I decided on these Stay Perfect eye colour mousses and ended up getting two as I got a second £5 off voucher. These are usually £9 so I was able to snap them up for £4 each! The tubes are only little and contain 5g of product, but you don't need to use a lot so they will probably last a long time.
I'm noticing a very obvious trend with the colours I always seem to be drawn to these days - nude and taupe colours. A little boring maybe but they're my faves and I know they suit me as I have brown hair and eyes. The colours I picked up are called Pewter and Vanilla.
I have to point out that these come with a little seal. I always like it when you can tell the product you've picked up is brand new and hasn't been molested in the shop!
So here we have some swatches.... in daylight! Vanilla on the left and Pewter on the right.
Here's vanilla again. It's a lovely pale pinky cream colour, a perfect eye colour for a quick and simple all over wash of colour and also as a base for building upon. The only thing I didn't like so much about this was the texture. I found it a bit powdery / lumpy whereas the Pewter colour is much smoother. It means this isn't as easy to apply as I was expecting - I needed to really blend the product on my hand and then apply with a brush.
I thought this colour would double-up as a hi-lighter but I think that's out of the question because of the slightly strange texture.
And here's Pewter. I've been wearing this one a lot already. As I mentioned, it's got a different texture from the Vanilla colour and goes on really smoothly. It's also a colour that's easy to build so it's quite versatile depending on whether you want a subtle or bolder colour effect.
I'd never tried these eye mousses before, so I'm really pleased that I picked them up on this deal. I would probably try another colour if it had the smooth texture of the pewter one rather than the slightly strange texture of Vanilla.
These colours are ones I'll get loads of use out of, and I'll remember I have them in my collection as the packaging matches the colour of the product which is a nice touch!
Did you buy something with the £5 off vouchers?
