For this month’s My Pure review, I chose two of the Living Nature eyeshadows as I’m a big fan of their foundation but hadn’t delved into much of the rest of their makeup range.
I chose the colours Pebble* & Glacier* which are both shades of grey. I don’t have many grey’s in my shadow collection but I do like the effect that they have. I love that you can do a smokey eye without looking too harsh with grey shadows.
Onto the colours…I’ve included a photo of me wearing the shadows so you get an idea of how they look on my eyes. Glacier is more silver than grey and much lighter than I expected but it’s still really pretty and they go very nicely together. They both blend really nicely and are very pigmented however they crease quite a bit on my eyes. In the photo, you can see on the left eye it’s starting to crease already on the inner part of my eyelid, and that was probably only about 15-20 minutes after applying. The eyeshadow then carries on creasing all throughout the day in my socket which is a big shame. I’ll try it with another eyeshadow primer to see if that helps but the one I use is what I use most of the time so it’s the best I’ve found.
It is a really nice inner corner highlight so I’ll stick to using it for that. As I use Pebble on the outer corner, it doesn’t crease as much which is great as it means I can still use that with another eyeshadow on my whole lid.
They come as an individual pan and cost £9.85 each for 1.5g which is quite reasonable but I wouldn’t say “budget”. You can buy an Eyeshadow Compact Case to hold them but I have a few other separate eyeshadows so I’m going to be buying a bigger palette soon to fit mine all in together.
After coming back off holiday, I placed my order and was still on holiday mode as I completely forget to look at ingredients! These do have talc in them, which doesn’t bother me too much as I’m not inhaling it however they haven’t wowed me over enough to want to buy more.
