Accessorize Eyeshadow in Copper

Here we have an Accessorize Illusion Eyeshadow in Copper for you to have a look at before their entire range is launched at the end of September for which I am rather excited. 

Their packaging is pretty nice and girly yet chic. It does not call out to any particular group of consumers but is not offensive either. 

The size of the eye shadow pan is larger than the standard MAC ones and resembles the size of Urban Decay or Stila eye shadow pans. Pans of such sizes can be a hit or a miss depending on which colour one possesses. If you like the colour you have, it is amazing to have huge quantity of it especially considering that these will retail for under a fiver. However if like me you possess a colour, in this case copper, that you will hardly ever use, the size of the pan could be rather daunting.

The colour is really pretty, its just my personal preference regarding the colour on my skin tone. Coppers make me look washed out and appear as if I have a swollen eye. 

The colour of the shadow is very pigmented as you can see below. The result is acquired with simply one swipe only. Fantastic quality and pigmentation for the price really. 

The consistency of the shadow reminds me of MAC's veluxe pearl finish and of Urban Decay shadows, both of which as you know are highly acclaimed. The consistency is very buttery and soft. I can't wait to get my hands on some colours I have been eyeing on. 

The same applies to all their other products that I had swatched on the press launch. They have some gorgeous mineralized blushers, bronzers and highlighters as well as some eye shadow duo's. Keep on eye on them when they make an entry in Superdrug and Accessorize this September. You won't be disappointed is something I can happily guarantee.
