The first item I have to show you from the CVS clearance sale is an eyeshadow trio by Rimmel in Maritime, which features a silvery-grey blue (think the color of seafoam), a hazy aqua that leans towards robin's egg blue, and a color close to a brighter wedgewood blue. It was 75% off at my local CVS, bringing it down from $6.49 to $1.59. Not too bad! These colors are bright, but all a little bit hazy, making them not as shocking as a truer version of these colors would be, which is perfect for me. The formula is powdery but smooth, and the pigmentation is decent enough; you're not going to get opaque, vibrant color right off the bat, but you'll get something close to a true color if you use this over a primer and a white or ivory cream eyeshadow or base.
Here are some quick shots of the product itself:
|No flash; very true-to-life|
|With flash; gives you an idea of how these will flash when the light hits them.|
If these colors are your deal, this is a great buy! And if, like me, you don't tend to wear really electric blues, this is a nice compromise, and a way to wear the color without it looking too over the top!
