Random swatch: Accessorize Iconic Eyeshadow ‘Ultra Violet’

I came across this beauty when I was having an organise of my beauty bits and I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about it sooner. Look at it – it’s a STUNNING colour. Part rich blue, part shimmering purple. If you like colour then I dare you not to love this. It’s simply gorgeous.

Accessorize Iconic Eyeshadow in ‘Ultra Violet’
I really think that the pictures speak for themselves. The colour is gorgeously pigmented with a pretty shimmer, but not glitter. The shadow really is as smooth as silk – it almost feels like a mousse, it’s that lightweight and blendable. The pan contains 2.5g of product, and feels really big. 
Accessorize Iconic Eyeshadow in ‘Ultra Violet’ – SWATCHED.
What I’d love to know is how would you wear this shadow? As a neutral lover, it’s hard to know how to wear this without it feeling intimidating! What colours would you wear with it – suggest a look and I’ll give it a go!
The Accessorize make-up is available in Superdrug & Accessorize Stores – the shadow costs £4 (a bargain in my opinion).

PR sample provided in goody bag WAY back when the range launched. Bad beauty blogger.

    This colour is perfect. I think I wear electric blue colours more than any other eyeshadow. You can wear it with silver (blue instead of the black in a smokey eye). I usually pair it with lime green (but I’m all about the bright eyeshadows!)

    I actually really like the idea of trying to pair it with another bright! Might be one I try but don’t leave the house wearing. Silver is a great idea 🙂

    This shadow really reminds me of Shade 4 from the MUA make up line in Superdrug. Its cheap and pigmented and looks a lot like this one. Blue duo-chrome and all! (Just a heads up)

    @allypopp – that’s good to know actually, I’ll check it out and compare 🙂

    I would use this as a liner over usual black liner on the top lid just to make it pop.

    I’d also use this as a liner… or just over the lid so you get a glimpse of it when you blink. It’s a beautiful colour.
