When I first set out to write my review of Shadowy Lady, it was really awful. I hated this shade when I first started using it. True, it is difficult to blend and can apply splotchy, but there’s a trick to it – placement and a light hand. When used to define the crease and line the eyes, this is such an awesome shade and really adds a unique color to your look. When I want to apply it to the crease, I go for a fluffy crease brush like Sigma’s E45 or MAC’s #286, as they deposit the color in the ideal amount. If you apply too much to the crease with this color, it WILL BE a nightmare to blend away, so less is really more. I do particularly love this color when layered under Vellum (see Look #1) – it creates such a unique look. Shadowy Lady – you’re safe. From wanting to swap you away so quickly, I think I’ll keep ya.
