Shimmery Shiny Shadow

The St. Tropez Rollerball Eyeshadow Set by Bella II Fiore is a cute little eyeshadow set that works nicely for blending the colours together. The vials of shadow are quite small but should last awhile, even if you reapply the shadows a couple times each use. If you're a fan of shimmer, you'll love these shadows. They'd also make excellent gifts or stocking stuffers for the holiday season!
Published:
Pros:
Shimmery, stays on all day, nice colours for blending, easy to use, compact.
Cons:
Need to apply a few times to make colours stronger, loose so it gets all over cheeks, etc.

extremely useful review
The St. Tropez Rollerball Eyeshadow Set by Bella II Fiore arrived in a cute little cardboard packaging. The front of the packaging has a clear plastic window so you can see the eyeshadows that sit inside. The front states the company name and collection name. The back of the packaging has a brief product description, an ingredient list, and states the company website. The packaging can be used for storing the eyeshadows or recycled.

There are 4 vials of eyeshadow in the set. They are much smaller than I had expected them to be. Each vial stands just a smidge over 2 ½ inches tall and has a circumference of just a tad over 2 inches. Each vial is clear so you can see the colour inside. There is a bit of writing and design on the vials in gold colour. Below is a size comparison of the vials. I have placed the vials next to a cap off of a 2L bottle of pop.

IMG

The lids to the vials are also a gold colour. The lids twist onto and off the vials nicely. The eyeshadows should not get on anything in your purse, makeup bag, etc if you have the lid done up tightly. I did not taste the eyeshadow so I can’t tell you if there is a taste to it… I strongly recommend that you don’t eat the eyeshadow though. I also did not detect any scent to the shadows, even when I put my nose right up to them.

The ingredient list is not listed on the individual vials but is listed on the packaging. The ingredients that are listed on the product page are correct but terribly misspelled. The ingredients as listed on the product packaging are as follows: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Red 40 Lake, Phenoxyethanol, and ethylhexyglycerin. The eyeshadows are paraben free and not tested on animals. I didn’t find the ingredients to be bothersome or irritating to my sensitive skin even when I applied the shadows to my arms (for photos).

The ingredient list is rather small so I’ll let you know what each ingredients purpose is. Mica gives the product a sparkly white appearance. Titanium Dioxide gives the shadows a whiteness and helps increase opacity (non-sheerness). Iron Oxides give the shadows their colour. Red 40 Lake is another colorant to the shadows. Phenoxyethanol is a preservative and the ethylhexyglycerin is a preservative specifically for the Phenoxyethanol.

All four eyeshadows are a variation of the brown colour so they pair well together. The colours are as follows:

“Bronze”- this is the darkest brown in the set
“Riviera”- this is the second darkest brown in the set. It’s a copper-like colour.
“Bradot”: this colour is tan. I want to say it’s the third darkest but it’s not dark at all.
“Sunshine”: this colour is wheat and the lightest.

Both Bradot and Sunshine are very light in colour and it’s actually hard to tell which is the lighter of the two. I applied all of the colours on my arm and labelled which colour is which. All of the colours in the photo below are accurate of the actual colour of the product (no flash, etc).

IMG

When I first tried the shadows, I was annoyed with the rollerball applicator. It seemed to only roll out a nice amount half of the time. The other half of the time nothing would come out. I found that if I shook the vial before trying to roll the applicator, it would come out much nicer so I suggest doing that if you are having that same issue that I did. Another thing you can do is pop the plastic roller ball piece off the vial. I did this a few times to get at the shadow with a brush. The plastic piece comes off with a bit of tugging and can be put back onto the vial afterwards.

IMG

The shadows are very, very shimmery! The shadow is loose inside of the vial (like powder) and very light. When you apply the shadow, you’re going to have it fall onto your eyelashes, cheeks, etc. You’ll probably want to do your eye makeup before applying any face foundation, blush, etc so that you can wipe the fallen shadow off with a damp cloth.

You may want to apply a primer to your eyelids before applying the shadow if you’re looking for a heavier look, and apply more than once. Alternatively, you can pop the plastic piece off the top of the vial, wet an application brush, and then apply the makeup to your eyes with the application brush. When you roll the eyeshadows onto your eyes, you’ll want to have a brush handy or use your finger to blend it/soften the edges.
Experience
...continued

The shadows seem to stay on the eyes for a while. I had the shadows on all day yesterday and the colour had only faded slightly by the end of the day. It’s a nice shadow and even though the vials are small, $3.74 per bottle is a decent deal. I do have shadows that I prefer to the rollerball set but they were much more expensive. The overall quality of the makeup is good and is non-irritating to sensitive skin. I’m no makeup expert but I think they’re pretty great and would recommend them.

I wanted to show you all the eyeshadow on my eyes after I had applied it. I have absolutely no makeup on (I do have coloured contacts in though) in the “before” photo below and I was too lazy to pluck my gnarly eyebrows so you’ll have to excuse them. I did not edit the photos other than crop them and put text on them.

IMG

To do this blended 4-colour look, I prefer my other eyeshadows but I figured I’d do a quick little “how-to” just in case any of you like it. I did use black eyeliner and black mascara, which you don’t get with the eye shadow kit. Also, I applied a primer to my eyes before the eyeshadow was applied.

Step 1: roll Bradot colour across and just above your eyelids-doesn’t matter if it’s a bit messy.

IMG

Step 2: roll Riviera colour across eyelid from inner corner of lid outwards ¾ of the way.

IMG

Step 3: Roll Bronze colour a little less than half way across the eyelid, starting from the outside. You’ll want to do this a few times. I did this about three or four times because you need a lot of the dark colour. Once you’ve got it nice and dark, take a brush (any brush will do- I used a cheap dollar store applicator brush where you can get like 100 for a dollar- you don’t need fancy) and start rubbing the dark brown colour in little circles. Continue from the outer area of the eye and start blending this colour all along the crease of your lid and slightly above it (you’ll see the outcome in the next steps photo).

IMG

Step 4: Roll Sunshine colour across the brow bone. Now blend it with a brush (or your finger) all along the bottom of your brow and downwards into the bronze.

Step 5: This is the only step you’ll need to take the roller ball plastic piece off the vial. Take a thin brush and get it a bit wet at the tip. Dip into Bronze colour and outline the bottom of your eye.

IMG

Step 6: Take Sunshine colour and roll colour in a small circle at the inner area of your eye (obviously close them when you do this). Then blend with brush.

IMG

Step 7: Add mascara and eyeliner. You may want to do each step a few times so the colours are stronger.
