This silky Wet/Dry formula can be used as a shadow or a liner, leaving a satin finish that lasts all day and into the night. There are 17 color families, divided into Cool and Warm so you can always find the perfect shade for your skin tone, and 6 highly-shimmering wet/dry Special Effects shades add dazzle to any look.
3 Custom Color Specialists offers a total of 56 shades of eye shadows. It divides the available shades into cool and warm. This review is for Cool Pebble–a cool, champagne-tan with shimmer.
This compact is made of metal-looking steel-colored plastic that has the “3″ logo on the top. Inside, you will find the eye shadow and, conveniently, a full-sized mirror. The packaging is simple and sleek. It’s also particularly lightweight and ideal for traveling with. The snap-shut lid will keep the compact from opening up in your bag.
This is the first pressed shadow color I’ve tried from this brand. If all or most of the colors have the same formula as Cool Pebble does, I’d say that 3 Custom Color Specialists has some of the best eye shadow formulas out there. The powder is silky-smooth and glides onto the skin amazingly.
There is no fall-out during application.
The color itself has very good pigmentation. The shimmers are extremely fine, so you get a refined sheen on the lids.
The color is also stunning, though subtle. It’s clearly a cool-toned color, but I think it would look fantastic with cool-toned skin and blond hair as well as darker, warm-toned skin.
Ease of Use: 10/10
This powder transfers onto the brush easily and glides over the skin evenly.
For $22.50 you get 0.08 ounces of shadow. MAC eye shadows are $15.00 and contain 0.05 ounces. 3 Custom Color Specialists’ eye shadows provide slightly more product for the price.
