THE GOOD: I really like the compact that this comes in. It's portable and cute. I also enjoy the colours in this duo.
THE BAD: You don't really get that much product for the price, it was $12 Canadian for the compact. It seemed like I had to apply a lot to get the colours to show up and it seems like they would get used up fairly quickly. I applied these to the eyelid with a concealer brush (my makeup application techniques are rather SKETCHY to say the least) as I thought the product would be stiffer......wrong! It is very creamy in texture but really hard to blend and build the colour. On the lower lashline, I applied it as an eyeliner with an angled brush which went a lot better, but it seemed to smudge quite a bit.
THE UGLY: This product is named "KEEP IT GOING" which indicates to me that it is supposed to be long wearing. I am not a huge fan of cream eyeshadows to begin with as my oily skin is not kind to them, but this one started creasing right after I took my pictures. Applied as eyeliner, it did a little better but still smudged super easily.
THE INDIFFERENCE: This product is nicely packaged and named so I was attracted to it. The colours are....meh. It wears and blends poorly as an eyeshadow (though the poor blending is also perhaps related to poor technique). It wears a little bit better as an eyeliner but it might work better for creating a smudged line rather than a precise one. Overall, I'm not particularly impressed.
Here is a look I put together to try the Industria shadows/liners out. It really didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. The application is $h!t, the blending is $#!t, and the lipstick I picked was not the colour I thought it was......I thought it was more purple-ish but it is actually rather brown based or something and it kind of doesn't go. BLAH.
FACE: MAC Prep and Prime, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.
BROWS: MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.
CHEEKS: Evil Shades Blush in Vixen.......this is a dark, vampy shade which I am loving!
LIPS: MAC Lipstick in Hipster.
EYES: Eyes were prepped with UDPP and MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. A thousand layers of the purple shade were used on the inner lid and the grey shade was blended (I use the term loosely) into the purple shade and into the outer V. The purple shade was used as an eyeliner on the lower inner lashline and the grey shade was used on the outer lower lashline. Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero was used on the waterline. Maybelline Line Stiletto was used on the upper lashline. Maybelline the Falsies Mascara was used on the upper and lower lashes.
