The eyes have it this Sunday. My August Ipsy Glam Bag was a gem so my sample for this Sunday came from the August Glam Bag. I loved the sample so much after the first try that it immediately made it into my travel bag before I left for vacation.
Mica Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow was the first sample I pulled from my sample glam bag. The shadow color is Bronze and really appealed to me as Bronze is a color that is so easily combined with a lot of different colors and can be glammed up or down for daytime or the evening. The eye shadow is a loose powder shadow and I had a tried a loose shadow from a different company in a previous sample box that I received so I wasn’t ‘scared’ to give this one a go as I had already tried a loose powder shadow already. Whew – quick and easy application without have to search a tutorial!
Loose powder shadows are on my favorite list because the pigment in the loose powders is fantastic. You only need one swipe with a brush and viola – you have rich color that then only needs to be shaped and blended with your other shadow – plus the fallout is very minimal with a loose powder. The Mica eyeshadow did not disappoint and I found that the application was a little cleaner than the previous loose powder I had tried. Mica’s shadow texture seems to a bit “stickier” and the top of the shadow had a lid with holes to shake the powder through so I wasn’t having to dip my brush into the entire pot. That one little feature made a huge difference in the ease of getting the shadow from the pot to my eye in a ‘non-messy’ way.
When I was done I was in love with the color and how easy the shadow was to apply. Mica Beauty Eyeshadow…Welcome to my make-up kit and where can I find more of your eyeshadow friends…
