Name: Eyeshadow in Lavender Fields
Brand: Neve Makeup
From Neve Makeup’s website:
Sage green with warm mauve duochrome. A delicate shade that continually changes as the light changes.
What I liked:
– good color payoff
– soft texture, easy to apply and blend
– the packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– crease and fades after a few hours without a primer
– because it is a loose eyeshadow, application can be messy
Neve Makeup is coming out with some beautiful duochrome eyeshadows lately. One of the most interesting imo, is Lavender Fields. It is described as a sage green with a warm mauve duochrome, but I don’t really agree with that. While it does look green in the jar, once applied it is a simple, rather boring greyish lilac shade. You have to apply it wet to really bring out the lilac duochrome. Then, the shade truly becomes stunning but of course my stupid camera wouldn’t capture that! *sighs*
Lavender Fields has a very soft texture that applies and blends smoothly, when used both wet and dry. As with all loose eyeshadows, application can be a bit messy, although fallout is reduced to a minimum if you use it wet or with a good primer. And you would need a primer anyway as the eyeshadow starts creasing and fading after a few hours on oily lids. Color payoff is good, but keep in mind that the shade is delicate so you’ll get a soft wash, not an intense pop, of color.
The eyeshadow is packaged in a small jar with sifter and a black lid. The full size contains 2g of product and retails at €7,90, which I think is pretty reasonable. In addition, samples are also available for purchase. I have the mini size, which costs only €3,90, and contains 0.7g, which is a very generous amount and will last you for a good while.

Neve Makeup Eyeshadow in Lavender Fields is a greyish green shade with a lavender duochrome that’s very visible only when used wet. It has good color payoff, a soft texture that blends easily and, with a primer, it lasts all day without creasing. However, because it is a loose eyeshadow, application can be a bit messy.
