The Review

Not my favorite box. Sorry :( It's mainly a matter of personal preference. I do not like copper and frosty lipsticks. I do however, love navy shadows, which is what this box includes. The one problem with the shadow is that it's not super pigmented. It goes on a lot more pigmented on the eye lid than it does if you just try to swatch on your arm. I didn't use a primer, but I imagine that you'd have no problem with the pigmentation if you ended up using a primer. The shadow is a navy shade with a slight violet undertone and is between a satin ad frost finish. I love the finish of it. The mascara has a nice fluffy brush. I have some very stubborn lashes that don't really like any mascara, and this one didn't do a whole lot for them. Nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't amazing. It would be a good mascara to throw in your purse for touch ups. All in all, when I look back to my FOTD, I feel like it goes together and looks nice on me (pardon my tired eyes!) and the more I look at it, the more I really like that shade of eye shadow.

*edited to add*



I wanted to add that 45 minutes after applying this shadow, I looked in the mirror and this is what I saw. No, I did not use a primer, but I usually don't use one and have never had this problem. I've never had this issue with a Starlooks shadow either, so I'm not sure if there's something in this shade that would cause breakdown to happen quicker or what...but typically this should not be happening before 6-8 hours.

Make sure to use your primers!
