Remember my cute little haul on MAC including some eye shadows and a prolong wear lip creme? As part of that haul , I picked up this gorgeous lilac silver eyeshadow refill priced at rs. 720 . Read on to see how it fared and how gorgeous a silvery lilac eyeshadow could be!

The shadow is exactly that, it is a lilac with tons of silver in it. It is out and out shimmer eye shadow and it gives that bright-eyes fairy look to the eyes. Very angelic!The shadow is almost like some fairy dust to me.

The shimmer does have fall out but honestly this shadow is best used with a base, I have used it on a black base and I love it! I tried using it on a concealer base but it just did not work for me and my complexion , without a good base the true beauty of this color wont be seen. I love how it looks on a black base.

Another important thing is that this need to be packed on and patted and not blended. It is very soft and cumrbly shimmery kind of a shadow and it looks best when layered twice for the duo chrome effect to show up with all the gold and silver with lavender in it.Absolutely unique it is!

I dont like the shimmer fall out that happnens on my lashes hence I love to use it on a black base like I said. it does fall under eyes and on the cheeks as well and has to be dealt with, but you have to pay a price for such a pretty silver.

The shade stays on regular on me and wont say it is crease free but because it is so soft and shimmery , it needs some extra care.

Last word:

The color is really unique and I love how it looks on a black base, I don’t have a single shadow that has such silvery lilac tones, it is really fairy like!
