I had envisioned this product/texture for 2 years now. I know that sounds like a joke, but really, no lab I met was able to create this! To be honest, I was tired of finding a "base" for every sparkly shadow I had. I imagined a shadow that was wet enough to grab but dry enough to blend and last on the eyes without fall-out. At the time, I was working with about 4 labs in LA and none were able to create such a thing. Actually, the lab has to have the capabilities, materials and machines to create such a thing. When I went to Italy to meet with new labs and learn about their technology, capabilities and products, I came across this formula. My co-worker and I looked at each other and started laughing, thinking the same thing, "Are you kidding me?!" We could not believe what we saw. A product we just imagined? I had almost given up on it & now, here it was, right in front of me! Ugh...in other words, it was meant to be. I found a lot more amazing things in Italy, but I came back to LA with my heart smiling SO big for this!
Enough about the back-end...these jewels are everything! They are metallic pressed foiled shadows that glide on like a dream! Because they are foiled shadows, it is best to be applied with your fingers - and then blended with your brushes if you'd like. I created these 3 colors specifically to compliment my Minimalist. Of course you can use, mix & match with any colors and type of eyeshadows; but these 3 shades are a perfect addition to my only matte eyeshadow palette in the Elcie Collection. Blend out your Minimalist all over and around your eyes and pop any of these shadows on your lids - so easy!
This collection is available on our website www.ElcieCosmetics.com and Naimie's Beauty Center in Sherman Oaks, 10am/PST. These shades will come back individually next year, but for now - we think its the perfect Holiday Bundle! We do have limited pieces available so make sure to snatch yours now. I cannot wait for you guys to try them!
