Not sure what to do with some of your funky eyeshadow hues? That’s where Eye Illusion from Smashbox comes in. This trio of iridescent shades is great for brushing over any other eyeshadow or liner. If the colour is too matte or too dark for your taste, Eyeshadow Illusion ($42 at Sephora) is a great way to customize the hue to a shade that’s right for you.
Personally, I like the idea of using the iridescent colours alone, too. It’s great for shimmering, yet subdued daytime eye makeup that’s meant to illuminate and enhance your gaze. You can also blend it with other colours to give them a luminous finish or a subtle hint of another colour. That way, if you only have a few eyeshadows at home, you can play around with Eye Illusion to create tons of different shades and finishes without literally investing in tons of different makeup products.
Smashbox, in case you don’t already know (and shame on you if you don’t!) is known for unique, trendy and quality products. I know $42 may seem a little pricey, but when you consider the different ways you can use it and that it can get you more use out of products you already own, you might agree that it’s worth the splurge.
What do you think? Or you totally on board with the matte trend or are you anxious to try out this lustrous product to experiment with shimmer and iridescence?
