Sunday Riley's Prismasilk Eye Color Eye Shadows come in 32 shades ranging in finishes from mattes to satins to shimmers, and finally to vibrant metallics (click here to see my overview and preliminary review from the November 2011 launch). All of the shades are gorgeously pigmented and ultra-finely milled making them exquisite to the touch. In fact, they are so soft and creamy that you will be tempted to apply them with your fingers! This luxurious formula is long-wearing and highly pigmented which is always a winning combination. These shadows are formulated to be worn wet or dry, alone or blended, and with or without a primer. They also work beautifully as eye liners- which I have found work best when applied wet rather than dry.
Sunday Riley uses advanced Air-Milling technology which is credited for creating this ultra-fine luxurious texture. Air-milling evenly disperses the pigment throughout the entire shadow ensuring absolute consistency in every single application from the first use through the last one at the bottom of the pan. This alone makes a super concentrated single-stroke application- so you won't find a patchy, chalky, or inconsistent shadow anywhere in the Sunday Riley Eye Color range. The additional use of micronized spherical pigments create long wearing color that is always effortless to apply.
In an effort to provide you will the most accurate view of all of the Sunday Riley Prismasilk Eye Color Eye Shadows- I decided to break this into several posts. Each post will consist of a 4-6 eyeshadows following each row in the display case. This is the order selected by Sunday herself- so I thought that there was some wisdom in presenting it as it would be viewed at Barneys. Click on photos to enlarge.
|Indigo Waves: A beautiful dark teal blue with some grey|
|Cocoa Bean: A rich deep dark cocoa brown with shimmer|
*Leprechaun: Complex olive bronze shimmer (the display case has many shades duplicated- I accidentally swatched Leprechaun twice- you will see it again in row IV where it rightfully belongs). It is also important to note that the stock image on the Barneys website has labeled the wrong shadow Leprechaun. Thankfully I still had the older correct version which is what you see here.
