In a world of sleek metallic packaging there's something charmingly retro about the plastic floral (think Holly Hobbie) compact of Fresh Eye Shadow Trios. But the reason I picked this one, Lost World, was the colors that seemed to fill a small gap in my eye shadow collection. Obviously, I need to own every possible shade ever created.
Lost World holds Maya (a subtle beige shimmer), Torrente (a surprisingly pale sheer celadon) and Lost World (a super pigmented mossy brown). The texture is soft and the quality is a lot better than one owuld expect from the packaging. The shadows blend beautifully once you adjust to the quantity of each one you need to create the desired look. Lost World (the color) is great as a daytime liner when applied with a dense thin brush. I also used it with a fixative gel as a liquid liner and loved the result.
A primer is essential to keep the shadows in place from morning to night. Otherwise the soft and crumbly texture might not last on the lid, especially on humid days or oily skin.
Bottom Line: I really really like it. Corazon Del Mar (taupe ans slate blue!) is now calling my name.
Fresh Eye Shadow Trio ($32) is available from Sephora and Fresh boutiques.
