One of the things you'll learn while applying your eyeshadow is called the transition shade. Transition shade is a shade which is 1 to 2 tones darker than your normal skin tone of your eyelids. Before when I was starting venturing into makeup, I encountered difficulties finding a right shade that's 2 or less darker than my skin tone since I do have a very dark discoloration in my area or more specifically around my eyes. I also went through buying a couple of shadows thinking they are the one but after trying a couple of times they end up being piled in the corner of my makeup stash untouched & forgotten. Then, I found this little gem during the time I was makeup shopping (which by the way I love doing the most whenever I go to the mall hahaha)
The Body Shop colour crush in Chocolate linger.
Packaging : Comes in a small transparent round compact which is good to see the shades immediately without going through opening each one by one just to look for a shade.
Net weight : 1.5 g / 0.05 oz a little larger in size & weight compared to MAC eyeshadow which is 1.3 g / 0.04 oz
The Body Shop Colour Crush in Chocolate Linger is a light medium cool toned chocolate taupe brown.
In the pan it's a cool toned brown but when you swatched it, there's a warm toned that's emanated in the shadow though a little downside is that a little powdery so be careful of fall outs when applying it. I suggest you use a flat eyeshadow brush that has a short, stiff bristle & try to applying it by patting the shadow instead of swiping.
A closer look at the swatch you can see clearly the powdery product.
What about you? Are you applying a transition shade? Do you have a particular shade? Love to know it.
