Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Bronze
Highly pigmented, this could be used as a liner as well, and I was a bit flummoxed as to how the Amazonian cream shadow differed from the Amazonian cream liners, which I reviewed yesterday. They apply and look very similar on, with one small difference. Shimmering Bronze was slightly thinner in consistency - in fact you can see a bit of build up in the green liner in left photo, whereas Shimmering Bronze was smooth with no build up.
The other difference became evident when I swiped the swatches with a cleansing towelette. After about 3 vigorous swipes, you can see that Shimmering Bronze is quite smeared and dissipated, whereas the black and green clay liners are still mostly intact. The green liner smudged where it had caked up a bit.
The Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream eyeshadows come in 5 different shades and retail for $19. I do like them and would be interested in trying one of the lighter shades, although I'm more likely to buy them if they are part of a set.
