Eye Candy: Helena Rubinstein Loose Eye Shadow in Plum Rock

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 6 - 2012

Urgh, I wish we could get Helena Rubinstein stuffs in the UK.  I’m holding out for when I hit up Prague in the Autumn.  I spotted this loose eye shadow and couldn’t resist a dabble with the discounters, it’s probably about 7 years old or something – I’m not thinking about it.  Just look at the pretty.

The bronzy-plum blend flatters my eye-colouring and the metallic sheen isn’t too much on my eyelids, it’s a beautiful shade that really needs primer to make it stick.  The first time I wore it (without priming), it slid off within the hour!  I like the decanting method with the teeny hole, I just tap a tiny bit into the lid and it seems to make far less mess than when I try to just touch the brush to the powder a la MAC pigments.

I bought this from Direct Cosmetics, priced at £6.99

    Please don’t wish you could get items from a brand that does animal testing. I’m sure you can find eyeshadow just as pretty from brands that don’t torture animals.

  5. WOW! Just WOW, I must have that!!!
