Unexpectedly Good: Silknaturals Purple Eyeshadow


I've been meaning to put up a post on this for a while and just keep forgetting. I received a free regular size SilkNaturals I received with an order back in September. I've been wearing it for a couple of weeks now and I have to say this stuff is frigging amazing. I had to laugh when I read in Allure that purple eyeshadow is a Holy Grail color for brown eyes. Yep, sure enough is!

The shade is called 'Vineyard' and is a smoky plum color. Blurb from the website:
eyeshadow with a lipgloss purchase I did a Vineyard is kind of a muted purple- but with layers and layers of twinkle added to it. There's a little bit of gold a little bit of green and some other things to create a brilliant multi-faceted color. The pictures and swatches just don't do it justice.

I start out with dark gray liner under my eyes and on my lids, halfway across. I then use the Vineyard with mixing medium. Just a drop of medium is needed and you can turn the minerals completely liquid. Just like painting with watercolors - and no fall out onto your cheeks. I use my Loew Cornell Maxine's Mop and go back and forth my eyelid, just like I was painting. I keep going back and forth with the brush until I hit my eyebrows. The lid will be an elegant plum color and as the shadow thins out, it lightens up to pink on the browbone. One shadow, 30 seconds, done. I used to spend a good 5 minutes per eye mixing all my different colors together.

I would recommend picking up a Vineyard. Everyone who uses it loves it. It's a whopping $3.75! Remember, SilkNaturals also sells clones of popular MAC, Nars, and BB products.

Edit: Since I slacked and didn't post a pic, I found some nice photos that Shizznizzle did of her purple shadow. Not the same product, but you can see how pretty purple looks on brown eyes.
