I’ll wear These Sunday Riley Eyeshadows any type of Day of the Week: The new Prismasilk Eye colors From Sunday Riley

Sunday Riley Eyeshadows in Siberian Sable, French press as well as bit Black Dress

I keep implying to ask you about Sunday Riley! They’re a fairly new charm brand, quite high end (prices ranging from $26 for an eyeshadow single to $295 for a skin care serum), as well as offered at Barneys new York as well as Bergdorf Goodman stores.


That name is all type of awesome, isn’t it? Sunday Riley… seems like one of Katniss Everdeen’s friends/adversaries.

(SIDE NOTE: I’m so thrilled about that movie! I started re-reading the very first book last night.)

There truly is a Sunday Riley behind the brand, as well as she’s from the Lone star State. Sunday started the line back in 2009 with a handful of anti-aging products including plant extracts believed by native Americans to possess medicinal properties.

Being from Texas (her household traces its roots to before it was part of the United States), she spent summers with her granny discovering about a few of the most helpful plants.

Years later she took that understanding as well as produced the NV-5 timeless Complex, a blend of five botanicals that, according to the company, detoxify, heal as well as recharge the skin. Now, it’s the trick component in her skin care products.

Sunday just recently broadened the line to include color cosmetics, as well as I spent a long time with a few of her Prismasilk Eye color eyeshadows last weekend.

If what they state is true — that range is the flavor of life — these eyeshadows are hot! They’re offered in 28 shades spanning matte, satin as well as iridescent finishes, expense $26 each as well as can be used either wet or dry.

I’ve been playing with Siberian Sable (a awesome brown satin), French press (a brownish taupe satin) as well as bit Black gown (a sheer black satin)…

Wearing Siberian Sable

Wearing French Press

The packaging, with its thick, remove covers, reminds me a bit of Shu Uemura. Simple, as well as not precisely fashion-forward, however it feels durable as well as gets the task done. One good thing about the remove plastic tops is that it makes the colors simple to spot.

With the exception of bit Black Dress, which applies quite sheer on me, these smooth powders deposit a great offer of pigment on my lids. According to the PR, the powders include something Sunday Riley phone calls “micronized spherical pigment particles,” which is elegant talk for “round silica bits coated with pigment.”

And the texture? Oh, the texture… So soft as well as smooth. Gradients as well as subtle shifts are simple with these, as well as I barely have to exert any type of energy swiping my clean to soften the seams between the colors.

Better still, after effects isn’t a issue with these. While applying, I don’t spot any type of on my lower lash lines or cheeks, as well as as for wear time, the colors cling to my lids all the time long, refusing to fade or crease.

Everything adds as much as a appealing product, even at $26. The pans include a large 4.8 grams of product, which is significantly much more than a MAC eyeshadow single ($15 for 1.5 grams) as well as one from NARS ($24 for 2.2 grams). Per gram, it works out to $5.61 for Sunday Riley, $9.37 for MAC as well as $10.90 for NARS.

Not poor at all.

These completely remind me of NARS shadows at the top of their game, as well as I can already sense a new obsession in the making.

I can’t wait to try more!

An appetite for reading

Last night I discovered that re-reading The Hunger games numerous hours after dinner can result in hunger pains. Yup, I was re-reading the very first couple chapters last night in bed, as well as when I got to a part where Katniss as well as Gale were eating bread, berries as well as goat cheese wrapped in basil, my stomach started rumbling.


Mmm…goat cheese.
