Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatches of the VIEVE Eye Wand in the shade Sand.
In case you don’t know, VIEVE is the brand founded by YouTuber Jamie Genevieve who I actually don’t follow, I know her and I think she is GORGEOUS but I struggle to understand her accent, I do follow her on IG though.
These eyeshadow sticks really intrigued me, I don’t know why, but I do love a matte cream eyeshadow, to be honest, I wanted something a bit darker to use alone, this shade is a smidge darker than my skin tone so I can use it as an all-over base.
My eyeshadow primer of choice has been the Nars one for about 10 years, it’s the only thing that lasts on me so when I tried this without that one underneath I was SHOCKED! It lasted so well.
It comes in six shades to work for every skin tone but you can get a darker/lighter shade and use it alone and you can find it on CultBeauty for 29$.
It is a completely matte light beige colour.
The packaging is a thin and long tube in a hard plastic material. The shade name is written on the back. It is really nice and sturdy, I like it.
It’s a stick so it’s super easy to use.
The formula is very creamy and a bit sticky, if you want to use it as an eyeshadow primer you have to dab a light layer of powder on top of it.
It’s very pigmented and will cover all the veins and discolorations on the lids. It’s not patchy at all.
You have to work quickly because once it dries you won’t be able to blend it.
It’s very easy to apply and blend, just be quick and do one eye at a time.
I used it as an eye primer with eyeshadow on top it lasted for 8 hours on me before starting to crease. I have extremely oily lids so I was pleasantly surprised.

I’m so impressed. I love the shade, it’s perfect to cancel all the veins on my lid. It is insanely easy to use and long-lasting. If you are looking for a new eyeshadow base you’ll love this one. My eyelids are quite a harsh test, this on me performs like the Urban Decay Primer Potion so if you like that one, you’ll love this one too.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
