I don’t wear very many grey or charcoal tone eyeshadows as I don’t think I could pull that kind of look at all. You guys know I’m more of a earthy, warm tone, brown shades kind of girl. So to have tried this trio shadow palette was eye opening. Continue reading to find out more.

*Sekhmet Smokey Shadow Palette
The Eye of Horus cosmetics baked Goddess shadow range can be used either dry, for a subtle day or wet for a full-intensity finish. They claim to be deeply pigmented, long wearing and has a crease-proof formula.
The texture of these shadows are soft and buttery on my finger tips, but used a makeup eyeshadow brush to apply to my lids (see photo below). I found that using them in dry form-the pigmentation was light and soft, but when added with water or in my case a MAC cosmetics fix+, you can see how much more intense they appear as they come to life. They were also easily blendable and colour could be buildable too! Using the shadows wet meant they lasted longer on the eyelids without any creases and I didn’t feel the need to touch up.
The light (matte) shade looked a little chalky when I added liquid and it didn’t show very well on my lids, however, the silver (metallic) and gun mental grey (satin) shades were bold and easy to pat on the lids without any fall outs. Overall, this trio palette would suit almost all skin tones and wear it however you like for day time glam or smokey evening eyes.
