As you know I love glitter and couldn't wait to do a review on this!
Fearne Shimmering Eyes Set- Contains the following
*4 x Eye Shimmers and Glitters (Two are glitters and the other two are shimmery eyeshadows)
*1 x Applicator (Sponge tipped as I think a brush would make the glitter flick everywhere)
*1 x Eye Shadow Base Stick
I can say that I think the set is really good and I especially love loose glitters to play around with. There are two shimmery eyeshadows that are very nice and pigmented the first is a burnt copper and the other is a deep blackened blue silvery grey. As for the loose glitters, the particles are just as chunky as a standard glitter eyeliner, the first is a sparkling gold and the other is multi-coloured with a silver base almost holographic!
As for the base it really doesn't do the job. I find that it applies nicely and smoothly but there isn't enough stickiness for the glitters to adhere too. It dries too quickly and the finish is almost a powder eyeshadow feel. Another problem with it as it's the wrong colour for a base, a tan champagne colour (you can see it looking murky on the silver in my swatch). I think a pearly transparent white kohl would've done the trick or actually I think NYX jumbo pencils would have just the right texture. I would use this under a pigmented white kohl pencil or NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk.
Overall a lovely set for glitter lovers everywhere but just don't expect the 'base' to be a base.
This was a GIFT
