Fashion Fair Eyes Wide Shut Collection


Have you seen the above image on the Fashion Fair Instagram and Facebook page? I have and I have been salivating over it. Fashion Fair UK have been posting this images for their new Eyes Wide Shut collection. Ain’t it pretty? The colours really called me. The collection consists of six eye shadows and six lipsticks but I went to the store to play with the eye shadows. The colours are Pure Gold, Tahiti, Sedona, Ocean, Indigo and Livid. They fall into distinct warm and cool categories. The warm shades (Pure Gold, Tahiti and Sedona) would make the perfect smoky eye look. The Sedona is a great eyeshadow if you are new to colour as it is not a scary bright but is a reddened brown with iridescence. Tahiti is the colour that I thought I would have least love for but it is actually very beautiful on the lid great with eyeliner and lashings of mascara.

The cool shades. Oh my gosh! The purple is called Livid and I love it – I really do. It is not a deep imperial purple and it is not too blue. The Indigo blue is super flattering on brown skin and I would use this foiled as a liner as well as a wash of colour on the lids. The standout colour, however, has to be the Ocean. The touch of golden iridescence that runs through it is genius. You don’t see it in the pot but on the skin it transforms and blends beautifully with any colour that it is next to.

Fashion Fair really do great eye shadows, very pigmented, blendable with a soft almost buttery texture and the bonus with these colours is that they don’t have a lot of fall out. If you like eyeshadows, Eyes Wide Shut is definitely worth checking out.

The eyeshadows retail for £11.50 and are available online from Boots and Debenhams and selected stores and online.
