Shady business


Good eye shadows are hard to come by, especially when they combine more than one shade. I often end up using just the one and wasting the other. But the new Terre D’Oc eye shadow duo collection is a real find. Not only are the products natural and organic – so you know that you are not harming your skin in any way – but the shades themselves are spot on. I tried a combination of Rose and Prune Takato (number 603) and it was stunning. The rose shade is a very natural colour that blends in adding a little sheen to the eyelid, whilst the prune shade is that lovely in between colour that isn’t quite grey, plum or brown – ideal to accentuate your eye liner.  And the texture is so soft and creamy – almost powdery –  that it just melts onto your eyelids making application really easy. Active ingredients of organic camellia oil and natural waxes give a soft, silky and long lasting finish, so it stays on all day long. You can apply it by using a brush or your fingers – it’s so soft that I used my fingers. Other shades in the range include two different greys and two different greens.
