illamasqua invoke powder eyeshadow 01

The day I bought Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette, I said goodbye to all my other eyeshadows. I had no use for them anymore.

Yep, I like Naked 3 THAT much.

Until Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Invoke came into my life. Now I’m cheating on Naked 3 all the time.

Kind of. I still use Naked 3 for my crease and highlight but Invoke is my new fave lid shade. It’s a goldish bronze loaded with shimmers that makes my eyes sparkle like the stars (not a discoball).

I usually avoid neutrals on my lids. I like to add a touch of colour, like a shimmering pink or pale purple, there to spice up the look (all neutrals is SO boring).

I find the gold tone in this is just the perfect mix of fun and wearable, so that’s what I’m using now. It also works well as a highlight shade in the corner of your eyes. That’s what I do on the days I feel more pink. 🙂

Colour payoff is good. A couple of swipes are enough to provide an opaque coat that lasts for at least 8 hours – if you wear it with a primer.

Oh, don’t be fooled. Invoke is super shimmery but not gritty. The texture’s pretty smooth and blends like a dream.

Now I’m curious to check out more shades from this range. I have a feeling my eyeshadow collection is about to grow bigger again…
