Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Dear Dahlia Paradise Shine Eye Sequins in the shade Goddess.
I got this eyeshadow because I’ve been bombarded with this AD for the past few months, look at it and tell me you don’t want it all over your eyes.
Apparently, Dear Dahlia is an Asian brand, I didn’t know more than that, but that stupid AD hit the spot for me and I wanted to see the truth especially because there weren’t good pictures online.
Multi color glitter in a peachy base.
The packaging is very elegant, from the marble box to the bottle, everything looks super fancy (as it should, with that price)
It has a flat doe foot applicator that I love, it picks up just the right amount of product.
FORMULA & APPLICATION
The formula is very sheer and the glitter is a bit sparse. Nothing at all like the AD claims it to be. I mean, it’s pretty but not as intense as I wished.
You get a bit of glitter fall down through the day. It’s not patchy at all and you can layer it to get a more opaque look.
The doe foot applicator allows an easy application and the shadow is easy to blend with the finger. You have time to move it around but once it sets, you won’t be able to move it.
I always have to wear an eye primer or my make-up won’t last a minute. Even with cream shadows but I feel like most people would want to use it without.
- WITHOUT Primer: This shadow lasted for 8 hours on me before starting to crease. I have extremely oily lids so I was pleasantly surprised.
- WITH Primer: This shadow was bulletproof. I had it on for 12 hours and it was still perfect.
- Colour: 8/10
- Longevity: 7/10
- Application: 7/10
- Formula: 6/10
- Pigmentation: 5/10
- Packaging: 9/10
I don’t hate it, but I’m a bit upset, I was expecting so much more from looking at that AD. I mean, it’s pretty don’t get me wrong, but I like my glitters more blinding. This is a good shimmery eyeshadow but it’s not blinding enough for me. I had such high hopes. It last all day with just a bit of fall down and it’s not patchy but it’s expensive and in my opinion, not worth the price tag.
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.
