“ Brand: Isadora / Type: Eyeshadows / Suitable for: Eye „
ISADORA IN GENERAL.
I always like adding a bit of history when I do a review, as it's interesting sometimes to know where it comes from. Isadora was first launched from Sweden in 1983. Their goals are to provide fashionable and affordable products to the general population. All their products are fragrance free and clinically tested, in order to insure its safety. Isadora has a complete cosmetics line with everything from makeup, and skin care to fragrances and sun care. Today Isadora is in over 40 different countries and is a fast growing international brand.
TRIPLE EYE SHADOW.
The product that I want to talk about is personally one of my all time favorites when it comes to eye makeup. I have to admit that once I find something I tend to stick with it so I cant compare it to hundreds of other brands out there which I am sure are great as well. However unless you have the cash to spend on expensive name brands, then Isadora is very good value for its price. This triple eye shadow retails for about 12 Euros or 10 Pounds depending on the store.
The eye shadows comes in a square container with a clear plastic top, so that you can view the colors inside, there is no mirror included but there is a double sided applicator brush. The box is very sturdy, and despite being dropped several times, the colors have not been broken, as has happened to several of my other powder eye shadows.
The color "Golden Cacao 02."
I have very fair skin and light eyes, I have found that "colors" tend to make me look washed out, and so rich browns and gold's are my preferred choice. This tricolor, is what I mainly use when I am going out in the evening as its is quite dark, however if I use the top one and mix it with only a dab of the darker brown then it is also ok for a daytime look.
The product photo that is displayed here, doesn't do the colors justice, in reality the top one is a golden beige, with golden sparkles, the middle one a wood brown with smaller lighter sparkles and the bottom one a dark chocolate brown with golden sparkles, that are a perfect highlight.
I have had the same eye shadow for pushing on three years now, and I use it about four times a week, a little goes a LONG way, and the merest dab, is enough to coat your entire eye.
I use the golden one the most, as it is perfect for both day and night and therefore it is almost finished, but the two darker ones are still almost half full. I would recommend this product to anyone, who has a fair skin tone and wants to warm up their face, it is not as dramatic as black, but I have found it to be a more natural alternative, when you want those smoky eyes, out on the town.
I really like the way this eye shadow looks on your eyes, however because it has sparkles it doesn't glide on as smoothly like other eye shadows, but I have not found this a problem in any way. As long as you don't put too much on the brush then you are fine.
This is very simple and basic; I take the middle color, which is the lighter brown, and lightly brush it on my eyelid. (Use very little, as it spreads easily) Then I take the golden color, and dust it over to lighten the brown, with a little extra under the eyebrow and on the inner eyelid. (This opens up your eye making it appear larger)
I generally start with the lightest color and spread it over the area under my eyebrow, and in the inner corner of my eye. Then I take the middle color, which is the lighter brown and lightly brush the eyelid, as well as the hollow where your bone starts just above the eyelid (lightly press just above your eyelid and you will feel it). The darkest color I use to draw a line along the bottom of your upper eyelid, just where it meets the lashes. I also draw a thin line underneath my eye, where the bottom eyelashes meet the eye. Basically you use it like you would a eyeliner, I have found this to work well, and it makes a huge difference, as the colors blend better then using a separate eyeliner. Last of all I use the lightest one again, to lighten the inner corner of the eye, and any spots that look a bit too dark.
