I was introduced to the joys of marbled eyeshadows a few years ago, and while I currently don’t own too many of them, for a few months I’ve been obsessed with this one from Vincent Longo. The Pearl X Eyeshadows come in five different shades, the one I own is Code 6 Pink.
Admittedly, when I first received it I was a little scared about the grey shade in there. I have light skin with warm undertones and grey has always washed me out. It’s a color that I’ve virtually eliminated from my wardrobe so I wasn’t overly excited to put it on my face. Luckily, I was dead wrong about the grey in this eyeshadow.
When mixed together the eyeshadow is a lovely shimmery pale lavender pink color. If you have brown eyes you will absolutely love this eyeshadow – it really sets off my brown eyes, which a quality not found in many eyeshadows IMHO.
The swatch above is pretty true to life – the grey and blue give depth to the pink, so it goes from being a basic shadow to one with more depth. The texture is pretty silky, and the color payoff is off the charts.
Each Vincent Longo Pearl X Eyeshadow runs about $25, which is more on the pricey side, but considering the color payoff and quality of the product, and the fact that it’s one of those products that will last forever, if you can, I think it’s a splurge worth making. You can pick it up on the Vincent Longo site, here.
