So OMG how amazing is it that makeup and charity have come together on this beauty?! We so love when huge names and brands use their reach and influence to do good. And if you can do good and change lives with makeup then, HEY, even better! We are all about supporting collabs just like this! And can we just talk about how stunning of a shade this is?? It may seem at first glance like your standard silver but it totally has a subtle flip of a deeper shade, almost green at times. The only problem we see with this whole concept is how NOT universal this shade is. Like, have you ever worn this type of shade as a highlight on your cheek bones or bridge of your nose?? Probably most likely not. I would just think that if you’re coming out with a product for a good cause, wouldn’t the idea be to sell a ton of them?! (I mean, that’s probably always the goal no matter what but you know what I mean). And to sell a ton of something, wouldn’t it be best for it to seem to work for nearly everyone?? Now, does that make this any less of a stunning shade? No! But are many people going to be able to use this for it’s intended purpose? I don’t think so…

 

 

I’m not sure even exactly what skin tones this will work for. Anyone from fair to light to medium definitely cannot wear this on their face without looking like they accidentally dropped their eyeshadow brush. BUT, speaking of which, we LOVE this for an eyeshadow! This isn’t a shade you see in many palettes (we have NO IDEA why, we freaking love these cool toned silver and gray tones so much!) so this would be an incredible addition to so many collections! But are you willing to spend $34 on a giant eyeshadow?? That’s a tough call to make…
