Next up are the Eye Lustre eyeshadows. For some reason I feel like these and the Pure Eyes Frost don't get enough justice. Is it because there are so many? Or is it because they're not an LE. Either way, I found these to be beauties.
Nice thing about these shades (and the Frost ones) is that they're a bit cheaper. 5 gr jar is $7.25 US compared to the normal $8.00 US for other collections. So stock up! (Well, that's what I tell myself to do *squee*)
I really hope these photos are clickable to larger ones because they're a bit small otherwise. Above is indoors, no flash, regular light. I love Isadora (sorry I put Isadore, whoops) and Edie and Diamanda. Oh and Arielle. Arielle looks a bit beigey in the swatch above, but it has this sparkly pink and blue effect to it that is stunning.
Look at these glamorous dolls! I seriously need to convince Miss K I will come clean her house for 6 months straight (not that she needs it, I'm sure) so I can have one of each of her creations. They're all so beautiful. Look how pretty Cosette is and Isabella!
Weirdly, Brianna shows green based on AL's site, but I got more of a golden yellow very light green shade. It's still quite nice.
Kiki looks really bright if you layer, otherwise it's a bit soft. Same with Odette.
Here are some close up shots. I feel like these really demonstrate the variance in each shadow. I love how sparkly they are.
Oh Kiki, you look like lipstick! And Isabella....it reminds me of satin.
I seriously was shaking my head doing this comparison chart because my swatches matched EXACTLY with AL's website. That kind of thing thrills me. I love the perfection of it. The only one that was off was Brianna. But eh, 99% is good enough for me!
Do you like these? Have you tried them? Don't be fooled into thinking because they're not LE or because they're an oldie but goodie that they don't perform. I really enjoyed swatching these and I hope you like them too!
