Alva Organic Liquid Eye Shadow

I like my self a break from slapping on the usual powder eye shadows and this is when I resort to my favourite Liquid Eye shadow as of now, Alva Liquid Eye Shadow

I have the one in Bronzed Hazel and I picked up this shade as I prefer some warm tones on the eyes during winters rather than the pastels. I feel this adds just the right amount of colour to the eyes and compliments hazel/green eyes pretty well.

The texture of this is quite unique, more of a mousse rather than a liquid I would say. It is not runny at all, in fact foams up a little on application hence I say mousse. It comes with a doe foot like applicator which is quite easy to use.

Once I blend it, it turns almost into a powdery finish and dries in a jiffy, which is great as I hate to wait for things on my face to dry!

Isn't the colour just perfect? A gorgeous warm wearable bronze. It reminds of MAC Woodwinked to an extent, just less shimmery.

I do feel that I need two layers to achieve the exact colour as seen in the tube, so I would call this a bit sheer. It is however buildable and lasts for quite a few hours without budging.

Great for a quick pop of colour when you're in a hurry. Just apply some on and dab dab dab...remember this will work best if you apply it in a stippling motion rather than drag and blend. Get it?

It is organic and suitable for sensitive eyes. They have some other pretty colours too. Check them out at www.mypure.co.uk.
