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
