Hope you all are having fun! I am back from a week-long vacation in Gujarat. We went to Rann, attended the Kutch festival (Rann Mahotsav), Diu, Dwarka and Somnath and also did lots of shopping in Bhuj. All in all, it was a true vacation with loads of time with family, sight seeing, photographs, shopping and discovering!
Sadly, we all fell ill after returning home. God knows why each time I go to mainland, I fall sick. Well, reports show that people who stay in remote areas in Andamans, they develop cough when they move to metro cities. In Andamans, and particularly in my place, there is no pollution, of whichever kinds.
But as I recover from my viral fever and get back on routine life, I have a review for you guys, Korres eye shadow in ivory color.
Velvety, easy to apply pressed eyeshadow, with sunflower and evening primrose oils that care for the delicate eye area.
Approximately $15 but the price varies from store to store.

My Take on Korres Sunflower and Evening Primrose Eyeshadow in Ivory:
Though I am not fond of light shades on eye and I do have an ivory shade in an eye quad that I already possess, I think Korres ivory is very different from that one and it is much better as well.
The shade is creamy off white and looks pretty on the eyes and I guess it would make all eyes look pretty. The color is not too pigmented. One has to put around 3-4 swipes to get a coat of color, but since it is naturally made, it is very easy on eyes.
I have sensitive eyes and even a bit of chemical in any eye product causes a boil kind of thing on my eyelids even though it disappears in a while, but I have started shunning eye products now for the same reason. Thankfully, Korres saves me the luck.
The packaging is super cute as seen in the pics, though there is no mirror in the pack, nor an applicator.
There is a little fall out of the color as well, but still I am very pleased with it as I truly like the shade. Also, it has a decent staying power. It stays for about 3-5 hours on my oily eyelids and that too without a primer. If you watch closely, you can notice the fall out around. The picture is unedited and as it is.

Let’s go through the pros and cons:
Pros of Korres Sunflower and Evening Primrose Eyeshadow in Ivory:
- Very pretty shade.
- Stays on for decently enough time.
- Very easy to apply.
- Super cute packaging.
- All natural color, so doesn’t cause any irritation to eyes.
Cons of Korres Sunflower and Evening Primrose Eyeshadow in Ivory:
- Color is not too pigmented.
- A little fall out is there.
But I am in love with this shade. It really sits well on the eyes and give a subtle color to the eyelids.
Sharing with you a few pics from my vacation. Hope you guys like these.
This is the bag that I picked up for my friend. She loved it. Bhuj is a paradise for such bags/jholas.
That’s our suit in Diu. It was sea facing and had a beach to its name. We loved the jhoola. We had our breakfast and morning/evening teas here on the jhoola enjoying the view.
And that’s the view from the bedroom. The best thing about this room was that we could see the sun rise and the sun set from here! 😀
In our safari in Gir National park, we even spotted a lion sleeping lazily. This giant lion is the head of his territory and has 32 lions and lionesses in his family!
And finally, that’s me! Clockwise – I was caught dreaming across a window, my hubby says I was standing there for many minutes oblivion to their calls and the world around; playing with my favorite companion Pahal (pic taken at summer house, Diu); Standing on top of Kala Doongar (it was so sunny there) and I clicked it last evening during at-home party on R-day!
Hope you guys liked the pics. With love, Surabhi.
