Some lovely pretties from Eye of Horus to show you today!
Firstly the Isis Sun Goddess Eye Shadow Palette (£29.95).
A trio of baked precious metal shades, Enigma Myst, Chalice Bronze and Sacred Husk all are sort of shimmery, but seem to hold the light. You can use them wet or dry but at the time of writing I’ve only used them dry.
With the palette you also get a handy little guide, I love guides!
They are incredibly soft and smooth to apply, a little dusty, but nothing problematic. The finish of these shadows is beautiful, they do glow. My problem with them is probably to do with my lack of finesse, but I find the colours are so similar that they merge into one and try as I might I can’t get them to look like the guide pictures at all. No matter, they are lovely.
I’ve been applying with a Eye of Horus brush, which I can’t find on the retailer’s site at the moment but it’s very nice, super soft, and picks up a good amount of product.
The other item I’ve been wearing a lot is the Nubian Goddess Pencil (£13). I already have the Teal one which I reviewed here. Nubian is a deep, matte brown.
A beautiful brown pencil that smudges like a dream, or stays put just where you want it.
Here’s how I’ve been wearing all of the above!
Very nice, I think the Eye of Horus Pencils are really spectacular and whilst the eye shadows are really lovely I think they are a little on the pricey side for three shadows in a cardboard container. I’d love to see what someone with real skill could do with them though!
The Eye of Horus range is available from the wonderful Cocktail Cosmetics.
