I got this duo as a gift from a very dear friend of mine.I love applying eyeshadow and antique gold is One shade I love to bits.This duo has a powder eyeshadow pigment at one end and golden-colored liner at the other end.
PRICE:rs.149 or so for 0.5gm.
PACKAGING:The packaging is very sweet with powder eyeshadow compartment at one side and colored pencil at the other end.It us very easy to use and travel friendly.The pencil is sharpenable.It is a very small pencil and will finish up quite soon.
SHADE:The powder eyeshadow pigment is antique gold in color which is very subtle yet very classy.The pencil is yellow golden in color.
MY VIEWS:The texture of the eyeshadow pigment is soft and non-gritty.It is finely milled.The pigment adheres to the eyes really well and has minimal fallout.The shade is decently pigmented and 2 swipes provide a good amount of colour to lids.I love the shade as it gives a polished look to the face.The shade is great and very versatile.
It can be used alone as well as with other shades.It blends well.Also,the shade will compliment Indian ethnic wear very well.The pencil that comes along has smooth formula.It applies with ease without any tugging or oulling.However,the shade is sheer to be used on waterline.I basically use it on the lower lash line or in the inner corners of the eyes as it is a golden shade,it lights up the eyes.
The powder pigment stays for about 4-5 hours without any creasing.It will stay more when used over a primer or over an eyeshadow base.The pencil has low staying power for about 2-3 hours.
RECOMMENDATION:I like the combo and it is very reasonably price.The shade is great and can be used for creating many looks.The formula,pigmentation,quality is also great.The only con is the availability of Avon products.
