At first when I bought this, it just looked like a charcoal grey, and I was afraid it wouldn't have the navy color that I was looking for. However, when you apply the eyeshadow, it is a beautiful pigmented navy color!
Great Color but Painful
I love the deep dark eyeshadow colors that I can use for an eyeliner. But even when I use as an eyeshadow, this acts as a big irritant to my eyes -- and I'm thinking it is the Mica and some of the other ingredients. I haven't found a dark blue color yet that doesn't irritate my eyes, so I'm disappointed. If Mica doesn't bother you, however, I'm sure you'll love this product. The color is fab!
Hi there a! We're so sorry that this particular shade bothered your eyes. We definitely recommend getting samples of a few other shades - for whatever reason, sometimes one shade will be irritating while another will not. We have a few more blues that might work better. Best of luck! -The Real Purity Team
Safe, easy to apply, sophisticated colours
I have been using these eye shadows for about three years. I have a cool skin tone and love to use Vanilla as a base, Misty Blue (a subtle violet/blue colour) on the lid, fabulous Navy (a lovely charcoal/navy) and a hint of White Shimmer under my brows on which I wear Matte Cocoa. Thanks Real Purity!
love this selection!
I absolutely LOVE these beautiful eye shadow selections (as well as their amazing staying-power throughout the day). I like to alternate between emerald green, navy, and lilac for my eyelids--while using charcoal gray for my outer lid and white shimmer for my inner eye.
Best of all, these shadows are pressed and non-nano sized!
incredible eye shadow.
I ordered samples first to find the color I wanted. These eye shadows have so much pigment, they can be compared to Lancome or Urban Decay. It's some of the nicest shadow I've ever bought, and now you have to add in that it's so much healthier....it's as good as it gets. I don't use this eye shadow for that purpose. I use it for eye liner, and I use a slanted brush to apply it. You have to be really careful, because many shadows flake off. This eye shadow does not flake, and as far as eye liner goes, it stays put all day. I ordered the dark navy and the emerald green. The colors are amazing. Will order more in the future. I would have given it 6 stars, but that last one wasn't available. If you like highly pigmented eye shadow, with just a smidgen of sparkle, just barely a smidgen, you'll love this. I was pleasantly surprised.
