In my ongoing investigation of coral make-up shades I have come across a great loose powder eye-shadow from Models Own in Pale Peach. Personally I have been a tad sceptical of using shades of pink around the eyes as it tends to lead to people asking if I have been crying.
This pale peach shade is an exception to the rule as it contains shimmery particles, which makes it look really pretty and healthy. The colour does look quite strong in the pot, but this is of course in a concentrated version. One of the benefits of loose shadow is that you can apply really gradually to ensure you get just the amount of colour and vivid colour that you want.
Models Own products are available at http://www.modelsownit.com/ the eye shadow is priced £5.
In response to queries from some readers about using ‘real’ pictures to accompany the blog and twitter posts, I have made my first venture into using Twitpic to post a ‘real-life’ picture of the product I have been testing. The picture isn’t a swatch, or a picture of the product applied but it does give an idea of what it looks like in a non-touched up picture. http://twitpic.com/6rb0f
As always, appreciate feedback so if this helps please do let me know!
