A few weeks ago, I got another unexpected gift from my dear friend in Ohio who definitely knows my taste in makeup! She’s the kind soul who sent me the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek blush that I adore and reviewed a while back, and she added to my TT collection by sending me one of the Eye Dream Hypershadow singles in the gray shade named Chain. Look at these two cuties together. They’re smiling!
Here is the eye shadow:
Here’s how Sephora describes the TT shadow singles:
“An exclusive, pressed-eyeshadow formula with high-intensity pigment payoff.What it does:These bold shadows with hyper pigmentation come in matte and variety of shimmer/pearl, glitter versions. Jet Mill Technology is used to pulverize formula into the smallest particle, which gives shadows their velvety texture. The maximum pigment load, 20-50 percent more pigment with less binder, produces the rich color payoff that is sure to get you noticed.”
The adorable packaging is pretty much the same, thank goodness, as the packaging for the Tarina Tarantino blush but smaller. I love the girly bejeweled look! According to Sephora, the 26 crystal gems are hand-placed on the jewelry inspired case. Wow.
Chain is a medium gray satin that’s perfect for bringing out the blue in my blue-gray eyes.
I’ve used it both as a crease and V shade and also all over my lid. The pix I’m showing here are the all over lid look.
I find Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hypershadow easy to work with. I haven’t found that there’s any fallout or mess. It’s buttery and blendable. It has a velvety finish. I always wear eye shadow over primer, and this shade lasted forever on my lids with no creasing or fading. I’ve worn it for 10 hours with no issues.
The Hypershadows were introduced by Tarina Taratino about 5 years ago. There were 24 shades in the line that included mattes, satin shimmers and glitters. Now, I’m not sure what the availability actually is. On the TT website, they are selling 4 shades (grass green, violet, squash, and black), and Chain is not one of them. Each case contains 0.09 oz./2.5 g. They do not contain parabens. They are cruelty-free. The price is $19.00. Made in Canada. More available are the shadow duos for the same price.
Ingredients may include: Mica, zinc stearate, dimethicone, squalane, lauroyl lysine, silica, glyceryl caprtlate, nylon-12, hydrogenated lecithin, pearl powder, trimyristin, potassium
