I have had this eyeshadow for quite a while now and today I thought I would share with you what I thought of it.
I got this in a Mystery Box which was in the sale for around £20 and it came with 2 eyeshadows, 2 nail polishes, a precision ink and a liquid metal. I would never normally spend a lot on single eyeshadows the Illamasqua ones cost £15.50 which is a lot of money I would rather spend that money on a palette rather than just one eyeshadow. The packaging is quite nice it looks very high end the only problem is that due to it being an odd shape it can be difficult to store.
Shiver is a gorgeous shimmery highlighter colour which has gold undertones. I often use this as an inner corner and brow bone highlighter. Occasionally I will wear this as an all over colour on my lids. I like to apply it on top of a cream base to give it more of an impact. I like to apply it on top of Calvin Klein’s Tempting Glimmer in Bare Silk or the Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Stick in Vanilla Sky. I have also been wearing it with the other Illamasqua eyeshadow I have. I also have Never which is a matte blue which I have been using to line my upper lash line. The colours work really well together and I have been enjoying wearing them. The pigmentation is ok but considering it is a high end eyeshadow it is not amazing. I would not want to spend £15 on this eyeshadow as I don’t think the quality is any better than some drugstore eyeshadows I have tried.
Overall I do really like this eyeshadow but I would be reluctant to buy another Illamsaqua eyeshadow as the 2 that I have tried have not been any better than some cheaper ones I have tried. I think I would only purchase another if it was on sale or the colour was really unique.
