‘Sand’ is a gorgeous highlighter kind of a shade. As soon as I saw it at the counter, I really liked it a lot. There was another color at the counter which was pretty similar to this eyeshadow, I don’t remember the name. The shade being a very light creamy white color, I expected it to be very chalky and stark. But to my surprise, it is smooth and soft not at all chalky. The texture feels soft and blends beautifully into the skin. Now, from the range of eyeshadows I own this one is best. The color is super pretty and goes well for highlighting. It is subtle and does have some silver shimmer particles. The shimmer adds a soft glow to the skin. It works well as an all over eye lid color too. I layered this eyeshadow over the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to Bronze and it looks a very nice combination. I think this shade will suit fair, medium and dusky skin tones too. It might look slightly stark on very deeper skin tones. As the shade has some shimmer particles, there is some fall out with this eyeshadow too. So, it is best to tap off the excess eyeshadow before applying it on the eye lids to avoid it.


Texture and pigmentation

The texture of this eyeshadow is decently soft and smooth. It glides easily without any tugging and it doesn’t turn patchy or difficult to blend. The shimmer is delicate and finely milled, it doesn’t feel gritty or chunky. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is quite decent. It doesn’t show up in full color intensity in a single swipe, you need to layer the product at least twice to show up well. I think the formula of this eyeshadow is definitely far better than the other eyeshadows.

Staying power

The eyeshadow has a low staying power without a base. It stays on me for about 2 and half hours and then starts fading. A primer or any creamy base underneath these eyeshadows is recommended again to make it work better.
