Review of Bella' Pierre shimmer powder eyeshadow in earth

Morning you beauties!!

Here's a review of bella pierre's shimmer powder eyeshadow. I've written another post before on their primer, face powder and blush (here) so I was excited to try their shimmer powder eyeshadow too in Earth.

Colour: 10/10 The colour is a shimmery (not glittery)  rose gold colour which I've absolutely fallen in love with.  It's a beautiful neautral earthy tone, that can be worth during the day when lightly applied or for the wow factor at night when applied all over.  The shimmer is called Earth but it isn't brown at all, more of a bonzed gold.  My swatch probably shows you the colour much better on the third picture though!

Product:This is a really highly pigmented shimmer eyeshadow and I love how it stays on for hours even without primer.  It is a little messy to apply so try to pack as much product onto your brush before you apply.

Application: I used a small angular brush and lined the eyes (both top and bottom lid) and then smudged it a little with my fingers to give a golden shimmer to my eyes.  I think this eyeshadow goes great with lashings of black mascara as it really brings out the lashes when you have such a golden shimmer behind it.

Alternative uses:  I also think this is a great product to be used as a highlighting shimmer on the cheeks or right on the inner corner of your eyes when creating a smokey eye effect in order to bring out the colours.  I've also read that Bella Pierre eyeshadow shimmers can also be used as a liquid eyeliner by first wetting your hand a little then dipping your product packed brush into it before drawing it across the lid.

I would definitely recommend this particular shade from the Bella Pierre eyeshadow range as I personally think its a great colour to really bring out the best or dark long lashes.

 Bella' Pierre shimmer powder eyeshadow in earth* retails at £12.99 from HQ hair (here) and is well worth the money as these powder eyeshadow shimmers usually last well beyond a year.
