MY SPRING TIME LOOK WITH NATURE REPUBLIC OLIVE COOKING DUAL SHADOW

Nature Republic, the store i just have to, as in have to, visit whenever i'm at sm north (i mean trinoma so i have to cross edsa towards sm north).  but purchases from Nature Republic always seem worth it.  case in point this lovely baked shadow duo.  the #1
it has instructions in english.
and what it looks like with its packaging.  the inner corner of the eye shade and the brow shade is marbled with some kind of periwinkle blue that doesn't really show up on the skin but gives a nice sheen when blended with the mustard yellow and silvery pink.  the salmon shade you see below is actually a kind of cooler pink.  it's just my camera made it look warmer on the picture.
it's a tad muted down without eye primer underneath but still wearable if you pack on the color.
what it looks like on my lids with eye primer underneath.
a simple every day look for work or school. perfect for summer and well springtime in countries with spring. something fresh and natural looking.
Likes:

  • packaging the clear case makes it easier for me to know what shade is inside!  it's very compact, too. great for travel
  • pigmented with or without eye primer underneath
  • very little fall out
  • nice sheen
  • finely milled considering it's baked
  • does not crease, yep, i've worn this without eye primer underneath
  • does not fade throughout the day
  • doesn't sting my eyes
  • locally available and now nature republic has a multiply account, so they are available online, too
  • great for a summer or spring time look!
Dislikes:
  • 500 plus for just two shades
  • sm north is out of my way (ano pa kaya ang fairview at festival mall LOL) more branches please!
will i repurchase? - i will in this same shade, too.  it's just so wearable
do i recommend - yes, specially to those women who wanna start using makeup or those women who don't want to wear 'too much' makeup

You look really pretty! I haven't like Nature Republic shadows in the past, but it's good to know this one is actually decent! Weird name though...

Marge said...

hahaha these korean products and their names, pretentiousness + trying to be trendy + english as a 2nd language = that
nature republic even has this makeup remover wipe called herbLIER - oh ha LOL an adjective indicating it has more herbs in adverb form #grammarnazihere
but i love lambasting it, it's fun LOL

Rae said...

Nothing beats Etude House Lip & Eye Remover. Hahaha.

Marge said...

You're really beautiful! that eyeshadow's expensive! but it suits you really well :D

Marge said...

hi there! thanks so much for the compliment. true, this eye shadow duo is on the pricey side. at least it just takes a little shadow to make it look this pigmented already so this will last me quite awhile ;-)

i would have to agree, at least a little goes a long way and it is rather pigmented and not powdery ;-) so it's a quality product ^_^
