the texture. It's slightly thinner than the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, for reference. To apply, I sometimes wear only this on the lid by using my ring finger to gently pat away, then take an eyeshadow brush to blend the edges. It's fool proof. If I was to do a 'no-makeup' makeup look, I would be sure to use this as it has such a delicate, pretty effect.
For £15.50, you get 4.5g of cream eyeshadow which is a fair amount. It's rapidly becoming a favourite product in my (rather jumbled) makeup bag and no doubt it could be a staple of yours too.
PS. I would also like to mention how lovely the lady at the counter was! After hearing such negative experiences dealing with staff at counters, she was absolutely lovely and even applied the product to my lid so it was essentially 'try before you buy'. We shared a conversation too which was nice, and not about the products for once!
