Un-Mellow Yellow - 60
I saw an awesome eye look the other day on Instagram that left me with a burning desire to recreate it. The color combo, I thought, was a bit unusual - unexpected, I should say - and I don't know how the pairing would play out on my skin tone, but I'm still geeked to try it. It incorporated a fair share of yellow into its design, which is a color I'm totally unafraid of... a color I absolutely can't wait to rock this summer... a color I happen to own an excellent rendition of and would love to tell you all about. It's a groovy little number from Inglot: #60.
#60 is an unapologetic canary yellow. It is bright and bold with goldish-yellow sparkles dispersed throughout the shadow. However, these sparkles do not translate onto the eye at all, which may be a bummer for some, but doesn't bother me at all. It is potently pigmented, buttery soft to the touch and performs like an ace - especially over top a color-enhancing white or yellow base, which really allows the canary yellow to "sing" on the eye. It has a matte finish.
So, can you totally dig the sunshine vibes this yellow bird is sending out? I can! And I think I'm going to take it for a spin and give that eye look I mentioned earlier a go-go. Hopefully, it'll be a Rembrandt success and look good on me. But just know that if it turns out to be more Pollock in nature and things go left, I will NOT be posting the evidence! Not happenin', cap'n!
In the meantime, if your interest in this eyeshadow has been piqued (even a tad) and you're drawn to vibrant hues, I urge you to check #60 out for yourself. It's a high-flying yellow that hits all the right notes and definitely deserves a look-see!
Inglot #60 is available at Inglot boutiques and select Macy's, and retails for $7.
