Sunday Riley Indigo Waves 120 Prismasilk Eye Shadow







My love affair with Sunday Riley makeup continues (and apparently it's contagious: Sabrina went shopping and has some gorgeous photos on the Beauty Look Book). Indigo Waves 120 Prismasilk eye shadow fills a gap I had in my color wardrobe: despite its name, this is more of a grayed sea blue. Depending on the light, I can see a sea foam hue, an almost cadet blue base or a stormy sky color.

Needless to say, this Sunday Riley color is very flattering to dark brown eyes. It can be applied lightly the way I did in my swatch (that's how I normally wear such colors) or packed on and built up to dramatic levels. If you use a damp brush, the finish will be intense and metallic and the blue base shines through beautifully.

The texture of all Sunday Riley eye shadows I tried so far is delicate and finely milled (see Leprechaun here, I'll review a couple of others in coming weeks). It's a quality makeup line with complex colors that give excellent results, blend beautifully and will delight the makeup addicts among us.

Bottom Line: there's a lot more Sunday Riley in my future.

Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Color ($26 each) is exclusive to Barneys.

  2. I took a look at the other colors, Leprechaun looks lovely and very easy to wear. I'm looking forward to that review from you.
    I bet Indigo Waves would be quite glamorous as a smokey eye.
