If you don't like to look heavily made up and migrate more toward softer, natural colors, I know you would love the two IT Cosmetics Luxe High Performance Eye Shadow Trios that I have been using.  Both compacts take browns and creamy beiges to new exciting levels, one in a matte form and the other as a glistening pearlized version for maximum eye impact.

Ladies that are no longer twenty-something like yours truly have more than just color and great staying power to think about.  You want an eye shadow that can give those slightly less than perfect eyes a lift as well with anti-aging ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, green tea, grapeseed, acai and vitamins to keep the area smooth and vibrant.  Add age-friendly neutral colors and combine some strategic placement of the dark and light shades and you will be able to open your eyes for a younger appearance thanks to IT Cosmetics innovative formula.

The Matte Luxe compact has Cashmere, (a matte creme-ivory color), Earth Angel (a matte beige) and Espresso (a matte deep chocolate-brown).  The Pearl Luxe has Je Ne Sai Quoi (a shimmering nude pink), Ipanema (golden beige pearl), and Espresso (matte deep brown).

These Luxe High Performance Eyeshadow Trios have richly pigmented powder and a velvety texture that can cling for hours without creasing or fading and glides over your lids easily.  

Using the No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Eyeshadow Brush also sent along for this review made for flawless application.  I didn't experience any real problem with fallout as I applied with the way this double-headed brush picked up the powder.  Having a fluffier head on one end in addition to a thinner one for working on smaller areas, especially near the lids to line, really makes this brush indispensable.

For playing up your eyes, I honestly love IT Cosmetics Luxe High Performance Trios and No-Tug Heavenly Luxe Dual Eye Shadow Brush.  Both retail for $24 each.  Find them online at  IT Cosmetics or at QVC,, Ulta Beauty, the Shopping Channel, and 

Take it from this IT girl, I highly recommend their fine cosmetics.  All it takes is one happy purchase and you too will be hooked on their products when you see that beautiful difference their anti-aging cosmetics can make!
