Review - By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon

By Terry Ombre Blackstars are quickly becoming some of my favorite products (I've already mentioned this one in my March Favorites!) However, due to their hefty price tag (who said $43 was okay?!?!) I am slowly acquiring them. This one was sent to me as a birthday gift from the lovely bloggers of Pigmented Lips and Looking Good Enough to Eat. (u da real MVPs!)

Wrist swatch of Bronze Moon
Bronze Moon is a deep burnished bronze shade that seems to glow from within. The cream formula glides on effortlessly, and is easily blended out with a finger or a fluffy brush. I recommend using a synthetic brush due to the cream formula, natural fibers just don't play as nicely. One swipe is wonderfully pigmented, as you can see from the swatch. The shadow sets quickly, but not too quickly that you can't blend out the edges. I wore this alone over primer, and did not experience any creasing throughout the day.

The packaging is a twist up pencil, which I prefer because that means you won't be losing any product to sharpening. There's a colored stripe near the bottom of the barrel indicating the shade of the eyeshadow contained within. Unfortunately, it isn't the most luxe feeling packaging, which I feel might be a little wanted at the high end level. Thankfully, the product performance makes up for it.

The great thing about this eyeshadow is that it can be applied, sheered out at the edges, and then the color can be built up. This shade can be used alone for a smoky daytime look, concentrating the most color near the lashline, and then blending and smudging out from there.

  • Long wearing
  • Pigmented
  • Smooth application
  • Twist up packaging
  • Hefty pricetag
  • Packaging is not the most luxurious for the price point

  1. I find that I can't use any of my shadow sticks by themselves, I need a primer underneath (which sucks, but what can you do when you have oily lids?) That's a gorgeous color though!
