I'm a fan of Sue Devitt makeup and have several Silky Sheen eye shadows in my regular rotation. I was thrilled to get Nordland as a GWP recently, since it's been on my "to buy" list for a while now. The color is a smoky brown based purple that goes very taupish mauve on my skin (wrist and lid alike). It's as neutral as it is pigmented, and the silky texture makes applying and blending a breeze.
You will notice that the finish of Nordland is a little different than that of the three colors I showed in my older post. It's less metallic and looks like a light shimmer over a matte base. That's how it appears on the lid, though I'm pretty sure I used a different base in the previous post. I get more sheen when I use the Sue Devitt shadows over Kanebo Sensai eye base than over the one from Urban Decay.
Bottom Line: Very pretty.
Sue Devitt Silky Eye Shadows ($18) are available from select department stores and suedevittbeauty.com.
