You can have the most beautiful eyes with just a bit of patience and technique.  Of course, you need quality products to help pull your transformation off and what I suggest is this excellent duo from IT Cosmetics that I received to review.  Their Luxe High Performance Eye Shadow Trio (Pretty in Amber) used with the No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Eye Shadow Brush is definitely worthy of your lids and your purchase because these are quality.

How can you tell a quality eye shadow?  When shopping and you zero in on that fabulous color or colors in that new palette, a good indicator is to swipe some of that eye shadow powder on the back of your hand first.  If you notice the powder you just applied glides on easily and evenly without interruption, this is an excellent indicator on how well this powder will coat your eye.  

Another is to feel the texture of the powder itself.  Rubbing a bit of shadow between your fingers should feel silky and not grainy. Rough texture is a sign of poor quality that should be avoided because it is prone to clump for you.

However, the Luxe High Performance Eye Shadow Trio came out a winner when subjected to the texture test.

Yippee, right, there are lots of quality eye shadows on the market.  Yes, I agree.  But IT Cosmetics has infused their formula with anti-aging ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, green tea, grapeseed, acai and vitamins that may or may not help the aging process all that much, but it does give this product noticeable hydration when applied for enhanced smoothness with extraordinary color.

Pretty in Amber is such a gorgeous neutral trio of well-pigmented colors too that has wonderful lasting powder that won't crease for hours even without primer.  This set has a gleaming bronze, a beige-brown with a bit of orange, and a creamy bone shade that looks as beautiful in the palette as it does on your eyes.  

To guarantee your shadow makes it through a hot, humid summer day, I do make it a habit to use primer first.  This will extend that the length of this long lasting trio and keep you looking fresh and perfect for added hours until you want to take it off.

Using the No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Eye Shadow Brush is a pampering experience.  This is a beauty must-have tool that is double-headed and works like a charm as it tenderly sweeps over your lids.  The one side has a fluffier head with somewhat dense bristles that locks onto more powder at once easily and blends like a dream when worked.  The other head is thinner but just as wonderful to use especially for concentrating on smaller areas, especially  near the lids to line. 

Since your eyes are your most magnetic feature, then I do strongly encourage you to let IT Cosmetics help you bring them out with their Luxe High Performance Trio and No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Eye Shadow Brush.  Both retail for $24 each.  Find them online at IT Cosmetics or at QVC.

Personally, I am eager to try  Luxe Pearl and Luxe Matte.  Then again, Pretty in Smoke is calling out to me. If IT Cosmetics are a new brand to you, then I hope you look into these because you are missing out on a beautiful secret only the rest of us, IT girls know.
