Rave Review: Red Earth eyeshadow in 36 Iced Brownie! (FOTD)

Have you had your 'Iced Brownie' yet? Haha! I'd seen amazing swatches of Red Earth eyeshadows and how they are suppose to be smooth and rich in pigmentation! This is my first eyeshadow from them as I couldn't help but to pick this up at Sasa. It's beautiful and I wish there were more shades of brown, I'd get it all!

Here's a recent mostly skincare haul I did from Sasa! Check it out here!
 
Continue below for the review and look with this eyeshadow!

Packaging & Product!

These singles are very simply packed. In a sturdy matte black circular compact with a clear top and the back of the single is very well labelled. I like how the name, amount and basic information is all behind!

The formula of this eyeshadow is smooth and shimmery, it has a metallic finish and is very rich with an unexpected depth of reddish brown when applied all over the eyelids. I used a cream eye lid primer also by red earth (the only proper primer I have) and then I applied the shadow all over my lid. The medium taupey shade is fabulous on its own once blended well. 

This is such an easy to work with shade, I love it and everything about how it looks and applies and wears. I'd love to go back and get another shade or two if they interest me just as much.

Swatched Iced Brownie looks like a smooth metallic medium taupe...however on the eyes it has so much more depth!

Absolutely wonderful and unexpected rich red-brown undertone that gives depth at different parts of my eyelid~!

Very simple and lovely FOTD using Red Earth Illusion Lights Beauty Pro Eyeshadow in 36 Iced Brownie! I used 'Cabana Boy' blush from theBalm in this FOTD!
Absolutely love this shadow, I think I could use this and only this if I got lazy! I've almost no chance but weekends to do proper 'make up' in my opinion (powder and mascara is nothing!) So I hope to make up of my weekends if possible unless I plan to get dirty!

Paid: $16 SGD or $13 USD (Red earth was having a 20% off so I paid $12.80)

Recommend: If you get the chance to swatch this Australian brand...the formula for their powders, blush and shadows are very smooth and nicely pigmented. All very wearable shades though!

Repurchase: Yes, will look at other shades but not until next year!

Bottom line: Easy to wear, apply and great pigmentation and wear time...this shade in particular is very rave worthy!
