I resisted and resisted but in the end I just had to try out one of the Limited Edition Shining Ocean Eyes from Lunasol. This is a water based shimmery cream eyeshadow which has a subtle shine to the eyes – this stuff dries and it will not crease.
There are 5 shades to choose from – I got EX02 Shining Sheer Beige:
In the box:
A water-based eye shadow reminiscent of the ocean that sparkles in the sunshine.
With a succulent, cool texture, it leaves a silky powder after application and adheres snugly to the skin.
Add a moist luster and sparkles to your eyes.I am a massive fan of cream eyeshadows as long as they don’t crease! This is more of an all over base or something to put on top of shadow to add some lustre as there’s little pigment.
Sheer Beige is a light cool gold:
It’s a light gel – dries fairly quickly and leaves a sparkly finish (but very fine shimmer). It works ok as a base (which is what I was thinking of using it for!) but it’s not as good as a proper lid base product.
The finish – I think it’s very pretty for summer and good if you are feeling lazy and just want something shimmery. You can also use this colour on the cheeks – it’s as neutral as it gets!
I bought this from adambeauty.com. Lunasol isn’t cheap but it’s such an amazing brand! This product is similar to jelly eye products I guess but a bit easier to use.
