Oh my, how things change in just a few short years!
It seems yesterday I was blending bright blue and neon fuchsia in front of my magnifying mirror.
These days, I’m more likely to quickly swipe a neutral-coloured eyeshadow on my lids before rushing out the door.
My current fave shades are soft and luminous, like Delilah Colour Intense Compact Powder Eyeshadow in Flamingo.
Frankly, the colour doesn’t remind me much of a flamingo. It’s more like a subtle but pigmented pinky nude shade that’s very similar to my skintone (makes blending a breeze!).
But what I really love about Flamingo is the luminous finish. That’s what gives away that I’m wearing makeup. And it does so in such a classy way. It makes my eyes look and fresh and awake (even if I haven’t got much sleep the night before).
The texture is amazing. Every bit as soft and smooth as you would expect at this price point. It literally takes only a few seconds to blend.
But what about staying power? Just like most eyeshadows, it starts to crease and fade after a few short hours on oily lids. But add an eyeshadow primer to the mix (hello, Too Faced Shadow Insurance!) and it won’t budge.
If you like this kind of shade as much as I do, you simply have to get it. You’ll be smitten too.
