Swatched: Technic Eye Shimmer Powder in Sapphire

Brightly coloured eye shadows and I have never been the best of friends, so this is a quick swatch post only: trust me, you do NOT want to see what I’d look like if I tried to actually WEAR this. (Or maybe you do, but only for the laughs…)

This is Technic’s Eye Shimmer in blue, and as you can see, it comes in a long tube with a sponge applicator:

It’s a really lovely shade of bright blue, which has quite a high glitter content:

Although bright, this isn’t actually very highly pigmented (well, you wouldn’t really expect it to be for the budget price of £1.99, would you?), and while you can layer it up, as I did here, don’t expect a very deep colour: it’s actually more subtle than it probably looks here – if glittery blue eyeshadow can ever be described as “subtle” – and the glitter gives it a soft shimmer rather than all-out drama.

Because I haven’t tried wearing this on my eyes, I can’t tell you how well it lasts: again, I think the price probably speaks for itself there, but if you’re looking for a cheap way to add some gorgeous colour to your life/eyes, it’s not going to cost a whole lot to find out, and there are 11 other colours to try, too.
