Today we have another new product launch from Accessorize for you viewing pleasure!
This time it is in the form of an baked eyeshadow which comes in 10 shades
and retailing for £2.95 per shadow.

The packaging is really basic and not as pretty as we have come to expect from Accessorize,
it is transparent and not as charming as the others in the line none the less it is practical
as you can instantly see the shade housed inside.
I have dropped tested this shadow and can happily report that there was no damage
what so ever to the product nor the packaging.

The shade I have is named Ava (what a beautiful name) and I would best describe it as a truffle type shade,
it is basically a grey that does have a warm brown notes which makes it a little different
from most greys in my stash, shades such as Ava do really well blended into light neutrals
and work with all eye colours which is fairly rare.
The finish as with most baked type products is that of a shimmer nature
but this shade is not metallic.

Sadly the pigmentation of this particular  Accessorize Silk Baked Eyeshadow is poor
which is rather unexpected from Accessorize as every other product I have tested by the brand
was packed with pigmented and applied which such ease - I'm thinking I may have a dud
and will pick up another shade in the range today to see if my theory is true!
Anyway Ava was chalky and had next to no pigment when swatched and applied,
a primer made next to no difference it only deepened the shade a smidgen but the result was still lack lustre
and not what I have come to expect from Accessorize at all.
You can of course wet the shade and apply it foiled but admittedly it didn't make a huge difference.
In terms of wear (unprimed with oily lids)  it lasted for a little over 4 hours and then began to crease
with primer it lasted just over 6 hours and again creased.

Product Summary
Round Up - A pretty enough brown/grey shade but it lacks pigment.
Best For -  A light wash of colour.
Pigmentation - (2/10) Next to no pigment but I do believe this may be a dud, I shall report back.
Availability - Selected Accessorize and Superdrug stores £2.95
