There's only one way to begin this first impression post and that is to simply say, I ADORE this eyeshadow. The BY TERRY Ombre Blackstar eyeshadow in Frozen Quartz packs a hefty price tag and at £28.00 it's not cheap by anyone's standards, but on first impressions I'm in love.
In Space NK, I swatched 3 different shades on the back of my hand, took a picture and uploaded to Twitter as I was having trouble deciding which to purchase. I read through the replies and then decided to try and rub the swatches off - they didn't budge. So I grabbed the hand sanitiser... nope, still there... these shadows took about 2 squirts of sanitiser and some surgical spirit to get off my hand with an awful lot of rubbing! The persistence of the swatch vs remover made me gasp. I was immediately impressed.
I also love how effortless it is to apply. It's a one swipe wonder and by finishing with a little smudge of your finger, you're good to go. It may seem crazy to spend so much money on one colour, but when you try them you'll understand why.
The Ombre Blackstar Eye shadows definitely have some fantastic staying power - even after a long day at work, they're still there.
After the first couple of days, I love this product... but stay tuned for an in depth review when I get to know it a little better.
