Fancy Pansy Purple Eyeshadow

2 Jan

Happy Monday!  The holiday season is officially over.  Bummer.  However, I’m looking forward to the summer time!  I love hot weather!

My craving for summer weather has transitioned over into my make-up… that’s when I came across this lavender gem:

It’s Benefit Velvet Eyeshadow in the color Fancy Pancy.  One of the best eyeshadows I’ve ever used.  Check it out!

Fancy Pansy is a cool toned lavender with a hint of iridescent lilac shimmer sheen.

My thoughts: The texture is silky, smooth, velvety, soft, and buttery.  It’s finely milled so it blends easily.  I get little to no fall out.  The color reminds me of spring and summer and it really makes my brown eyes “pop.”

I’m surprised that I haven’t heard more about these eyeshadows because they are really solid, great quality.

The packaging is really cute (I’m a sucker for cute packaging!).  It even comes with a little paper insert that gives you different ways to use the eyeshadow (it’s a nice touch!).

Overall:  I am in love with the color alone, and the fact that the formula is AMAZING makes this one of my favorite products, ever.  It wears a good 8 hours on me.  It’s a really pretty, soft, purple that’s not over the top.

Glitter rating 5 / 5

Benefit Velvet Eyeshadows are $18.00 for 0.11oz.  You can purchase them from their website or any Sephora or Ulta.

    […] My thoughts: Great quality!  LOTS of pigment, blends easily.  I get a good 7-8 hours wear time out of them.  A teensy bit on the powdery side, I get some fallout.  Nothing major though.  These are drugstore versions of the Benefit’s Velvet Eyeshadow. […]
