MUFE Eyeshadow in Irisee

Hello my dear readers, friends and fellow beauty junkies. I left Manila last Feb 3 and i'm back here in LA now for a much needed break. Love the cold weather but i'm starting to have colds due to the change in temp. I'm even sneezing as i'm writing this...sigh:-( I wish to be back in tiptop shape in no time at all. 


Right now i'm gonna post this shadow powder that i've been using for quite sometime now. It's a nice shade any purple lover would love to own...



Irisee

This is my "go-to' powder whenever i'm not fully satisfied with any of my purple eyeshadows. It comes to the rescue when the color i'm wearing is not bright or vivid enough. I just layer it over and voila--eyes that instantly stands out! Sometimes i use this powder alone (as shown in the picture above) just for the color itself. The sparkly purple shadow never fails to add oomph and dazzle to my eyes. It shimmers beautifully in different lightings.

Finely-milled powder


Very pigmented

My only gripe is that application can be quite messy. As with any loose powder inside a pot, the finely-milled powder tends to scatter all over the place the moment i twist the cap open. So placing a clean tissue underneath the pot is VERY helpful. You can dab and wipe the excess pigments off it. And you won't have to worry about staining your shirt or your bag.

This is how it looks like


PROS:
-highly-pigmented
-beautiful color
-lovely shimmers
-long lasting
-hypoallergenic
-compact pot
-pot will last for ages
-reasonably priced

CONS:
-fallouts
-messy application

WILL I REPURCHASE?

Yes!

I would love to try MUFE's other colors too. A rainbow of these pots would be fantastic! Anything sparkly and glittery would be perfect for me. But for now i'm still completely satisfied with this purple pot so all those other colors can wait for the meantime.  

I leave you with a few snapshots i took here one lazy afternoon...


Btw, my flight was one of the bumpiest flights i've ever had. I normally brush off any turbulence, but 4 hours prior to landing the plane was shaking like crazy (for a long time). Man, i was clutching my seat tightly and  when i looked out the window it was still pitch black. I was telling myself that if the plane crashes and i survive, i don't want to be thrown in total darkness.  Just the thought alone terrifies me! I even saw my aunt fumbling for her life vest readying herself for the worst. Hehe. And to think she is already a veteran when it comes to long flights. Also, the lady beside me brought out her prayer book and even farted twice (out of nervousness). Yikes! 

It was pure relief when we finally landed. Thank God!... i can't wait to raid Sephora, Ulta and even CVS drugstore products again! 


Thanks for dropping by my site again. I look forward to hearing from you girls!

WARMEST HUGS!!!

I have yet to get the hang of using mineral shadows. Mine ends up everywhere else except where I meant it to be. :))
