The soft, lightweight, springy formula delivers hue-rich colour which will leave people asking what you use. One touch and you’ll be wired into its sensational blending power and for pro quality use the 252 large Shader Brush. The product will give you a Medium to high coverage which transforms your eyes.

The Electric Cool Eye Shadow Shades:

  • Electroplate

I’m hoping to swatch these soon to see what the colours are actually like, I’d love to try Pure Flash! or Love Power maybe these would work well as bases. Infra-Violet seems to be the most noticeable colour which really pops. Which would you try?
