Skin79 Kick It Side Fantastic Eyes in Trembling Blue, Mascara in Hedwig Lash and Let's Go Glam Eyeshadow Base in Come On

Better known for their BB creams, Skin79 also has a colour range named Kick It Side.

The packaging is a diversion from the simple aesthetics of the skincare products but a cheering difference.

Here are my thoughts on a couple of items from the range: Let’s Go Glam Eyeshadow Base in Come On and Fantastic Eyes Eyeliner in Trembling Blue.*

Skin79 Kick It Side Fantastic Eyes in Trembling Blue and Let's Go Glam Eyeshadow Base in Come On Swatches

Come On is a metallic pearl shade with a golden cast. An eyeshadow primer, it works well on its own, giving subtle shimmer to the eyes. It’s an easy product to work with – a brush or fingertip lifts the colour without difficulty, and it goes onto the lids without dragging on the skin. I tried it on a friend, applying it from lash line to brow, and she was delighted with its gentle illumination. I gave it to her eventually and she was thrilled that she could wear it to the gym too, thanks to its budgeproof quality.

Trembling Blue is a subdued teal that’s good for those who want something a little softer than the vibrant blue-greens that are all the rage now. A retractable waterproof eye pencil, it moves smoothly across the skin and sets nicely. It’s a good complement to the primer, the teal standing out prettily against the sheer pale gold.

With their ease of use and lasting properties, I’d say both products are fuss-free and useful eye makeup products to own.
