What the brand says
Accessorize Metallic eyeshadows are perfect for adding a spot of glamour with their vibrant foil-effect finish. The collection is available in three shades Lilac, Copper and Gunmetal.
For the purpose of the review I am testing the eyeshadow in Copper. The eyeshadow comes in simple girly packaging with a cute flower and butterfly design that really fits in with Accessorize image. The eyeshadow has a deep intense metallic shimmer that can be seen throughout the whole shadow. The top of the shadow is smooth and creamy and I love the colour.
I remember trying cream eyeshadows as a teenager and one thing I hated more then anything was how liable they are to crease. I was hoping this would be a little different as it’s been a fair few years since I was a teen and technology has moved on a little. The consistency of the eyeshadow is really light so after applying I had a thin layer of gold shadow on my eyelids. Not long after applying the eyeshadow started to crease and by the evening there was just a small film of glitter that remained.
The eyeshadow didn’t crease as badly as some cream eyeshadows I’ve tried but this may simply be down to the consistency of the shadow. Ultimately it is a bit too faint for my liking and I like my eyeshadow to last.
I give it 1/5
