|Beauty Is Life eyeshadows come in a compact with a sturdy flip top lid.|
The Beauty Is Life eyeshadow range yields some of the silkies, smoothest, most crease-free shades I have ever encountered. I selected Camel (17 w), which is basically the color that its name implies, because I like neutral shadows that I can wear everyday. What makes this shadow unique to my collection is the fact that it is completely matte and I usually wear neutral shadows with medium to heavy shimmer, like Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in #15.

The Beauty Is Life shadow in Camel is like wearing velvet…it is so silky and is extremely pigmented, especially for a light color. I put it over a bit of Edward Bess Eye Primer (review forthcoming) and it seriously lasts all day.

I love that the subtle shade of Camel allows it to be worn all the way up to the brow bone should I chose. It is muted without being blasé and remains glowing all day despite the fact that it is completely matte.

Bottom Line: I am so happy that I went out of my comfort zone and selected this shade…Camel is a sophisticated neutral that is suitable for everyday use, adding polish and illumination (without the shimmer) in an understated way.
