A look into beauty, that doesn't harm our furry friends
If you asked me a year ago if I would ever venture into the world of loose pigments, I would of instantly cowered in fear and said no! However, they aren’t nearly as terrifying as I thought, and I’m starting to grow a small collection. Out of theBalm’s Overshadow collection, containing 4 different colors, I went with just one- “If you’re rich, I’m single“. Oh ho ho, these names.
“If you’re rich, I’m single” is described as a ‘shimmering mauvey pewter’, but I would definitely disagree! I can see a super-subtle pewter shimmer, but this mauve-copper color comes off very warm. Technically the Overshadow line is meant to be worn over shadows, but I’ve only swatched/worn it alone, applied wet. With the intense color you can achieve, it really looks stunning on the eyes!
I’m actually really enamored with this color! You can add so many different colors to the crease, but this is me just wearing it alone. Gotta give it some time to shine! And by shine, I mean subtle shimmer- this is not super-glitter-in-your-face at all. I still need to give this loose mineral eyeshadow a chance dry. When applying it wet I find it easiest to start with a brush sprayed first, and then pick up some loose shadow that’s been distributed in the container’s cap. From there, it’s just gentle patting motions on the lid to apply evenly and prevent any fall-out.
There are 4 different colors total ( gold, champagne, and copper), all shimmering, but I think I’ll just stick with this one color. Have you tried any of the Overshadows? Any preference on wet vs dry?
