Anyone who knows me well enough, is fully aware of my love for glitter & sequins - so why wouldn’t I pull out all the stops this forthcoming week? A glittery twist on the classic smokey eye, since the Big Day is imminent.
I’d been researching the perfect smokey-eye component for Christmas 2016, so I was intrigued at first when I discovered on The Future Kept a little tin of Eye Coal by Fat & The Moon. I decided to give it a whirl knowing it was an all-natural product, and due to the fact that this inky balm was supplied in a solid tin-form as opposed to a chunky pencil or liquid.
I love the simplicity of this little container; inspired by tried and tested ingredients seen on their travels to India, this little tin of jet black goodness contains only 4 ingredients.
Black Oxide Pigment
This means less toxic fillers and junk, to provide a clean and gorgeous product that does exactly what it says on the tin.
Upon use - it’s fully matte and surprisingly not greasy. It stays exactly where it’s placed and doesn’t slip around the skin like you’ve rolled around in oil or crease up in the eyelid. It sat perfectly all day & is happy to be smudged around like an eyeshadow or with the right tool, perfected into the slickest cat eye flick.
I’ve used it both as an eyeliner & a shadow in these images, using no other eyeshadows, and dotted a little loose glitter under my eyes for a Festive Twinkle.
Merry Christmas guys, here's to 2017!
