Review: Alice Comsmetics – Sage
Price: $2.50 for 1/8 sample in sifter jar / $7.5 for a Full Size in sifter jar
Available: Alice Cosmetics
This is the first of the eyeshadow samples that I received from Alice and it is a pretty interesting color. It is a medium light green with gray undertones and a very slight gold shimmer. The eyeshadow is decently pigmented. I swatched the eyeshadow dry on my hand and the color came out pretty true to what you see in the jar. When I applied it wet with my Eco Tools eyeshadow brush the color came out stronger version of the dry swatch, only that the gold glitter became a slight gold sheen on top of the green. I think this color, when applied dry would make a good work / office color that would look amazing with neutral looks, to give the typical work look a pop of unique color. You can even use it wet and still have a decent work color, maybe use it as a liner with a sealer. The shadow itself is very finely milled, it is not chalky at all. It applied smoothly with no problems.
I’m not sure how long this shadow would last on the lid, during the regular day, because I use UDPP as my base, so basically everything stays for a long time. However I can tell you that I tried to wipe off my dry swatch with my finger and it is still mostly there on my hand, so I believe on drier lids, this eyeshadow would last a good time before wearing off. I do recommend that you use a base with this eyeshadow to make sure it stays.
Final Thoughts: I think this is definitely a color that would work well on almost all skin colors. I like the idea of being able to use this color in both the office and out. This is definitely NOT the typical olive green / army green color with gold shimmer. This is gray green with gold shimmer, and it’s definitely a nice addition to all my other greens. I’m a huge fan of green, and this one can stand on it’s own two feet.
