Swatches- Left: Mystery Right: Dusk
The Edward Bess line only launched last July in UK. I wouldn’t say these eye shadows are something to go gaga over. They are just OK, perfect for those who love neutral shades. The shadows come in a nice suede pouch and the box has a mini applicator and a mirror included, quite handy for on-the-go touch ups. The swatches above are with a bit of eye primer underneath to enhance the colours. The shades suit my dark skin tone just fine and I can see myself creating a nude-y type look with them. These are shimmery in nature but are not as pigmented as some other eye shadows I’ve tried. You need a good few layers to get the colours out but overall, they will get the job done. The price is a little on the high side for what you get but this will certainly appeal to those who love looking made-up without the make-up, if you know what I mean.
Is this worth buying?- only if it is your piece of cake. I certainly would not recommend this to the make-up artist, unless there is a particular shade you are after that no one else in the world has.
