Paula Dorf eye shadows are one of those little-known secrets of makeup addicts. Gorgeous colors, some quite unique, beautiful finishes, extraordinary texture and quality- why is it then that so many of you reading this post don't own these pretties? It probably has to do with Paula Dorf's limited distribution and lack of marketing. Still, a color like Day Dream from the Eye Glimmer shadow range, a shimmery satin taupe that's very close to Le Metier de Beaute's Corinthian, needs to be seen and worn.
Day Dream is more low key than Corinthian, so I find myself mixing them together quite often. The silky texture of Paula Dorf's eye shadows makes them worthy of pairing with other LMdB colors. They work incredibly well together both in terms of texture and color. The more eye shadows I have from both lines the more complete my collection becomes (or that's just what I'm telling myself).
Applied over Paula Dorf eye makeup primer, Day Dream maintains its finish, color and coverage all day long and doesn't budge until it meets your makeup remover.
Bottom Line: a staple.
Paula Dorf Eye Glimmer shadows ($23) are available from Henri Bendel in NYC and pauladorf.com.
