Simply Pretty Cream Shadow + Liner Duo in True Pink

Is it obvious that I'm blogging on my phone here. Yes, I am trying to do blogging on the go, since I can't afford to sit and lounge any time soon. So forgive the alignments and unedited photos, it is raw and fresh from my not-so-trusty phone camera. :3

Back to the topic, I love cream shadows lately as it is a good base and make shadows last longer. As you can see, this love affair all started with Ever Bilena's mousse eyeshadow in rose quartz and amber. *Watch out for my amber swatch and review, it is soooooo yummy! :P

When I saw this shadow liner duo from Simply Pretty a while back, I just can't say no and live! And so I got it! It comes with two shades, in pink and in purple, and I decided to get the pink shade...

The cream shadow comes in a lipstick tube and is the eyeliner's closing cap. :) Here are the swatches in one swipe with and without flash:

The cream shadow is not that pigmented and is glittery, but you could build up the color by swiping more hence you could also control the intensity of the color. If your lids aren't that oily, this could be used alone especially for monolids like me, and it could be used as a base for purplish/pinkish smokey eyes too. ^^

The eyeliner however is reddish brown, although I'm hoping I could use this as a brow pen too, I'd pass it, because like I said, it's kind of reddish, so this pencil is better used as an eyeliner to tight waterline if you want to achieve a defined eyes without being dramatic. :) It's also perfect for daytime use and for that no-make-up make up look as well.

All in all, I love my purchase and thought that I should have gotten the other shade as well! *sigh Oh well, I love to use this when I'm in a hurry (which is almost always!) so I used to keep this inside my make up purse all the time, but I hate that the cream shadow/cap of the eyeliner always pop out making havoc in my bag!

Have you tried this cream shadow + liner duo from Simply Pretty? What are your says?

Firmoo x Gerilen Elinessete International Giveaway!

There are those days a long time ago when spectacles a.k.a. eye glasses are worn only as a device. Either to correct eye vision, to protect the eyes during construction e.g. welding irons and even to shield against ultraviolet light.
