Starting from the left is Ruby, a gleaming neutral crimson. My favorite of the pack, it gives the most modern, edgy eye when smudged with a brown eye pencil (check out her work using it on Caroline Hirons for inspiration!) or patted on the center of an otherwise bare lid before adding a flick of black liquid liner.) This is just on the rim of my comfort zone as far as color goes, which keeps things exciting. I’m often finding myself stuck in a makeup rut or burned out on the chromed out eyeshadow effects . If you’re a Sephora VIB-type with an arsenal of eyeshadows, Ruby won’t disappoint as you probably have nothing like it in your repertoire; you’ll be reaching for it time and again. Bonus: you can tap it onto lips and cheeks to get a fresh berry stain effect, making it a useful product when traveling.
Dew, top center, is a completely clear gloss. It’s definitely a product you see on editorials. Dew is the perfect name - it reflects light without looking too wet and there’s no shimmer at all. It’s fresh worn solo, but also modernizes any powder shadow texture when layered on top.
Glimmer, bottom right, is a universally flattering warm and sparkling nectarine. Tapped on the moveable part of the eyelid, it enlivens any eye color. And this shade being endlessly useful, adds a sensual post-summer tan effect to the cheeks. I can’t think of anyone this wouldn’t look amazing on and it’s a mainstay in my purse.
But again, if you’re at a loss what to pick up, make sure you get Ruby, pictured again below for good measure. And for further inspiration, check out Burberry makeup artist Wendy Rowe test driving the Lid Tints here.
