We’ve used the silky Benefit Velvet Eye Shadows before, but there are six spanking new powder shades for Spring 2010: Bo Peep, which is a dusky rose color, Buns (which reminds us of strawberry); Fancy Pansy (a lilac or lavender color); Mermaid (a beautiful, completely swoon-worthy green); Nice Melons (the name is pretty self explanatory); and Shamrocker (for all you Irish fanatics out there).
These shades glide on so easily and the powdery finish leaves a very subtle silken shimmer on your eyes, not unlike stardust bits. The reason I love them is because the pigments are deep and rich and stay well on my skin tones. I really hate eyeshadow that washes away after a few seconds because the reapplication time is highly irksome.
Pair this eyeshadow with a killer gel eyeliner (like Maybelline’s new Eye Studio liner) and you’ll be well on your way to glam – and we mean SERIOUSLY GLAM – eyes.
