Good afternoon, I hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday. Today I wanted to review and create a tutorial using the Physicians Formula Extreme Shimmer Shadow Nude Palette.
First off, can we just take a moment to appreciate the colors and sparkle this palette has to offer.This palette is full of nothing but shimmer shades, ranging from light to darker shades. It swatches beautifully on to the skin.
Now, I noticed something when I swatched them and I honestly don’t know if this happens with every other eyeshadow out there.But the way the eyeshadow looks different from how you apply it. I’ve tried a flat shader brush, my finger, a blending brush and a sponge tip applicator, and they all look different. The picture below has the swatches in that order going down.
For me I got the most pigmentation with using my finger. But using the blending brush worked out when using one of these shades in the crease because I hate using shimmer shades in my crease, and it takes most of the shimmer out. Now on to the tutorial.
This palette doesn’t have names for the shades, so I just numbered them.
First I primed my lids with the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer and then put scotch tape on my outer corners. Then with a blending brush I put shade on my crease.
Then with that same brush, I put shade on my brow bone.
Then with my finger, I put shade on the inner half of my lid.
Next I put shade on the outer half of my lid with my finger.
Then with an angled blending brush I put shade in my outer corner.
Then I used the Loreal Infallible Gel Lacquer 24 Hour Liner then curling my lashes and topping it off with the Maybelline Great Lash Big Mascara.
Overall, I really like these shadows and how creamy they are. There is some fallout with them, but it all depends on how you apply it to your eyes. I personally think that using your fingers is the way to get the best and most pigmentation. I hope you found this review and tutorial helpful. Thank you again for reading!
