So I went through a phase of deciding I had to have lots and lots of things from the Scott Barnes collection so I picked up several of these Eye Ice pigments too from StrawberryNet.
These loose pigment eyeshadows come in a number of jewel tones. Like with all loose pigment eyeshadows, one needs to take more time with application, and needs to be careful incase of fall out.
Each of the shadows come in one of these ‘cubes':
Rather snazzy but a little impractical. You can tip a bit into the lid, or tap a bit into your hand/tissue or dip a narrow brush in. At least you won’t loose lots of product if you accidently drop it but still…I would have liked a wider ‘neck’ to stick my brush in.
I picked up 6 shades in the end.
Lame: A white gold
Imperial Gold: A rich antique gold
Treasure: A brown with blue highlights
Serpentine: A dirty chocolate brown
Empress: A dark aubergine
Fever: A light gold peach
Whoops, forgot to photograph Fever, here it is:
The pigmentation is excellent (as you can see), the powders are very fine texture, not bitty or chunky at all which makes them nice to use. All in all, recommended. I paid about £8 each for these.
I’d highly recommend Imperial Gold, followed by Serpentine, then Treasure (although the blue brown thing has been done a million times before). Gah – what the heck, just buy all of them!
