Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow- Dim Brown

This eyeshadow is just gorgeous! I haven't been this impressed with an eyeshadow for a while now, in fact I don't even really wear much nowadays, but this gem has made me keen to wear it again-the shade and formula is just what I look for. It's a baked eyeshadow and sometimes these can feel a bit dry and lack decent pigmentation but this one really wowed me when I first swatched it. It's super soft and just one swipe gives intense colour. Finally a product that lives up to it's name! The shade is quite hard to describe. It's a sort of cool toned bronze shade. Not dissimilar to Maybelline's On and On Bronze but more cooler. I think it also has some olivey/antique gold tones in it- like I said describing it is tricky!  It's shimmery but not glittery which is perfect for me- I hate getting glittery cheeks! It's quite multidimensional as the shade changes depending on the lighting, appearing more light or darker in tone. As a result this makes a great all over colour to use and is perfect for lazy days, or days when you are pushed for time but want to look like you've made some effort. I've saved the best til last though as this only cost me a mere £1.99 from Xtras. With free delivery I think it's a steal!

As you can probably guess I'd really recommend this shade, especially for the price!


  1. Ooh, that's gorgeous! Crappy name though, 'dim' doesn't exactly conjure up wonderful things. x
