My dear lovelies, how are you all today? As you may have seen on my Instagram, I was gifted a gorgeous, gorgeous product from the new Ilia Fall 2015 Collection. Thanks again babe! ;) <3 I've received their Silken Shadow Stick in the shade Age of Consent. Interesting name, right? :) I love the look of all shades they came up with, but this brown shade is definitely my favourite. It's an ash-brown shade with small golden-brown shimmer and bigger silver particles, glitter I'd say. Nothing matte about it. I absolutely adore it.
It's super beautiful, flattering, enough neutral even for my natural makeup looks, gives a great
shine metallic look
to them lids and it's just so darn easy to use. I swipe it on and blend
with Bdellium Tools 785 brush. Big thanks to Ashley aka The Green Bunny for
talking so highly about it, it really is that awesome as she says it is!
And yes, I'm usually that lazy and I only use this product. And a bit of
highlighter in the inner corners of my eyes and on brow bone. Done. I am
thinking of pairing it with orange/apricot colour or darker brown eye
shadow in my crease, I think it would look nice. One thing I have to say about it is that sometimes when I apply it there are some lumps, but nothing a bit
of blending won't solve.
Other thing is, that it creases. It's creamy so a little creasing is to be expected, but on me it creases like crazy. I know it looks like that on the pictures bellow but my wrinkly eyelids are to be blamed here and not the product. I get "real" creases in about an hour or so. But please keep in mind that my eyelids are oily and I'm still looking for a great eye shadow primer. I've tried a few different techniques when applying this Ilia shadow stick, I hope I'll think of something else that will help. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. :)
Have you tried anything from the new Ilia Collection? I'd also love to try the foundation, looks beautiful!
