UNDER HYPED: Ciate Precious Metal Eyeshadows
When you think Ciate you instantly think nail polishes with pretty bows on them, but did you know the brand also has a makeup line? Although the makeup line is relativity unknown/unmentioned it’s got some great products like the Precious Metal Eyeshadows. I’ve never been a massive fan of loose eyeshadows/pigments (I find them a huge pain to be honest, they always seem to make a mess everywhere no matter how hard I try, my clothes, my bench-top, my bathroom, my hair) but these are just too good not to use and love. These eyeshadows come in five gorgeous shimmery metallic shades (I have two, ) and each one comes with an eye primer (which is surprisingly good) The eyeshadows are finely milded (no chunky glitter here) and for a loose eyeshadow fallout isn’t too bad. When used dry the shades can be blended out to look sheer and natural or they can be built up for a more noticeable finish. The magic of these eyeshadows though, really lies in them being used wet, when used with a small amount of mixing medium and applied with a brush, each shade looks like intense, high pigment liquid metal on the eyelids. I can’t understand why more people don’t talk about these.
