Review: Make Up Revolutions Awesome Metals Eye Foils in Black Diamond

C: another birthday present review today thanks to Annies excellent make up gift buying powers! I loved receiving this pigment from Make Up Revolution as it is so different to anything else in my collection!

I received this in the shade “Black Diamond” which is absolutely perfect for me as Annie knows I prefer to use a darker eyeshadow to create a smokey eye look, or to use as a liner when I am going for less dramatic eye make up. It is a dark grey foil effect shimmer and it is absolutely beautiful!

Included in the kit is a little liquid eye primer as well as a mixing tray, the idea being you drop a little primer into the tray and then mix the pigment to your desired pigmentation. You then apply this to your eyes, and build it up in layers to the desired effect! This seemed a little complicated to me… so I decided to show you my first attempt as a real review of how easy this is to use as well as how good the product itself is.

So my first attempt at using this was reasonably successful! Next time I used it I applied more colour for a more pigmented look, but it is definitely about trial and error to achieve the look you are aiming for – which is perfect really as you can go as pigmented as you dare! I also really enjoyed playing about with this – it certainly isn’t something you would use if you were in a rush, but I really enjoy spending time playing about with my make up and trying new things so if you are a beauty obsessive like me I’m sure that won’t be a problem for you!

Once applied the primer did a great job of making this stay put. It didn’t crease or melt off my face like a lot of eyeshadows tend to do in this strange heat we had been experiencing in the UK! Meaning it will be perfect for a night out when I want to create a full on dramatic eye look! All in all I love this product, mainly because I have nothing similar in my collection and it is such a fun idea!

If you fancy trying this it is only £4 and available here – there are also lots of other beautiful colours, I particularly have my eye on the Rose Gold and Emerald shades! #twolittleowls
