I am still quite crazy for Skinfood skinare and make up – the products are just so interesting and innovative and as soon as I saw these Coffee eyeshadows I knew it was a instant must have.
Coffee eyeshadow?! Oh yes. Coffee Knickers, Coffee TV, Coffee Lovin’ – I’ll take anything coffee related.
Skinfood’s Coffee Creamy Colour Fit Shades are quads, in round brown metallic pots. I bought two shades, 01 called Cafe Mink Mocha and 02 Irish Coffee. The swatches online are NOT very accurate so these didn’t look quite as I expected.
A palette of 4 different colors of eye shadow with a smooth texture that is reminiscent of milk coffee. Blends perfectly with your skin tone, and stays put all day.
I have no idea how you could compare the texture of an eyeshadow to the texture of an eyeshadow but ok, whatever you say…
(Before you ask – tragically, it does not smell like Kenco).
One thing about this eyeshadow is that it’s quite smooth with a slightly glittery edge. It’s not gritty though, it’s quite a pretty shimmer…
This has a cream, pink, brown and dark black:
Irish Coffee looks like a green combination but in real life it’s a purple and chocolate combo. I was a bit disappointed but it’s the online swatched that are out of sync…
- Soft Metallic
- Nice wearable colours
- Easy to blend
- All shimmery shades, no mattes
- Colours are quite neutral
Overall these are nice quads to own although I’m not overwhelmed by them. The colours are not as interesting as I’d expected but quite a pretty wearable look for the day. If you like neutrals with a twist these might be nice pick for you.
These are from eBay! Of course!
