How have we all been? Well, I officially start work on Friday so there's definite progress on that side of things. I have new arrival in my nest of red bunnies (Rouge Bunny Rouge), my first Long Lasting Matt Eyeshadow in Papyrus Canary. I am not particularly fond of many matt eyeshadows as I like, no LOVE shimmer from the lash line to the brow! But every now and then one requires a matt neutral for something more sophisticated... Here we have it.

And next up some swatches of course. I managed to catch a little bit of sunlight before the clouds took over! Currently on the search for a decent 'cheap; lamp and a daylight bulb for the darker seasons. This is a single sweep of shadow on dry skin.

As I mentioned above, I don't usually buy mattes as I find them a bit chalky to work with.. Plus I can't help but love shimmer! But Papyrus Canary is the most smooth, silky, soft texture I have ever touched. I wasn't expecting such a wonderful colour pay off, not to mention the glorious texture that I know from Rouge Bunny Rouge. This shade makes a perfect brow shade or all over base for my lids with any neutral look.
Of course, I had to have a little play with this one after swatching.
