For this woman knows the power of attraction lies in her eyes.
As a tribute to the designer’s greatest sources of inspiration, the collection features 11 compacts containing 5 ready-to-wear colours, each in a signature case.
Designed for intuitive application, “Pure Colour Catalyst“ technology delivers a wealth of effects in a single palette, from a simple, sexy, one-colour look to Couture creations of stunning audacity. Thanks to a creamy matrix containing oils, its ultra comfortable texture glides on the eyelid in in an opaque, even veil. It’s high-fidelity formula, with 12-hour gold, ensures perfect finish eye shadow that won’t smudge or run.
“As with a garment, colour is a question of careful measurements and just the right proportions. While there are no hard and fast rules, the base shade, applied along the lashes and blended upwards on the lid will open and intensify the eyes. The highlighter shade applies on the inner corner of the eye and along the curve below the eyebrow will illuminate the eyes”. – Lloyd Simmonds, beauty expert
